Late last night my amazing wife returned from delivering Christmas goodies to the neighbors. She held out the five fingers on her right hand and asked, “Do you know what this is?”
Instinctively, I flinched, expecting a heart-stopping, up-close-and-personal demonstration of how cold her hands actually were. This has happened before.
“That’s how many of the neighbors complained that you don’t have any lights up this year.”
Through an ironic and frustrating turn of events, I’d been too busy to hang or program anything for Christmas 2010.
Fortunately, today’s schedule was totally open. I found enough inventory in the workshop (an E16 ethernet bridge + 16 strings) to assemble a nifty little triangle tree. It measures 12′ tall and 11′ wide at the base.
After letting it run for a few hours, I checked the control statistics (the E16 contains an internal webserver which allows for easy field configuration and feedback) and was pleased to see that one point one million Art-Net packets had been successfully received and processed for each of the E16’s four universes.

(Note that YouTube was supposed to swap out the regular audio for a bouncing happy Christmas track. But I don’t think it’s working for all playback locations. Do you hear music or just road noise?)
