He is the moderator. May be he banned himself.
Why do you think he is banned?

Those unit costs for those lighting instruments are through the roof. Just Nutzo. $5500 for ONE of those strobe fixtures?...almost a million bucks for the DMX control system?! Somebody is getting a new paint job for the Ferrari with this whole deal. But maybe there is a lot more to those contract line items than just the 'stuff' It still seems outrageous.

Forget it guys, it's a unfortunate long story and not comfortable to have experienced for everyone in the know ...


On topic: Since last Friday the external lightings on the tower were off and yesterday was a very dense sand storm so you can imagine my surprise late last night to see the dust pretty much settled and the lights on the tower back on.

Very nice indeed.

Incidentally, for those who haven't had a look at this monster yet -

(it's well worth downloading the plug-in. Once you have, click the full screen icon in the top right hand corner)

- an idea as to the scale/level of detail:



and at the end of that arrow...

About 2.3 gigapixels. I interpolated it to 9.1 gigapixels as well, but I think that's going a bit too far.
