  1. I too am spoiled and live <5 miles from work. Takes me about 10 minutes by car on the freeway. If I take my bicycle it takes me 15 minutes on side streets. My wife works for the same hospital but at a clinic in the other direction and is <4 miles away. Some of my Nursing co-workers drive 1.5 to 2 or more hours away.......couldn't do it / wouldn't do it
  2. I've gotten all mine from HC. I have had ( 0 ) Zero Zilch Nada None problems with anything from HC. Maybe I'm one of the lucky few. 100% of my strips: dumb and smart including nodes and pixels and all of my controllers are from HC. They offer warranties now but you have to pay a little extra. I get the 3 year warrenty on all my controllers now. I think its worth it. But i know several people will disagree and say it should be included and there stuff is crap and belongs in hell....yada yada yada. This year I ordered more lights though from Ray Wu due to price and convenience because of additional things I ordered. I've only read good things about his stuff so I'll reserve my input until I try them out. Just my 2 cents or 1 cent...oh hell it ain't worth nothin.....
  3. Glad I started young with my children. I'm 46 now and have 4 kids: 26,24,19,17. My youngest baby girl graduates in 1 week and heads off to college this fall. The wifey turns 44 so we will be young "Empty Nesters". In hindsight, it would have been nice to stay enlisted otherwise I too would have been able to retire at 44.....c'est la vie
  4. I'm 46 I started with LOR in 2012.
  5. Deployed to Bahrain, Saudi Arabia. Literally 2 weeks out of AIT. November of '90 to March '91. I've got some pretty CRAZY memories of things that went down while stationed there.
  6. 2/7 ADA..... stationed out of McGregor Range New Mexico. Me too early 90's. Desert Sheild and Desert Storm action. Those missles did some crazy A$$ stuff
  7. US Army. 4 years. MOS: 24T10 - Patriot Missile Operator / Mechanic.
  8. That too... and how many controllers can be used
  9. Unless you have 240 controllers in your network set the search parameter to the number of controllers you actually have or like 5 or 10 or 15 and so on. Otherwise it will take FOREVER for the software to "look" for all of the LOR controllers on the network.
  10. Do a restart...NOT a power off/on. Powering off/on does not reset the internals. It saves the settings for the next power on cycle. Once you restart is resets the settings. The backwards time thing will happen if you haven't done this in a while
  11. I built mine using Holiday Sequences matrix panel using square pixels. I made the frame out of 2x1 wood strips. I have also ordered the Monster Matrix Panel from Boscoyo Studio to cut down to smaller ones. I am building 4 smaller matrices for some columns that are located near my sidewalk. The matrix panel from HS is 1.9" pixel spacing. That one give or take will be around 40-80 feet away depending on where you are standing or driving. The matrix panel from Boscoyo has spacing of 1.125" pixel spacing. So, the viewing distance give our take will be from 2-60 feet depending on where you are standing or driving. The tighter pixel spacing for the closer viewing distance.
  12. I ooggled and drooled over LOR displays for a few years. Before i took the plunge and bought my first 16 ch controller in 2014. I had been doing static displays for about 20 years. Fast forward to 2015...3 LOR controllers, a 12 strip 12 tree, 12x50 pixel tree and 4 tree singing faces. Then in 2016 i added 20 - 10w rgb floods and 6 - 50 watt rgb floods. Each year i get more ( it never ends. Lol) This year is a new 24x50 pixel matrix (built and tested for the upcoming season). And possibly a 24 strip matrix (still thinking about this one)
  13. Some people on this forum are using smart pixels for the outline only and dumb for the eyes and mouth expressions. This is what I'm going to do this year as well.
  14. I more UV flood for Halloween bringing my total to 3. I too am switching over to pixels completely. There are better deals for hardware and such elsewhere.
  15. Sorry to hear this. Those of us with pets can relate. This past year I had to let one of my boxers and a cat go to the happy hunting ground in the sky. Hope you feel better soon.
