We have a contact on the inside who informs us that there is (supposedly) going to be a huge release for Enlighters – this fall! Details are still sparse, and no official date has been mentioned, other than hints at a fall of 2012 release. This release will allow fountain administrative control on the fly – from turning on the jets, to maintenance logs. Our contact managed to sneak out a few photos without the “big wigs” finding out, along with the official release name:
More details will hopefully be forthcoming.
Feeling left out of Enlight? Thinking that the summer is just too long to go without your fellow Enlighters around? Want to know what’s going on down below while you’re gone? Well, we finally have our network camera up and running!

For your viewing convenience, we have set up a public guest account, of which you will have received login information if you are a member or Alumnus of the Enlight Fountain Control Group.
***Please Note*** Multiple people can log in at the same time – and since the camera is interactive, please don’t be alarmed if the camera’s view “jumps” while you’re logged in.
Have fun, but don’t all log in at once!
In other news, we had an attempted visit by one of our past Presidents, Mr. Jason Malinowski. Unfortunately, we were experiencing some down time, so he didn’t get to see the fountain at our best – but hopefully he will come back sometime soon to visit.
We have noticed multiple air lines have begun to pop/crack, one of our trusty (but rusty) grate hooks cracked in half, and some screws in the North end have literally disintergrated. …Basically, work is never done for Enlight!
Til next time!
