  1. Thanks, got signed up. Would LOVE to win a Christmas door cover, but the Halloween ones are pretty awesome too,.
  2. There are plenty of hotel/motels right around the convention center. A few of them are within 1-2 blocks of it, others are a few blocks away, but still within walking distance. Pleanty of restraunts, shops, entertainment as well. I wouldn't mind meeting up with a few people Saturday afternoon for lunch or a drink. I live 45-55 minutes away, and will only be coming up there to walk thru the vendor area on Saturday. Unfortunately, I've yet to start working with all of the LED's I bought on last years vendors sales and I really, really should be working hard on that. But, I've picked up another hobby that consumes my time (and money)....Homebrewing beer. And our brewing schedule has us brewing a 31 gallon batch of beer on that Sunday.
  3. I would LOVE to be there, but I'll be cooking a St. Patrick's dinner for about 15 people on Saturday, and then spending all day Sunday helping a buddy brew 40 gallons of homebrew beer.... = NOFREETIMEFORCHRISTMASLIGHTS
  4. I'm only 1.5 hrs from Chattanooga, but I do not have anywhere to store something that big.
  5. Yeah, seriously crazy winds in East Tennessee. I only had 1 twig tree fall over. Only had 2 supports on it, and they really need 3, so this just added another thing to add to my 2013 Christmas to-do list.
  6. I'd have the electric comp come and check the connections on THEIR side of the meter. If you know you've done all your connections correctly, then hopefully it's a problem on their side of things.
  7. Did they disconnect service at the road when you replaced the panel? Maybe they've got a bad connection somewhere. I'd call them to check the service up to your meter. It's their responsibility to ensure their service works, I'd just keep calling them and complaining.
  8. no lights or connections on the ground. cover the connections with something to shield them from direct rain. I had GFCI trips all the time on my static display until I got my plugs off the ground and covered. Now it has to be a torential rain for it to trip.
  9. Quality, and that the big box stores are selling half-wave LED strings, and on-line they are most likely full-wave.
  10. Just got the email from Home Depot. THey're doing the trade-in program again. The even bigger question....WIll Ge have their discount coupon again this yeat, and will Home Depot honor it with their discount?
  11. I was wondering that too BIll.... Hey Jacob.... what's the scoop on the "bad" container?
  12. Sorry, just trying to persuade a forum TROLL to leave without actually telling him to "GO THE F*** AWAY". I'm anxious to get my lights, but I know Jacob come throug in the end. He's been up front with us the entire time, and above all.... MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
  13. When a vendor ships a container FULL of the WRONG lights, and they have to be re-made and shipped is not something Jacob can control personally. If it was not for the container of incorrect lights, we would have received our lights in June right around the time we were expecting. Anyone that DID ORDER from Jacob, and had a problem with the delays were able to contact him directly, work out the problem or cancel their order. Those of us that did order, and stuck with Jacob did so FOR LOYALTY. Yes we also saved money, and YES we are receiving our lights later than expected, BUT maybe WE DON'T care about that, and are putting up lights for FUN, and ENJOYMENT, not for other reasons. Like mentioned before.... You DO NOT need to come on here and BRAG ABOUT how you got your lights months ago. Please STOP, and MOVE ALONG. There is NOTHING to see here... If you did not order from Jacob, you have nothing to talk about in here. All further responses in which anyone comes into the MITS Group buy thread and start talking about their order from another vendor will be reported as voilating the 3 rules of the forums, as they have NO productive or positive impact on the thread.
