    An annoying setup, because the lighting guy is lazy

    Checked for parked channels and parked dimmers - nope none found. Unfortunately no chance to check for the other end of the dmx path as the dimmers are well secured in a steel cabinet which of course no one has the key for. I am curious if the key slot on the wall could be this mysterious take...

    An annoying setup, because the lighting guy is lazy

    SO i didn't get a chance to move the board back stage last night, or take a look at the dimmers. The dimmers themselves i traced back from the race ways, to a steel box which is secured shut with several 1/2" bolts, so i didnt have the chance or time to open it up. I did how ever take pictures...

The panel itself looks to be just a random panel that one might come across in a commercial building.The panel is located stage right wing, about 5 feet in from the proscenium, and on the the panel it self it has an on/off switch...

    College career help?

    Well here goes the dilemma, being a typical college student and a complete moron. I have wasted a few years, and not really ended up with any form of actual paperwork.

    Leather Washers

    Well i can tell you this much working in bike shops for the last five years leather isnt used on anything but saddles or grips. I would suspect that the leather is great for hanging things. Used in sails where the rigging runs through to keep the canvas from ripping

    "Basketball" truss?

    Im allowed to moderately to extremely dislike all i want. Though i do acknowledge they are in show business as well.
