Lol, you found me out.

The routines to convert old tokens was updated.

In vixen 3 they use a 4 dotted number like
The 19 indicates it was the 19th build of version 3.0.6

We chose to not include build numbers.

So how do you know? Only if I make an announcement and by looking at the date stamp. Both methods are valid, I just don't want you to see the 5-10 builds of each version *smile*

Ver 25 is getting ready to be released. I need to finish the automatic backup button.
Ver 25 will again change all the xml tags in your file.

I suspected because it worked better. :)
I went back and confirmed by looking at the file's save date.  ;)

I had just come inside after gluing down a few more strips onto plywood.

Turns out the biggest reason for my silicone sleeve and silicone caulk failure to hold was DIRT.

I'm now washing and drying the painted surface before gluing and it is holding beautifully. So straight and even. 72x54, here I come!

So nice and straight now. The silicone waterproofing is just so hard to bond with anything, but the Clear Silicone caulk tube does work well when both surfaces are clean. I'm putting a "dab" under each IC chip. This leaves the cuttable spots unglued just in case I have to cut out a bad section.

Note that the strips alternate. You are only seeing 3 channels to be connected to the Falcon 16 (or an SSC V3 or some other 12vdc pixel controller). They start at the far end (72 pixels/24 ICs), then I'll jumper to another 72 going the other way. Then seal up all the holes with the same caulk.
