I do a lot of photography for local theater groups, and they know I'm a techie twiddler. What is easy to forget is that to most people, taking the "plug in" wiring out of a crystal ball base and tossing in a cell phone battery and high powered LED, so their onstage Crystal Ball would work without needing wiring... That is simply beyond what they are comfortable doing.
If you are here, you are a tinkerer. That being the case, don't forget to help out local theater folks, they have really interesting needs sometimes and are always fun folks. Quite often what is for us a minor project they consider nearly impossible.. And they appreciate it.
