I no longer take commissions, generally speaking.
Notes about my plushies:
-Mares are ~13.5" (~34.3 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).
-Fillies are ~11" (~28 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).
-I draft all my own patterns with Photoshop/paper towels and make embroidery files with SophieSew.
-I don’t share my patterns or embroidery files with anyone, but I do have tutorials for SophieSew fav.me/d5dc5ef and offer advice when I can, but try to figure things out on your own if you’re really interested. Bear in mind that no one told me how to do this, but the information was available.
-My plushies are made with minky fabric. Accessories may be either minky or ultra cuddle.
-I typically make two passes of hand sewing for manes and tails and three for non-swiveling heads for better durability. I have had experience with things coming undone on some pony plushies I’ve bought. It also happened to my earlier Bon Bon right before I shipped her, at which point I declared “that is unacceptable!” So I try to prevent that.
-Smoke free home!
And here’s some old-school DA information that I just left here:
Current Residence: The Republic of Texas (I can dream can't I?)
Favourite genre of music: Classic Rock, Big Band and Swing, Celtic, Soundtracks
Operating System: Windows 9 or 11
MP3 player of choice: One that takes a USB drive and has a line out. (A modified a Zone Electronics Portable Mini Speaker)
Shell of choice: A 90s 4U server case, not that I'm using that though, there aren't enough mounts for drives
Skin of choice: Windows Classic (Customized)
Favourite cartoon character: If I had to choose: 1 female, too many choices. 1 male, Odd Della Robbia (who is straight BTW)
Personal Quote: Don't just look at the shiny side of a dirty coin.
I wonder, would you prefer a pocket calculator that has a backlight and uses batteries, or one that is solar and does not have a backlight?
The biggest problem with batteries for me is corrosion, at least for typical Alkaline. Having a solar calculator, I've actually been quite fond of it. Lately though, I've technically been using a calculator with a backlight that uses batteries, (but I'll admit it also happens to be my phone/comic book reader/book/camera/Bible/MP3 player/etc. ). But I admit an old-school calculator with a unique display would be neat to see.
Also, I hope to see you this coming Saturday!
Was actually going to ask how you've been doing. ^_^ (And somehow I missed hitting the reply button!)
There's definitely a defining factor between those two. The thing that makes digital meters great is since they're driven by a controller, usually they're much more versatile, like a multi-meter measuring voltage, current, resistance, or whatever with a simple flip of a switch.
Analog meters are usually limited in their designated function, but the one thing digital meters can't hold a candle stick to when compared to an analog meter is responsiveness. Analog meters don't have a refresh rate, they're live, so any fluctuations in measurement is immediately visually perceivable, so things like ripple voltage are much easier to see, (unless it's a low voltage, in which case a scope would probably be needed).
That said, analog meters are still used here and there. And for things like pressure, they never require a power supply.
Also, someone shared with me something you might be interested in. I honestly have never even heard of them before, but you may have given your interest in technological history: https://cyberdeck.cafe/
Looking forward to hearing from you!
We're doing alright. I built a device with an analog polarity meter and a speaker in it. I figured that it would function like a simple oscilloscope!
Glad to hear!
If you're looking for some notable unwanted signals, then I'd think that should certainly do the trick!
I think an iceberg has surfaced on the internet since I highlighted the 19S-8 display...
A YouTuber by the name of Brian Klier had quite a bit of information and a few stories behind Display Systems, such as the true founder and his wife catering to studios for different game shows back in the day... even making sports-type readouts like on the Item Up for Bid section of The Price is Right!
