What's wrong with my rackmount effect box?

My Digitech Studio Quad 1u rackmount box gets unhappy over time (hours). As it warms up, the input levels drop and it becomes unusable. Turned off for a few hours, it comes back to life. Is this terminal or repairable? Should I get something new? Is there a comparable product (multiple ins/outs, flexible routing)? [more inside]

Video of workshop/studio rules

I’m trying to remember/find this great video made that summarizes the rules of a New York artist’s workshop. The rules that I can remember are a couple shots where the narrator says “The correct response when someone asks you to perform a task is ‘I understand’. If there are parts to the task that are unclear to you, the correct response is ‘I do not understand’.” [more inside]

Non-photographer has to learn to use a studio light kit ASAP

Because I've taken photos that people like, my boss has given me the task of shooting a few corporate studio portraits using the company's equipment (studio light kit and light meter). The problem is that I've never used any of this stuff and have no idea where to begin. I've watched a few YouTube videos but they seem to assume some familiarity with the topic. I have none! While I understand things like f-stop and shutter speed, I've always used the auto settings on my camera. I have any eye for composition but no practical photo equipment skills. Can anyone offer a quick tutorial on how I use this stuff? [more inside]
