Hey im Bobby, I live in Indiana. This is gonna be my first year sequencing and I am taking the plunge with pixels too. I have already received and assembled my 682's, just waiting on the pixels. Its gonna be a long summer.
Welcome to ACL bobby. It sounds like you already have a handle on some of this stuff. If you have any questions or need any advice, don't be afraid to ask. Jump in the chat room every now and then to see what's going on.
I live in Michigan, like a lot people I have switched most of my display over to RGB LED's.
I think you will find good answers here and a lot help when needed. Good luck and remember don't tackle to much the first year and start real early.
Welcome, Bobby. Gonna be 80 degrees here in Richmond today and I'm assembling elements for my light show this year. I used to think it was crazy that stores started putting christmas stuff out after halloween. Now it's becoming an all year event for me. But I love it! I hope you'll be able to post some of your handiwork in the Show-off Arena. This is a great site with lots of great folks. If you have any questions, I'm sure you'll find the answers here.
