Re: [PLUG] PLUG patch (try #2)


I say etsy as well. I don't know anyone that says it E T C.

In a room full of sysadmins I got a weird look when I said "just edit etsy hosts". They all spell it out E-T-C, which is obviously 50% less efficient, syllable-wise.

Semi-related, I recently asked my 11yo daughter if she knew about Etsy (.com) and she said, sure, that's where config files go. :-)

LOL, I didn't even think about the connotation of using "patch".  Good one JP!

I saw one last night and it looked awesome.  But did anyone elses brain
break trying to parse how you can `patch` PLUG?  Why?  Does it have a
bug?  (Come to think of it, don't answer that last question!)

the email too big)

I've gotten more questions on this so I wanted to write it up.  A couple
of months ago, I wanted to create a PLUG patch for a bag so I grabbed
a PLUG logo from:

and then created the image I've attached to this email.  I forget if
images come through or not so here is the link below:

Its a 900 x 900 300dpi graphic which lends itself well to creating a 3"
x 3" patch.  The vendor I use for this type of stuff
is who are now doing PVC patches which are
thinner and allow one to use any graphic.  They also allow quantities of
1  :)

$7.00 USD plus shipping- you can beat that!

These patches are fabricated with the "hook" side of  what is commonly
called velco (generically called a "hook & loop" field.  The hook side
is the hard side and the loop side is the soft side) but if you can also
order a loop side in case you want or need to do a custom stitch job to
mount the patch.

I was going order 2 more for myself but I thought would ask in case
anyone else wanted one.  I don't mind doing a combined order if its not
too many people  :)  You can just pay me when it comes in (contact me
directly, no need to burn up list space.  Let me know by Friday morning
2/12 so I can submit the order that afternoon).

If not, I just wanted to share the graphic as it really is public domain
work extending from Stephanie Fox's work for PLUG.  I'm sure
others might have other ideas on how to promote PLUG with this or other
