Both of us are big on Christmas
. Mary likes the shopping and interior decorating, and Greg is big on outside Christmas displays. In 2001
, Greg started experimenting with animated displays that are controlled by a computer. That year he built two parallel port controls
that could control 8 circuits each. These were simple to build and control, but didn't provide much growth potential.
, Greg started in January trying to find a design that would allow him to control many more circuits without purchasing expensive Digital I/O Boards. In February, he found Hill Robertson's design for a 320 circuit device
that could be controlled by a parallel port. He spent much of the year building our own version. These days, we leverage Xlights
, and Pixels controlled by E1.31
