  1. I'm working on my first coro project today to... a Tune-To sign. It actually wasn't that bad on my fingers.
  2. I doubt it does a real good job with your mp3-player music. Probably acts like a light organ. But, of course, if it does magically sync to your custom songs, that's really cool!
  3. http://planetchristmas.com/FigurePower.htm It's all there.
  4. You must have at least three channels in order to do a chase effect. Maybe add green? I've seen Halloween lights in green, orange, and purple.
  5. This reminds me... I've got an old one I'd like to sell.
  6. Pretty much the same thing as sparkleballs. www.sparkleball.com Still, neat idea. I'm considering some for 2009, if I can come up with a place to put them.
  7. That screenshot looks GREAT!!!
  8. If you use a metal pole, it will be stuck in the ground. I'm rather sure the path of least resistance would be for the lightning to strike the topper, go down the pole, and reach earth ground. I doubt much damage to your lights would occur.

    Cool! Another Weebly User! It took me awhile to find the Photo Album Widget, I don't know why. It's under "Multimedia" on the side.
  10. Once the gray-on-white problem was fixed, the last forum template was okay...
  11. I did too! I wondered if that was on purpose, or something wasn't working right.
  12. You pretty much can't buy lights online for the prices that Big Box stores have. You probably won't find them much cheaper on the net than what you've found.
  13. Here's a webpage with more information on what the eye can see than you want to know! http://www.100fps.com/how_many_frames_can_humans_see.htm
  14. Joe's right... if you're talking about driveway arches. (Though, I'm using PVC for mine) If you're talking about leaping arches, go with PVC. It's easier to bend PVC into an arch by hand then to get out a pipe bender for rigid conduit. In my experience, metal conduit is NOT just as expensive as PVC. It's at least ten times the price! 1/2" metal conduit- $19.80 3/4" PVC conduit- $1.40
  15. Last year, I just hung my lights over screws at the top of my pole. Worked just fine. I don't think you need to worry about it.
  16. Technically, you need two 15 amp feeds for one LOR box- unless you have the pro boxes, then you need two 20 amp. If the load is low enough, you could plug both sides of the controller into one circuit.
  17. I looked at the thread, and I cannot figure out why it's closed. I can't un-close it, which I usually can (since I'm a Mod). I think that means Chuck did it? PS- You don't need to show off your awesome computer skills by directly embedding the photos. Attachments are better for huge pics like those... PPS- I went ahead and uploaded those photos as thumbnails.
  18. I'm one of the few that liked it the old way. Blue just doesn't seem much more Christmasy than black and white.
  19. I set the whole sequence to 0.05 marks, and sync by wave form. I like having the timings evenly-placed. This way, I never have to insert events, there's always one where I need it.
