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…

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. ^^

CURRENT UPDATE:

Still active, just been working different projects. One’s a simple 60 second valve timer that will culminate into a small production run of 10 units. The other is a SubShed, (a wide door add-on for our old shed), for dad to store the new lawn mower. An extensive project to be sure, but it will be quite nice when complete. :D ...As long as mom doesn’t immediately use up the space in the old shed that’s needed to actually walk about freely within the shed. :iconapplejackreally: I’ll be posting the process on my Patreon. :)

Some probably remember this issue from little over 2 years ago. Here was my previous journal:
Net Neutrality?UPDATE: Meh, on either side of the coin consumers lose. This entire video is very informative, but the conclusion is well also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Z_nBhfpmk4&feature=player_detailpage#t=4176 Here's my personal conclusion: "Even if someone could press a reset button with neither the government nor the telecom companies having any financial or regulatory involvement with each other, one or the other will inevitably get back together to fiddle around with the lives of others." See comments below for details if you're interested. ^^'
Call your senators, please: https://www.battleforthenet.com/?call_tool=1

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 netneutrality.internetassociat… and Etsy sent a message which linked to www.battleforthenet.com/?utm_s… .

On the www.battleforthenet.com/?utm_s… page, they had a selection of videos form popular channels, and the first one I watched really seemed to strike pretty square with my thoughts. That said, I know very little about this guy, other than I remember his Chocolate Rain video that went viral.


www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfJaio…

However, I have to agree with Lou Prado’s comment:
“Fantastic!  However, your analogy at the end regarding the roads is too optimistic.  While the road provider may promise a faster road to one restaurant over another, in reality you may never get that "faster" road since it is more profitable to put pot holes in the slow road which transforms the previously standard road into the "fast" road.”

Further down the battleforthenet.com page, it says, “They are Team Cable. They want to end net neutrality, to control & tax the Internet.” And has the logos for Comcast, Verizon, Time Warner Cable, and  AT&T. I’d like to note that I don’t think there’s a single global-wide company I hate more than AT&T. They bought DirecTV, (which explains why their hardware tech-support service is now practically worthless). But did you know AT&T is in the the process of acquiring Time Warner Cable? Ever heard of Google Fiber? Because of the likes AT&T, they have trouble making headway.

Of course this kind of thing also happens on the local level. Perhaps you’ve heard of Buc-ees? If you’re form Texas, more than likely you know and have probably been to one. I detest Buc-ees, because like AT&T, they are a sue-happy bunch who doesn’t like the idea of competition:
www.tabberone.com/Trademarks/H…
They even sued their own brisket supplier! :iconapplejackreally: Also, they sadly have money invested into Republican representatives, to represent their interests of course, (not yours).

So, all this talk about a self-regulating industry vs. government control. What’s best? Well, the answer from each side is probably something along the lines of, “that which gives us more money and control over the market.” I mean, the government can be bought and sold depending on who’s in office right? That’s what lobbyists get paid to do. And likewise the government can buy and sell whomever they want. Remember all the bailouts? I mean, it’s not like it’s their money anyway. (Or that they technically even have money being multiple trillion in the red.) The private banks suck it up form both sides, particularly the Fe‏deral Re‏serve, (whom other banks have vested stock interests).

All this beating around the bush! Why can’t we get to the heart of the matter, (the hearts of mankind that is)?

1Tim 6:6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain.
1Tim 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
1Tim 6:8 And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content.
1Tim 6:9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.
1Tim 6:10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. [emp. added]

Certain people just love their money too much to value their own human decency, or ever their own soul.

Since we’ve actually had Net Neutrality passed without hazardous effects insofar as I can tell, I think we should probably keep it around while the likes of companies like AT&T are chomping at the bit to make more money while still providing poor service. That’s my :twocents:. :)

Loss of things, brightness of friends. Charity.Oof. Where to start? To begin chronologically I had a great time at EFNW, for the most part. There were friends, food, and fans. After the con I packed up everything in my car, which was quite full due to having everything I own in it. I'm moving to the Seattle area, so as you can imagine the car was stuffed. I locked the car and went to bed for the night. When I came out in the morning my car, along with most of my worldly possessions, was gone. The gated parking, hotel security, the locks on the car, the stickshift, none of this prevented a thief from driving away with my life. I'm sure it looked like a great haul to them. I'd've liked to have seen their face when they opened up the boxes and saw a bunch of pony stuff.
The police and the hotel have been kind but it has been made very clear to me that the odds of anything returning to me after this much time has passed are very low.
99% of the things of sentimental value that I owned are gone forever. There aren't words here to descri

In short, :iconviwrastupr: needs help to restore some degree of basic needed possessions. He's lost everything to someone who will not escape the inevitable punishment awaiting them unless they change to become absolved. :iconajhmmplz: Hopefully the criminal will be caught, but in the meantime, please help spread the word! :eager:

And yes, I'll be answering notes as soon when I can, probably all of them today, (after sleeping ^^;).


Side rant: It's these kind of thing that make people like me all the more paranoid. :paranoid: I mean, what does it take? Should one need to remove their battery and disconnect their fuel lines as an extra precaution? Or secure their vehicle with a classic 9kV NST @ 30ma with no GFI rigged with one side on the steering wheel and another on spikes in the seat, activated by an open door?
... It takes 7ma to kill, so maybe that's literally overkill. ^^' Let me tell you a single 30ma jolt is not fun. :/

Why am I selling these?


