More lights. Need more lights!

Well, I had to work up a rough draft design of how I want the display to look. So off to Target I went and bought up about 4000 lights. But after I got home, I realized that I needed more lights, so I went back the day after Christmas and bought up another 3000 or so. Hey, they were only $1 a box. Best estimation is that the final display will have between 7,000-10,000 lights! Almost all of them will be the mini-light type, so the electrical load shouldn't be that bad....I hope.

....IT begins

For those who don't know, I was inspired by all those computer controlled Christmas lights shows all over the Internet and decided to build one of my own next year. I know, the last thing I need is another hobby, but what the heck. I've got 11 months to make it work. So to share my excitement, headaches, ideas, and such, I figured I would start a blog. So sit back, read along, and see if I can pull this thing off.

I'll probably only make one or two posts a month. If you want to be notified, check out or when you pay the monthly rent, think of me.
