  1. That version is from the Lost Christmas Eve DVD.
  2. Ok, a change of pace video. It's not WIW and you won't see lights blinking off/on 10 times a second. This video is TSO's Christmas Cannon with Linus' Christmas speech also dubbed in. I've mixed in some pictures of our display also. Video Link Happy New Year everyone!
  3. The attached picture is not great, but I have about 12 of these type penguins. I purchased most of them about 10 years ago from Menards.
  4. Hi Greg, I saw you are on tonight. I can't figure out how to get the LOR to recognize the unit 02. I keep getting the sample loop or sample chase. Can you help me out?

  5. A few new pictures can be found here. Hopefully, I'll get some video later this week. Merry Christmas everyone!
  6. Greetings from Geneva. I've been kind of AWOL from PC for awhile, but getting back into the swing of things. I'm a charter user of Animated Lighting products going back to when I started with the original Dasher product. This year about 80% of our display will be LED based and this will be our 5th year working with the Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign. Regards, Greg
  7. Daytime use of webcams -it's snowing pretty heavily right now - take a look:weather cam (also added some appropriate music for the day)

There is the occasional outburst by Santa in the middle of say Silent Night that seems a bit awkward, but mostly, it's good.
  9. On our streaming cam, it's kind of hard to see, but if you look in the first floor window, second from the right, you'll see our Virtual Santa. While I have the Virtual Santa audio going across our FM broadcast, only the music is being streamed over the web.
  10. More details are posted in this old thread: The camera is an outdoor, wired security camera. I use a server running Windows Media Encoder to stream both the audio and video. The system is sometimes running during the day (although you won't see much except maybe our snowman moving back/forth in the wind). The display is active from 5pm-10pm CST..
  11. Here's mine: http://www.twasthenightbefore.com/2007/WebCam2007-1.shtml We're streaming audio this year too. It will be active after 5pm CST.

  13. Brian - I live in the area also and have not had problems. I don't have any snowglobes or mechanical inflatables, but do have a 13 foot snowman on his third season, two large polar bears and a 6 foot wide Joy inflatable that have held up well. I use 10 inch tent stakes and use a stronger nylon rope to tie them down. On extremely windy nights (30+ mph), I will usually not fire them up and wait until the wind dies down.
  14. For a live look at the Chicago area weather, my streaming web cams are still working for now: http://ttnb.dyndns.org:8080/webcam-2006.htm
