Re: 10 Yr Environmental Impact Statement (Includes Relating to Culture)

Oh, it’s easy to pick extreme cases pretty much anywhere. Stereotyping can be misleading. We are all people at the end of the day. That’s not the point. Negotiations require a certain amount of faith that all sides have reasonable concerns that should be accommodated in some way. The path forward is...

Re: 10 Yr Environmental Impact Statement (Includes Relating to Culture)

One of the commissioners for PC even brought up the possibility of a land swap with Washoe county at their meeting not long ago. Put BM in Washoe as they have staff to handle it.

It was posted on the RGJ paywall a while back.

It ain’t no conspiracy, real problem for PC.

On all sides except the PCSO ... they simply get screwed every year. No, PCSO has screwed themselves. The sheriff and the commissioners have latched onto Burning Man as the enemy to get votes rather than focusing on their people's own needs the rest of the year. It is a common political tactic, loc...

I too was hoping for a 50k cap. It solved most of the issues. Exactly! At the end of the day, the BORG driving for constant growth instead of sustainability has exacerbated all the problems that triggered the outlandish mitigation proposals.

Re: What happens if your camp is placed but doesn't have enough tickets?

Very confusing question. 15 people in your camp. You only have 7-8 tickets. Your camp is trying to get more tickets. So are you unable to bring your interactive camp n thing if all you have is 7-8 people? Or Are you worried that the 7-8 people do bring the camp and all it’s interactive glory but som...

Re: 2019 Internet Connectivity

SSE, stingrays are prepackaged mini-cell towers for LE use. GSM/GPRS.

The lingo for a WiFi spoof is a honeypot.

BTW anyone can set up a stingray with OpenBTS. Was done a while back on Playa before cell service was available.

Re: Military tripping out on TTITD

Something odd about the articles that seem to be rehash of a rehash of an idea. It feels like the “retired major” has an idea and he wants someone else to go out and do all the work while he goes about talking about it. Rubs the do-ocracy ethos the wrong way. That said, there is merit to his observa...
