Wouldn’t it be cool… if

Posted on Posted in Musings about Light

I’ve been using the new lighting console like crazy since I bought it, and this past week/weekend, it ran Miss Saigon at Riverside’s Fox Theatre.  For the first time, I tried setting up a specific wireless network just for lighting (named MoonBaseAlpha) that would connect only to the lighting console and should have allowed me to run the ETC iRFR mobile application.

It sorta did.

And it sorta didn’t.

I could connect, and begin to use the application, but it would freeze or crash every minute or so.  I asked a few of my fellow twitter LD buddies, and they didn’t have my same experience, and couldn’t help me troubleshoot it.

I may have to break down and…


ask for help.


The horror of it all.
