    Thomas,

    You can obtain the locking nut from the Broadband store. Called a "F Nut" if I'm not mistaken. You would probably also need the "F wrench" to install and uninstall. Ask about it also.


    William,

    It's looking great!

    This might be a good time for you to some hands-on experience with the hardware. I can also invite Dariusz and we can go through bringing up the controllers, assigning the controller numbers, and general hardware-oriented portions of the architecture ..
    Denny - at the last TASL gettogether at Starbuck's, you mentioned having a class on the software sometime in June? Still willing? I'm willing to bring my laptop with S2 on it; maybe another one (if I can get it back from the person I loaned it to), my LOR USB dongle, a controller or two or three, some lighted candy canes, and whatever else you think might be appropriate. I've got some hands-on, but those who don't have any yet may want to get some.

    Ah yes ! We need to get that on the calendar. Also we can have multiple meetings for software. I would recommend for the first meeting we work on the architecture, file management, preparing songs for LOR, etc. Basic functions. We could use a controller to show the new guys how to assign the controller numbers. I will open another post to discuss setting a date and a location.
    Thanks,

    Here's one unit mounted on a pole.



    It's an "All-in-one" setup.

    -img_0688.jpg-img_0689.jpgThis is the mounting I use in the garage roof rafters for one of my controllers. Just a good old plastic storage container with lid.

    Yeah, something has changed. I'm sure Thomas used the "Attachment" wizard.

    I just made a post ( #26) with a pic in this thread,

    http://www.christmascarolina.com/for...ss-Boxes/page2

    used the attachment wizard, and ended up the same as Thomas. Also post # 22 changed, instaed of the thumbs, now has just a img link.

    No biggie, just wanted to confirm that I had the same results as Thomas.

    Thomas, don't forget I'm old also.

    What's the odds of both of us having the same brain fart the same day?

    I noticed.

    Don't know what William did to make my picture come up so big in the first post of the image test thread, but have noticed recently that all the pictures Willam posted were big instead of the thumbnails.

    Wonder if he will share his secret?

    John and Thomas -

    Try logging out, clearing your cache, and logging back in. That worked for me. Something got bollixed up with the cookie for this site for me; I had to re-establish it.
