Sorry, the disease is terminal. Acquiring additional wavelengths helps to stave off the more severe effects though, that is the best form of management we can offer. With enough wavelengths you can rotate through them to delay onset of "I MUST BUY ANOTHER LASER" episodes.

Judicial use of fog also helps calm down the more intense fits.

Getting a sponsor helps when you get 'the urge'.
You call hem and they try to take you out of it.
However, it often ends with your sponsor buying instead.

going on the various laser forums will not help.

Whatever you do Don't Attend any LEMs.

I hope to sell one this weekend--(at TEXLEM) proving that I am not hooked.... yeah right..

I haven't had good luck with sponsoring. If someone tells me not to get another laser, I just want it more.

Getting a PJ and laser SW only makes the need for beams worse.

I did manage to part w/ one of my fav JETLASERS. Really could not justify owning two 250/532s. Went to a good guy so I am getting over the loss.

Had to recoop some of my cost of the REKE 500 rgb and the QS FB3.

Yep projectors, and argons are signs your terminal - the projector is always getting upgraded with bigger lasers and faster scanners, and you know your seriously sick when you have 3 phase put in to run a large frame ion :)

yea projectors do rape your wallet.
But for what you get out of them is priceless.
Having a 2.5W projector that does not even need fog to see the colors is nice.
But yeah is it sad im planing on a 20W projector?
I found a way to get 8W of 635nm with a beam spec of around 4.5x4mm with a 1mrad.
So now all i need is 8W of 445nm and 2W of 532nm
Besides those small things then i think i will call my projector done.
Err well maybe after the eye magic scanners.
Then ill be done for sure i promise.
100%
Done
Okay maybe ill build 3 of them but i swear after that im done.
Yea done.
4?
