Design Shop: After numerous external delays, serious health hiccoughs, family matters and more than a few steep learning curves, it would seem as though the new Design Shop software is finally functioning. There are still a number of tests that need to be completed to ensure that everything is running smoothly, however, that process should be resolved fairly quickly. Now the big hurdle is to track down why this site is taking so long to load, and to optimise images and CSS, thereby placating the great god google. See you SOON!

Good news: The way forward for the Design Shop has been resolved and I am currently migrating all products and coupons to a new to me cart system that, or so I understand from the documentation, seamlessly integrates with WordPress. So please bear with me a little longer whilst the process is completed.

Unfortunately, COVID persists and for me the last three months have been a whirlwind of “busy doing other things” to say the least. The glitch discovered in the Shopping Cart checkout system persists also and I just haven’t found it within my capacity to sort it out… yet. So, the shop downloads are currently offline as explained in this post here…
Update: 12:42pm Thursday 3 September 2020, Perth, Western Australia.
There has been a glitch identified in the Shopping Cart checkout system where a small amount is displaying as a Grand Total. This glitch applies to international customers only and is ONLY a display error. You will not be charged the GST if you are not an Australian resident.

Here comes the sun! But … Still experiencing intermittent interruptions thanks to cloudy days that are compromising the steady supply of power to my off-grid system. sketchPLATE Saturdays are still once monthly for the time being and wednesdayWISDOM is still on hold until further notice.
As always, thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

Well they say that nothing lasts forever and that is definitely true when it comes to the sun in the sky! Still experiencing power shortage limitations which are directly impacting production, however, the winter solstice has already passed now so things are steadily improving. sketchPLATE Saturdays are still once monthly for the time being and wednesdayWISDOM is on hold until further notice.
Once again, thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

Currently I am experiencing power shortage limitations which are directly impacting production. To manage this, I am restricting wednesdayWISDOM and sketchPLATE Saturdays to once monthly only until the Australian winter months are over OR until such time as I am again able to access electricity in public facilities.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

… aaaaaaaand we’re back!
Detecting a few minor, albeit annoying, issues with some of the downloads … stay tuned to your inbox for details.

Continued deepest apologies: the car-tastrophic equipment dysfunction that is causing a delay is currently in the process of being resolved aka the solar-tech-gurus are on it.
Hopefully everything will be back to normal shortly and … as I’ve said in previous website status updates … I shoulda multiplied my initial estimate by four and added two hours to get the rough time frame for when I can post more goodies. 😆
See you again soon.

Deepest apologies, wednesdayWISDOM will be a little delayed this week. There has been an equipment dysfunction that is causing a delay. 😔 Hopefully everything will be back to normal shortly and this week’s wednesdayWISDOM will be live either late tonight or early tomorrow.

The Home page redesign is mostly completed. Just a few more things to add now but the basic structure is now complete. I am reasonably happy with how it looks although … I can already feel complete site redesign itching to be started. #DesignerProblems 8D
