    First off ... Sorry if this is a lengthy post (can't see "flooding" with multiple posts) (if this is the wrong area, PLEASE move)
    After doing SOOOO much research (reading & chat) on ACL, I started to get a handle on things. Received a ECG-P2, power supplies, WS2811 Pixel Strip, Raspberry Pi, (waiting on nodes and pigtails from Ray)

    Series of events:

    Read ... Posted ... Chatted ... (repeat)

    Got ECG-P2 up and running ... connected strip ... had BLINKY (using test) ... Messed with Vixen 3 ... After tinkering, got BLINKLY through Vixen (w/effects) ... (still only one strip) ... Raspberry Pi came in ... took a bit of configuring, but now have Pi accessible through my home network (via WiFi and outputting E1.131 through Ethernet)

    I'm going to TRY to attach pictures of what I am thinking of doing with what I have learned on this site!!!

    Not good :( ... can't get photos or EXCEL to upload !!!

    ACL is AWESOME !!!!!
