  1. Rick Have you looked at holiday sequences dot com? he has some non christmas stuff, I am not a rock or metal kind of listener but I believe he has something you may like, look under patriotic and the other non christmas headings he has. holidaysequences.com is the address or just google him. Keith
  2. JR Couldn't make the class, will you be able to send me the video from this week, appreciate it if you can. Keith
  3. Oh darn, sorry to hear that, I still haven't cured my microphone issue and using your video I decided to skip last nights class, I should have emailed or messaged you sorry. Really got a lot out of your first class but honestly got more from the video cause I could replay tips like your vowel rules and how to find the end and beginning of a word, my daughter in law is coming for Fathers Day dinner tonight so maybe I can get her to cure my microphone problem in time for next weeks class if you have one. I am betting your right about it being fathers day weekend and the reason for no shows, so don't get down cause it was a busy weekend here, and I bet it was every where else, we really do appreciate your time and effort, Thank You Keith
  4. JR When possible could you send me week 3 video, I have found the video you sent me from week 2 was actually easier to follow and make good use of your techniques cause I can rewind kind of and go over your tech suggestions at my learning speed. I really appreciate your effort and time, Thanks, Keith
  5. I am waiting on the week 2 video when you have time, Thanks Keith
  6. JR, can we use the same link from last weekend or will we need a new one? Keith
  7. I would give LOR a phone call or email, that doesn't sound right. I just received 2 very large packages of wire frame's for xmas and the shipping for both was $95. Now of course the weight of mine was near nothing, just bulky, but I wouldn't think the tree's could weigh much. Keith
  8. Exactly, great class, even without my microphone working I still made more progress sequencing the singing trees with JR's class than I thought possible, Thank You my friend. Keith
  9. I am guessing now you know, but I think this confirms LOR is headed to the pixel/rgb way of lightning in a big way, this is the first mad grab sale that I recall the ctb16 residential controllers didn't sell out, usually within minutes. They still had them available at sales end. Keith
  10. JR, didn't get my email yet. Keith- I pm'd you my email, gonna do it again rt now
  11. Just received my LOR Mad grab sale email announcement, ya hoo. Starts Friday night. What are you aiming to get at this sale, I may get a spare controller, just need to count to see if I need another spare.
  12. JR Can you or anyone who knows give us a run through on how this will work. Will I need 2 computers? One to sequence with and the other to view/ask questions. What is zoom? will I need to download something prior to class, any other equipment needed? Thanks, Keith
  13. Martyscart Really good, my wife is also making masks, using a lot of her old scraps, sent a few dozen of all kinds to my sister in California, she works in a hospital and asked for masks, she was a regular production line for a while, but thank goodness she's back to work LOL. GSSmith wife said she has R2-D2 in white and X wing fighters in blue, pick one or both and IM me your address and I'll mail them to ya. Her sister and her have been a regular production line of these things, I believe it is beginning to be a completion with them, us in Florida and her sister in California, they are trying to mask the country LOL. Keith
  14. So this is a RGB / Pixel type tree right. I thought the OP was working on a conventional string tree. My Mega tree is 135 strands of red white blue LED strands, 46 channels, I tie wrapped 3 strings to a 1/8 inch diameter steel cable times 45 strings. I use 2 boat winch cranks to pull the 135 strings up the 24 foot. RGB would be easier to put up sounds like, but the sequencing is what keeps me from going the RGB route.
  15. Dave76 Putting a 20 foot mega tree up with half on a driveway is a real challenge, if I had to do that I would think of putting in a threaded insert into the concrete or asphalt driveway. I use a 10 foot diameter of 1 inch pvc as the base ring for my 24 foot tree and the light strings are attached to the pvc at the bottom. Then I drive 1/2 rebar into the ground to hold the pvc ring to the ground. You could do the same and over the driveway portion attach the pvc ring with a u clamp or metal strap clamp bolted to the driveway into the threaded insert/anchor. Then when season is over just unbolt the ring and the threaded inserts could be driven over until needed next season. You will probably have to hose them out to remove the inevitable dirt and such that gets in. Hope that helps, I wasn't sure what you mean by independent but if needed elaborate and we'll help as needed. Keith
