  • About my display
    My pride and joy is my coroplast Marching Band. 45 Channels, and about 10,000 lights. It's also the bane of my existence. Who knew it'd be so much work to change all those bulbs...

    I added Red, Green, Blue, and White LED arches this year. I think they look pretty neat, but they sure do weigh a ton!

    I use LOR, and I'm slowly switching to LEDs.

    Currently working on a Mega Tree. Will it be 40 feet? Will it be 12 feet? We'll finally find out whether it's my wife or I who call the shots.

  1. Tory, let me get this straight. You think if I come shake it at his display, it'll finish off those lovers prematurely?
  2. Yeah, they're not really bothering anyone, are they? So they found a way to get away from their parents and have some alone time. Weren't you ever young and in love?
  3. Won't be too big a deal as long as they have a rear windshield wiper.
  4. Decorate the room with Orange and Blue only. When people comment on your odd Christmas decor, tell them you're color blind and start crying.
  5. Orange you glad you didn't paint them Black?
  6. I had a similar problem during setup this year. There was a point in the daisy chain after which all channels on all controllers would shimmer. I tracked it down to the cat5 connector on the LOR board. When I disconnected the cable last year, it had stuck and pulled up the connector. I had simply pushed it back in to place, and thought all was well. As it turns out, the connectors must have bent, and I could only get a good, clean comm signal when the jack was bent out. I solved the problem by pulling the jack forward and using hot glue to make sure it stayed that way.
  7. Sounds like if I swing by your curb on the right evening, they'll be free.
  8. I'll take the non-expectation meeting lights off your hands.
  9. It's not officially supported, but it will work. You need to mount it in a metal housing though. Running at 40 Amp generates too much heat for the plastic cases.
  10. If you wait on Travis for a refund, you'll be waiting a while. If I can give you some advice, give him a deadline. Tell him if you don't have your lights or a refund by XX date, you'll persue a refund through a dispute with your credit card. Give him a reasonable time frame, and don't take any excuses (he'll have plenty).
  11. Tis true. Paul at CDI sells plugs molded in this manner. If you can plan ahead it's a real timesaver.
  12. Depends on what you're ultimately plugging in to it. If you're going to plug in a string of lights, they don't have a ground, so there's no need. If you're plugging in a controller or anything with a three prong plug, you'd need the ground.
  13. I'd tell you, but I don't want Dano to show up and abscond with it... I keep mine in the basement. I put an empty outlet box with a waterproof cover where they (cat5 and audio) come out.
  14. Do you do an animated show? You could put switches in the bottom so that a different show is triggered depending on where the puck lands.
  15. Louie, I don't think Max is talking to you either. I think he's talking to the people who come in here and post, "I've never had any trouble, I'll be ordering from him next year." They seem to have an attitude like we're either making all these problems up, or it's somehow our fault that our orders weren't as perfect as theirs.
