Re: Paintings Art Gallery Design Help.

Awesome. I had considered it early on....then moved on to something else. Eventually making it way harder and more complicated than it probably needs to be. AntiM's design should be great. Does the chicken wire ever sag? I have a lot of paintings to go on each 'panel'...and I am gonna have to test i...

Re: Safe Gifting

TOTALLY! Gifting is about the experience shared between 2 (or more) parties. Not just gimme gimme gimme. But sometimes you cant control that....and offer your gift anyway. The best gifts though, I agree, come from meeting people and sharing time. Great point man!

I am extremely curious to know how many people registered for the 'Open Registration Main Sale' lottery. If there were 40,000 tickets did more than 20,000 people sign up? I think that Burning Man could release that number without creating any sort of scalper problem. So let us know...haw many people...
