I have started writing a new script that uses OpenAI.com's API interface to generate text and images from simple text queries. It's in alpha but fully functional. Check out the details page here and the site here.
Captchas and other updates

Captcha's have finally arrived to cut down on the spammy mc spambots that have been plaguing my inbox for the past year! I am looking for funny ones so if you have any suggestions, use the Contact Us link at the bottom.
The code has been cleaned up fairly well and the forums are under development.

Did I mention I hate Mysql?
I chose to use Sqlite for file databases for simplicity and ultimate portability. I could use 1 file for configs, another file for per user settings, etc.
Now I'm seeing the performance impacts as the codebase grows larger.
I need to find a better solution than to say rewrite the code just for 1 database type. Sure theres abstraction layers but I remember years ago they were somewhat limited. Some features were implemented for mysql while not for postgresql, and hardly any for sqlite. It was a pain in the ass to support 2 let alone 3 DB types. I'm hoping this has changed in 2018.
The development version of FFS has added mailboxes /w attachments, pdf output, dynamic directory support, a hidden mode for I2P & Tor, with many more features planned. The need for more and more database calls is growing and I already see sqlite crying bloody murder here and there in the logs.
A need for a pause and a partial rerwite has come.

3D Printing to rescue... the Toilet!

Needed a part to fix the toilet so I opened up Tinkercad and designed a Flush Arm Catch and printed it along with a new Toilet handle and arm.
