If you plan on being here for so long, what's the problem with just doing your own research for a few hours? People here won't just spoon feed you :P

I think it's obnoxious when people put capitalized terms like "READ" in a thread subject. People will read what they want to read. No commands are necessary. We understand what these hyperlink thingies are. It's no secret that we'll find readable text (usually) on the threads that they connect us to

If you JUST want to know what the simplest laser to start with is, then I guess we're not spoonfeeding you at all. Surely, once given the advice as to the easiest starting point, you'll go do your own research on how to actually achieve this, yes?

Ok, here goes.

Fine, I'll draw up a simple list for ya. The rest, however, is for you to figure out.

- Laser diode (which one? o.O)
- Aixiz module
- DDL driver
- Host
- Li-ion batteries

Those are the basic makeups of a laser.

You don't need to stand out though for someone to click on it. It makes your thread seem a lot more nooby, and *less* people are likely to read it if they see that. He was just giving some advice.

Anyway, I gave you a list. Go start researching!

People are trying to help you, Laserbully.

It is YOU who must learn the forum, NOT the forum that must do what you want.

How did we get so lucky lately?

Maybe it is an influx from the release of the Krypton

@ Laserbully: Read more. Learn more. Argue less

A subtle troll is still a troll.

If you are calling me a troll you are extremely wrong... i made my own thread only posting in my own thread regarding my post.. so this is not trolling... what you are doing is trolling by post nonsense .. nothing regarding my post what so ever... please stop posting on my thread if it has nothing to do with the first post i made... thank you have a nice day

You're right.

I don't know how I could have been so mistaken about how this forum worked.

We probably just need a bit of time away from each other to cool down

How about three days?
