    Gee, nothing from the LOR folks for door prizes?

    Has anyone contacted the guy doing the VDRIVE and VFLOOD for a demo unit?

    Do you think RJ will show up with an AETHER?

    LOR is sending a door prize. I don't know what it is.

    I've been in contact with William about the VFlood and no word yet.

    Here's a test of my new Christmas Trolley. I hope to have it finished by the convention. where you can see it in person. It won't be LOR controlled unless someone has a spare dc board and ell they don't need and they're crazy enough to let me have them!

    Looks Good Larry. I have an ELL that you can "borrow" for the convention. Sorry on the DC board, have 4 already in use, and 4 more on order. Doubt they will arrive by then those.

    Thanks for the offer John. The short term solution is to use an external LOR controled solenoid to start and stop everything.

    Very, very nice!!!

    I don't think my 2 LOR DC boards will show up in time either. They are the new quick connect style, and weren't supposed to be available till late August anyway.

    Now I do have some DMX based DC boards that are working right now that might be available.

    I'm considering doing a trolley or train sometime in the future, and so will be very interested in looking at your track, etc...

    Larry you could borrow one of Al's servodogs and mount the stick to it, I'm sure Al wouldnt mind.
    And on the 8th day, God created Christmas lights.

    I've attached a picture of my stick wielding assistant. He really is annoying always asking me what I'm going to do tonight. I keep telling him "Same thing we do every night Pinky... work on Christmas."
