Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

That's awesome!! My friend is a DJ at a pretty big club out here in IN, and he uses a program on a laptop to control all the lighting, so I'm sure it's something like that controling it.

light-o-rama.com if I remember correctly sells the controller boards for that kind of thing. All computer controlled and relatively easy to set up. Just costs a fortune for the dedicated electirical circuits and the lights themselves.

WOW, that was pretty damn cool. The dude has too much time on his hands, but I really liked the light show. Pretty creative.

I love Christmas.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Cool light show , but...

That's the type of people that make you wonder why you should even bother trying to put up lights.

One of our neighbors goes WAY overboard too. I just want to put a sign in my yard that says "Look at (his address) for lights".

And you should. Make sure your sign is simple and maybe a couple of bulbs.
