    Geometry: Ramp both "long" and "steep"?

    I've not seen much rught wing at CB. Constant left wing spew from you, Van, and Hebbard for sure.

    Geometry: Ramp both "long" and "steep"?

    Of course the far left wingers couldn't help but interject politics into this.

    Geometry: Ramp both "long" and "steep"?

    Just for fun, I did a screen capture and measured it in AutoCAD. Around 1:5.2 with no handrail, very far from ADA, and what aisles could be in US up to 50 or so years ago, when it went to 1:8. Did Fox pick up on it? Not surprised CNN didn't. I basically don't watch news beyond space shots...

    Foot Lights

    I've wondered if just tape light behind or touted into a 1x2 on edge wouldn't be quite effective. Maybe not only light unless performer is addressing audience directly but as a key.

    Interesting stair

    Also interesting, even if easy to bang head and not to US codes. https://pin.it/55mX4BI

    If you're a teacher.......

    NY seems well managed but people are still not careful. Indoor dining started in my area yesterday, saw a line of people at a bar and grill all without masks.

    In agreement with Tim. People and government will continue to reopen till the hospitals and morgues are overflowing.

    Rigging inspection needed?

    I recommend Ethan. I hired him for a second set of eyes on a new project. Good guy. PS: and no warehouse full of products to sell

    White walls I presume. I made the pitch for saturated hues and lost."Balcony rail" lighting position. Tom Skelton: "Rail is best."

    Rigging inspection needed?

    I don't have personal knowledge of local companies. Both Atlanta Rigging (maybe just production, not install, but in these times?) and Georgia Stage have ETCP certified riggers, a good sign.The trick is to find someone who just wants to solve the problems and not primarily sell products.

    Sandusky State Theater Heavily Damaged in 6/10 Storms

    Kind of looks like aluminum guide system, not steel. Except the lattice track for probably the fire curtain - standing taller than almost everything. Kind of liked real steel T bar systems - and now another reason.

    Sandusky State Theater Heavily Damaged in 6/10 Storms

    A big building is falling down and the guy with the cell phone is walking towards it? Darwin strikes again.

    I have an over 100 year old curtain track. WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH IT???

    Its probably a clear and very fine grained southern yellow pine which is almost as dense as hardwood. No doubt good stuff.
