  1. Crossing my fingers it gets better as Christmas Day gets closer .
  2. We started taking Donations this year for the Miller Children's Hospital out in Long Beach, CA. I built a Collection Box very similar to the one Jeff from LauderdaleChristmas built (thanks for the great idea!!!). Here is my problem and hoping for some advice. We have been running nightly since Dec 1st. We get plenty of vehicle and pedestrian traffic which lead to line dancing in the street one night (Who Knew!!!). Voice over by Demented Elf plays about every 10 minutes or 3 songs telling everyone about Miller Children's Hospital. Here is the rub. Only $137.50 so far. Seems pitiful. And 2 ni
  3. I saw that video and totally forgot all about it. Made me laugh the first time I saw it. Thank you!!
  4. Does anyone have a humorous sequence for a simulated power shortage/outage other than THX Tex??? I have Tex but was wanting to add something a little different. Was thinking of adding some red and yellow rotating beacons to the display that would go off to add to the effect. Any ideas??
  5. I had a similar problem but not for 3-5 seconds. Mine were maybe 1-2 seconds. All I did was adjust my programming to stop a second sooner than what was needed. Seemed to solve my problem. I agree with Mark's answer. The strobes still have some stored energy and will flash what is left in the electronics after the main source of power is eliminated. I still get an occassional renegade flash now and then, but I don't think anyone really notices but me. (and my biggest critic, my wife!!!! :-) ).
  6. Christmas with a Capital C by The Go Fish Guys, on their "Snow" album.
  7. Here is the shortcut to the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXFC574qQzk
  8. By now most of us have seen the "Shadrack" videos. So I decided to add a few vertical light poles this year. Started to over think how to make them and came up with a couple questions. 1. Using ABS (10 footer) instead of PVC (too flexible) pipe, since I do not need the pipe to bend as you would for leaping arches. 2. No guys wires. Maybe just slipping the pole over a smaller diameter section of whatever pipe that extends 18" from the ground. We live in SoCal, hardly ever get any wind or weather that would lift the pole off the ground. The poles seemed pretty basic to me but I think w
  9. When wrapping your arches, do you "overlap" the strings from channel to channel to get the nice flowing effect or is that just in the programming? My guess is it just in the programming. Am I right? Wrong? Close? BTW, Thank you Jeff from Lauderdale Christmas for the excellent Powerpoint instructions on arches. :waycool::waycool::waycool:

  11. Perfect!!!! I was hoping it was going to be something very low like that. Circuits are getting mighty full this year :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:
  12. Awesome!! Thanks :waycool::waycool::waycool::waycool:
  13. Anyone know the current draw on Darryl's strobes???
  14. I am looking for a "stuff-able" type Santa Claus approximately 6 foot tall. Possibly made out ofnylon or similar that could be stuffed and placed inside a sleigh. Anyone ever seen or heard of such a thing. If so, would appreciate some direction.
