    Hi Guys,


    Last year I had an extremely modest display of LED multifunctions on the fences of my house and the pillars. This year I am trying to get organised for a more comprehensive effort - I truly enjoy christmas as a highlight of my year and have always been 'chief in charge' of lights at my house, even as a boy.


    Hopefully I can rely on advice as required.


    Thanks and Regards,
    Jarrod

    Welcome from one newbie to another... :D
    And might I say if you get hooked half as much as I have, then believe me, you will have an automated display.
    Start with downloading one of the free sequencers like vixen3 and have a play on these cold winter nights to see how your place could look.
    Then hold on to your wallet as you clean the last of the moths out of there, It will be squeaky clean in no time :eek:

    Even with some of the links a little dated, if you haven't found it yet, the AusChristmasLighting 101 manual is a great resource and a new updated release is in the works.
