    new computer suggestions

    I just purchased an HP Omen with an i7-8700, 512 SDD, 2TB HD, 16M memory, and a NVIDIA GTX 1080ti 11G graphics card, plus 2 - 27" curved monitors. I'm thinking I should be able to do a little bit of video editing now with this baby. Now I'm just waiting for it to ship. Sigh....

    How to power the power supply?

    Back = Positive White = Neutral Green = Ground
  3. Hi All, I'm going to start sequencing TSO's Christmas Canon so I went out to Amazon to purchase the music and I see there's two versions. There's the Christmas Canon: https://smile.amazon.com/Christmas-Canon/dp/B001235DTW/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1536286076&sr=8-4&keywords=christmas+cannon But then there's also Christmas Canon (Remastered): https://smile.amazon.com/Christmas-Canon-Remastered/dp/B01LWOPA4T/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1536286461&sr=8-6&keywords=christmas+cannon Anyone know the difference? Thanks!

    So begins another year

    I usually start the first weekend in Oct. with the roof line (easier to do when there's no snow 😊 ). Then it's weekends and a full week after Halloween to get everything done in time for startup on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

    Controller Orientation Question

    Common practice is to keep them vertical with the cords hanging down to keep moisture from getting into the electronics. I've had good luck, though, putting mine in covered bins. The bin keeps the rain/snow off, I can stack 3-4 in a bin, and the bin pulls double duty for storage in the off-season.

    Forums slow to load

    Anyone else having issues with slow load times on the Forums? I've been having this problem both at home and at work so I don't think it's my hardware or Internet connection.

    When Do You Start Decorating?

    I start working the 1st weekend in October for the Christmas show (I don't do anything for Halloween) and work weekends until Halloween. After that I like to take a full week off to put out everything that goes in the yard and all of the wiring/controllers (I don't want the trick-or-treaters tripping over anything). The goal is to have everything up and running the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Not sure how I'm going to get it all done this year as I have to attend a conference the week I would normally take off.

    strobe light strings?

    Man - I sooo wish I had some extra $ right now to order some of these. I'm bumming 😢
  10. How about 'We are Santa's Elves' from Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer? It's a classic and it's really short.

    SHow Music

    I don't know that I've ever pulled something out of my show (unless I really didn't like my sequencing), so I really don't have a 'must haves' song list. I'm always trying to add new songs to provide more variety and so that it's not so repetitive. Right now I've got A, B, and C days with each day split into an early show and a later show. The last couple of years I've been focusing on adding more non-Christmas music as I typically run my show until sometime mid Jan (and I don't like to play Christmas music after Christmas).

    Looking for cheap 10w dumb RGB floodlights

    I got mine from ebay as well. They had a different circuit board than shown in the pics, but the same principals apply (just take out the existing power feed and replace it with new wiring).

    No motivation yet - help!

    Would you believe I'm still working on taking down and packing last year's display? I was snowed in until 3 weeks ago and have been traveling ever since. I've got a 5 channel dumb RGB star that I hope to get added to my sequences this year.
  14. Wow - I love the look of your trees with the colored straight strands and the clear spirals!

    Zara Radio temperature announcement

    Hi Keven, The only other place you might look would be the System Event Log, but I doubt there would be anything their either. I'm assuming it didn't display any error messages on the console screen? It's built to be pretty fault tolerant so that if it does run into an error it just recycles until the next wait time is over. It may be getting stuck on the web call to get the weather data but even that should time out eventually. Let me know if it keeps happening and I'll create a version with debug messages so that we can run it down. Joel
