    Running power across public sidewalk

    I had an AUSGRID inspector come to my property due to some **!!?? person calling anonymously suggesting there was a problem. (There wasn't.) I had a 240v cable laid in the footpath expansion joint and covered with bathroom silicone that led to my tune to sign in the verge. This was fine (and...

    Using mix of static displays with controllable displays

    Keep up the good work and go for developing onto the next stage with controllers. I started with a lot of fixed lights and then wanted to control them I used a Light o Rama box and split the lights into 16 zones. Start putting music to it and the world is your oyster. I never forget what someone...

    Projector Suggestions

    I have used a Benq projector for the last 4 years to display santa in my window. It cost around $500. The most important factor is the lumens. You need at least 2,200, preferably better.

    Sydney/NSW Road Trip - NSW Central Coast

    Is this trip still on? If it is, unfortunately I can't follow on behind with OZAZ as my family have deserted me and I am left to keep little brats off the display. However, If you are coming this way, I am happy to see what beers are in the fridge and even get some sausages on the Barbie.

    Sydney/NSW Road Trip - NSW Central Coast

    My show should be up and running by then. It is always a conundrum when to switch on. I tend to do the second week in December. When do others start?

    Can't connect F16v3 to laptop

    Help. I'm trying to set up my new Falcon controller and can't connect to the web interface page. I have tried changing the type of network connection and the IP address.

    Mirror Tricks

    Doesn't Pepper's Ghost use glass as the reflective layer not a mirror?

    Mirror Tricks

    Thanks, good idea. I googled how to build and came up with some relatively easy ways to construct. Even some ideas for puting pixels in other positions to enhance the effect. Definitely a way forward.

    Mirror Tricks

    I have two big mirrors that have come from bathroom renovations. I feel sure that I can use them in my display, perhaps something along the lines of a kaleiderscope. Has anyone any ideas of what I could do, or has anyone done something with mirrors like this before?
