  1. You got it! I'll PM to coordinate picking it up.
  2. A friend gave me this 1,000 piece puzzle of a coral-themed painting for my birthday. I've never been much of a puzzle fan, but I'll admit it was actually a fun way to pass the time during these COVID lockdown days. Now that I've completed the puzzle, I thought I'd donate it (disassembled, ready to put back together) to the first person who responds to this thread. You'll need to pick it up from me in Beaverton, so only respond if you're in the area.
  3. I wonder if this Dremel kit would work? https://www.homedepot.com/p/Dremel-Moto-Saw-6-Amp-Corded-Scroll-Saw-and-Electric-Coping-Saw-for-Plastic-Laminates-and-Metal-MS20-01/203899883
  4. Thank you for the kind words!!! My wife is treating me to a fun birthday weekend getaway at the beach in Bandon, OR. Beautiful scenery, great food, and relaxation. 🙂
  5. Excellent! Yes, I probably should have mentioned to be patient after each step, because the lights can take some time before establishing the connection. Also glad to see all of them reporting Rev 2.2.15 instead of 255.255.255. Is there anything different about #8 since that's the only one showing Rev 2.1.15?
  6. There should either be a button that says RF Update, or maybe it’s in the Action dropdown on the WXM configuration screen. I don’t have the WXM anymore so I can’t look to verify. RF Update is different than the Software Update in the dropdown which updates the FMM’s core firmware. What I’m describing is a separate update just for the RF chipset.
  7. And just to confirm...you keep the Radion power adapters powered on 100% of the time, correct? One other thing to try is forcing an RF Update on the FMM’s chipset, since that’s the component that determines which model of Radion is connected and displays the color channels accordingly.
  8. Sorry I didn’t see your question until just now. I was driving to Southern Oregon yesterday. The difference between Update and Reset is to Update the Radion firmware, or Reset them to factory defaults. You don’t want to Reset. I’d recommend first deleting one of the problem Radions from the list to Outputs (click the gear icon to display the Delete column). Then unplug the Radion power cord and reconnect it. Last, click Attach on the WXM.
  9. You are awesome for doing this for the reefing community! I wish my tank was in good condition to participate, but I'm at the beginning of a reboot, so it will be a few months until it will be ready for new corals. But I truly appreciate what you are doing for our fellow reefers. May your karma return future rewards!!!
  10. Please be careful if using a gas or propane powered generator. The exhaust is toxic and must be ventilated properly to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. It's sad to see these local news reports of people making tragic mistakes: https://www.oregonlive.com/clackamascounty/2021/02/4-die-from-carbon-monoxide-poisoning-in-clackamas-county-amid-winter-storm.html
  11. I honestly feel horrible for all the reefers in the Pacific NW area as well as Texas and other states that are dealing with prolonged power outages. So many people are dealing with the stress and disappointment of losing fish and corals due to power failures. It's one of those rare situations that many people don't plan for, but has such devastating consequences. Hopefully these reefs will survive, but if not, hopefully people will put plans in place for the next big storms. Wishing the best of luck to all of you.
  12. They could re-brand it as the Tesla ReefWall and charge twice the price...
  13. That's excellent news! Good luck for a full recovery.
