Isn't it funny how some guys think they can just get some quick advice on lighting and then they will have all the info they need to do the job? This kind of post always kills me! It's like asking a doctor: OK man, I think I have cancer. Tell me real quick what I can do to slow it down...............What! This business is an art and a science. Just because you can buy low voltage stuff at Home Cheepo, does not mean that you can, nor should, install LV lighting. Give me a break! You can call me, but my consultation fee will be substantial. I did not spend thousands of dollars on my education and license to just give it away for free.

I'll help, but I can't give a degree in lighting through a few emails. The guys who are just getting into the biz should do a bit more research. Don't ya think?
