Re: House music on the playa...

Don’t listen to the naysayers. They know NOTHING!

Bring all your stacks, gear, generators and a canopy, set up by any of the many Porto-potty rows, and groove a morning set for all the masses turtling their morning glory as they treck from their camps.

You will be legendary!

Re: Virgin Burner Couple Looking for an RV to share

If I felt comfortable pulling a trailer behind my truck, I'd go that route in a heartbeat. Huh? Any there I was all these decades believing TTITD gets us to push our comfort level ;) Cmmon, you know you can do it! It’s real nice with a small travel trailer in tow. Setup and strike are trivial.

All the comms you want to snoop into are done on commercial, licensed, private channels.

The BORG rents this licensed service.

Re: What was wrong with the lottery?

2009/2010 - you could buy tickets at the gate. 2011 The first year of a sell-out, tickets were available through July when the final ticket was sold. The “lower tier” 27K tickets sold out within 24 hours but the higher tiers were available through summer. In 2012 they implemented a lottery. 40K tick...

Re: Want a ticket? Love a Geek!

Satirical, yes.

But it is not a joke.

There has been a path each year to slide behind the spaghetti and get tickets during the meltdown.

All them web apps do client-side processing, so all the magic is there in the local machine.

Relatively easy for the geeks to figure out.

When the BLM issues a permit for only 50K, the whole ticket sales process will be irrelevant as it will be all DGS.
