Well, I'm just starting out, and I don't want to ask about the best way to make stars, how to make fountains last longer, etc. because it would look like some guy coming on here and asking about how to make a laser burn better or whether to get blu-ray or red. Old and annoying.
I'd rather talk to people who are trying out new things for themselves than a bunch of veterans who will scold me for being a n00b.
I'm also not that serious on pyrotechnics and I don't have a huge budget, plus I'm lazy. I don't want to spend a long time working on things, nor do I want to acquire a "proper" tool set. I use bamboo tubes for fountains, and I don't even have a screen set. I just like having fun.
