Add underline style to in-post links?

The current style used for links (e.g. this is a link ) residing inside post bodies and signatures can make hyperlinks difficult to identify, even though they're a shade of blue. Could they be styled with an underline like standard links? The color used for the links also has poor contrast when on t...

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

No, the Superstore is the same store as the one on Amazon, and only sells 50pc cartons. I think the one you're looking for is the Fastener Stop . Note that I don't know whether these guys actually deliver on their lag screws (I would assume they do). Please report back if you use them. The 50pc cart...

You probably don't need the 1/2" lag screws, but any normal impact driver/wrench should be able to drive those in.

Other than having a weakpoint at the joint, how are you going to drill that into the playa with a piece of rebar sticking out the top? Being able to impact driver those into the playa is one of the biggest benefits of using lag bolts vs pounding rebar. If it requires a pipe wrench or something I mig...

Re: Tower for mounting LED art up high?

We had one of those 30ft Rohn towers that was held in place in the middle with deep stakes and then had guylines around it. They're not that hard to transport or set up, and not too expensive. Tall, but not super tall.

Re: How to do bright hair color for the Playa!

Well according to this site on preventing hair color from fading, normally hair is slightly acidic, which keeps the cuticle structure compact and resisting dyes or other chemicals. It also keeps the hair healthy. When dyeing the hair, the hair is purposely made alkaline (pH raised above neutral) to ...

It may be counter-intuitive, but flashes are best used for fill light during daytime photos, and left off during the night.

They're not a common size to find at a brick and mortar hardware store. You might have more luck asking around in your local burner community to see if anyone has spares you could buy.
