It's a nice strip that chronicles the adventures of one Julius Chancer in his quest for the elusive Rainbow Orchid.
Written in the European 'Ligne Claire, Bande Desinee' style similar to Herge, Bob de Moor etc.
Looking forward to getting my hands on it come December.
Take a look at the strip online at http://www.garenewing.co.uk/rainboworchid/webcomic/stripIndex.php
While it's not as detailed as the novel, it's a great effort and really nice to see Eoin's rendition of the characters.
Now that Harry Potter is complete, Artemis Fowl is a nice distraction to look forward to!!
Bring on book No. 6, Mr. Colfer

Next on the list is back lit house numbers. Not your standard sized house numbers, but at least a 18 inches in height, black anodized aluminium mounted on a Plexiglas substrate that will contain a multitude of tricolored led's, essentially enabling me to obtain the complete visible spectrum. So I can have Orange for Halloween, Red for Canada Day, Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness, Red/Green/Blue for Christmas etc. etc.
After agonizing over how I was to achieve the color control, I found this great instructable from Dan that seems to suit my purpose to a T. Here's the link and look forward to us wearing our heart on our porch.
Measuring Output Voltage across the spare wires. Unsure what 1 Volt can actually do!
Wires stripped and ready
