    Default Bill's Journey

    It has only been just a few short days since I was sent a link to a lighting display that lead me here to this site. I already have plans in the mix for 2008 and have some PCB's on the way. If the mod gods permit I would like to keep a running journal or log of my activities for 2008 showing the steps into setting up my first display.

    P.S. I would like to thank all for yet another addiction. :D

    Thanks

    Bill

    Addictive is the word. In the last 2 weeks since I found this forum I have signed up for 128 channels of lynx, started my first sequence in vixen, of course i had to first take a picture of the front yard to use in the preview. I then thought that it would be a shame to waste some dimming channels on my wireframes and blowmolds so I just ordered a grinch and 4 ssr's to run those. Now I am working on my shopping list of PVC pipe and fittings needed for leaping arches and mega trees not forgetting a pile of easels for building mini trees. Now I have to figure out if am goingto to get a sub panel for the extra juice requirements or spend the next 12 months buying LED strings with every spare dime. I watched the crazy lights show on TLC and am already worried that I'll turn into one of those crazies that starts putting the lights up in September. I have to go now and take my medication, wbuehler I wish you luck you may need it.

    This site is the cause
    But I do not mind buying items from the various suppliers to keep the addiction strong

    I can't want to get the DMX to Grinch boards that should really set the fever in
