Maybe we should assign the body / head / hand / torch pixels to people that have committed to large chunks, or that we know to be very committed to the project. Basically, participants that we can hopefully assume will be more 'reliable' and show up with the pixels. Then a lot of the random we'll br...

If you don't feel like buying a ticket then don't. Chances are at some point the playa will call to you. Then you won't wonder if you should or shouldn't. You'll know. Personally, my first year(2004) was so so. I had an amazing experience, but also saw some relatively disturbing things. I didn't kno...

Re: hey

Any thoughts on cheap efficient covers and perhaps good glues? My current plan is used billboard vinyl. LyinBare, some kind soul I found on tribe, sent me a few page word doc that goes over heat sealing billboard vinyl with a standard clothing iron. I'm starting to get curious about tyvek however. ...

The online communities are a great place for people to connect when they might not have otherwise. As Zulegoona pointed out, Apokoliptika is a good example of this. I would also point at projects like Megapixels as other examples.

The barrel makes sense. I had heard that building from the top down lends itself to bending struts. Something about the weight of the whole dome coming down on one or two struts. Using the barrel might relieve that however. Only having one tall ladder definitely was a disadvantage. We plan on having...

Re: Looking for pool

Would LOVE to camp next to a pool this year. Who has plans to bring one? I can give you all the hot water you want. Water would be used to cool laser setup. Last year I took 200gals and could run for 30on 30off looking to dump about 30kw of heat. I can bring a pool table... I brought a pool table l...

I'm just using a dremel tool with a metal grinder attachment. Seems to work well for me. Just a little time consuming, seeing as how I have 175~ struts with two holes each to deburr.

I think that every pixel should be grommeted in the corners, if possible, so that they can be linked together AND staked more easily. Or at least have cord tied/knotted into the corners, or zipstrips. And that large patches of pixels be sewn together, again where possible, to reduce on-playa assemb...

The website looks nice. I'm curious about what you are using to cover your dome. I'll have to do some research on it!
