I’d like to take a moment and thank everyone that’s recently pitched in a few bucks to my paypal beer/carparts fund, and mostly from the gearhead-efi crew. Some donations have been especially generous.
I know that none of us LT1 folks are rich, especially after dumping so much into keeping these beat up old sports cars running. Every time I get an email that someone has thrown me a tip, big or small, it makes my day.
I’ve never really directly asked for anything for my time and efforts (…outside of putting a big ‘donate to beer fund’ button in the about tab of eehack, which will be in the next version…)
The timing has been really great, my wife has been out of work for some time now, so my car budget is shot, and my clutch throw-out bearing is starting to sound like it’s possessed by demons. Now I can afford a proper replacement.
Your donations have really demonstrated to me that:
- I did the right thing investing a lot of my free time into this project
- Taking the high road with “Free and open source” is the right way to go
- People actually do still tune LT1s!
- People find the tools useful and appreciate it, instead of seeing them as just a novelty
Just a few more things to tidy up, and 4.0 should be released soon!
