  1. This could be interesting: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/11/04/pot-s-day-in-court.html
  2. ML was an awesome individual, he will be missed for sure. Pooch wrote an excellent piece about him: http://splnetwork.com/node/2127
  3. "SSMA" officially, if you need to look up parts.
  4. There was a modded X5 on the Trew used page a while back, so it's definitely doable. Next you should mod it to get rid of the crosstalk..
  5. I've been using GetPaid! on my phone for a few years. It tracks hours, jobs and clients and creates PDF invoices that can be emailed from the phone. The only problem I've had with it is that there's no Android version...
  6. 2x - Straight Time 2.5x - Overtime 3x - Double Time
  7. Great concept, flawed plan unfortunately. (In the current incarnation..) http://www.eevblog.com/forum/blog/eevblog-632-solar-roadways-are-bullshit!/
  8. http://www.cinela.fr/catalog.php?pid=68&language=en
  9. It's like a ballet watching those Studers handle tape.
  10. It's not the cheapest option, but I prefer to use IAS on any travel show I do. http://www.professionalwireless.com/ias I do a master coordination and then just plug in zip codes for all the dates on the itinerary. It usually puts me about 98% in the ball park. I'll over-coordinate (If I have 10 mics, I tell IAS 14) so I have some wiggle room for the occasional bad freq in any given location. I've used this method for several years now and it's made RF life on the road much simpler. I also recently picked up a spectrum analyzer, but that's another thread...
  11. IMO, spend a little extra and get a solder station. If you're sitting at a table working on several cables you'll appreciate the stand, and the adjustable temperature is good for different types of work. Weller: http://www.amazon.com/Weller-WLC100-40-Watt-Soldering-Station/dp/B000AS28UC Tenma: http://www.amazon.com/Tenma-21-7945-Adjustable-Solder-Station/dp/B00066U2T2 Here's a good intro to the craft: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-solder/ Good info here as well: http://www.eevblog.com/forum/beginners/soldering-101-questions/
  12. You could reuse your wood idea (keep the weight down) but with drawer slides in place of the tongue and groove.
  13. If I'm inside I'll swap the softie for the foam if it's available, always happy to shed any weight I can from that end. Most 'box' houses (VER, etc) seem to only send softies with the kits, probably figuring it covers 90% of the use.
  14. I can see it now, "I find that a lunch sized Fritos bag sounds good." "No, no.. picnic size Lays is the way to go for extended LFE." On the up side, crafty can branch out to some new work.
  15. "The Emperor's New Clothes" comes to mind..
  16. See if you can get a hold of Dana Mead @ MGM. He's the audio head and can give you a list of every frequency in use on the property.
  17. I've always heard those referred to as 'headworn' mics, whereas the announcer style are usually called 'headset' mics. YMMV
  18. Maybe something like the MTO Audioslicker? http://0.static.wix.com/media/5a9ee0_98ba479783bf435cb3e2a21e4449b8c1.jpg_512
  19. Especially not needed if you have a Red. It has 4K.
