  1. Hey Dustin! Glad to see another decorator in Tallahassee! I would be happy to meet with you sometime to talk about what is involved, go over some of my pictures and show you a LOR controller or two. Since the move to Tallahassee about 2 years ago, I have not done a full-fledged show; only some really minor static displays and such. My last fully animated show was sadly all the way back in 2006 with 40 computerized Light-O-Rama channels, 2 computers to run the show, and a outside audio system. You can go to my website, http://christmasadventure.net, on there you can find some pictures on the '06 display, a few videos and a couple snapshots of the control room. Also on that website there is a LOR help guide that is kinda a crash-course for the systems. I think I wrote or last updated it in '08 or early '09. What part of town do you live in? I am near the Killearn area. (Off Thomasville) Welcome to PC! I am not entirely active here as much as I used to, email at [email protected] if you want to setup a time to meet. --Daniel L
  2. I agree. PC is not what it used to be, and frankly, I think we should bring back the Wiki site just for this very purpose. Have a history on how the forums and the PlanetChristmas site has morphed over the past few years. Along with a bio of EVERY person that was banned at one time (and let back in), and bad selling practices like this story. --Daniel L
  3. I am trying something completely unique this year in time allows. Basically it is going to be a show, and not just a series of songs one after the other. A big opening number to show off the lights, and a nice upbeat track to leave the visitors happy. --Daniel L
  4. Hmm, only 2.5 hours away from me. This is good. I can't plan a date now, due to work and such, but I will be watching this thread. --Daniel L
  5. GASP! That is an awesome tip! I have never thought to mark bad sockets! I am going to go buy me a silver sharpie.... --Daniel L
  6. Nice reminder Chuck, and Welcome to PlanetChristmas! :giggle: --Daniel L
  7. It does reflect, but think about a pool light. The light is always brighter at the end with the light, and faint at the other end. Same effect with the tube. If you shine the lights in at the side, not only will it be hard for it to position so people don't see the lights, but it will be much brighter where the lights are, then at the top if they are pointed sideways then up. --Daniel L
  8. If the bottom hole is 6in in diameter, then the plexie circle for the bottom should be 8in(or so) in diameter, leading to a over-hang do it can't fall though. That was all the water pressure "should" still be on the original bottom that I am guessing you already made strong enough to hold it all in. --Daniel L
  9. Wouldn't a hole in the side/back have less pressure on it then if it was on the bottom? I know how hard it is to move a 1/2in hole, so this may not be ideal now, but just thinking... What about a plexi bottom? Shine all the light you want from the safety of non wetness. Make a false bottom/shelf in the base, and you would be all set. --Daniel L
  10. I can't bid (student). But its good to see a posting member from Tallahassee! --Daniel L
  11. Bob, I REALLY hope you get better REALLY SOON! --Daniel L

    Port forwarding

    Yup, Tim pretty much gave you the answer. LOR DOES NOT use the Tcp/IP or any other protocol a home networking device is capable of handling. If you do use your LOR equipment with your networking devices, SOMETHING WILL BREAK! It is not even a risk, it is a guaranteed equipment failure. Don't do it! Time said the three ways to accomplish what you want. I have not used ELLs, but I have heard nothing but positives on their performance. With all that said. I am not too sure about the protocol LOR uses, but it is a standard that has its own kind of router/splitter if needed. There was a thread a while back discussing using some kind of splitter so you don't have to run daisy-chains. So manipulation is possible, if you really want to ook into this possibility, search around for the protocol LOR uses, then do Google searches for something like "x wireless repeater". I'm sure you will find something, but chances are it would cost a heck of alot more than the ELLs at Light-O-Rama. But it is an option... --Daniel L
