    Cool sign. Didn’t you have short circuits with all these component legs going over each other ?

    P.S. : the commenting system is still broken, if I post a comment after a few days without posting, it gets rejected (“the text entered is wrong”), and I am logged out. It seems the site remembers me longer than the commenting system.

    Great project, good work.

    This will make the perfect gift for a friend who is an enormous Twins fan for next season (and I will make one for my favorite minor league team, St. Paul Saints).

    Is there a way to get a bit closer look at the physical circuit for the blinking portion? I have interpreted a few circuit diagrams, but it is always nice to have a picture of a complete product to compare with in the end.

    Cheers and great job.

    I was looking at the circuit schematic and was curious what relay was used? I have some 555’s that I can use for a similar circuit, but was curious what relay was used in your sign?
