I finally made my way out into my ManCave (small corner in the garage, shared with a chest freezer). I needed to assertain where I am in reference to the construction of elements and the wiring.

So I started making a list.

Not overly happy with my lack of commitment over the past few weeks due to work, but here goes.

COMPLETE 4 x 2801 module Candy Canes
COMPLETE 8 X 3D Stars - Decided on velcro for connection to base
COMPLETE 4 X 4m arches
COMPLETE 1 x Tune to Sign (although may not use) NOT USED
COMPLETE 3 x 2801 strips need plugs attached. Will finish today.
COMPLETE purchase of 25mm conduit, cut to size, so i can accurately cut the strip to size and add end plugs to them.

COMPLETE Extension leads from PIXAD8 to lights, require conduit so I can make correct lengths of cable.
COMPLETE Sequencing, although 4 x songs 95% completed and time away in the coming weeks should extend this out to 5-6 songs sequenced. I know sequences are never completed, always tinkering.


NEXT YEAR 4 x mini trees, still unsure if I will have the strip left to complete
NEXT YEAR 1 x Beth Star, This may or may not come to fruition this year. Dependent on strip remaining.
NEXT YEAR 1 x mega tree - My time away this month will pay for it!


Still not sure if I will be here to erect the display, but better to plan for then rush for at the end

Edit.....
Show will go ahead, lights on Dec 7 or 8

nice - the sequencing will keep you busy....

What software are you planning on using?
Im using LSP atm. and i believe I will continue to use it. when i finally get myself a mega tree, then i dare say there should be a plugin from nutcracker :)