So, as many people may know, I launched a Kickstarter for a PCB project of mine, and while it wasn’t too bad of a run, I definitely came up short. www.kickstarter.com/projects/9… What I did gain was a lot of experience and knowledge, but that alone can’t pay for anything unfortunately. ^^; I also need to clear up some space. :O

I was hoping and honestly thinking I would at least make my goal, (as nearly most other Arduino related projects have). I thought my attempt to reach out would be better received, but now I know while I may have a list of 100 people, I should expect a 10% response rate. :hmm: To have 250 backers, I need to have a list of 2,500 people. Maybe my timing is dreadfully awful, tough it wouldn’t be the first time. I admit that while I was hoping to expand the project, I’m now at a loss with development. I also thought I could help my dad finally buy a replacement riding lawnmower, (a real commercial one), to replace the $1k one he’s had for years, replacing the blade spindles every time they break, (poorly designed junk and only available as an assembly). The steering wheel recently started popping and couldn’t steer. Taking a closer look, the bottom bearing had worn lose, but luckily I was able to just rotate it 180 to the unworn side. :XD: Yay for simple fixes! :dummy: It's about to fail now, so dad will actually be getting his new lawn mower shortly without my help.

If you know anyone who might be interested, please let them know. :thanks: Thank you and have an awesome weekend!

CURRENT UPDATE:


As some of you already know, I’ve been working on a PCB project for a while now. I’m now happy to announce my project, the Protean 8x2, will launch on Kickstarter tomorrow!:
www.kickstarter.com/projects/9…



Please spread the word! I realize not many people here may be interested in this particular project, but the point is to get to those who may well be interested. :iconsmilingrarityplz:

So what is it? It’s affordable and Arduino programmable multichannel power control. After a long look at as many boards as I could find, none fit my criteria. They were over $100 with a fixed interface and protocol and required a separate controller. :O FETs were already included, which is nice, but that didn’t leave any freedom on how to configure it for different purposes or voltages. :hmm: These are the issues I have aimed to solve with the Protean 8x2! :D

What about plush?


Depending on the outcome of my project, I will be returning to plush, but not with commissions just yet, (as I think that’s what struck down a fair bit of my motivation). I want to work on different pattern first. :D

In other news, there are also greenhouses that need to be repaired, (among other things yet to be done). >_<

I could use some helpHey all. I've been arting like crazy recently as you can see. Trying for one piece every day and I've been doing pretty well for the past few months. I don't really feel I'm in position to take comissions or ask for paetron or anything, but you can still help me. I wrote a gift-registry website to help myself and my family keep track of gifts for each other. I could use some advice and feedback on how well it works, how clear the functionality is and so on.
If you want to try it out, check out http://famigr.com
Please let me know what you think!


So, if you’re that kind of person that loves to give people gifts and don’t want others to get two of what you may have wanted, or be the person that got the same gift :O, then I’d recommend you check out FamiGR.com. OR, if you’re like me, and your family has moved onto the less intimate gift-card approach, it also has price tracking and alerts for Amazon! :D


In other news, I’ll get to notes when I can! :eager: Been trying to find a decent, unlocked, non-free replacement for my phone due to the 2G shutdown from... that really sorry mega-corporate network carrier that now (unfortunately) owns DirecTV. :grump: I figure I’ll get a phone that will outlast a likely eventual 3G shutdown.

Tomorrow, Friday at 6:00pm, Nightmare Nights, Plush Making 101 with :iconthe-crafty-kaiju: and myself. Hope to see you there! :D After tomorrow, I will be making an effort to answer notes! :eager:

May not get Nightmare Moon done before Nightmare Nights. :saddummy: But I’m so close! :iconraritywhyplz:

At my next update I will have purged my current wait list. If you want to stay on the list, just leave a comment saying you’re still interested and are content to wait. (This excludes the Currently Allocated list, which remains unaffected.) This I’m doing for three reasons. Firstly, I think taking commissions with an uncontrolled, virtually endless, “whatever you want,” wait list has negatively affected my plush motivation, not to mention I don’t think it’s particularly efficient for my work habits. Secondly, I plan to launch a kickstarter not related to plush in the not-so-distant future as a partial result of the first reason. Thirdly, I want to make sure who’s still interested. It’s not like you can’t note me again. :) But I want to develop new plush! :O

Would anyone be interested in any of these items, virtually unused art supplies? Asking “price” for anything seen is just the cost of shipping. I want to get rid of all of it.

Haven’t had to deal with the trailer, but of course we had to have our main air handler unit replaced for the A/C, then my 30th birthday came up last weekend, went to a lectureship Monday and Tuesday night, and Wednesday got an e-mail from my web host more-or-less saying that I need to update my PHP version or they’ll start charging for extended security support, (which I don’t need or care to have in the first place). That translates to making minor tweaks to my (virtually unused) website that I certainly don’t have time to revamp entirely. :hmm:

CURRENT UPDATE:


Serial communications working... at 2M baud now! :D The protocols are almost complete, just need to change a few things and finalize setup and input handling. :eager: In other news, I’ve gotten the panel frames more-or-less complete, and dad was able to help too! :aww: In other news, my brother bought a travel trailer and has temporarily parked it here, which has ensued in it’s own issues, which has eaten into a a little bit of my available time in ways unexpected. So, hopefully more work will be done soon, probably Saturday is my hope.


Current statuses:

  • BobJet - Embroidery applique done.
