    I know the video is sideways, but it was recorded live, the first show at my house. Ever.

    Lots I would differently especially with the wiring. But I cannot stop smiling.

    Now to figure out schedules....

    Hey Binkles, congrats...I couldn't get the link to work but I'm sure it was awesome. We've had some success this week and it was a great feeling, all the hard work has paid off. We're hoping to have it all up and running for lights on this Sunday :D

    Nice job Binkles
    Wait till you get a nice compliment from a stranger passing by, then you'll get a real huge smile on your face. :D

    Nice work, I still remember that moment.
    Like Ozaz says, the compliments off strangers give you the warm and fuzzies also.


    You now officially have the CLAP 8)

    My neighbours popped out whilst I had just the test pattern running so I could ensure that I had everything connected in the right order (I didn't, and still don't whoops) and when I explained to them that I would have some music going, but it shouldn't be loud enough to bother them, and if it did to let me know.


    They said, it's christmas, and they can't wait to see them working.


    The little girl asked if I could do a rudolph song, so will try and get that working for her.

    Nice display. Always a steep learning curve the first year but you've done well. And like Scamper, i too remember the moment of my first (very small) synchronised display and mine was only using dumb strip - you've jumped straight into pixels! The kids will absolutely love it.
