<h3>Unpacking, repair, and tuning</h3>
<p>Many LEDs got knocked loose during transit, so Gene fixed them as I 
polished the software. The artist and I sat and went through the various 
visualizations, tuning the colors and speed and frequencies, until all were

 <p>Then we stayed overnight in Durham, which had lots of neat architecture 
 and places to walk.</p>

<p>Once we were satisfied the device was working well, we set about 
attaching it to the column. Locals Dean Cook and Simon Bennett were 
indispensible help. </p>
 <p>First we needed many holes for sttachment and for power/control wires:</p>

 <p>Then we attached modules, one at a time, from the top down. Each module 
 was supported to prevent sagging by a fishing line attached through a hole 
 in the top. Each module was tested upon installation.</p>

 <p>All but one and then all modules installed!</p>
