I'm now located in the lighting friendly town of Bonham
Texas across the street from the VA, you can't miss
One of the very first musical animated displays using
100% LEDs controlled with D-Light Hardware
What happens when a workaholic self-taught computer
geek tries to retire?
Well, I decided to find the most complex,
involved hobby imaginable.
I love Christmas Lights and Fireworks, but since I'm
somewhat of a klutz, chemicals and gun-powder is not a really
good mix. So, lights it is. I restore old Pinball
Machines too, but that's another story.
I've been decorating with lights for more years than
I can remember and this is 2007 will be my fifth year of
animating my lights. The first year was totally pathetic
compared with what I'm doing now, but it was a start. I used 2
American DJ controllers and one Digital light show. I think
I'm the only person who noticed.
2004 was a different story, as I moved up
to 48 Channels of Light-O-Rama and programmed my first
sequences using their software. The first song I programmed
took me two weeks to complete, the second song took a couple of
days, and since I'm never really satisfied with my sequences,
they're never the same from the beginning of the season till the
very last day.
In 2005 D-Light introduced
their "build your own" boards, having known Darryl Quinn and his
software Comet from Computer Christmas years ago, the switch from
LOR to D-Light was a "no-brainer" in my
book. Since the introduction of the D-Light boards, I've built 32 8 channel A/C
boards, added 6 16 channel D/C boards, and just recently built
2 of their brand new 16 channel A/C
I know you're now thinking, "Wow!, that's a lot of channels!,
and you're correct. I used all for them when HGTV
taped the Allen display for their 2007 special, "What's With That
Decked Out Christmas House". That's about it for now, I'm
revamping my site with new R&D information on every type of led
lighting imaginable as leds seem to be my favorite obsession for the
