  • About my display 2010- 90,000 lights, 8 AL controllers
  1. I have a couple of LC-64's that I am not using and willing to sell now if anyone is interested -Joel
  2. Picture from our local historical society of a house in the community decorated for Christmas in the 50's.
  3. I did not have any of my programming converted over.. I changed many things in my show and I just elected to start all over.
  4. I wouldn't hesitate to covert the controllers.. Drew Hickman from Holiday Technolgies coverted over 25 AL controllers from me last year. They are rock solid and perform well. I now have great customer service, software, and many more options. No regrets at all... other than I wish I would have done it several years ago.
  5. I felt your pain!!! Had over 25 of my animated lighting controllers converted over to LOR by Drew Hickman at Holiday Technolgies last spring. I contemplated doing it for a couple of years because of the cost of coverting 25, however best decision I have ever made. Better customer service, better availability, better software...
  6. Larry, I do have a couple of the brick style mb's if your still looking.
  7. Just an FYI... I received a discounted rate for booking five nights
  8. Nice job!!! I like the stream and pond of blue lights.
  9. Anyone have any extra monster brains? I'm just looking for a backup for my display. -Joel
  10. Merry Christmas!!!
  11. Nice job!! Looks great!
  12. I use 1/2" sch 40. I usually cut them about 12" long.
  13. I have had good luck using PVC stakes for candy canes. The biggest advantage for me is that the frost doesn't seem to grab on to them as much as the rebar that I was previously using. And we have had lots of frost this year in Michigan!!!
