hm, well, if it's still crashing even though all that was done, I'd suspect either bad hardware or hardware drivers. check into that when you can.

For what it's worth, my home computer plays the AVI file fine, while my work computer doesn't since I'm missing the required codec for Media Player.

Nice set of lights!  Good luck finding replacement lamps!

Not at all. Lionsdenantiques.com sells a pack of 25 or so at a good price. I tend to order them in the multicolor option.

Regarding twinkle lights in general, I found this quote from the Christmas Eve 1973 edition of Time Magazine, and I hope it will be an encouragement to always manufacture twinkle lights (C-7's + C-9's):
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS: A 6-ft. Christmas tree lit by 75 standard bulbs burning four hours a day would use 290 of power a week, a relatively harmless indulgence.  A tree decorated with 75 twinkle lights would expend 170 of electricity a week.
