I'm going to change the sign so the pole is horizontal and the sign is mounted on the front like a plunger, so I can carry it around like a lance to gently push people back if they try to approach.

nvm, must have been a glitch.
 
how long do you spend retrieving year old messages?
 
lol
Eh, just a quick search.
Is this a problem?
 
how do you even remember posting it?
 
@Burgi He's got a photographic memory, of course!

No wonder why this thing is getting scorched. A few successive flashes at full power when the zoom head is at the widest position causes the temperature of the lens to exceed 100 °C!
(as measured on my thermal imager)
What I don't get is how the flashtube can be cracked like hell and still be working.

Beneath the scorching is the flashtube. It's hard to see but there's cracks all over the flashtube. How this can still be operational is beyond me.
Interesting...

Yeah. I'd assume this is due to repeated thermal shock. Over the service life of this flashgun, it's been fired thousands of times at full- or near-full-power when I covered events like my college athletics' Annual Awards Banquet.
