Like the sound of the athletic director's board.
I have a video of me doing a half-time interview at a televised OU basketball game last year. I used the wrong form of the word alum in the interview. Embarrassing. I'll try and find it and post a link here.

I say it's about time for you to start blocking and drowning. I decided to block before most other things so that I can get precision measurements for what Bitspower pieces I need. I've also been tinkering with some lighting, but haven't come to any conclusions yet except that I'm very glad I chose to play with flicker LEDs.

#3 was definitely the OCN favorite. However, the beautiful thing about doing an extension....is if I change my mind, I can make changes to the pattern in about 5 minutes. As long as the new pattern requires the same # of white and crimson pieces. You'll need to post some video of those flickering LED's so we can see them in action.

Because of double wired pins, twisted wires, and other PSU manufacturer imposed nightmares on the sleeving community....
......a 24pin is THE cleanest way to have a straight run of cables that keeps the pattern. I'm still doing a custom back end to it also....but using an extension also provides a layer of abstraction with PSU changes. I can swap out a PSU for a different manufacturer's PSU... and still have my extensions work just fine and look the exact same. I'm actually thinking about making extensions for the 8pin connections also.
