    That's no good Roo. At least you will have 12 months to plan out the big show. What controllers are you having problem with?

    Merry Christmas

    Feel your pain Roo, was behind, but had a bigger better show planned this year, then the "mega tree" fell on the house and there will be no show this year. I have some pretty colors and some of the props out that I did for this years bigger and better. Still plugging along for next year, 300 more nodes to put into Boscoyo strips..

    Roo, I know the feeling. I almost quit. Glad I didn't give up. If nothing else you can continue to learn. Stick with it. Lots of helpful folks to help you figure it out. Don't call it quits!

    Hey Roo I know how you feel, this is my first year with any sort of blinking lights so decided that RGB was the way. Wow what a steep learning curve it has been along with a huge year at work and a honey do list that never seems to get smaller I have only just got my mega tree up and running this afternoon. What a difference a day makes as yesterday I was just like you ready to give it a miss this year but the little lady convinced me to keep going. I only ran 4 short sequences without sound but I could hear parents calling kids to come and have a look which made all the hard work worthwhile. (and the wife was very excited as well :D )


    So now reinvigorated I plan on putting out my 10 mini trees tomorrow after work as well as getting the sound happening and keep working on some wire frames I have and will keep going even after xmas day as I figure its all good work for next year.


    If there is any way you can just get a very basic show going this year it will be worth it in the long run as it will help motivate you to keep working at it.


    All the best.

    Hi Roo,


    I have a saying, "some days you are the dog, the others - the tree"
    it seems that you have had a few "tree days", keep plugging away at it, your turn to be the dog will come, and it will be worthwhile. While you sort the networking out, get a virtual Santa, simple and very effective.
    all the best
