Believe it or not we really haven't been off the radar, just got caught up in all the summer festivities. Took a nice family vacation, a lot of work around the house, and some school prep as the kids get ready to start another year of high school, college, and med school. However, don't fear.......the light show planning has not slowed down. We have been working on some major infrastructure upgrades. One project that was completed this year was a 100 amp subpanel installation. We got by last year, but likely had a few code violations. For 2013 we are fully legal and ready to go with a little electrical capacity to spare. We also spent time debugging our new megatree. We did a trial run in the Spring in the back yard and it was running at about the 75% level. After several more hours and some great help by the Light-O-Rama help desk we have it running at full capacity! It took some firmware upgrades, a dedicated show PC, and three separate Ethernet networks, but it is a thing of beauty. Finally, we have spent some time beginning to construct the new display props for the 2013 show. Our shipment of LED light came in in August so now it is full speed ahead. Only 75 days until installation begins. Updated pics are in the 2013 planning page.
