    Retired electrician, 70 year old just getting into Christmas light displays.

    My first time playing with this Christmas lighting was to do a display for a locale
    family in my home town. About 40,000 LEDs & 192 LOR Channels.
    Damn, now I just got to do my own home in 2012.
    I learned a hell of a lot very fast on this display.
    I now have the latest LOR & LSP software to learn & master for 2012.
    I may be posting 24/7 on this forum so please be easy on this 70 year old.
    It's not my fault, I just happened to come alone before most of you.
    Hell, I may be one of your uncles......LOL

    I would be very thankful for any comments or help to improve it, from ya'll.
    Thanks: oldmanfathertime1000 :} <3

    Welcome to the forum

    Glad to have you on board, maybe we can even teach some new tricks.

    More likely you may teach us some.

    Cheers

    Lot of information in the forums and Wiki.
    If that’s not enough, there is the chat room also.
    No such thing here as silly or dumb questions, so if you can't find what you are looking for or don't understand something please ask.

    Welcome to ACL, a perfect hobby for a retired electrician, i myself am an electrician but am now in management so this is a way to still play with the tools. The fact that you are an electrician already puts you miles ahead than most as you already understand the basic principles of electricity and design. So ask away in the forum as there are many willing to help and im sure you will have a fantastic display for 2012
