well, i'm new here, so take this with a grain or two of salt, but it'd be neat if there was a whole different thread section for pictures! (i.e. general theremin, theremin construction, THEREMIN PICS) It would be cool for people to have a place to post pics of their theremins, especially homemade ones!

Godspeed.
Ethan.

Sorry.

Ethan - If you look at the menus on the left, under "Learn" there is a link to the Photo Gallery.

Our generous and beloved hosts do not have the money, storage capacity, or bandwidth to allow all of us to post any or all of our own photos.

If you have something special you can submit it through normal channels, and they may be willing to add it to the website.

Another suggestion: Would someone be able to build a non-conductive ashtray which keeps in the volume loop of the Etherwave Standard?

Thierry,
Ha! I am thinking unleaded glass might do.
What is the circumference of the EtherWave volume loop circular segment?
I will look for one, here in the 'States', and then send it to you!
Good Luck!

[i]"Another suggestion: Would someone be able to build a non-conductive ashtray which keeps in the volume loop of the Etherwave Standard?"[/i]

LOL! - Thierry, presumably there is not the same degree of hostility towards smokers in France as there is in the U.K. ... There are NO indoor venues where one is allowed to smoke - and even people who live on their own have been harrassed by the authorities (local councils and health / safety bullies) for smoking in their own home.

It is getting to the point here where even smoking outside (on the pavement) is being prohibited - there are now a large number of "No Smoking" signs mounted on lamp posts in open public areas - you cannot smoke on the streets in towns, on railway platforms, pubs, or even have a 'members only' venue where people agree that smoking is allowed.

Introducing an ashtray for the EW could spark a wave of persicution against Thereminists! ;-)

[i] I must just state that I do understand the reasons for this anti-smoking reaction.. For many years people have been forced to tolerate selfish smokers who spoilt their enjoyment by stinking venues up with smoke, and have been forced to accept the damage this smoke did to their health.. An "equal but opposite reaction" often starts with an overshoot - and I believe this is what we are seeing in the U.K. [/i]

Ethan,
The easiest way is to put your photos on some hosting site, and provide a link to this site - that way someone else carries the burden of storage.. only the URL is stored on TW.
