Spooky Scary Labels

Halloween, or All Hallows’ Evening, dates back to 1745 and is of Christian origin. It’s marks the start of the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, a time for remembering the dead, including saints, and martyrs. It’s evolved into an evening of pranks, parties, sweets and dressing up as ghouls. This year it falls on a Monday so expect all the trick or treating and parties to be on the weekend.

Halloween and labelling don’t really go hand in hand, but it’s worth remembering to label your cables for any fancy lighting, special effects or disco equipment you might use. The same goes for the Christmas season too!

For cable marking and all your other labelling needs, consider one of the following:

LabelStation Helper Download – October Update

It’s been 2 years since I built the first version of the LabelStation Helper. I’ve evolved it quite a lot over that time to finally become a powerful archive of help and information that it is today.

If you already have a previous version installed, open it to trigger the update. You might need to close it and open it again as the auto-update can have a delayed trigger. Another version of the LabelStation Helper has a button on the first screen that reads “Check for Helper Update”, click it. If you have a very early version that doesn’t include the auto-updater, it’s recommended to delete the folder that it installed to (usually “C:\LabelStation” unless you selected otherwise, or click uninstall from the programs menu if you’re using the 2015 version) and run the downloader below.
