  1. Hello all, it has been sometime seance my last post or evening logging into site. Years pass fast but we are back active and was wondering if Kevin the dementedlf is still around for voice overs. We would like some new ones done as we have donated our display to a charity or if anyone might know someone doing voice overs for displays. Please email me or answer here. [email protected] Thanks All
  2. Want to set up ribbon tree to run sequences to say Thank You to all those working. Does anyone have Alabama's song "40 Hour Work Week" or if someone can help do one please email me at [email protected] Lets all do it!!

  4. I can understand how you feel about all the trouble, this year my wife and I took the year off and I accepted a job helping a friend in his business. Let me tell you that will never happen again. WE HAVE MISSED IT, with all the problems it still is a great joy just to see one night that goes good. Rest a few months without thinking about Christmas lights and then renew your effort. I will never take a year off again as long as my health lets keep going.

    Lighted Wire?

    I would like to find some that can be put on cloths with wireless control that could be tied into the LOR control software.
  6. Ray Wa has these on his site that are DMX
  7. Check your internet options to insure the "clear internet" is not checked. If it is then it will clear all passwords and sites ever time you close explorer.
  8. Bill V is right on with being called late at night in the cold and rain and snow, when I work for a business on call or on site for there repairs and etc. the rate is $45.00 per hour with 3 hours min for call outs. I would never even think about taking over and insuring a show that has had problems before for less. You are opening a pandor's box and if you do you can forget doing anything on your own because you will not have the time. Get paid will for taking over there trouble's.
  9. Use different colored spots up in the tree, I placed 12 spots in a very large tree and it gives a very nice color to the tree and great shadows thru out the yard.
  10. As stated they are wired in a series and cutting them will make them burn out ASAP. If you can find a set of 50 that is split at the 25 count point you could use just half a set, most of these are 3.5 volt. I would look at rewiring the unit to use up the extra lights. Of course if you understand how they work you could place a resister in series with the lights but you will need to know how many lights you are cutting off and then find a resister equal to them. Main thing is you have to use up the voltage to keep the others from burning out.
  11. Looking forward to it, leaving Elizabethton (Northeast TN) around noon.
  12. We set up a tent area in the driveway to the double car doors and start bring things out to work on them, will get the tent up this week and the man who helps me will start bring things up, polls, arches, big things. We also get the strange looks from people driving by most of the neighbors know and even will come over and have coffee in the afternoons and sometimes even help. Good way to get them into it also. This year we are going to do all nine house on the street using one LOR unit per house, just the main windows and eves will get LOR'ed.
  13. Some time back I posted about using computer power supplies for RGB and LED's but can not find it. You can Google "hot to convert PC power supply" and it will give you several links and information. I converted several for RGB and they work fine, found them in junked computers.
  14. Problem found with help form Bob at Light 0 Rama, thanks Bob.
  15. I use a J pole and attach it to the top of my mega tree above the star on a 10 section of light conduct, here is a link to show you how to build and cut. http://www.hamuniverse.com/jpole.html
