What's all about?

This is a site for do-it-yourself Christmas Lighting decorators -- especially those who are interested in computer animated Christmas lighting. But you'll also find information for other hobbies and seasons such as animating props for Halloween, for example. If we're lucky, maybe some good, clean jokes, too! We'll see what transpires but our goal is to have fun, share information and explore the world the DIY way...   BTW, this is also a main source of information on cutting-edge Renard controller development with Renard Plus!   And our chat room is one of the most active you'll find anywhere -- especially in the fall leading up to Christmas!

DIY-U - DIY University
We've built a reference section for common electronic parts and circuits -- how they work, how they're used in DIY lighting -- to take some of the mysticism out of the magic of computer animated Christmas lighting. DIY-U continues to expand with sections on how to home-etch circuit boards, how to design circuit boards, etc. all explanations are in layman's terms. Our hope is that it will encourage "out of the box" thinking and help DIY'ers to create new gizmos and expand the hobby.

What else is here?

The DIGWDF Store where you can buy stuff that you didn't know existed! It's THE place to go for wireless Renard controllers and adapters 'cuz DIGWDF invented wireless blinky-flashy! DIGWDF is Dirknerkle's Inventorium and Generally Worthless Device Factory: "we don't follow the rules -- we make 'em up as we go along!"

Oh yeah, and there's Dirknerkle's Lights, too...  not the best, not the worst, just what it is.  Dirk doesn't spend a lot of time on it -- it's more-or-less just a place to keep "stuff" in a sort of historical sense. He says that "some day, if I ever finish sequencing, I'll bring it up to date with new photos and other info..." Click the photo to go there...
