    Default 4th of 2008 setup pics

    Well this was my first e-fired show...worked pretty good for a first timer. I used an oda 10 cue with an ABC switchbox and a 12 cue wireless system I made. One of my main boards didn't go off and that really pissed me off, but overall I would say the show murdered every neighbor up and down my street...I even had the party down the road cheering at the end of the finale!!

    It lasted 12 mins but from 3 mins to 4 mins it was pretty dead b/c something went wrong with my system and I couldn't figure it out (I put it into test w/out thinking ) and then from 8 to 9 I had dead air again except for one 500g going...don't even know what happend there...oh well. Anyways here are some pics of the setup.

    thanks...I'm working on the video as we speak. Actually I'm just getting pissed b/c I can't convert it to a wmp...It was taken on a shitty digital camera so its not that great of a video...Also I would like to edit it b/c there are some spots where I was having trouble w/ my firing system and on like 3 different occassions there was only one 500g going off for a minute....but I'm working on it.

    Not a bad pic at all, looks like a great place to shoot! Yeah, Windows Movie Maker in Programs, Accessories, Entertainment (assuming you have XP) will read an AVI and write a WMV file, compress it by a bunch, too.

    Hahaha I love it. A month later and still cussing out your boards!

    Been there and done that.

    Ok so here is the video...its terrible quality. I think I compressed it to much...it was ok at first before I compressed, but now I think its a lot worse than before. oh well....

    Just a Question? When things go wrong with one of your shows how long does it bug you? I know I relive the issue for months... don't want to hijack the thread but it seems relevant.

    Good to see the 3-angle cake boards have become a standard item. When I first built a prototype back in 2005, everybody was like, "What?"
