Wiki Editor now "on staff"!
So I've taken the job of working on the wiki and getting it smoothed out. I've done a little on the home page for the controller, did I get any info wrong?

I realize some of it I pulled from the FAQ. However, if somebody gets a direct link to the base page, they'll be looking for a quick description before they even click through - so I figured spoon-feeding a paragraph or two would be okay.

Looks great! One thing, though is that the components are rated for 200v, but it's not safe to have a battery pack very close to 200v. 144v is probably the safe limit.

I shall do so. Tuesday are often my better nights to get some "wiki-ing" done, so hopefully I'll be on it some. I also have some client PCs to repair at home; I'm hoping that it won't take me long to finish it up.

Hi Nevyn,
Thanks for your post, until I saw this thread I didn't know a wiki existed, the little wiki link in the title bar seems to have always missed my attention in the past.

I had been looking for something like this to give more detailed info about mods/hypermiling so that we don’t have to search through all the threads for the best info. I also asked a question to the group if they would find it useful and seems to be a bit of interest around so I will be joining you in editing the wiki and making new pages in the next few days.

Its good to see your improving the existing pages. Im hoping yourself and others modify the pages I am soon to set up which will get some more interest in the wiki.

I ended up sitting in the hospital all evening with my wife and 3rd child, who was seemingly trying to come out too early. A few meds and everything is normal again.

So, I didn't get wiki time like I expected. Next available time: 05:30 to 07:30 Saturday...

NEVYN!!! Don't even worry about it. How many weeks is she along? Sabrina almost gave birth really early, like 24 weeks, but he ended up staying in until 41 weeks. haha. They had to induce. But she was on bed rest for like 3 months. That was horrible. Oops, I hope I'm not depressing you.

Nevyn 08-18-2010 11:16 PM

No worries. Due Oct. 4. Has medical history of issues (not just her, but several generations of...unpleasant...when it comes to that), so the doctor isn't taking chances.

Thankfully, no bed rest order - she'd go crazy!

MPaulHolmes 08-18-2010 11:27 PM

So she's around 33 weeks? All the important stuff has already been developed. (I have the schedule memorized, since I read it every day at the hospital for 3 months) PHEW! That's very very safe territory. 25 weeks is a milestone, 28 weeks, and 32. After like 31 weeks or so they're just mostly putting on fat.
