slight electrical horror 

today is apparently too wet for my outdoor lights.. gfci trip, and if I manually reset it they glow dimly 馃槖

bad idea 

kinda makes me want to do outdoor lighting that's all fiber optic instead of electrical

bad idea 

@scanlime maybe this isn't actually a bad idea

bad idea 

@alexisvl it's tempting to explore.. prolly way too heavy on materials and energy though. low voltage LEDs seem practical but it'd all have to be potted effectively

bad idea 

@scanlime heh yeah low voltage lighting is probs a much better solution i guess

bad idea 

@alexisvl maybe telcos had it right and 48V or so is a good level.. high enough to get a lot of oomph out of a little copper but low on tingle

bad idea 

@scanlime yeah 48V is a great voltage for that sort of thing. spicy like a nice hot sauce, not a straight carolina reaper
