    Hi everyone in Christmas land
    Up front I would like to thank everyone on this forum for giving me the push I needed to stop procratinating and get going with my display.
    I have been doing static displays for the last 8 years and, thanks to the incredible amount of rain last Christmas, have had to replace 90% of my lights. Starting with a new new slate I have purchased 4 240v lor cards and am currently waiting on 4 24v cards as well and have been frantically learning how to sequense. Next order of business is to purchase some new lights and get ready.
    Major project for this year is a mini Mega Tree, (2.5m) and rewire my mega star (800mm accross) and my merry christmas sign.
    I know that the wonderful people on this site will be able to answer any queries I will no doubt have, and I have already picked up a few tips and tricks
    Talk to you soon
    Doug
