Lol...I just bought $60 of servos and stuff from HK and I won a tablet. I guess their Paypal drawing is real, after all!

More stuff has been added to my scratch-built website! Now I've got a products page that links to my eBay listings

A one-picture summary of why it sucks to be an Amazon seller, especially for low-cost products.

Got DNS working on the website I'm building, so now the domain name is a nice .com instead of a sketchy subdomain: jkmrcsolutions.com

Still have to work on uploading products, but it's definitely an improvement! This is my first "real" website that I've coded from scratch, so I'm definitely learning a lot! I'd love to hear what you guys think about the website

I'm still pretty jazzed that my total hosting and DNS costs are <$2 a month. Pretty good deal! I used grendel hosting for website hosting ($0.70/mo) and GoDaddy for the domain ($12.99/yr).

I've had a few years of programming experience in school, and thought I would try my hand at HTML and CSS! I'm building a website from scratch for my (tiny) eBay / amazon / RCGroups online business (mostly building small battery connectors and selling battery checkers, etc). I'd love to know what you guys think! This website isn't nearly complete, but I've got the general layout down and I've done some work on the "About" page

Edit: I've also got an FB page for it! https://www.facebook.com/jkmrcsolutions

I've started selling RC connectors on eBay! I got annoyed with being unable to check / balance my ultra micro batteries using standard charging equipment and voltage checkers, so I did a few hours of research, ordered connectors in bulk, and started soldering! I figured that I definitely wasn't the only person to have this problem, and so far I've been right. I'm really making less than minimum wage in dollars per hour spent, but I'm doing this mostly for fun and to help out fellow fliers. So far I've learned volumes about soldering tiny things and working within the limitations of the USPS (their machines are great at eating things)--but I think I've got the kinks in the production and shipping process ironed out by now. If you want a connector, PM me or check out my listings on eBay!
