Well todays rain proved a little scary.
We lost power at one time today.
The X10 controller that has the laptop plugged into its "passthrough" (or at least i thought it was) .. connection didnt energize when the power came back on so the laptop running the show ran down and powered off.. no biggie .. annoying .. but not a deal breaker..
The X10 module for the train decided to turn itself on .. which I discovered when I took the train out to put on the track.. thats just a.. huh .. moment..
When the show started I noticed the DMX North Poles were not on .. again .. power out, reset .. yadda yadda .. BUT .. the DMX controller was offline .. RUT ROE .. I took it all down.. checked it out. The controller is good and the power supply is okay .. so whats tripping the GFI ?? FINALLY figured out it was the LOR box for the yard grid (makes sense.. ) and the DMX controller was on that circuit.. moved the DMX controller and VIOLA !!! we are good ..
Of course .. the yard grid is OFF for tonight .. wet socket somewhere so we'll wait for it to dry out..
Updated the website and added a scrolling marqee across the main page to let folks know that the show is running but the yard grid is OFF ..
So MUCH FUN !!! LOL ...
