  • About my display
    I will probably put up lights but I doubt that I will have an animated display due to spending too much time at work and the destructive kids that live in my neighborhood all of a sudden.
  1. I made the mistake one year to go to Bronners the day after Thanksgiving. That was a huge mistake cause it took me almost a half hour to even find a parking spot.
  2. My favorite song to animate to lights is The Night Santa Went Crazy by Weird Al. At least most of the older kids seemed to love it. Just kidding. I would have to say my favorite of all the songs I have sequenced is either Christmas Cannon Rock or Christmas Eve Sarajevo by TSO.
  3. I might be able to make it out there. Its only a 3 hour drive from my house.
  4. I used to use AVG but got tired of all the issues that I always seemed to have with it. I switched to the free version of Avast Antivirus and all those problems went away. www.avast.com
  5. But I don't think Itunes will convert a protected song over to an MP3. Tunebite works great but unfortunately it isn't free.
  6. I know a few people that moved out of Michigan due to the economic situation here but I know more people that moved out of this state to get away from the cold weather. I would be one of them if I could afford it.
  7. The answer to number 2 is easy. Its Woodward Avenue, home of the Woodward Dream Cruise. I worked in Novi for several years but have no idea on question 1. I would guess Oldsmobile for question 3. I didn't even know Michigan had a state stone. I would like to say Faygo for number 5 but that probably isn't the right answer. I guess I should go look up the answers now.
  8. I am not 100% sure but I doubt it because the xenon bulbs don't get hot enough or stay on long enough for the oils to create a problem.
  9. One tool I use when I deal with websites that require an email address is an add on for the firefox browser and its called Temporary Inbox. I don't know if there is an Internet Explorer add on like that. Here is a link to it https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2650
  10. Also depending on the type of pigment used it generally will not take a lot to start altering the the color of the base paint. Mixing custom paint colors was something I used to do on a daily basis when I worked for Ace Hardware. Except all dispensing was done by a manual dispenser since the store manager was too cheap to invest in an automatic dispenser. I think there were 10 different colors of pigments used. Black, White, Brown, 2 shades of yellow, 2 shades of red, Blue, green, and I think the 10th was magenta.
  11. I can't say that I have ever had a problem like that with the sequence editor. I would try reinstalling the LOR software because maybe you ended up with some corrupt files that the sequence editor needs. What version of Windows and what version of the LOR software are you running on the PC?
  12. Max, I would agree that the silicone and RTV sealants are virtually the same for most applications but I would never use regular silicone on an engine, only a good high temperature RTV sealant
  13. RTV sealants can usually be found at auto parts stores because they are usually used around engine components where gaskets can be hard to use or when a gasket isn't enough to seal an area. Permatex is probably the brand that you will find in most auto parts stores
  14. Is Frankenmuth too far north? It is only about 2 hours away from Toledo and is basically a straight shot North on I-75 Besides that is the home of Bronner's Christmas Wonderland which is probably the biggest Christmas store in the country
  15. CARS8, I guess I should have mentioned the fact that most vision systems are far more sensitive to light than human eyes could ever be and many equipment brands can usually detect a change in intensity of only 2 or 3 percent and sometimes less.
