  1. 2015 Planning - 1. Polar Plunge Tower 2. Spiral Mega Tree 3. New Mini Trees 4. More LEDs 5. More Computer Controllers

  2. Looking for some thoughts, guidance, suggestions relative to making a community brighter by engaging members of the community to put up more lights, encourage more decorating, and/or do themed "lanes/streets", etc. I live in a rural farming community about 4500 folks. In the past long before my time of putting up lights there was a city wide lighting contest and then also folks that did theme by streets/neighborhood's but that has went by the way side. Our Chamber of Commerce does a good job of promoting the holiday activities the first weekend in December. At one time there was a Wi
  3. It's all built out of 2x4's and 2x2's. The base pivots and has notches towards the top for my ridge vent. The base lays flat and the notches clear the ridge vent. I have no roof damage thus far and this is year 2 on this set up. The base is basically made up of three parts. Two base half that go on each side of the roof and then a center that rises about 8-10". The bases scissor together with the riser in the middle with like 5" bolts. You'll see the 2x4's close to the floor well those are where I put black'd out sandbags to keep it from going anywhere. 4bags 70lbs each. Then..
  4. My flag pole is not used for a mega tree but I have three sets of icicles coming down and on top I have a nativity star. What I do is get an automotive hose clamp and them make wire loops that I can bend into hooks to hook up the lights too. so if you have like 12 slices you'd space those hooks around the top of the pole and then clamp down. I then usually wrap this all up with electrical tape. May not be the best set up but it has worked for me the past few years.
  5. I have success with KWI-RS232 USB to Serial converter. http://www.amazon.com/KingWin-USB-Serial-Converter-KWI-RS232/dp/B004OZUKS4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1384444089&sr=8-1&keywords=kwi-rs232 Been using it a few years now. running on older Toshiba Satellite on Windows 7.
  6. basic icicles... white wire... ideally LEDs
  7. I need to replace some of my lights that I've had in use for 3-4 years. They were store bought and I am wondering given we are not in full blown Christmas season quite yet where folks are finding the best places to buy lights. I need to replace about 75' of icicle lights and then about 20 strands of multi color that are roughly 25' in length.
  8. Please point me to what is considered good connectors/tools in Amazon if you do not mind... I was also out side and just noticed there is a two-way splitter on the side of the house so it appears the line even come into the house has already been split.....
  9. Right now the set up is the direct line comes in to the basement into a three way splitter. Of that three way splitter, one goes to the cable modem via a wall mount connection. One feeds a six way splitter and I'm not exactly sure where the third one runs too. Although I've found the issue I think I will still have the tech come and check the line to the house and then the feed into the house. That way I'll know my feed is good and then from there I can made the modifications that have been suggested.
  10. what would you consider a good splitter? Is there any need for the amplifiers?
  11. So my internet connection has been terrible lately. Every time I call support they want to send out a tech which is fine but nothing has changed, have not messed with cable, have a new cable modem, etc. They say I have packet loss and probably due to signal issues. I have a tech coming on Friday but I pulled down my basement ceiling tiles and looked at the maze of coax. The internet began to work much better after isolating the line that runs to the cable modem and I unscrewed it and pushed the coax in a bit more. That said, it seems to me that the connection is bad and I nee
  12. Anyone have a singing version of Silent Night they'd mind sharing their LOR sequence with me?
