  1. The following may be of interest to readers. North Foreland - Wikipedia LB&SCR H2 class - Wikipedia William
  2. The article linked below contains some information about Wesley Bintz in relation to an earlier pool elsewhere. J.H. Moores Memorial Natatorium - Wikipedia William
  3. Looking back through the posts it seems to me that I need a language-independent glyph for the meaning that in English is expressed using the word 'sometimes'. I need to think about such a design. I assign code %883 for the glyph with that meaning. William
  4. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/138654-artwork-for-greetings-cards/&do=findComment&comment=1126868 William
  5. HideReferring to an earlier post in this thread, By referring to the list linked from the following post earlier in this thread, https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/138654-artwork-for-greetings-cards/&do=findComment&comment=781820 the glyph accessed by the code %845 can be found to have the meaning, when expressed in English, as follows. always William
  6. Here is a link to the post that has the link to the list of words in Esperanto. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/138654-artwork-for-greetings-cards/&do=findComment&comment=781820 William
  7. Regarding my choice of the codes %881 and %882, these are chosen so as to be compatible with the codes for some earlier designs, https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/138654-artwork-for-greetings-cards/&do=findComment&comment=782753 those being compatible with the codes used for designs in the documents linked from the following web page. http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~ngo/mariposa_novel.htm William
  8. Here is a design to mean however and here is a design to mean because The design to mean however is inspired by the first letter of the Latin word Tamen and then the idea that the word 'however' is used after stating something then either going back a bit in the opposite direction or going in another direction. For experimental use from an OpenType font, the code %881 is suggested. The design to mean because is inspired by the word 'because' being used after stating something so as to state clarification of the first thing that was stated, so I have used an equals sign followed by a second, linked, yet subsidiary, equals sign. For experimental use from an OpenType font, the code %882 is suggested. William
  9. Alas, no replies yet, maybe there never will be. Yet 318 views of the thread, and 27 downloads of the poster. William
  10. Researchers Discovered a New 13-Sided Shape (popularmechanics.com) > It's time for that bathroom remodel. Well, I suppose that if one is going to pottery class. Make one, maybe with a raised stem and berries on it, make a plaster mould from it, make lots of tiles. William
  11. i have only seen this thread today. Thinking about it, I wonder if there is a regular hexagon that could be placed over the shape such that an equal area of this shape is inside that regular hexagon as is outside it. So, much like underlying it all is an array of regular hexagons, so sort of like many jigsaw puzzles are effectively a pattern of squares. William
  12. The tiles do not seem to be all identical. Could you possibly consider having some smiling and some with other detail changes please? I like the way the large bubbles are produced. William
  13. poster_of_a_poem_in_French.pdfposter_of_a_poem_in_French.pdfposter_of_a_poem_in_French.pdfposter_of_a_poem_in_French.pdf This present thread will thrive only if forum members other than me post in it, otherwise it will drift away into the archive. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/187887-localizable-sentences-and-esperanto/&do=findComment&comment=1099134 William
  14. An idea that I thought of this morning. A version of the poster with a blank panel where a localization of the poem into any chosen language can be handwritten. William poster_blank.pdf
  15. I hope that you like the A3 poster. You may make a colour print if you so choose. William
  16. The first download is by me, to check it has uploaded correctly. William
  17. Here is a PDF document I have produced. It is A3 portrait format and is ready to print and it has a 3 mm bleed area on each edge. This is adapted from the original French version, of which I have five prints on 350 gsm paper, which is fairly rigid card, William poster_eo.pdf
  18. Oh, I took that about uploading to other places to refer to "top shelf stuff" in a newsagents, not the harmless stuff that I produce. Not that I look at it, but I remember the days before a well-known newsagents chain got embarrassed by complaints from women going into the shops and complaining about was on display for they and children to be subjected to viewing and the frosty wrappered magazines became the practice. William
  19. My answer was as follows. ---- A PDF document produced using Affinity Publisher. ---- That is not the same type of document. Also, I did not use the word "simple". William
  20. You are almost absolutely right, that is a good part of my reason for posting, but not the only part, it is intended as a genuine discussion, but, yes, basically you are correct. But not boredom. Nor lack of interlocutors either. But for a very good reason which I am not going to state in public. But are you agreeing that "The invitation at the beginning of the Share Your Work forum invites members to offer their designs for appraisal." because I could not find that text. I found no mention of appraisal. Maybe it needs a nice lady to post LEAVE HIM ALONE, HE's A NICE MAN AND I FANCY HIM. William
  21. So described in the wikipedia article at least. I do not have my copy of The Life of Zamenhof (in English) to hand. William
