    Hi to everyone. I have been following posts on this site for quite a while and I have only now finally gotten around to registering. I should have done it ages ago. I have been doing static displays for 8 years but for this year I am thinking of buying a couple of LOR dc boards. Is it strange that I am already planning and looking forward to Xmas 2012?

    Hi Army72

    Welcome to ACL.

    The only thing considered strange around here is NOT thinking about xmas at this time of the year.

    Cheers
    Phil

    Welcome!

    And don't feel sorry... CLAP is very contagious, and is spreading like wildfire all over the world!

    That's not strange in these forums or chat room. If your looking to grow your animation slowly like me or go big like many others here, all the help you need is available. Just ask.

    It's a fun bug too. There is no known cure for it. I think that's because none of us want a cure. :)

    Welcome Army72. The more the merrier on this site!

    I've got a similar background to yourself, static display for about 7 years. I found this site a week or so before Christmas 2011 and already I have caught the CLAP big time, having researched, chatted and purchased gear to go from wow to WOW in 2012!

    Cheers, Graham
