Posted:I just had a GREAT weekend. Just went to the greatest LAN party in Holland. It was so much fun. At night I did some firebreathing and poi. There was a guy there with a really proffesional fotocamera who took some really nice shots. Hope you like them to. Untill I get my webserver running again, I put the pics up in my MSN home space. Check it out here: Foto's
Not all of them where taking by that camera. The ones behind are taking with a different one. A little preview:

Posted:Hey Poiple,

I'm afraid I can't make it this thursday, but the first Groningermeet is still on! The first few start around eleven/twelve, and a few others will join in around six o clock, so there is a whole day to amuse yourself!

Grtz,

zomercarnaval will be held then, so we can go watch the pretty ladies in bikinis and feathers while they are dancing the samba (or watch the muscular shirtless guys if you are so inclined).

I feel like I've said goodbye and that I'll never see anyone again... but nevermind me coming back to Holland, you guys should come to South Africa - you can all stay at my house smile the front yard is enormous and there's PLENTY of space to do poi.
tonight was so shweet... I'm very observant, so I learnt some new moves to try, even though I learnt "passively" (thanks tom and johnny smile)

THANK YOU DUTCH SPINNERS!! for having me. Even though I didn't meet often with you guys, this was great and I'm glad that we met.

Here is the promised blueprint (to the guy who was with poi-star).
Currently using 3x AAA batteries, 9 Superflux led light (3 red, 3 green, 3 blue) and a 16f627A PIC controller from microchip.

I've made 2 now, both in socks, and added a little fluffy side to it biggrin it's about as fluffy as my bag, but white... unfortenately my mum took the camera with her when she went on vacation, so can't post a picture frown im trying to figure out assembly atm so i can write my own 'lightshow' smile

In the future there are things to add like: accelerometers, mics, sequencers, switches linked to input etc. So you can choose a different program on the fly, sync the lights to the beat of the music or let the poi change color each time you do a wrap (yeah, that's possible ^_^ )... but that's gonna take a while!

Posted:Hello Dutchies!

I am back in cape town with many photos and memories! Just want to say thank you for being such a friendly bunch, especially Fuero, who met me in Rot. It was great spinning with you all, and I now have several new "work avoidence" activities that I can work on (ie, diablo!).

Again, many thanks for your hospitality!

PS, I'm not too sure who had the LED "snake". the ones where there where 2 tubes per poi? Please let me know where you got them, or how you make them. they were really cool!

PPS, if he is not a member of HOP, please could one of you guys find out when you next see. thanks!

Posted:That was me Johnny! ^_^ I got the 'snakes' (there are called "streetlights") from neonhusky.com... they are also available at www.flowtoys.com (I recommend flowtoys, i've had some SERIOUS issues with the neonhusky delivery 'service' several times).

They give nice trails, don't they? :-) unfortenately, not all streetlights have the strobe function... there are some with a slow strobe (which isn't as spectaculair as the high frequency one).

The rest of the dutch HoP-group are the ones with the most insane tricks, im the tech-priest with the most insane toys biggrin biggrin

Please post a pic if you have - I want to see them again with pretty tails!
