    Everything you ever wanted to know about
  2. Can't hurt to give the guy a call. Find out what they are looking to do and what they are willing to do. If it is going to work out, leave the display up for one more weekend. It might get you a few more donations. Also ask if they would be willing to come back early next year. Just remember, everything is negotiable.
  3. It looks like that inspired someone else down here. http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/story/24277715/villa-christmas-display-inspires-hatefilled-letter#axzz2o9I5GZK8
  4. My google-fu has failed me. I have a Big Frog near me. If you don't want the shirt in black, they can help you design one.
  5. Just like gawegiel, I run another show. I do mine as an animation loop. I have the Mega Tree fade from Red to Green to White to Red and repeat that. I march my mini trees through a similar color cycle.
  6. You have a HolidayCoro ActiDongle. What are you attaching to it?
  7. The first question is what is the voltage and amperage requirements? That will determine how many & what size batteries wired in parallel and series. Once you have that figured out, then you can look at battery holder. Base on the battery holder you choose, you can decide to attach it to the belt. You could look at using a fastener/rivet, Velco straps, elastic to create a bandoleer or pouches. You may want to consider a fanny pack. Attaching them to the stilts has merit too.
  8. Twist the "b" lines together and twist on an electric wire cap. Drop it into a plastic wall box and put a cover plate on it. Don't need to tape or solder (although some electricians will wrap the sides of the switch in electric tape.
  9. I strongly recommend getting an account with a photo sharing site like Photobucket or Picasa, then link to the photos with the "image" button.

    You can always use the J-Channel trick. Keeps them straight & even and makes them easier to put up.
  11. This sounds like one of those internet pranks like recharging your cell phone by placing the battery in the microwave. All it does is destroy your battery and the microwave. There are plenty of videos of people burning up Christmas lights by placing them in the microwave. I would say skip the idea and invest in a real light tester.
  12. I happened across this video. Climbing a tower with proper safety gear. Something we should think about while hanging those lights from the roof.
