Hi all, have been researching Christmas lights now since Jan 2011 and although last year did my head in, I now have a beginner to basic intermediate understanding of most of the threads here and what I want to accomplish for a display in the future (cash strapped but Kerry Packer ideas). I have one possible suggestion to help us New Elf's and those who may be unfamiliar with a post/subject! and that is to supply a link in the post to an example (the product and/or display incorporating the topic in question) of what is being discussed. An example - TOPIC: Pixel strips and the p12r and LSP After a google search for 'Pixel strips and the p12r and LSP' resulted in little or no information, then a google search for P12r & LSP resulted in a link to http://www.lightshowpro.com/hardware/2571-auschristmaslighting-using-pixels-j1sys-ecg-p12r-controller-guide.html which then resulted in a google search for 'J1Sys Ecg-P12R' which resulted in a link to http://www.j1sys.com/ecg-p12r/ which showed me a picture of what was being talked about in the thread which was? All of about five to ten minutes. Ooops what was that thread about? Just a thought. Its like when I talk to the misses about computers she gets a blank look until I show her what I am doing.
