There are many other forums out there that have a lot of information for the enthusiast, and it is not often that forums provide information on other sites for you to check out.

I would say that all the sites below have a US centric flavor and focus on 110V lighting in general, this is due to the large scene in the USA.

If i miss one let my know.

For me the grand-daddy of them and one of the first i found is Planet Christmas.
http://www.planetchristmas.com/

Want to get hard core then have a look at http://www.doityourselfchristmas.com/index.php home of the Renard series of controllers as well as Vixen software

also for the build it yourself person, http://diylightanimation.com/index.php home to the LYNX series of lighting equipment.

Looking for options to Vixen the LightShowPro is a good choice, the forums are at http://www.lightshowpro.com/forum.php

Light-O-Rama forums can be found at http://lightorama.mywowbb.com/

In the US there are many regional forums and if your in say Carolina then this is one of them http://www.christmascarolina.com/forums/


From Texas
And there is www.LoneStarHolidays.com who is having it's 2nd Annual Academy this weekend!


If someone has a forum that might be of interest then throw a link in the thread.

Cheers
Phil

For the very technically inclined who want to look over the shoulder of a couple of folks who are freshly rolling their own DIY (for Mac's), diyblinky.com is interesting. Skip and Charles are designing a whole series of new boards, with their own firmware, protocols, sequencer software etc - and they are documenting their process and progress as they go. This level of detail is of interest to a very limited subset of our hobby of course.
