Re: Golden Guy Alley interactive art gallery

Now that's interesting. The playa needs a place for small art. Something the broke but talented individual can invest time and effort in without a lot of money. I predict you will be flooded with art. Could you stop over at Greeters and tell us a little about yourself, what you have done, what you d...

Re: Burner Dykes

I would also say take a look at the Burning Man Census. The LGBT population from surveys is small. But the reset in everyday life, inspiration and the encouragement/support culture of the event is valuable for anyone. SSE your posts are usually spot on but this time you are wrong. The 2017 survey s...

Re: 3D printed parts for swampie

The 3D printing looks good but I wonder about the current draw by that blower. Specs for that 4" Blower are 12V @ 3.5A. Figjams specs are less than 2A for pump and blower. 3.5A plus pump current will limit the number of hours you can use the evap. cooler.

I don't want to be the asshole that tells you "this won't work" BUT I don't see much chance of you succeeding. You are looking at up to 2 months transit time by sea from India to San Fran.

Re: Water Storage/ Shower Situation

Hello, this year will officially be my first burn! So excited to finally make it to the playa! Since I've never done this before I was wondering what is found to be the best way to store water (we will be using a yurt, no camp trailer). We will have a flatbed trailer to bring supplies etc. Also, wh...

Regardin the trash problem on Nevadas roads. There is already an unused tool to prevent/punish those who lose trash along Nevada's roads.

In the open forums I moderate, I have had one spam post in the last ten years. There are over 5 million posts in those forums.

It can be done.
I'd worry that, at that level of filtering, a large percentage of good posts would be excluded. AI isn't that accurate.

Well, if it doesn't have to be square you could check out a place that makes custom exhausts. Who knows, they might be able to do square as well. A pipefitter (not a plumber) could do this for you. Most largeish electrical contractors have the hydraulic power tools to do this, you might need to look...
