This was the birth of the Truss Designer (Oct. 8, 2013) which eventually led to the Truss plugin and all the other plugins.

I was actually working out of a hotel for about 8 months, it wasn't much of a life but it did allow me to fully focus on my (side) work without any interruptions.

Notice the text sitting on the floor. Structural Analysis by R.C. Hibbeler. Without this text I would never have figured out the matrix analysis section of my code. Probably the most complex bit of code I've ever written, even to this day what it is does is like magic to me. Chapter 16 on Plane Frame Analysis using the Stiffness Method is the solution to the problem with which I was facing.
