    I am not sure weather to put this in the new handbook as a tip or what....
    But here it is...
    As the season is fast approaching and I am getting a little behind on things, I spent a couple hours putting together a new element. With all that I was doing, gluing, wiring, cutting whatever... I started to wire the bollards together.
    These are pixels and are to be wired in series, from one to the next.
    see if you can see what is wrong with the first picture...

    The second photo is a much smarter way of wiring :)

    Don't we think better when we drink, as my first year, I've had an incredible time learning about Blinky lights, I've had to read Fasteddys 101 manual more times than I can count, learn stuff I thought I would never learn, and when Blinky lights just start working and you have that itch to make more, yes you have this incredible urge to drink and wire some more.

    I thought I had learnt after last year, I wired a couple of my plugs incorrectly, so I printed a big photo of a correctly wired plug and stuck it to my bench as a reference so as not to make that mistake again.

    On the up side I did manage to get them finished (the next night)
