Good luck!

Same as posted on "owning thread" :

 

(1) 50Watt RGB Flood

(4) CTB16PC Cards

(1) Spare miniDirector

Some SPT wire , SPT plugs & connectors, RJ45 dangles

In & out - 7 mins - BAM!! DONE!!

Should have been 3 mins. Freaking card wouldn't go, back-up wouldn't go - Paypal went - the one the screwed me last year - go figure...

I had a problem with my CC also and had to go to PayPal. I had to do it on my phone, maybe i got tripped up by the "robot" question because for some reason that section of the page didn't render very well on the phone.

Picked up a pair of the 50w RGB floods to put under my trees. I did get the are you a robot question.

I noticed that things sold out a lot slower this year. In fact they still have pxcon16's. I'm tempted to get one to play with.

Realized this morning that I should have gotten more SPT wire since I have a new controller box, but it's sold out now.  Oh well.  I'll get it next time around.

... and I've only been accused of killing 1 baby!

I'd say this is a great sale so far! :)

Oh....  Forgot to mention....

I tried to merge all the different 'this is what I got' threads into this single one just to keep things clean.  Sorry if it looks a little funky.  Go ahead and feel free to update people on what you got here :)

The robot question did not render well on my desktop either.  Its container was too small so I had to zoom out to see the checkbox.   It used a few seconds in the heat of the 100 yard dash.

That robot thing is something new that Yahoo (who hosts our store) is doing.  There must have been issues with Yahoo storefronts and automated systems, so they added that as a check to ensure you are human.  It's called a 'capcha', and I hate them too.  Until we have a reliable Voight-Kampff machine, it's the best they can do :D

Why would a replicant want light controllers?      We need 5 more questions to see if they are real.

I'm really surprised at some of the stuff that's still available - now almost 19 hours after the sale started.  I just made my second purchase a few minutes ago.

You DO know that just because they still have stuff on sale doesn't mean you need to buy more.  :D

Don't let Dan hear you say that!

Well, it goes like this.  Today I have two controllers that won't run on an enhanced network.  One is a 16 channel AC controller in the attic that runs four channels during my landscape lighting and an additional six for Christmas.  The other is an ancient 8 channel AC controller that runs exactly one channel year round - and that channel is only 100% on (it's a security light next to the parked cars).  I want to move everything to enhanced networks so I can sequence everything in SuperStar and use intensity files from SS to control the show.  I have to leave one of the three LOR networks as non-enhanced because I use inputs which won't work on an enhanced network.  All three LOR network cables pass through a junction box right next to the 8 channel controller in the garage, so leaving that controller on the non-enhanced network would not be a real problem.  Replacing the 16 channel controller in the attic was far more important.  Therefore, my priority when the sale started was the replacement Third generation 16 channel controller in the attic.  That controller was also expected to sell out very quickly.  So when the sale started, I grabbed the one 16 channel controller and quickly completed the purchase. 

This morning I did a little money calculation (I'm also placing a Ray Wu order today), and determined that I could go ahead and replace the 8 channel controller - hence the second order....

I'm done...

Must be big, but I am sure that it is much smaller than a large pixel display!

 

I always think that one channel of 110v is better than 1 channel of pixels.
