Marc, Thank you. Those are beautiful shots. I hope you don't mind I took the liberty of posting one on FB. With your name as photo credit of course.
Not at all, these were meant to share, but thanks for checking :)

Another big BM report with 2000+ pictures sorted and categorized

I'm not as late as last year, but still late, sorry :) Lots of work over weeks, to sort/categorize all the pictures, and write my 11th big report: Like last year, trips right after burning man made sure that I didn't get the report done timely, but better late than never. Hopefully the end result is...

Thanks trilobyte, I'll admit that I wasn't quite sure which board to pick for this post.
Your help is appreciated.

@burner van braun:
cool that we had a quick chat, or even cooler that you somehow remembered me from previous reports I've done. It's a big playa :)
Glad you liked the shirt and the display.
Cheers, Marc

You're welcome. Destiny Lounge 3D was awesome. I have a few more pictures in the "Camps" folder if you'd like.

For solar, you are comparing the wrong numbers :)
581Wh produced vs 1184Wh used.
You were looking at instant use vs instant production.

Very late, but big photo report of BM 2018

I won't give you excuses why I'm so late this year. It still took close to a week of work, and just wasn't able to get it all done until a couple of weeks ago. 4000+ pictures to fix/sort/categorize just takes forever... Anyway, here is the end result: http://marc.merlins.org/perso/bm/2018/ Feel free...

COOL - I'm glad it worked. I did make the animated gif myself, from the original 'official' static svg on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burning_Man#/media/File:Burning-Man.svg If I find time today, I'll see about a version of the 'arms down', rising/green, and up/on fire version from you...

Tell him to come see it, it will be set in place and won't be moving.
It'll be by dustfish , 9:30 and esplanade if it arrives there in one piece :)

Re: Do you have or can you contribute 32x32 or 64x64 burning man logos (animated is better)?

I spent all of yesterday and today on my animated gifs matrix and IR
code, and found a nice set of 27 gifs:


If you happen to have your own you'd like to share and for me to
display, send them over.
They must be 64x64 pixels and ideally below 100KB.

Thanks, Marc

Luap, thanks a lot for this one. May I ask, did you make it yourself, or you found it somewhere? I'll definitely make use of this one. To answer your question, my panel is 24bit color, so colors are not a problem, but I can also use B&W. I'm also trying to find one that has the arms go down, then mi...

I'll have a couple of display panels (one on my shirt and a bigger one: 1m x 1m). The smaller one can display 24x32 pixels while the bigger one can display 64x64 pixels.
