    Yep, one of the best time wasters out there... And much less frequent updates, and you know how people feel about that :D

    Seriously:
    1. Pixel counts on controllers - advantages and disadvantages of making out each port
    2. Music and video choices - where to get them legally
    3. Basic setup (something for the new people, maybe as a breakout group). From wiring to simple basic show configuration and outputting to lights. Lets try to make this something that we have demo's on more than 1 brand of controller
    4. Repair of pixel strings (Sorry I dont do pixel strip, but maybe someone can demo that too?)
    5. Building your own props - ideas, building and use
    6. Storing all this stuff!

    When Xlights can export to Minleon SD card and can operate the NDB via E1.31 or ArtNet then Lss seems redundant.
    I must say I haven't even looked at Lss as Xlights does everything I want and need plus more

    Power, voltage, current and connection requirements for lighting elements.There are basics that really need to be understood.
    The use and using of tools. Crimpers, bootlace crimpers, soldering iron and multimeters.
    Much as I'd love to get to a NSW I don't see it happening.

    7. Absolute must again is waterproofing, how much silicone to use... and things to check when using strip (counts you out ll, lol)
    8. Enclosure's, Central location versus controllers out in field, advantages and disadvantages of each.
    9. Power injection, PSU's, Fusing, general electrical, maybe some OHM's Law exams, advanced physics, sex education? (BensLights would benefit from this one)
