    Very cool. I love the fact that MACNA is at Disney the same weekend that the new Star Wars area opens. I'll be hitting that Friday before heading to MACNA in the afternoon.

    I will be a tester for new products for them both personally and in the store when it opens.

    LOTS of exciting stuff coming from them.

    Unfortunately, I won't have any time for Disney. I finally get to Disney and won't get to see any of it. LOL!

    I have been to Orlando on business several times. Add one more time to the list I guess.

    I will be there. Doubt I will have time. Being a vendor, we will have obligations almost constantly every day.

    I would love to go though. Maybe we can squeeze something in?

    Nope, my lips are sealed.

    I started on the new lighting setup yesterday. Basically, I pre programmed the lights to the settings I want to start with and got the new aluminum to mount them to inside the floating canopy.

    I will take down the canopy this Saturday, paint it and put it back up Sunday. I am trying to figure out how to temporarily light the tank because the aluminum rim prevents the mounts from working. I may just let it go a day without.

    Yeah, since all the houses were built in the 60s and the infrastructure hasn't really changed much, I am sure that would happen too. ;Wideyed

    Now, the real fun will be when I open the store and have about 30-50 of them running at once. :D
