    I think this is going to be the "Official Manual" of Christmas decorating

    [​IMG]That is a fantastic manual.
    It is official, IMO, this is the best blinky site in the world. I have been on several other sites (not dogging them), however this manual puts most all the threads and info into one location for all beginners to get a good and complete understanding of what is needed to make their displays go blinky.
    There will be a lot less [​IMG] because of this manual.

    Thank you all for all your hard work and ongoing sources of information.

    What a great document, thanks to all that put this together.


    It is often hard to get all the info together in on resource, this sure does that.


    Thanks again

    Amazing job Eddy. I know I'm going to be using this a lot. Thanks for all the hard work that you and the rest of the team have put into this. I can't wait until I have some time to thoroughly read through (rather than just skimming it to see the content) and now I really want to get my hands into some RGB for this year.

    For those that don't realise it the ACL lighting manual is almost entirely a labour of love by Fasteddy. He has created this manual by himself with a bit of editorial input from a few in chat who have access to the earlier drafts over the last few weeks. It's an incredible credit that 1 man has put in dozens of hours of work on such a comprehensive manual.

    Well done Eddy

    It's a huge credit to fast eddy for all his hard work he has put into this manual. I know it will be a lot of help for myself and everyone else who is looking to getting into computerised lighting.

    Bravo, BRAVO!!!

    Although there is no mention of me in the manual (or perhaps Dummies is aimed at me), I cant help but think that this is the best thing i have read in my time within the community.

    Thanks guys and more importantly, thanks eddy.
