Re: ~ El Wire vs. Side Glow Fiber Optics ~ ...Ready Go!

If this idea is still alive, here is a project I remember from eplaya: sideglow fiber project

I want to play with this idea, but sideglow fiber was a bit expensive last time I looked.

Re: How long is the rebar?

When I made mine, I cut them with a portable band saw, like butter. I second figjam on the angled cut. I wanted 6 stakes, and cut a 10' rebar into 20" pieces. With the candy caned top, I think they ended up a bit short. Of course, I did not have the opportunity to test them, as I forgot to take them...

The camera is a Gateway DC-T50, It is an old 5mp camera, which I have been mostly happy with, but it uses an odd ball battery which is expensive to replace, also I think it only supports up to 512mb sd cards which are now actually more expensive than a 2gb.

Re: Goggles and Dust Mask

I decided to tough it out this year (my first). I think that was a mistake, as I came home with a sore throat/cough, that lasted for about a week. There was no fever, so I assume it was mostly the dust, though it could have been from smoking too much, and sharing drinks, and cigarettes. Nothing like...

What a great response to a harmless addition to your art.

The tables were littered with beer cans, decorations, and plates with half eaten food on them. Was this someones art project or a big pile of moop...

Re: Post Burn Treats - Better landing in the Default World.

I think I did it right this year: I was expecting a bit of a wait for exodus. I made it to the l lines of cars, and BMIR was still saying "5 hour wait." 7+hours later, I was turning onto the blacktop. Before heading to BRC, I had planned to book two nights in a Vegas hotel on the way home just to av...

Re: Here's a tip: don't get scammed by a fake BRC Ranger

One day, late in the week, there was a German guy hanging out with my neighbors in a ranger shirt, and hat.
He would heckle passersby: Bike riding by nice and slow... "Slow down!" Hot young girl walking by: "Are you carrying any weapons?"
etc, it was hilarious.

The use of grey water in evaporative coolers has come up several times. I do not have any plans to try this but I did find a useful link.
I think this cooler was used in 2006:http://ae-zone.org/2009/09/the-trashcan ... mp-cooler/
