So after being prompted by the wind to pack up my display on Saturday I finally had some time to see other people's displays tonight. For the last month and a half I have just about lived in the chatroom. In a matter of weeks I obtained RGB, did construction and got a display up that I'm reasonably proud of. I can say with 100% certainty it wouldn't have happened without ACL, both live interactions and advice, old forum posts, 101 guides, wikis, members who sell stuff, and just general banter to keep my enthusiasm up. David_AVD and AAH our resident electronics nuts. Shell making us all look bad and driving us to better things. Yagoona and Lithgow, for some reason I see them as twins in my head. FastEddy the professional. Superman, smartalec and Matt the ever-present quick-witted individuals in the chatroom. Marquisite the site tinkerer. Andy Harrison the LOR counterpoint to LSP Eddy. Trafficman, oldmanfathertime, hdracer, Karob talktocoxie, dougd and countless others. TuppetsDad and Sam I got to see in action tonight. Andrew Frazer I saw on Sam's screen . Tom82 and his lovely wife??? who I got to meet as they packed up and finally ԆцряєсϮ who spent 45 minutes with me tonight showing me all his setup, giving me fantastic real-life insight and just generally being welcoming and chatty. So many people I've come to know over such a short period of time. Never feeling like an outsider or treated as a newbie, always willing to help and laugh and chat. Servers, chat deaths, ownership, whatever. I don't care. What you have here is a fantastic community like no other and you should all be EXTREMELY proud and accept my sincere and heart-felt thanks to all of you. Lastly it would be remiss of me to forget all the 'new to lights' people this year. You are just as important as it's made me feel less incompetent and given me an opportunity to give back in some small way to others to lessen my guilt over leeching information from the experts. Bring on 2014 and I can't wait to see the creativity and community grow!
