Stolen Guestbook from my Art Installation

I had an art installation out there called "Illusions of Grandeur". It was an 8 foot high by 16 foot wide interactive wall of LEDs around 10:45 and 4600' (fairly close to where Balloon Chain was being created). I had a guest book there up until at least Wednesday evening. It was in a zip-lock bag wi...

Re: Soldering Help needed in West Oakland

I bring the butane iron even when I don't have an electrical project! A generator and the 100W iron might be quicker though. Hopefully I won't need to worry about it.

Re: Soldering Help needed in West Oakland

Well, I'm hitting it every evening after work. I now have the electronics for roughly 8 feet by 8 feet completed. The individual boards are (mostly?) completed for the rest, but they need to be combined into the vertical strips. I think it's moving along fairly nicely, if not stressfully. Luckily I ...

Re: Soldering Help needed in West Oakland

Pre-populating the boards (with a bent lead on each) has brought my time down to 3 minutes from a panel of 15 boards to tested individual circuit boards. So... good advice!

Re: Soldering Help needed in West Oakland

Thanks Trilo. Hopefully you'll see it out on the playa.

Thanks BBadger. I was trying to avoid the bent leads, but you're probably right. I'll try it on the next batch of 15 and see if it drops me below the ~4 minute mark average.

Soldering Help needed in West Oakland

I have just shy of 400 circuit boards to solder parts on. It's really easy work, but it takes me on average 4 minutes to complete each board. So, I need help to finish this in time for Burning Man! This Saturday and Sunday, starting at noon, I'm hosting "solder parties". There will be music, and dri...

Re: Bitching about music on playa

On a personal note it saddens me that there aren't more musical choices overall, white dj's be running things with an occasional splash of brown skin here and there (if you are lucky lol). Would be nice if the large sound camps paid a bit more attention to that...but just an observation, no need to...

Re: Plug & Play Camping

Why are these sites allowed to use Burning Man imagery? Why are they given prime placement when most of their camp members are paying for the experience, as well as paying for the luxury of being in an RV? Why can they assume that they'll get a significant number of early entry passes? They're not....

Re: Plug & Play Camping

Yeah, I've been thinking the same thing. Reading about Playaskool, Jon is pretty much describing it as I thought most large scale theme camps already operated. Everybody pays a camp fee, everybody has a job (or jobs) to make the camp function. Some camps have build teams, while other people are clea...

How about we revoke all of the vendor passes? Why the fuck does an event that has no vending have vendor passes in the first place?

Re: Burning Man 2012 Tickets FAQ

The main sale has a limit of two tickets. The pre-sale is a program that was added a few years ago (by popular request) so that people who wanted to be able to give tickets for the holidays would be able to do so. In the past it was just at the top tier, this year they jacked it up by an extra $30 ...

Re: Burning Man 2012 Tickets FAQ

Yes, that's confirmed and correct. Sigh... Okay. That doesn't make sense to me at all then. If it's a low to high tier lottery, they really should just do a single price ticket lottery with 40,000 tickets priced at $325 each. There is no reason to do this, though I suppose it's their sandbox, and t...
