    Default Wild Free For All on the LOR Site Tonight !

    Ha ! I was refreshing my LOR sale page like crazy and must have been among the first to select the CTB16PC (assembled kits) for $167 each. The cart showed there were 500 available. Then I grabbed a 16 channel DC card for $90 and the cart showed 100 available.

    Four minutes later I finished paying and checked the site. The CCRs (for $199) were gone. I don't know how many they started with. The CTB16PC units were down to 35 and the DC controllers were down to 4. In a total of about 7 minutes, all three were sold out and gone. I am not sure about the other "stuff" on the site since I was only buying the two .. and I only looked at the CCRs because I was curious ..
    Thanks,

    I got the three more DC cards I wanted. The CCRs showed 100 when I put 2 in my cart, but they were gone by the time I had my CC card entered. Oh well, I'll pick up a couple more of them in the summer. Same with the PC board.

    William, you got the PC board I was trying to order and my CCR !

    lol, OK I understand now, you just had me confused for a moment there. I haven't used one of those "heat over the fire" soldering irons in fifty years, got to retire it when we got electricity! and purchased one of those "5 pound 12 inch long 100 plus watts" Weller sticks

    I was thinking about buying a DC board, but forgot till just a few minutes ago. Glad to hear that the good stuff went quick, since I didn't really need to buy anything right now....hopefully some extra work will show up and I'll be able to have some $ to pay for my pre-order from CDI and the DC boards needed for some more floods, and another project that I'm working on...

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!

    Only 15 mini directors are left as of 1:35pm Sunday.

    I bought the remaining three CTB08 boards.

    An update from LOR...

    UPDATE: Over 400 orders in the first 5 minutes of the sale!
    Sale items sold much faster than we expected leading to disappointment for many. To add to the frustration, the Yahoo Store framework (used by Light-O-Rama) handles inventory control very poorly. The store allows you to add an item to your shopping cart but does not count it sold until you complete your transaction. Thus, even if there is enough inventory to place an item in your shopping cart it may not be available when you checkout.
    There will be unlimited quantities in our summer sale so if you missed things here you will be able to get it this summer.
