Not a problem. I will just continue sipping on my bottle of Crown Royal as I prefer it anyway. If you are thirsty, you might enjoy a swig.

OK. I might open the bottle and give somebody a swig if you can tell me how to resize a photo.

This is an interesting question, and I would be curious what the plan would be. Relocating such a large crowd could be rather challenging. I have also wondered what would happen if a rather large sudden downpour happened during the event. With the climate changes we have experienced so far, I would ...

YO TITWI and Pinemom It has been a while since I have been on the boards, but something keeps pulling me back. How has you winter been down there? From what I have heard, you have probably been cold and dry for the most part. I still use a photo of the small domes as my computer wallpaper. I have be...

The rafters can be pretty cold this time of year. How bout I throw NEB up to help hold off the chill.

I am guessing that the reason you were not hit hard is that you are prepared to deal with it. With all the gear you have for the playa, there would be no challenge for you. The ugly stuff mainly happens to those who are not prepared!! We are probably two months away from flowers here. The river is s...

I am happy to hear that your area was not hit too hard. I heard that some areas were without power for weeks, and this is not a good time of year to be pwereless. For me, this winter has just been long. Normally we have a lot of snow to play in, this year the area turned white, and then just got col...

I am doing OK. While winter is my favorite season, this has been a long one that I will be glad to forget.

Watching the news, it sounded like your area got hit with some pretty bad ice storms and power was scarce. How bad did it hit you, and how are you and Karine doing?

I just ran some numbers and it looks like the most efficient dome in the 30' range would be a 4V slightly less than 31.5' and would require 170 10' sticks of EMT. If you want more details, let me know.

There are two major problems with lights that I see. First, during a dust storm when visibility is limited anyway, how far away are you going to see the light. Next, if it is clear and you can see the light from a great distance, what happens if it is somebody else's light that had the same idea. If...

With the observatory centered above the stripper pole, if I reinforce it a bit, that could be a nice mount for the the telescope pedestal. I may be nice to have an elevator over here on the side, it is too difficult to carry drinks up the stairs in the dark. Now let's work on the drink list a little...

While it is so quiet here, maybe we should add an observatory to the roof. It is fairly dark out here tonight, the stars would be great viewing. To get in the right frame of mind, we could have special drinks depending on what we see in the Telescope. Let's see: Pluto - PBR Venus - Vodka Mars - Marg...

One last thought before I return to my normal lurking mode!!! Early on you were debating between using all four cylinders, or just two, and as I remember, you went with four.
