Update 2020-08-05 Hi Folks! Just checking in to let everyone know that I will be sporadically offline for a few days. Tropical storm Isaias went through yesterday and knocked out power, cable Internet, and most cell phone service in our area. It will likely be several days before service is restored. I have a very slow and unstable connection at the moment, just enough to connect and leave this message. I apologize for shipping delays as well as not responding to email in a timely manner. Have faith that I will have a massive update to the tool list once we are fully back online. Thanks for your patience and support! --Josh
