  1. By paying for the music you use you're making a POSITIVE impact on musicians so they can create even more.
  2. Seems there were some java issues in the PlanetChristmas forums with early installers of Microsoft's Internet Explorer 9 browser. Fixed. I don't typically trumpet Microsoft products... but I've been using IE9 the last few days and have been most impressed. MUCH faster than previous versions and appears rock solid. Find out more at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home
  3. Christmas Expo update as of March 1, 2011 What's up with Christmas Expo? Formerly known as PlanetChristmas Lights Up Symposium (most caled it it PLUS) is alive and well. A very small group of volunteers has been working hard to keep the event fresh and useful for newbies as well as the old-timers. We're talking mega-sessions, super-targeted classes and once-in-a-lifetime product deals. Mega-sessions are where we bring in over-the-top speakers and have demonstrations of next generation ideas and products. These are the thought provoking sessions that get you to thinking about grand
  4. There was almost an entire day when the Signature Generator was off-line as the main PlanetChristmas website was being refreshed. Sorry about that.
  5. Think Seaworld in Orlando Florida 2010. It's their Sea of Trees. You can read details about it in the December issue of PlanetChristmas magazine at http://www.planetchristmas.com/magazine/December2010/index.html#/14/ This video isn't the best. Jump a few inutes into it to see the trees work their magic. >125K LEDs... each is individually programmable and can be any color of the rainbow. Impressive.
  6. A tip jar... hmmmmmm. Kinda like at Starbucks? I always wonder if that $5 bill you can usually see through the side is from a happy customer or planted by an employee Years ago I came up with the PlanetChristmas penthouse mainly to handle the ones that wanted to donate a little money to help defray expenses. The penthouse wasn't advertised and you had to dig pretty deep to figure out how to enroll. There were exclusive forums but not a whole lot of activity... must have been that rarefied air since the penthouse was located above the forums. The penthouse still exists in our new f
  7. I've been watching this thread hoping it would get back on track without any help from a moderator... and it did. Thank you. Please remember our three rules: we're positive, family friendly and Christmas centric.
  8. A great mix of Christmas, Elvis and technology. The 2009 Mark Dillon's Deck the Lawn Christmas Light Display located in Round Rock TX, features 80 channels of Light-O-Rama animation, over 22,000 LED lights and "ELFVIS", a singing and dancing animatronic. Jump to 1:30 in the four minute video to see Elfvis really swinging those hips! Now this is a creative Christmas display!
  9. During Judy Pancoast's 2010 Christmas tour she stopped by Richard Holdman's house and they created a music video of her House on Christmas Street song. How can this not put anyone in the Christmas spirit... especially if they're big into decorating? Not only is the tune fun to listen to but Richard's house in the background looks sooooooo impressive!
  10. This is the video that EVERYONE was talking about in 2005. The back story is Carson Williams posted a video on PlanetChristmas in January of 2005.of his Christmas display flashing to the music of Wizards in Winter by the Trans Siberian Orchestra. Soon we forgot about it. In November the PlanetChristmas server became overloaded and I couldn't figure out why. Seems CNN had found the video and did a little story about it on the news... and everyone in the world was trying to see that video. Later in the day the video started cloning itself across the Internet and ended up on YouTube. The Pl
  11. Look under the "Goodies" tab in the top navigation bar of this page. This secret passage will only be open for a few days.
  12. My fault. I had installed the snow add-on strictly as an experiment. It didn't work and the person that wrote the code asked to investigate, which apparently he did... and fixed the problem... about 7:30 last night after I had turned in for the evening. The snow has been "tweaked" and now only visible to guests. Just another reason to sign in when you're reading the forums. Now the question is... should there be any yellow snow
  13. Tapatalk is back! At least I think it is. Please let me know if you're having trouble. Install Tapatalk on your smartphone. Search for "PlanetChristmas" and have PlanetChristmas with you no matter where you are!
  14. You can scroll to the bottom of the home page and on the menu bar are several links. Click "Today's active content" or go to http://forums.planetchristmas.com/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=active I'm sure there's a way to make this easier to find... just haven't had time to figure it out yet.
  15. No need to worry. Enabling TapaTalk on the new forums infrastructure is on the list to do... but it's still a few days away (the list is quite long.)
