Hi All, I am an absolute newbie to Christmas lights, yet alone computer controlled ones, but I've promised my 6 and 4 year old Girls that we'll have a display next year, so I'm in the learning phase. My profession is computer programming and one of my hobbies is practicing a "do it yourself" attitude that I learnt growing up on a farm and have a Shed/Workshop to support it. Hopefully this gives me some chance, but I'm not underestimating the task before me, it looks HUGE! I've started reading the Wiki and am now downloading the 101 Reference and plan to simply read before asking my first of my many hopefully not so stupid questions. Regards, Glenn.
