  1. James - if this sequence is still available, Can I grab a copy ndutton@the-brit.com?
  2. certainly..... but remember this is for a very specific application. I carry minimal load on each circuit even if I hadn't tripled up (aka nowhere near the theoretical limits). The reality of this is that, as you point out, this isn't the >100ft light load extension cord, with an indoor multi socket adapter plugged in it which I am sure most people do ;). - It is a more weather proofed solution in which I calculated out the load potential for my application and as I said, its just an idea... people should use it only as inspiration and adapt it suitably for their scenario.
  3. No it is not armoured and so not considered a raceway conduit, I wanted the cable to be flexible but ground conductor is available to the circuit. (I am also confused by your statement. Its a 12 conductor cable, there are 6 pigtails (so 6 hot), which means there are 6 conductors leftover.. Therefore theoretically, with a shared conductor for N and another shared for GND that creates 4 spares (though in my actual case 2 of those are being used for additional shared N and 2 for additional shared GND. I think you are assuming that I ran a neutral for each pigtail. Maybe this will help explain: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4a691froa6vc0ee/12 core.pdf?dl=0
  4. hi there, did this every percolate up?
  5. Thought you might be interested to see some modifications I did on a controller. I have a number of regular small props clustered together. I've always had the controller on the periphery with several extension cords connecting them to the controller. After this 2019 season closed I made a plan to change that and attached is the result. The cable is a 12 core 16 gauge cable with all the old connectors moved down to a "distribution box". The current box offers 6 outlets but potentially I could add another 4 with fly leads of longer lengths if needed. Just an idea if you need it.... https://www.dropbox.com/s/4ix03ivjyaccump/IMG_6161.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/wuxjovda9zdyfc8/IMG_6162.jpg?dl=0 Note: the cable glands are weather proof design.

  6. Looks like you have some hard coded links in your examples
  7. Sorry I missed your reply. I've been offline for a little while. Suddenly realising its Xmas and that i need to get myself into gear!
  8. Sure - I'll give them a blast... Thanks! ndutton <at> the-brit.com
  9. REPORT BASED ON VERSION 5.3.6 I found 2 minor bugs in the automation of prop generation. Here is how to reproduce. Open a preview design Add Item Select "Add a LOR device" Using the logical flow Type a name for the prop Select the device type, eg. Cosmic Color Ribbon/Bulb BUG 1: Name is overwritten with "CCD". Suggest flip the logical flow so that select device is first in the layout. Enter Unit ID, Network type (in my case Enhanced) Select CCB with 2 strings Select: Setting 2 has its own Unit ID (base Unit ID + 1) Now review this picture: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hm7gfi17ej8s0zb/20190825 CCBs.png?dl=0 I show here 2 examples... The Orange shows the name I selected. This transfers as expected to the prop list The Red shows the ID. BUG 2: Notice that the name uses the initial base ID throughout the prop list despite the 2 ID selection. In example 1, they are all addressed 01 as opposed to 01 and 02. In example 2, they are all addressed 03 as opposed to 03 and 04 The second bug (as listed) is either a bug or my mis-understanding of what I would expect based on my selections. Either way, I see it as wrong.
  10. Has anyone sequenced the Billie Eilish song, Bad Guy?
  11. This is one of those topics where a video tutorial course that takes you from nothing to a complete sequence (even if the training sequence is a short sentence, such as "welcome to our lightshow") - just something that joins all the pieces and spells it out.
  12. thanks for drawing my attention to the Pre Scale image option
  13. When you say accelerated scroll, what do you mean ? I was hoping that you meant that you could jump down the fonts by pressing the 1st letter or using the scroll wheel. That doesnt appear to be the case though
