  1. I dont know where else to place this post, so please feel free to move it as you see fit. For years now, every time we throw out an old appliance or electronic device, I snip the electrical cord and save it. They are handy to have around to replace cords that have gone bad on good equipment. Over the years, I have built up a good sized ball of wire. This past fall I was at a flea market and found several vendors selling replacement extention cord ends 2 for $1. Well, the rest you can probably figure out from here.. 50 cents a cord is a good deal. And while you end up with a variety of

  7. Hi, I'm Gary and I am new around here. I hope I have found the right place to post this. First, I found this forum after seeing a video floating around the net of an LOR display. I went out 2 weeks ago and bought a 16 channel controller, programmed 2 song animations and was thrilled. I then came back to the forum and took alittle time to read and see whats here. Wow, an LED section. Now there is something I can relate too. I have built a custom fixture that consists of a 7" wide platter populated with 250 or so LEDs. They are grouped into groups of the 3 primary colors. By changing
