    WARNING: To those with Nvidia GPU’s

    👀 I like to use a program called "Double Driver" to quickly make backups of all my drivers, and it makes it easy to back & restore exactly what drivers you want. veeam also makes nice free software to backup volumes / folders to other attached disks / network shares. Might not be ideal for...

    Tool AAA host. Maybe?

    Ill have to look at this again on my break :) I have a copper Tool AAA that I swapped the driver and led HS. Its defiantly a novelty hand warmer; so I would probably only keep it max 50mW, but they are fun looking. (I fixed the pictures in the 1st post. My server i was renting to host the pics...

    Various ads removed for LPF Supporting Members.

    Are the popmyads something that will stay? I was getting loads of new tab popups while browsing the site, and then when clicking the login button another popup would trigger covering up the login form. Some of the pop-up tabs were the about:config trying to do something funky with the PDF...

    Looking for a host

    I have that one too. Mine is just labeled "cree q5" which is generic. One of my favorites. Some are very similar, but is hard to find one exactly the same.

    dark layout - setup in-progress

    Thank you, I had this reaction when the page loaded. Just like when someone turns the lights on at work. Hope it all goes smooth for you. :cool:

    What a cheap laser can do, Beware!

    Even though there was some bad parenting; Im sure that the label on that laser probably said "5mW". I've bought plenty of those "5mW" pens. Some would make the dark spots on my skin tingle, and pop balloons. When I was younger I remember people starring into those 1mW cat toy lasers that would...

    DTR 20mm Module Heatsinking Capability

    If it helps; here is my 20mm DTR next to a SL tappered copper heatsink. I would say the SL has just a little bit more chunk to it; especially with a full copper 12mm module installed. (I got the 20mm wired w/ driver at the time because I was being lazy)

    Oclaro 700 AMC7135

    Very nice. I hope I can get a lathe someday. I put a BE on my oclaro to try and tame it. Maybe someday Ill get better custom host for it so it doesn't look so weird. Its around 450mW with the BE. :)

    Affordable long-throw flashlight?

    This might sound dumb, but I would send a quad copter with a light and camcorder near them.

    Affordable long-throw flashlight?

    For super cheap I would maybe look at building your own in a empty Convoy-C8 host they are like $7. I like like the fact that the mcpcb can be screwed down to host. People say theirs goes from 200-400 meters depending on how small & bright your LED is. The best super bright LED would probably...
