YAY MISS BROWN! Thanks for inventing the coolest looking thing on the playa (OK that's a bold statement, but I DID say something like that the first time I saw them dancing across the playa in 2006.I hope we can elicit the same response from someone who sees them for the first time this year). And thanks for the detailed and easy to follow instructions on the Playaflies website. They are quite a bit of work, but now I am a master solderer!
One more question: the bit about mounting to the bike calls for 3 feet of rebar in the supplies section, but rebar is not mentioned again. I guess it sticks out of the conduit, inside the PVC pipe? For extra stiffness? (insert penis joke here) (ooh I said 'insert penis") Is the rebar really necessary and worth the extra weight?
Oh, and there was some mention of Playaflies 2.0 with synchronization? Whats up with that?
Oh,and how sturdy do they end up being in real-playa conditions? I figure if 66 LED's on 3 sets of playaflies function for one whole night, I'll be happy. I'll bring stuff for repair, but can't realistically envision me troubleshooting and squinting and soldering instead of saying, "Screw it, turn it off, lets go play", you know?
Any battlefield issues you have had? How have they held up?
Oh, and How many playaflies do you think exist in total?
Meet-up swarm sounds great.
If I can just figure out when midnight is...
Or for that matter when Wednesday is...
