No offense lady, but all the 'work' you've put in isn't all that much. All that money you've invested is like $20 tops, unless you paid someone more than average for hosting and domain regisration, and you still don't have a simple way to download or listen to your music. And I'm pretty sure you don...

From all the posts that I've read so far about this happening (or where it was mentioned, anyway) people seem to be pretty negative about it. I would think that even in the red light district it wouldn't be kosher. That's like saying in the black light district it would be cool to eat a pill out in...

Public Masturbation

Just curious what people think, since Burning Man is such a open-minded community and BRC now has a red light district.

I'm just stirred up because you seem to be bitching about not being granted diplomatic immunity while at Burning Man. That's not realistic. I'd be happy just to have freedom of speech. Is that realistic? Burning Man should be a mecca of anti-censorship. The JL incident was a clear case of LE abusin...

I don't think I'll ever see enough bare breasts. Maybe if we saw them more often, nudity wouldn't be so taboo.

Overly detailed spatial references are a little irrelevent, IMO, when your experience encompasses the whole BRC area and not just your own campsite. AFAIK, there's already at least one mapping ap out there that was customized for the event, but the editing front end involved something like batch pr...

Roam-net is not mac based, but when I originally created that page, we had mostly macs due to the donations we were recieving. Now we're more PC based, running windows and Red Hat Linux (now called Fedora).

Any and all donations are appreciated, as long as they're not commodor 64's.
