  2. Thanks for the heads up Phil. I cant say I have tried S5 since last fall so I am not able to follow the changes being made that well just skimming this.. I am thinking that miip versions will be able to keep up if we are just talking about changes to file extensions and folder locations. Miip is already LOR version aware so it should be able to create the correct show file for the version installed. When the format of the .lss changes or is replaced altogether, miip may need time to recover for people on newer versions of S5.
  3. You can get a momentary switch with NO/NC like this. So the moment of release would trigger the sequence. And it would continue until you pressed and held it. You may want a panel with multiple labeled buttons so the actor can trigger the appropriate sequence at the moment it is needed?
  4. I will be doing Laura Branigan Gloria for the St Louis Blues fans. Its from 1982 I think not a hot new hit.
  5. I think your tracks are different than you think. If the effects are correct in your master track but wrong on a track (which is a view of channels in master) than the track was built that way. When you have to delete effects from a track, you are also deleting them from master track. Your master track should have 100% of the channels and each track will be some of them arranged differently than the master.
  6. I like having "extra" ram, 64GB on this machine. If its getting used is it really too much? This snap caught 7zip using 41GB of ram ultra compressing a backup. I also find it used when I generate effects with SpEx and other programs which build large clipboards.
  7. My backup setup includes NAS which detects file changes and backs them up immediately. For offsite storage, I zip sequences using 7zip with a password and FTP the compressed file to my webhost. My offsite storage is very erratic and usually only happens when I see threads like this. This time I noticed something new to point out. The 7zip program has a new ultra compress option 7z LZMA2. Released in Feb this year I think. It took about 40 minutes to ultra compress 74 pixel sequences from 2018. The result file size was only 54 meg which is incredible from 10.1GB uncompressed. The file took about 3 minutes to upload and is smaller than one average uncompressed file.
  8. You are such a good guy to help Val out with this. PM me if you need help with the customer and order database.
  9. So I am here to suggest you put the requested song name in the title as it will give the post a longer life. But then I looked up this songs lyrics and find the opening phrase "Bruises, on both my knees for you" which kinda excludes this song for a lot of people.
  10. I just discovered that my Synology NAS has not been backing up for over two weeks! Its on a UPS so I dont think it lost power. Nothing in the software notified me. I will have to look into it to if there is an alarm for backups not running. This is the view from the patio at the family farm in rural west St Louis County MO. I dont get the connection either.. just watching the backups go through each file like bales of hay.
  11. I did some work on this a few years ago. What I did was add a CCR device to the visualiser in a circle. The position of the head was seen as a dot around the circle. To accomplish this I used an S4 track. I dont know what or if this concept can be used in S5 since .,, nevermind I wont go there. You will use the macro channels. Macro mode 1 and macro sub mode 1. Move the macro effect channel so it is right below the tilt and pan channels. Whenever you set the tilt and pan.. copy into the effects channel and that position will be lit in the visualizer. Its been a few years but I think I made a video explaining this I will look for you.
  12. This is what is known as a regional mini (gfci) convention on this forum. When 5 to 10 gather to discuss their mutual interest in extreme Christmas lighting. This is also what you get when you don't run power to the far points in your yard when you have the chance.
  13. If you are afraid you may create a document like this in the future... I highly recommend owning a few children. They will knock the urge right out of you.
  14. Is there a story about momma saying keep these kinds of thoughts to yourself? I think so, so I am.
  15. Mike I have had a lot of budget buy success with refurbished computers. Last year I had three shows running at the same time. Two were on small form factor refurbs. No problems with them. This is what I purchased only the price was $209 last summer including win10 and KB&Mouse. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAJP08V53206&Description=Lenovo Thinkcentre M83 At this low price you may be able to get both a laptop and a new show computer. My setup has a lot of monitors but I also have some PCs which share monitors and I switch the display to the one I need to work on. Maybe here for a similar model but I have not purchased from them. https://www.pcliquidations.com/p75790-lenovo-thinkcenter-m83-mini?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cse&utm_term=75790&r160164167166161&gclid=CjwKCAjwk7rmBRAaEiwAhDGhxNYW6P_ot2_JMFYWDLWQnTjWroCI6-ppkic_5w-39NaSTKB8jMDEghoC4kAQAvD_BwE
  16. I just paid a $2 surcharge for using a visa debit card today to get my glasses repaired. The customer in front of me complained I and heard the clerk say they have been charging this way for over 20 years.
