Re: How many of you really use the wiki?

We can't make an understanding of team software development technologies a prerequisite for writing articles in our technical information repository. 'compile, deploy, push to git' aren't part of a writer's workflow. Wiki already has a high enough learning curve for an average user. I completely ov...

Re: How many of you really use the wiki?

I realize that as-designed, it would have to build a bigger index, but if the search could be altered to do a live-search of the actual post database, it would no longer have to index at all, and the search would be able to find anything at all that actually existed. I'm sure it is nowhere near as ...

Re: How many of you really use the wiki?

The one thing i don't like about a version control system like github is that someone needs to be responsible for approving push/pulls. That's a boring job i doubt anyone will be interested in. Because of this, users can't edit the document and see the result appear on the web in realtime, as with ...

Re: How many of you really use the wiki?

I wonder if we could move towards a more "open-source" board solution. Hosted externally from Endless-Sphere's main servers. Such an example would be pages implemented in Github Pages. Although that requires the community to agree on a tool like Jekyll or Hugo. However, most of us can write markdown...

Re: Where do i get a nice controller that has all plugs for

The controller doesn't need to power your accessories, the battery does. All you need is another output from the battery which is easily possible using a splitter cable or a power pole. Then you could use DCDC converters to lower the voltage to a voltage which is suitable for your electronics.

AWS doesn't have the best value when considering price/performance. From a sysadmin perspective, it's easy to secure, backups/r...
