    Do you always complain when someone has taken the time to help others just because there was not enough information to show you item by item so you didn't have to do any work yourself, instructables is here to help people who are willing to find the information and do the work whilst learning new skills it's not hear to do everything for you.

    Hi there, many thanks for the work you put into this instructable I have been thinking of making a sign for the back of my car so I can say thanks when people let me out I was at first just going to make a fixed sign that I could switch on and off but after seeing your instructable I have decided to make one that I can program to show different signs and pictures like pumpkins or Christmas trees etc, if you could put up how you programmed your controller as I have never used one before even if it is just a list of links where people could find the information for themselves.

    again many thanks
    regards Poppy Ann.
