Re: Question about making a long duty cycle laser

Yes, I agree.

Edit: I am being too trigger happy with as much trolling as we have had lately. It's a downward spiral, however I was certain someone would balance it back before the day ended as it wasn't really justified. My bones feel it with this guy and perhaps it's just troll influence causing that, this post ought to make him (not meaning to point at this guy) happy to see the negative influence to the forum, my bad.
