    Default Anybody in the south florida area

    Just wondering. Seems pretty lonely down here with all the LOR users around me. Well, the two I know of.
    Why can't you put a square peg in a round hole? Most committees do it constantly!

    I have started sequencing and it isn't that bad ... alot of replication for arches and trees. Sequencing for 18 arches, 8 sections and 4 colors - 576 channels. Mega trees: 5 trees, 16 sections and 4 colors - 320 channels. 876 channels that go really quick. I am doing the sequencing for about 1600 channels right now with arches, mega trees, mighty minis, super strips, strobes, rope snow flakes, candy canes, posts, about 60 misc trees (2 foot and 6 foot) around the yard and some things that are a bit unusual that I am going to try.

    Gonna do alot of the standard songs, but also doing some that not everyone has. I have about 100 future channels and then 100 channels on the bottom that break down the beat, drum tracks, other percussion, voice tracks, guitar tracks, keyboard tracks, etc. in groups of 8. I am finding that breaking the songs completely apart first makes it go much quicker in the long run. I have about 5 songs in the works so far.

    The thing that took a long time was making the adjustable preview. I have tried to do it to appear realistic which involved alot of "zooming in" to 10 pixel size to build things and then back to 1 pixel to see how it fits the photo.

    I have been given the go ahead from my wife, but she has no interest in anything at this point. We have done alot of inside Christmas decorating over the years (8 fully decorated trees last year), and she is a bit burned out to be starting something new this year outside. Plus I am going a bit to the extreme compaired to most in the first year.

    Anyway ... back to this thread ... I am in Tampa, but would love to get involved in a Florida get together. I am within 15 minutes of oldcqr (Mike) which is what got me started by going to see his display.

    I will keep in touch with this thread, so if anything develops you will be hearing from me.

    Me Mike?

    FYI: I love meeting people and will take the time to show you around and invite you in, but please let me know in advance. There were a couple of times I was outside this past year and people came up to me and said 'I'm so-in-so' and either I didn't realize who they were, or I didn't have time to properly talk with them.

    I'm just a lonely old bachelor, and I need the human interaction! :p
