    I just had the realisation that lights-on (I am planning for Saturday 29/11/2014) is only 16 Saturdays away! I don't know whether to feel like this :D or this :eek: .
    I'm interested to find out how everybody's plans are coming along.

    In my naivety I think my plans are coming along okay. Lights prepared, communication with lights okay, layout sorted and 1 song sequenced (well will finish this week). Just need to give it a practice run to make sure it looks like I imagine it after seeing the visualiser. Plan is to get a couple more songs sequenced as well. Just need a break from the kids sport and all will be sorted.

    Habbo, 16 weeks is 30% of a year. Its heaps of time and not much time all rolled into one.

    I haven't programmed one song yet. Starting this Friday. My new lights this year are built but I haven't tested anything as yet. My upgraded controller boxes from Tupperware containers are still waiting to be assembled.

    I keep telling myself I'm ahead of schedule. I guess I'm waiting for it to warm up and I can spend more time in my workshop.

    I think you need a fire in your workshop!
    I am the other way around, I feel guilty going in there if it is too warm out. I love lighting the fire on a cold winters day and hibernate in there tinkering on my lights.

    I would love to get near my shed. Been living away from home most nights in motels for the last few months. Then when I get home I feel guilty working on lights.
    Need to make more pin-wheels and candles and mini trees and finish my mega tree support frame and star then all the power boxes and wiring, then you say ...... ONLY 16 SATURDAYS LEFT :'( :'( :'( :'(

    I have chipped away at different stuff I need to do this year, mostly putting PCBs together. That has been kind of an adventure for me because I have never soldered before. I have one Bethlehem star to cutout and put lights on, then I need to gather up all the pieces for a mega tree (my first). So don't feel alone!

    Oh yeah, I still need to learn how to sequence in HLS; just haven't made time to learn that....

    Yeah I'll do it - even if it means sending a card to myself. ;)
