We'll be performing a site update tomorrow requiring us to close for a bit beginning at 6:30AM. Estimated downtime is 30 minutes.

As always, please be sure to report any unusual or unexpected behavior post-update :)

Update Overview

All in all, the update went well. Lots of little bugs I'll be knocking out over the next couple weeks, but I haven't seen anything major so far.

I could watch that for hours!

By the way, did you notice the new 'soft' back button? Should greatly improve the web app. NWFA will be getting the update in the next few days.

I keep my brass in the bright blue "pencil" flame in the center of the cone of flame until I see the very first indication of a color change, then it gets flipped into cold water. I'll guess I have the brass in the flame for maybe ten seconds. My annealing tool is a 14mm deep socket that fits .532" heads. Chuck it into a 3/8" cordless drill and go to town.
