This site is managed by WordPress. There are many advantages to using such a widely used platform. One disadvantage is that it’s a popular target for hackers and spammers. Dealing with comment spam is a nuisance, and I wanted some automation. The popular Akismet plugin is an obvious choice, and an expensive one. I’m trying out WP-SpamShield instead. It’s funded by donations and I’ll send something if I’m still using it in a couple of weeks. So far, I’m impressed. It has it’s own contact form so I’ve been able to remove two other plugins.
This is a prototype for a new lantern design. This is larger than the Tea Light lanterns I made earlier. It’s designed to be used with a Phillips 6cm diameter battery rechargeable candle. Cut from 6mm poplar ply. There are a couple of changes to make for the final product. About 18x10x18cm.
Here are two new LED tea light lanterns. The Celtic Cross was the idea of a house mate. The light bulb is my idea of humour. I have made one of each and will add these to the shop in the next day or two. The laser cutter project files will be available as a paid download in a day or two, as well.
I have decided to offer some Dragon Powered products as downloads. To begin with, I have added three sizes of my clip together, stackable trays. Once I’ve found someone to check the shopping experience, I will add more products including at least one box that uses my unique, all ply hinges. I’ll also be adding a couple of my tiny LED tea light lanterns.
