Journal
(Not So) Deep Refletions This Week
I admit I haven't been working on my art as much as I'd hoped; aside from a heavy week, a recent event here in the U.S. happened that's really got me pondering and trying to sort out my feelings. I normally don't talk about controversial subjects, but perhaps expressing my thoughts will be therapeutic.
As some of you may know, last Wednesday, on Valentine's Day, a gunman entered a Florida school and opened fire, killing 17 students and staff. I've seen footage posted by students recording the incident, and it was heartbreaking. I can't imagine what it's like to be in that kind of situation, and I won't pretend that I understand. I feel mighty privileged to never have had to deal with something like this, but I'm betting that that's exactly what the kids in the school thought before last Wednesday, in a relatively safe city in the country. At this point, anything could happen anywhere. No one feels safe anymore.
If I'm being honest, I feel like I've been sort of apathetic towards these

So, it looks like we’ve come full circle on net neutrality... again! :iconyoudontsayajplz:

Some probably remember my previous journal entry:
Net Neutrality! And Money!Some probably remember this issue from little over 2 years ago. Here was my previous journal:

So, while I’m not a fan of big assumed federal government, I’m also not a fan of oligopolies. Crony Capitalism is just as bad as Democratic Socialism. That said, eBay sent a message linking to https://netneutrality.internetassociation.org/action/?utm_medium=web&utm_source=ebay&utm_campaign=nn-action and Etsy sent a message which linked to https://www.battleforthenet.com/?utm_source=etsy&campaign_label=recommended_features&utm_source=adhoc&utm_campaign=2017_07_12-ADV-Sellers-InternetSlowDownSeller-AERIKSON&utm_medium=email .

The oligopolies are hard at work to make sure they get as much of your money as possible, particularly the telecom and federal industries, (especially when the work so closely together...  like sleeping in the same bed with the FCC’s chair being a former lawyer for Verizon). :iconfacehoofplz:

Fortunately, you can do something, make your voice heard! Here’s some notable avenues:

Here’s an article describing how to file a comment on the FCC website: venturebeat.com/2017/05/08/how…

Here’s the relevant proceeding on the FCC’s website: www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/procee…

“Do Not Repeal Net Neutrality” petition on Whitehouse.gov: petitions.whitehouse.gov/petit…

Call your representative through Battleforthenet.com:

Moveon.org petition:
pac.petitions.moveon.org/sign/…

And if you’re feeling energetic or have a Verizon store nearby, check out the details under this deviation:

That’s all for now. I’m still working on the SubShed, (nearly complete), and preparing Mane and Tail patterns for Etsy! :D ...As well as another pattern still in the works. ^^

I do take commissions. :) Pony, anthro, or whatever, (though my next focus will probably be further developing my anthro pattern).
*If you are interested in an OC, know upfront that prices are typically 20-50% more due to development and varies by complexity.*

Notes about my plushies:
-Current List
-Pricing and Commission Details
-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. :)
-I do plan to distribute my patterns and embroidery files in the indefinite future.
-My plushies are made with minky fabric. Accessories may be either minky or ultra cuddle.
-Stuffed medium-firm
-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!” :stare: 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 7
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: An 80s 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.
Interests

Activity


...It’s that day I consider the interesting fact that while most of my watchers are female, I still don’t have any romantic relationship with anyone. :iconajawkwardsmileplz: Nevertheless, have a happy Valentines Day! ...regardless of your status. ^^

Everyone be sure to have a safe and very Merry Christmas, (if you celebrate it or some form of it), and a Happy New Year! ...Everybody observes the new year, right? Ptff, like we have a choice, eh? :XD: But let's make it better all the same! :D

Update: Never mind. I suppose I just lacked the confidence before, or hoped that my first conventional attempt would’ve fixed the problem. (I just tried to solder the two ground and power connections, but the data pins were the problem, which is sadly relevant to chargers these days to determine load capacity.) But apparently I didn’t need a surface mount solder rework station after all. My regular soldering iron and the right flux worked great! Just added a little leaded solder paste, (the good stuff ^^), fluxed out the solder bridges, tested for shorts, and to my surprise and delight, it actually worked out great! :D

Previously:
Would anyone have any recommendations for an Android GSM phone that can withstand a fair degree of mechanical stress on it’s USB/charging port? (Do you have any thoughts on the new USB Type C port?) My Plum phone has finally flaked out and I don’t have the soldering equipment I need to repair it. :hmm: Also, it needs to be able to read a 128GB micro SD card.

Mane 6 Mane and Tail Patterns are now live! :D

I think I've seen some ponies with a face that's similar to the mask like yours form some group deviations. Ponies slime onto other ponies or something like that. ^^ Kind of reminds me of Venom form Spiderman. :)
Thank you! :thanks:

Thank you very much for faving my poem about Remembrance Day. That meant a lot. Also forgive me for my lack of responses at times, I have been busy even though I had to quit my job. Strange! :O! It just got too much but I am doing alright though. My body got back five years of energy it lost in two weeks! I hope you are doing well sir! :)
