    Hey Derek, is this book among the titles of your library?

    The Followspot Guide

    I'd be interested to hear if that's any good.

    In all seriousness, Derek you should take a crack on such a subject. A 20-40 page PDF, call it the "CB Expert Series" of common-rights publishing.

    No, but it's on my wish list, though not high (and my birthday just passed). Too expensive, and the author is British. No offense intended, just that I bought his PracticalDMX and regret it. Discussed too much English practice, and every other page says "Use CAT5 as DMX cable so you'll be future proof." Fine sentiment, but I didn't need $50 to learn that. And something off about a Brit writing a book about something that happened due to USITT, and STEVETERRY, et al.

    Also I read somewhere that the book is not comprehensive, I believe doesn't include manufacturer Strong (the ETC of followspotery) or Lycian (the Strand,) can't remember which. But I'm sure the book loves Robert-Juliat, I'm the only one who doesn't. Hmm, an R/J spot with chocolate in every colorframe AND taped to the front--my personal vision of H E you-know-where.;)

    I'm still formulating a plan to raise money for CB based on our collective knowledge...will advise when it becomes public.

    No Strong or Lycian? Yea, that might be a pass. Oh and one of those color frames must have some R3206.
