  1. I have a large supply of hot glue sticks at all times. I use it mainly, as you did, to attach my lights to the house (brick). I used Hot Glue and Twist Ties (they're free in the produce section). I put a glob on the wall, center the twist tie in the glob, 5 mins later, lights secured. My twist ties are brown, so they blend in with the house and I don't have to rip them off at the end of the show. HOWEVER, I was very disappointed with hot glue last season. I purchased several Holiday Coro Elements and assembled them according to David's instruction videos. Everything is secured with hot glue. After about 3 weeks, the hot glue began to let go of the coro and disaster.... I ended up removing ALL the hot glue from all the elements (with rubbing alcohol) and going with clear gorilla glue and zip ties. It actually works better, if I need to get into one of the elements, cut a zip tie or two and viola, versus 1/2 the day removing hot glue. Still, I use hot glue on a LOT of projects.
  2. My display is pretty spread out over the yard. I try to keep the Controllers as close as I can or at least centered, so cord lengths do not get out of hand. My Mega-Tree controller is the only exception, it is inside the mega-tree. The way I mount them is like so. Controllers are mounted to a 3 foot piece of 2x4. I have 3/4" rebar that I drive into the ground at the controller location. The 2x4 is attached to the rebar using pipe clamps. Simple and effective for my needs.
  3. I had a tube of Red Gasket Maker still new in the package. I used the "Nozzle" from it and screwed it on the Di-Electric Grease Tube. Worked break, the small pointy tip fit right into every socket and worked PERFECT for my extension cords. Not a single water failure last year. Little late, but I hope this helps you out....
  4. They are cool and were a lot of fun to put together.
  5. Here is a pic of my 8 Holiday Coro RGB Mini Trees. Also have a link to my vids to see them in action. Used the standard Holiday Coro setup using Holiday Coro Power Supplies and power injected through Cat-5. https://vimeo.com/54788088

  13. Agreed, contact every news station and ask them to run a story with the video about the incident. Chances are, he'll brag about it to his "Friends" and they'll give him up.
  14. The Drum Family Celebration of Christmas features over 55,000 Lights spread across 2 houses synchronized to the sounds of Christmas! We are collecting Non-Perishable Food and Monetary Donations for the Kingman Area Food Bank. Come out and celebrate with us and help a Great Cause. Merry Christmas! Watch in 1080p for best quality!
  15. There has been a lot of discussion about this. DSLR is the best of the best of the best. BUT not everyone has $10,000 to dump into a camera. Here are a couple that seem to get the most looks for Good HD at a Good Price. http://store.kodak.com/store/ekconsus/en_US/pd/Zi8_Pocket_Video_Camera/productID.156585800 http://www.theflip.com/en-us/Products/ultra.aspx Hope this helps!
