    Well this is slightly embarrassing, but here's the rather underwhelming result of 12 months' effort.

    I have a habit of leaving things till the last minute and, predictably, Murphy's Law caught me out ..... at the last minute. So the ridge line and the right hand side of the roof didn't get installed, and the tint tubes and pixel matrix and a few other things didn't get finished.

    The stars were chucked together at the "last minute" in an attempt to salvage some respectability. Their sequencing was accidental - I plugged them into channels that would have been used by unfinished sections of the gutter leds. They're a bit busy, but under the circumstances, that's probably not a bad thing.

    I notice that the timing is a bit off in a few places, and the video washes out the colour a bit too, but for 2012, this is it!

    Are you kidding me? That was a good display. The roof alone was a great design. I can see that being copied by others. :)
