  1. You are a victim of your own success. To be fair, taking you out of the running may encourage others to go bigger. Becides, now they all know you're out of their league.
  2. I'm curious if it would work for a virtual Santa, I really want one next year, but I want it cheaper than they sell the package for.
  3. I have half-wave LEDs from Walmart and they work fine for me. If I have too many on one channel they do need a snubber of some kind but it's not that bad.
  4. That's kinda scary. That seems like the kind of justification people would use to shut you down. I hope everything is ok.
  5. SPT wire is often used for lamps. Silver and gold are common colors for that reason.
  6. I used a Gemmy controller for a few years the upside is; it's cheap and easy, the downside is; it has no individual control, and can handle a limited number of lights. Fair warning, after using the gemmy you will immediately want a computerized controller.
  7. Are you sure about the item #? It doesn't seem work on their web sight, at that price I'd clear out a few stores myself.
  8. I use a 36" t-post, you can get them at any hardware store for under $4. It's steel, reasonable heavy duty, kinda (U) shaped to hold the cane in place and can be used for years.
  9. I'm on year two with the Wal-Mart LEDs (5mm and minis), I've only had one light lose conncetion and I believe it was stress related (hung vertically). I have been shocking happy with them.
  10. Those particular lights sold out in my area within two weeks of going on sale, and I drove to four Lowes today looking for the 40% off all holiday items deal. Not a single box of lights left. All I ended up with is some flood light holders. Very disappointing. I believe the coupon is valid through the 24th, if you can find something go for it.
  11. Ok... (breath)... I tried purging the shows in the scheduler, saving the sequences in the sequence editor, and resetting the shows in the scheduler. No dice. However I tried it again except this time I exported the sequence optimized from the sequencer rather than having the scheduler do it, and it seems to have worked. This was the most traffic I've gotten all year and the show wasn't working correctly. I can't thank you enough for your help. I was freaking out... (exhale)
  12. I just got around to installing the new LSP update for their scheduler and it ruined my programs. All the fades are gone and during strobe like sections the lights just stay on the whole time. I have no idea how to correct it. Can the update be uninstalled? Can I tell it not to optimize my sequence? I have the old sequences on a back-up but it just changes them and then saves. Any help would be great, I wasn't expecting to deal with this so late in the season. P.S. The LSP site seems to be down right now so no help there.
  13. Projecting a laser at a megatree? How does that work? It doesn't seem like you'd be able to see it very well.
  14. You're one of the lucky ones. All the big box stores out here are just about empty and virtually no clearance items at all. I don't know what I'm going to do in the off season; I'm not going to have many new lights to do my projects.
  15. Unless you have a full size back tattoo of a bald eagle, holding the constitution, and the American flag, with Mt. Rushmore in the background there is nothing more patriotic than Christmas lights. I voted
  16. I'll check my Local lowes tomorrow thanks for the announcement.
  17. I use different color paint pens that match the controller color and are numbered according to the element.
  18. http://www.galaxialighting.com/ I think.
  19. That's terribly nice of them, and speaks directly to the generosity of people. Plus, it shows just how much people appreciate your display. I have to say though, I'm not sure I could keep the money if I were you I would donate the entire amount. I wouldn't judge you badly either way though.
  20. "Do the lights just hear the music and flash like that?" That's to funny. Christmas spirt or not I would't have been able to quit laughing.
  21. I didn't realize you were collecting for the 100 club, that's great. Is that new this year or have you done that in the past?
  22. I like LED's but that's up to you. I've heard to use C6 or M5 lights or you'll regret it, but I don't know why. In my house multi is a four letter word, but that's just a personal opinion, I'd go white.
