Re: Foam(?) for keeping dust out through large weird shaped gaps?

If by chance it turns out that you can't find appropriate foam that meets all your needs, then I'm inclined to think that you may want to consider not worrying about airflow in those spots, and use a more rigid foam. Then for airflow, cut some rectangular window outlets in your plywood, and build so...

Re: Looking to get to BM 2018 on 08/24 from SF

I assume you have been granted a WAP. Also, it seems to me that you need to rethink your departure time to insure you'll be where you need to be at midnight. I know I wouldn't attempt to cut it that close if ESD were depending on me. Good on ya for volunteering jbyman. I don't know how many shifts y...

Re: STEP Is Moving Along!

I've never done STEP, but I'm under the impression that folks receive a confirmation email once they're in. Is that right? If that's the case and you never got one but your profile says your in, then I'm guessing you are in, but the email communication channel (email address?) is messed up somehow. ...

Re: STEP Is Moving Along!

Tatonka, have you double checked your spam and junk mail folders? Sorry if that is obvious, but I figured I'd ask anyway, seeing as I'm really hoping you find a ticket. If you're sure nothing is in there, then I would suggest contacting them to insure you will be able to receive that all-important t...

Re: The Bar 2018 Edition

Congratulations Ratty! I can understand how retirement comes with mixed emotions. That said, I'm guessing it won't be long before you find your days overflowing with fun and productive activities, and you'll wonder how you ever found time to go to work. I'm happy for you!

Urgh! indeed MotherMayhem. I have to say, I also would have thought that there would be enough VPs allotted to match the $1200 ticket sales going forward. I haven't really read much in general about this sale; does this $1200 related VP shortcoming happen every year? Anyhow, thanks for the insight M...

Re: Flat Top Shade Structure Guidance + Am I Missing Anything?

If I may follow up on Asr's great suggestions, what I think is meant is simply setting the upright canopy leg up against the rebar and duct taping them together, side by side. That's what I do with my shelter, along with rachet straps etc. to actually hold the whole thing down. I learned a nice litt...

Re: I bought tickets through a 3rd party!

Easy there puccinis, that's a lot to unpack, as they say. How exactly did you hear BM is voiding your tickets? Did you pay face value for those tickets? If they have been voided, how is it that you expect to resell them and buy new ones? etc. It sounds to me like you need to read up on how Burning M...

I think vps get void if you didn't purchase a ticket, I could be wrong... I'm pretty certain that this applies to the Presale, but not so sure about the Main Sale itself. If I recall correctly, the past couple of years the VPs sold out ahead of the tickets, so this time, with reports of VPs being t...

Re: 1 hour queue before main sale

You enter into the waiting room prior to the beginning of the sale. At 12:00:00 noon PST, those who have entered the waiting room are taken en masse (or in technical terms as Ratty put it.. as a glob) and randomly put in order to form a buying queue. Today's sale reminder email states "The wait...
