  1. alright, my email is [email protected] feel free to email me your setup (on lor) and what songs you wish to use. and i will see what i can do. im on deployment on and off this season so didnt have time to setup a display back home. but sequencing is something i can always help with
  2. if you are using LOR email me your setup with some mp3 songs you want for next year. and ill help you out a bit or atleast get you to a good start.
  3. ive used my buddy down the street's (ka3tno) all last year. i think i used it more then him! it works great especialy on a snow covered roof in the dark night!
  4. ran my lights til jan 2nd. (tonight) then tomorrow i begin teardown.
  5. i work at walmart, we did not send anything back for next year. we just had the lights out so early, that they were sold out well in time.
  6. you can always try sending your local newspaper an email. i did that this year and landed a full page article. along with 2 pictures on the front of the sunday paper. that along with a showing on NBC10 News helped keep 8-15 cars outfront during most times of the night. btw do you still have that linus and lucy snoopy theme song? i cant seem to be able to get the timings down as well as you did. any chance i could ****** up a copy of it so i can use your timings for my show?
  7. it was only about 1 minute of coverage. and i woulda rather had the display being showed off then some ____ kid who thinks hese funny.
  8. and now theres a big group of kids with there grandparents out front all watching the display. fiorst they videotaped the display. now the little kids are all right at the edge of the display pointing at all kindsa stuff! wow this kinda stuff puts a huge smile on my face.
  9. Ever since nov 28th. (the day i turned everything on) there have been ups and downs for the xmas display. 2 days BEFORE opening night. (mind you i hold a party with 100+ ppl on average who showup) i had 3 kids run up into my display and brake a few candycanes. (Nothing i couldnt fix just irritating) The Light up show was great success! We had the local paper there to take photos and write an article that appeared on the FRONT PAGE of the sunday paper. woohoo! The next night we had crazy traffic and about 40$ in donations for that night alone (so far thats the highest amount in a night) since then the traffic was light on 2 days that rained and heavy on another 2. Lastnight i checked the donation box. found 6$ for the night (it was pouring rain all night) I also found 2 hand written notes on mcdonalds napkins. one asking me to marry them and how amazing the light show is! (I Love you to whoever that was!) Then later that night (1 am) some kid calmly walked up into the front yard and pulled out one of my white wire trees (They were staked in with 3 foot re-bar) so he tried hard to get it and eventualy succeeded. then he calmly walked around the display looking directly into my surveilance cameras with the tree over his shoulder (Ima catch you you little ______) well i realised this today about an hour before NBC10 local news station was set to showup for an interview. So i rushed around to find out that no1 in my area sells white wire trees anymore??? so i had to comprimise with a spiral tree temporarily. oh well. anyway the interview came along and towards the end the reported pulled out a Flip HD Video Camera, and a 100$ Gift card.so not only am i going to be on the news but traffic is good tonight and i now have a HD video camera to record the show! YAY!!!! hopefuly nomore vandals this year. ima bit sick of watching them steal and break my stuff.. lastyear when i had NO security i was fine. ughhh
  10. this isnt legal in some states, (especialy mine) but i put out about 2 boxes of mothballs. spread out in the yard. you cant really tell they are there. and they keep every kind of small critter out. plus if it rains they dont disapear, and after season u can leave them out there as they will desinigrate in time. (did i spell that right?)
  11. lol. check your local craigslist. or ebay. just buy someones old inflateable that has a larger fan. or go to HD or something and install a booster fan that ppl use in central air systems
  12. Just thought the old thread was a bit outdated and unorganized. so i was wondering if there was anyone nearby to go check out there show this year. so tell me wear in PA do you have your light show! Mine is on. 16 gun road levittown pa this is about 30 minutes away from center city philly.
  13. did you have it looked at by a second computer shop? i know some people dont know what they are talking about. even when they run a business. always backup your files
  14. my display is about 50-60% LED. so i pull a mear 50-60 amps with all at 100%
  15. thankyou ben! off to work on the roof. cutting and re-wiring these c-9's.
  16. welcome to the light community john! a few questions. is it light o ramma that you purchased or some other brand? also there are many people who would be willing to help you out with a song or sequence! whatever you choose limmitations are endless! you better start now drawing up a sketch of what each channel is going to be. and what your setup will look like. this will make the sequencing alot easier for us! also im not sure if phillip has the time but i have seen his sequences he makes for people and they are truly a work of art! WELCOME TO PC!
  17. i have c-9's along my roof. and about 30 extra sockets on each string (2 strings) that i dont use. am i able to simply cut them off and re-add the plug to the end to make them cut to length? what do i need to do to do this
  18. my grandfather lives alone across the street we send them there (is that bad? lol)
  19. why not sequence it yourself? its not hard and you can add your own personel touch to it then! but there is somebody on here that sells an awesome arch/megatree sequence. Edit: i searched for the post with no luck maybe someone else can chime in?
  20. just wondering. what do you guys send in your christmas cards? a picture of the display? a family photo? or just a card.
  21. my flood sensor is very sensitive. but i have it just positioned right to where if you walk down the sidewalk it goes on. but if you drive a car down the road. it doesnt. also we have a big field behind the house. all kinds of stray cats and deer go back there all the time. so far ive seen cas walk through the display with no motion detected.
  22. well i have a 500w flood light up on the roof. i mounted it kinda like rich H mounted his star on his roof. works great. and bright as ****!
  23. you get a better effect if you have them jump across.
  24. it wasnt serious enough for me to send it to the tv. but if it continues. i will do so. today after work i am installing a 500 watt flood light on the peak of the house. if u walk anywear near my yard. BOOM the yard will be lit up brighter then day
  25. About two hours ago 3 kids ran up ripped out three sets of candycanes and smashed them on the ground. I have them on four different cameras but can't get a face shot at all.. yippee this is gunna be a great year...
