About my display
Tho they all be incandescent minis, 2006/2007 was my first try at animating my lights, powered by a Lights & Sounds Of Christmas controller. Was nice, but I wanted more control over both the lights & sounds. 2008 I got two of RJ's Lynx controllers. Only got one to work properly :( Mid-November 2009, I decided to try my first LOR controller, obtaining a second one a week later. Now, with a third LOR 16PC kit, and just over 10,000 lights.., my first try at Mega and Mini trees, it's a whole new world opening. Already started on sequencing to be able to give back to those coming after me.
