  1. JOKE PAGE!!!

    Stop me if you've heard this... I was happy. My girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. My parents helped us in every way. My friends encouraged me. And my girlfriend? She was a dream! There was only one thing bothering me, very much indeed. That one thing was her younger sister. My prospective sister-in-law was twenty years of age, wore tight mini skirts, and low cut blouses. She would regularly bend down when near me and I got many a pleasant view of her. It had to be deliberate. She never did it when she was near anyone else. One day little sister called and asked me to come over to check the wedding invitations. She was alone when I arrived. She whispered to me that soon I was to be married, and she had feelings and desires for me that she couldn't overcome and didn't really want to overcome. She told me that she wanted to make love to me just once before I got married and committed my life to her sister. I was in total shock and couldn't say a word. She said, "I'm going upstairs to my bedroom, and if you want to go ahead with it just come up and get me." I was stunned. I was frozen in shock as I watched her go up the stairs. When she reached the top she pulled down her panties and threw them down the stairs at me. I stood there for a moment, then turned and went straight to the front door. I opened the door and stepped out of the house and walked straight towards my car. My future father-in-law was standing outside. With tears in his eyes he hugged me and said, "We are very happy that you have passed our little test. We couldn't ask for better man for our daughter. Welcome to the family." The moral of this story is: Always keep your condoms in your car.
  2. JOKE PAGE!!!

    Had to put this one in, found it quite funny: A dinner conversation that took the wrong turn - WIFE: "What would you do if I died? Would you get married again?" HUSBAND: "Definitely not!" WIFE: "Why not - don't you like being married?" HUSBAND: "Of course I do." WIFE: "Then why wouldn't you remarry?" HUSBAND: "Okay, I'd get married again." WIFE: "You would? (with a hurtful look on her face)." HUSBAND: (makes audible groan). WIFE: "Would you sleep with her in our bed?" HUSBAND: "Where else would we sleep?" WIFE: "Would you replace my pictures with hers?" HUSBAND: "That would seem like the proper thing to do." WIFE: "Would she wear my jewellery?" HUSBAND: "Well, I suppose so." WIFE: "Would she use my golf clubs?" HUSBAND: "No, she's left-handed." WIFE: - - - silence - - - HUSBAND: "s**t..." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A young farmhand was sent out in a truck to do some repair work on a fence. It should only have taken him an hour and the farmer became concerned when, after two hours, he still hadn't returned. Just then the farmer's mobile phone rang. "I'm on the way back but I've hit a pig," said the farmhand. "Don't worry," said the farmer. "These things happen. But drag the carcass of the road so that nobody else hits it." "But he's not dead. He's kicking and squealing. I'm afraid he's gonna hurt me" said the farmhand. "Ok then," replied the farmer. "There's a shotgun in the back of the truck. Fetch that, shoot the pig and drag the carcass of the road." Half an hour later, the farmer's phone rang again. "I'm still stuck", said the farmhand. "Why?" asked the farmer. "Did the shoot the pig and drag the carcass off the road like I said?" "Yeah, I did, but his motorbike is still jammed under the truck!"
  3. Introduce Yourself

    Well, ok then. Hi, my name is Daniel Crawford. I'm a lighting tech down here in Melbourne. I finished school in 2002, and went into the railways straight away, but due to two fatalities (while driving), I decided to move into something more safe. Therefor I became a full time lighting tech. I try to imitate some of the lighting effects from Pink Floyd concerts, but so far, havn't come really that close. I always have my Bull Frog close to me at all times, and it works quite well with 10 Giotto Spot 400's and a few (6) MAC 250's, also in tow are 2 Technobeams. Here is a horrible pic of me setting up at a small school production a few months ago. (i'm on the right) http://images.fotopic.net/?id=4819467&outx=760&oq=0
  4. Fat Frog - Preset Operation etc.

    Which reminds me, the Fat Frog that I hired from Clear Light here in Melbourne, didn't have a monitor output. Needless to say, I was very dissapointed.
  5. Introduce Yourself

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH Very funny
  6. Combined Monitor Screens

    It most certainly can! It's kinda hard to fit a BullFrog onto a normal 17" screen.
  7. Name your show!

    Well, how about we all tell each other what your latest show was and a rough idea of what you used. Fame the Musical - 48 x Par 64 MFL 4 x Giotto Spot 400 8 x Profile (numerous sorts) 5 x Jands GP12 Dimmers 1 x Zero88 BullFrog This is just a rough idea, all in all, there was ALOT more! Venue size: Hall, approx 1000 pax 4 Nights, approx 4200 pax in total 48 cast, 7 crew.
  8. Funniest Venue or Event

    Well, there was the afterparty..... we just took the desk and movers to the venue (someone's house!)... Looked brill. Worst venue, well, anywhere small.
  9. Combined Monitor Screens

    Ahhh, nice idea, didnt think of that one! Can the Phantom Frog support dual monitor output! LOL
  10. close loop early command

    Using a BullFrog, I havn't had any problems or delays with Mac250's/Giotto's........
  11. Blackout??

    Same as our one!
  12. Combined Monitor Screens

    Worth investing in maybe? I constantly used both the submaster and the memories screens (on the monitor). Would it be possible to get an extra monitor output to make it a tad easier. It was a tad annoying flicking between them constantly. You would set up an effect on the submaster (e.g. a curtain warmer), go back to pragram it, and then they change their mind......... Back and forwards.....
  13. Desk Startup

    It must have been a cold morning! Works fine now. Brilliant, just that one of the Giottos has a mind of its own, but thats the light, not the desk. Apart, she works perfectly.
  14. New user (nearly), any tips.

    I dont have a problem not terminating the DMX. Though it goes Desk --> Dimmer --> Dimmer --> Dimmer --> Mover --> Mover --> Mover -->Mover.
  15. Desk Startup

    Well, after struggling to fit the BullFrog into the back of my car, I finally had a go at it. Super easy to program, just one button! One thing I found is that, when turning the desk on, it doesnt like having the Dimmers/Movers on. It just 'partially' turns on, LCD screen goes funny, then it needs to be reset, but, apart (though it isnt a problem for me). This is the best desk I have used! Well done Zero88!
