    Still not sure how to embed the Vimeo links in a post. I followed the suggested wiki procedure below but it doesn't seem to work for me?

    Posting Links

    "To embed a YouTube or Vimeo video in an ACL post, simple past the link into the normal text area. Once you post (or preview) it will show up as the familiar video box."

    Thanks Alan, you are looking at the corro creation controlled by your 2811DC15's. Didn't miss a beat the whole month and many thanks for putting this idea together. Made life much easier being able to just thrown these in at the tree bases.

    Mick, these icicles are all custom made LED lengths from mysolarled. I basically bought 2 icicle strings of 4 colours to fit along the whole gutter length.

    2 x red
    2 x blue
    2 x green
    2 x white

    I sent mysolarled the drawn up quote request below and can not fault their communication, the process was great. I know other members have used mysolarled before and I will be using them again if I have the need. They were also made 100% to my requested dimensions with the waterproof connectors on.

    I thought about going an RGB option but I still really like the smaller LED look. If my house was further away from the street I would have gone the RGB route.

    Excellent display. The new gift boxes are a very nice addition.
