  1. Wish I could make it this year, but with looking for a new job and getting my 2 son started back to College in Aug. my plate is full. Maybe I can make a plan and make it next year. Hope everyone has a great time.
  2. Yes, I have seen the Indestructible plans, there is also a college that did one in Mobile Al with all LEDs pixels. But, as mine will be outside I think using the C9s that are made for outside is a better Idea than the fluorescents tubes. They really don’t get that warm and the venting should be enough. Thanks for the comments.
  3. Ok so I am thinking of building this for the display. Thinking I would change the picture about 4 times during the Season to mix things up. It could also be used for other things during the year. If you have any Ideas please feel free to post. Here is the basics of what I am thinking. Giant Lite-Bright Idea Light box built out of 2X4s measuring 4ft by 8ft 4x8 sheet of plywood $25.00 for the back of the box. Paint outside black and line the inside with tin-foil for reflectivity. 5 cans of cheap black spray paint. Large Box of heavy duty Tin-foil. $10 for paint and a
  4. Yes I used it on Icicles, but it is a bit more work.
  5. Here is a post I made a few days ago. Used the LED keeper last night to fix about 12 strings of LEDs saving me about $250. I did pick about 3 strings to use as replacements for the others and I did throw about 3 away as just not fixable (cleaning up some storage space). I have ... about the same amount still to go over so this $30 item might end up saving me $500 just this year. I know I am not an average user but this is certainly a good product and it is cool that I kind of know the inventor through my contacts. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007H4I8HY/ref=ox_ya_os_product

  7. Working on it, maybe 12 or 13,000 up lots to go. But it was great weather in Alabama this weekend to work on it in and I hope it is again this weekend.
  8. My signs seem to do the trick they simply say "Smile our cameras feed directly to the North Pole." Then I have some camers that are visable and some that are not.
  9. http://store.3glightingcreations.com/ They are great to work with, I have bought severl items from them.
  10. Shake up Christmas is by the Band Train. Look on youtube -
  11. It's quite in here. Hope everyone is working hard to make 2012 a great Christmas Lighting season. I am building a few new things this year with more lights and wire frames. I have high hope for a great Show this year and I also hope to get around to see severl others Displays. Please post your Basic location and details and when you light up. I am in harvest Al. and this year we will have over 100,000 lights mostly LEDs on over 200 LOR channels. My show should be about 40 minutes long I think and we have voice overs this year by the Demented Elf. Happy Lighting.
  12. Yes I think I am going to leave it the same this year. The contrast was the main idea of going with black (shadow look). But it looks very cool just by it's self when light for a few sec. of a few songs.
  13. Actually I lit it from the front last year with 2 floods. I wanted to use 2 Cosmic Color Floods but they were not ready at the time.
  14. Relatively easy to make and I think it turned out nice.
  15. I am in Harvest over 100,000 lights on over 200 channels. Been doing animated for a long time.
