How many runs can each fiber optic engine hold?

I have about 300 in one, 150 in the second. The 300 is basically full, I'm probably gonna have to add a third engine in a trip or two.

Is that a Something Fishy chair or a regular person chair?

Considering that you see the width not the height the better question may be if it is a __________ chair.

What amazes me is that he took on a project that wasn't in his wheelhouse. Hopefully it will inspire others to do the same.

Not so helpful for scale when it's a @Something Fishy chair

Nothing, because this is actually a Miller projection lol.

I like it mainly for keeping the polar areas not-unpleasantly distorted and a good balance with equatorial areas. And crucially, it doesn't cut off any land masses at the north pole.

It also fits very nicely into an overall 2:3 ratio so I can get the 6x4' size I wanted.

;D

that would explain why the meridians are straight and evenly spaced while the parallels are straight but spaced closer together as they move away from the equator. I should have noticed that the meridians aren't curved
