    Exclamation April 20th ULE Meeting

    Date and Time: Saturday April 20th 10am to 5pm

    Place: The Edge Community Church
    506 Edwards Rd.
    Greenville, SC 29615 Map

    I have spoke to @Al in Raleigh @mschell and @walter They are willing to coming down from Raleigh, NC to present on pixel related items. We will also have time for show and tell, so if you would like to bring something you are working on or something you think might be intresting for the group to see please bring it. I will probably bring one of my spiral trees, I had a lot of questions about it this year. If there's something you are intrested in as far as pixels items please post them here. This will give Al, Mark and Walter a better understanding of what they need to present. I think most people in this area are in the early stages of pixels.

    Doors will be open around 9:30am We will break for lunch around noon and finsh up around 5pm. If you would like to bring a cooler with drinks or snacks that will be fine, there are no vending machines.

    This meeting is open to anyone and I need everyone who is attending to please make a post so I can get a head count.

    Attendant List:

    Shannon and Dawn Wood
    Walter (walter)
    Al and Deb (Al in Raleigh)
    Dustin (Dustinpelletier) and friend
    Herb (herbaclaus) and wife Shannon

    Deb and I will be there. Other than pixels which everyone wants, here are a few subjects that might be desirable. The first one that comes to mind is commercial and DIY lighting which was popular at other meetings. Second, how to calculate and manage power for your display as most folks are not sure how to do that. Third, how I made my North Poles which would be how I got started with a very complex project, the engineering that I put into them, why I elected to use the control method, the pixel schemes and how they were manufactured, and how the poles were actually constructed. The North Poles were one of the most complicated projects that I have made and were a true challenge to construct. Fourth, just about anything else that you would like to hear.

    Me and Sue Ellen are gonna try to make it. Sue Ellen aint crazy about sitting around all day and heering Mark and Walter and Al yack all day about stuff. She said she would rather stay home and wash her hair and shave her legs. I thank she said wash her hair and shave her legs. She might have said wash her legs and shave her head. She would look pretty dumb with a bald head and all. I hope she dont get em mixed up. But she wouldnt look any different then Bubba that one time he got all lickered up and passed out and we shaved off half his moustache and one eyebrow and half his head. When Bubba woke up the next morning he was all like lets go get some breakfast at IHOP and all. We tryed to talk him out of it but he wanted to go cause he hadnt looked in any mirror anywhere. Now let me tell you them women in IHOP kept there distance from Bubba. I swear if that girl that brought his pancakes coulda used a pole to put his food on the table she woulda. That girl came over and reached way over the back of the table and put it down in front of him and beat feet. Every doggone guy in the place laughed and laughed and old Bubba he had no idea what was going on. That was 2 weekends back and Bubba was all looking like a porkupine last night. All the guys laughed and laughed last night all over again when they saw him. Yall know it might be funny if Sue Ellen did that.

    Man you and Mike says hateful thangs about me and all. Whats up wid dat. You could hurt a fellers feelins saying ugliness like dat. I might boo hoo and water the daisies for days and days then you would be all torn up inside and I would not be cause I was playin possum and you would be boo hooinn and I would be bustin a gut laughin. Then Yalls joke would have backfared on ya and yall would be all mad and spittin far and all but I wouldnt be and all. See what happens when ya say ugliness about a nice feller like me.

    I otta tell Dawn to wash your mouth out with soap. Boy my mamma sure woulda. I'm gonna call my mamma right now then yall will be in big trouble.

    Just kiddin. I wouldnt call my mamma. She would haul off and bust you up side the head with a frozen chicken or somethin then I would be all busted up inside cause yalls head would be bleedin like a stuck pig and all. Then my joke would be all turned around on me and all. That would suck.

    Mark, Walter, and I will have about 2.5 to 3 hours of presentations maybe more. Someone in the group may want to present on something and should say so now. I know show and tell is always fun.

    Folks should come with any questions that they have as a couple, experienced, electrical engineers will be present that should answer about any electrical question they may have. Mark, Walter, and I are versed in LightShowPro, I think Mark is versed in Vixen, and Walter and I are versed in LOR S2 --so software questions can be answered too. I was educated and worked with RF (Radio Frequency) and antennas for many years, so bring any transmitter and antenna questions. Mark and I both have integrated pixels as well as "dumb" RGB lighting into our displays (Walter will when he gets a kitchen pass from Melissa). Between the three of us, we have DIY, LOR, and AL (Animated Lighting), commercial DMX fixtures, E1.31, and DMX in our displays. I would call this an excellent opportunity for the folks in that region to attend and bring questions and let knowledgeable people answer them for free.
