    had a few people ask me about my site lately

    this is it HERE

    we are auctioning off bulk water for use by farmers, the water has come from efficiency savings generated by automation systems being upgraded

    I selected WeBid as the basis for the system because it was open source, the code was easy enough to work with and it offered everything we needed (although we had to run the "beta" version on github)

    since starting work on WeBid my account has contributed a significant amount of code to the project mostly in the form of updating outdated third party modules like ckeditor, recaptcha and securimage and we have squashed a lot of bugs

    I cant take all the credit I have a guy working for me who has done most of the fixing of bugs

    we will continue to use WeBid and contribute to the codebase for the forseeable future as we recently ran our first auction and it was deemed a success

    guess no-one cares about a production 1.2rc2 site :(

    one of the benefits of the new "modern" theme is its very easy to drop in a bootstrap compatible css file to skin it

    i'm considering adding a function to backup, upload and select different skins for the theme based on this ability

    we are running a fairly old version of the 1.2 code its based on the code that came out just after the PDO conversion was completed, its fairly bug free, the known bugs in the system didnt affect our use

    we have been running a test environment internally bringing it up to date with the latest version of the 1.2 code and have been dealing with bugs constantly both old bugs and new bugs which get introduced with the new code that is being implemented for the pending 1.2 release

    I'm sure you are not talking about the version in Github. I had to fix ~200 bugs in it before going public.
