    Hi All,

    I thought I should introduce myself.

    I have a history of static displays, nothing impressive though.

    My inspiration for going computerised started with creativelightingdisplays.com "This is Halloween" video.

    I started looking at what Australian's are doing and found Fast Eddy's show (great song mix btw) and naturally found these forums from there.

    I am thinking I will go LOR with DMX and DC led all the way (with some exceptions - as always), but am open to feedback from people who know more then me :)

    I work as a Network Systems Administrator at a private school in Brisbane, so I know computers and networking. As a full time geek I also like to learn as much about electronics as I can (although I can't solder to save myself).

    Well that's it, bye!

    You have a great wealth of knowledge all around you. This is the place to be when wanting to make your display go blinky.
    Lots of information in the forums and Wiki. If you can't find what you looking for or have any questions just post a question in the forums or jump into the chat room and ask. Many friendly people here that will be glad to give you an answer your point you in the right direction.
