Hi everyone, This is a terrific site, so thank you for all the great content. I am trying to absorb and have already read a great deal having downloaded the beginners 101 book (btw, I thought the lights for dummies was just fine). To start, I have NO experience with blinky, flashy, RGB, pixel lights - BUT, I have the advantage of being a quick study both from a musicians background as well as a computer science degree (with a smattering of electrical engineering). I put up lots of lights each year and cover 8 trees along with bushes + characters, wood displays and spotlights. Looking forward to retirement and having more time on my hands, I want to get into computer controlled lighting. I look forward to the help and advise that I'm sure everyone is willing to provide. Thanks in advance!
