Did you know?
  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

Nutcracker: Bug, Gallery Images Gone

Recommended Posts

Well yesterday, while working to clean up disk space on nutcrackler123.com, i mistakenly deleted the 5 gigabytes of animated gifs.
 
So as of today, you will not see the animated gifs in the gallery.
 
This is the bad news
 
The good news is this will require me to finish the program that will recreate the gallery. This program will fix the missing gifs on nutcracker123.com AND it will allow all of you with a ;local install to finally get your own gallery.
 
It will probably take through this weekend to get code finished and a couple of days to recreate the images
 
sorry
sean

Nutcracker generates animations on massive rgb devices. Megatrees, matrices, eaves, arches.

 

You define your target (example a megatree). you then drop animations on it, spirals, meteors. If you like the result you export that data for your sequencer. Currently Nutcracker produces

 

LOR lms and lcb

Vixen vix and vir

HLS hlsnc

LSP UserPatterns.xml

 

 

Nutcracker should handle 10,000 pixels (30,000 channels). I currently have 12,100 channels in my show.

software is free.

Gallery is back on nutcracker123.com
 
I will release the command that created the nearly 8000 images this week. People with local installs will finally get their own gallery.
 Doing some more testing.
 
Timing was not so bad, less than 18 hours to build them.
 
thanks

For those who are having a hard time rebuilding the gallery. I have copied all the effects into a 7zip file
 
 
 
unzip them to C:\xampp\htdocs\nutcracker\effects\workspaces\ if you have xampp and to C:\wamp\www\nutcracker\effects\workspaces\ if you have wamp
 
 
be sure to run http://localhost/nutcracker/effects/create_gallery.php after you have unzipped this file. You need to generate entries in your local database for these new files.
 
thanks
sean
