If I may borrow from a thread over at PC...

You know this Christmas light thing has gone too far when...

With the very thought of 960 red status lights blinking then turning solid, you know how a conductor must feel when they step up to the podium and a great orchestra raises their instruments, ready for his/her commands.

Worse, You realize that if the controllers were set side by side that they would extend from goal post to goal post on a football field! ( each controller is around 12" wide, 960ft /3 = 120 yards!)

OK I guess I cannot add! 300 feet =100 yards! Darn new math!

So you would have 3 rows of controllers goal post to goal post! Sorry for the confusion, just the thought of all those controllers!!!!

Let's figure this out...

960 controllers x 1' per controller - 960 feet.

One full football field: 360 feet (100 yards + 10 yards + 10 yards = 120 yards x 3 feet per yard)

360 feet + 360 feet = 720 feet.

960 feet - 720 feet = 240 feet.

240 feet = line at mens restroom at halftime.

So there you go - 960 controllers will cover 2 football field lengths, plus the line at the bathroom at halftime. :-)

What football field do you play on that has the goal posts on the touchdown line? It's always 10 yards back.... 100 yards and ten yards and then there's the other ten yards = 120 yards... Ding dang fuzzy math. Never makes sense. :shock: 3 x 120 = 360, only 600 feet of controller length to account for...

Hmm maybe thats why the Cardinals never win!!!

I was figuring the extra 20 yards for the goal posts in but still gooped it up hahahhaa!

But i do like the halftime bathroom line measurement myself!

Maybe the bigger question should be How many cases of beer is it going to take to wire these babies up and sequence them?

I have no clue how many will help, but if you figure 24 people wiring and sequencing for 2 weeks solid working 8 hour days. Each one drinks one beer for morning break, 2 for lunch, 1 for afternoon break, then 2 more and the end of the day would equal 84 cases.
