Really, now is that the best you can do? Mud-slinging? Who said my business failed? I gave 2 excellent sales leads to another lighting professional in Boise when I left. It's purely a numbers game. There are more numbers in Indy therefore, I can produce greater revenue. No problem though bud, I will happily go on taking customers away from you because of my "poor selling performance". As a matter of fact I closed with a client in Brittany Chase sub. in Westfield last night. Wow, right in your own back yard, where were you on that one?

Competition comes from all directions and can't be stopped. The only way to effectively counteract is focus on improving our own businesses opposed to focusing on others. (Joey that is not directed at you--just a general comment on how I think we should all try and forge thru this recession).

Back to the thread--Tom's here to announce the great deals on Malibu and selling them at what I gotta believe is below cost.
No offense taken Alan. We agree 100%. We cannot stop the copy cats therfore we need to continue to make them play catch up. Whether thats with our new 24v Intelli-System, our new H-Force series of Transformers, Tiki Torch Fixtures, Progressivly designed and expanded Centaurus line, new Stainless Steel underwater light, or our highly innovative Fiber Optics system. We continue to be the Innovators, not the Immitators!

Just as I found an exterior rated Astro Intermatic Timer. Only available for a limited time.

What else do you folks use for astronomic timers if any?

Hey Joey,
When is the fiber product going to be available? I have a project I am meeting on today that I am specifying fiber integrated into the hardscape material. Under the steps and wall cap lips with side glow cable.

Joey,
I am just trying to keep you honest. But wouldn't NS be the innovators of the Tiki Torch Fixtures??? I hope you won't hold this comment against me - while I am patiently waiting for your Tiki Torch Fixture to be released.
