So I basically bought the most expensive digital level available in the market the OEM JIingyan TLL-90S and it is really a disappointment. The battery charging mechanism is odd, or maybe the battery of mine is dying? There is no battery charging indicator without powering on the system and even with that the battery drains within a day of usage.
Accuracy is also extremely poor, although you get exact numeric readings, there is no point if they are not accurate right? I honestly hope that I just got a bad copy, but this seller only seems to have 1 remaining and exchange is not possible.
If you really had to buy one of these, I highly suggest the cheaper variant which make more sense at the price point given how finicky this work.
A couple of months ago I purchase a couple of variant of this domain, as far as I understand, Verisign allows each registrar to request via EPP to sort of renew expiry dates by padding up based on a dollar a month or so.
There is a couple of big registrar that offer this service however but I ended up picking name.com because the interface to do this seems simple enough. Well, it didn’t work out as plan because the interface is “down for maintenance” since last year.
So today I decided to give those bulk reseller registrar(domainnameapi.com) a try, since they suppose to expose the API and pretty much act as a API gateway right? So I signed up and shifted my .net and .com over, and lo and behold, the API provided doesn’t seems to support it.
I am wondering right now if I should move the domain back to a larger registrar like godaddy before finally moving them to cloudflare. These steps is going to take a long long time with all the transfer lock and blocks.
I just realized that you can “buy” WinSCP from Microsoft Store. You may be wondering why since WinSCP has been a free project, getting it from Microsoft Store is a great way to donate to the team while keeping your copy up to date automatically.
A decently well maintained ISCO Ultra Star 2.1(red), quite happy with the purchase and only has a minor chip in the rear element. Might dip some black pain to fill it in the future but it seems to be alright for now.
