Data data everywhere

John Lohavichan @jloha312

So I've been looking at data to add. Currently I have 2 categories sleeping pads and electric skateboards. This was based off initial feedback from reddit forums.

I was asked to add tents next so I've been looking at how to do that. I've been modifying my database to account for different scenarios such as multiple categories per brand and different warranties depending on country. This is resulting in many complex scenarios. So what I thought would only take a week to re-code has taken about 2.5 weeks! Oh well comes with the territory.

But I feel I'm in a good place now and can enter more and more data until camping gear is completely covered which is my goal for the data. One short hop at a time :)
