    We're not worthy! We're not worthy! as Wayne & Garth used to say.

    You guys rock!

    Me without you guys thinking this stuff up = no blinky flashy, just boring static display.

    Me with you guys leading the way = 128 dimmable channels in '08!

    Wooo Hooo!

    Thanks a million to all you guys who think up this stuff!

    I have an immense amount of respect for our developers. I know that these guys have a HUGE amount of experience and in some cases a gift if you will. As far as me developing something,... Thats kinda like asking a guy whose dabbled in music to become a rock star. Oh ya, I'll be the Al Bundy looking Neandertal behind the curtain covered garage going "I knew I could do it" as I feverishly flicked the light switch. First on, then off, sometimes slow and oh ya (Big finale) sometimes fast. The whole time watching carefully to see when people try to tune their radios just so I can start to whistle silent night as if on que. This all as I know I can't walk and chew gum,.... "oh who am I kidding."

    Great points Macrosil. I have to give my appreciation to the talented developers. I only wish I knew how to do a fraction of what they are capable of. I am here to help in any way and maybe I can learn. I support every aspect of what everyone here does. Keep up the good work. If you need help, I will do what I can. You all deserve to be recognized.

    ROFL!

    While we were on our annual "drive to look at the lights" a few years ago, we saw our first animated display and I decided that we were going to do this someday. After looking at some of the commercially available controllers, we decided that there was no way that we were going to spend that much money. Being a long-time electronics experimenter, I decided that I would try to design a controller myself. After building a few prototypes, I soon realized that I was in over my head. Then, while doing some research on the Internet I stumbled upon computerchristmas.com and then this forum. I knew right away that I found the right place. So began my addiction to this stuff. I am very grateful to all of the developers who have selflessly donated their time and intellect to this community. Hopefully with the knowledge that I gain from here, I will someday be able to contribute a design of my own.

    I would also like to commend you Brian for creating and maintaining the conduit by which all of this great talent is disseminated. I think that you are doing a great job of being fair but not overbearing. I have been a moderator on a few forums, so I have an idea of how difficult it can be, especially as the forum gets larger and you have such a wide variety of opinions and personalities to deal with.

    Hmmmm … a little of this … a little of that … some smoke … a few chants (maybe curses) … "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble" … "Developers?" … No! -- There be Wizards! Of which, I am not able to even qualify as the lowest of apprentices. I bow to you Oh Great and Might Wizards.
    And, after a bit of Shakespeare, a quote one of my favorite bands (Dr. Hook), "Thank you, oh thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"
    The world would be a much darker place without you guys. Again, Thank You for all the smiles and light you help bring into the world.
