    Fred's block party - "hosted" by Mokuti

    Intro One of my other hobbies is sports & tactical cutlery. This short pictorial-essay what-have-you is geared towards the cutlery crowd, with the assumption that their knowledge of LED-tech is on average, on par with mine. I doubt that will be the case here at LPF, where most have been enjoying...

    $7/gallon for "regular" (89Oct)!!!

    Argh... driving around here (EU) is becoming an ultra-luxury!!! I pulled my 5.0L Mustang GT up, grabbed the "Regular Unleaded" nozzle and began to fill up the car. I hadn't bothered to look at the prices (it's not like I can do anything about it anyways...). Pumping stops, I look up at the...

    JayGuin 445nm "Razor Lazor" Review

    Preface When I first joined LPF 18mths ago, I would never have imagined reaching 1,000 posts, but here I am, posting it... :eek: How fitting it should coincide with the latest of several major milestones in the field of hobby lasing, the 445nm diode! Not only do such technical milestones...

    Which DealExtreme 18650s are best???

    I'm getting my frist 18650 host and I wanted to order some batteries for it over at DX and there are no less than... SIX variants... :wtf: Ok, so I realize there are protected and non-protected version of all the traditional batteries we use here on LPF but there are variants among those...

    Anything but iPhone (thoughts on Desire, Galaxy S)

    Hi y'all doin' tonight :D (or this morning, depending on your location...) My HTC Kaiser (WinMobile6) is on its last leg and I was planning to buy HTC's current WM6.5 phone. But what do you know, my local T-Mobile provider (Austria) does not have and nor are they planning to introduce any new...

    What's in your camera bag?

    I've been noticing quite a few impressive laser pics here on LPF lately and thought it would be interesting to find out what some of you are sporting in your camera bags. You don't need to have a whole bag-full of gear to take a decent photo of your lazor so please do post your gear, even if...

    Mini Jay Green (& the search for the holy gr... module)

    Preface Like many of you here, I went gung-ho after seeing a green LP first-hand. At the time, I was pretty much bored with the trillions of <1mW red LPs so I hadn’t really thought about lasers in a long time. Of course, that’s before I discovered LPF and the fact that there were DIYers churning...

    Batteries: there's good, bad & ugly?

    Hi2all, I've come across two cases now of batteries acting "strangely"... :wtf: Now there are batteries that charge in a timely manner, hold their charge for a reasonable time when idle, power our lazors adaquately and have a reasonable shelf life of 1~2yrs. Then there's the bad apple that...

    odd 532nm module behavior

    Hi2all, I have three "modestly-powered" 532nm lasers. The first one (80mW constant) is a perfectly round, low-divergence (1.2mrad) IR-filtered beam emanating from a high-quality LP (module type & characteristics unknown). The second one (150-130mW) is a "classic" O-Like module (Mar. '09) which...

    LikeitBright's 650nm "Minichrome" Review

    Hi2all It's been a while since my last review and to be honest, it should have been published way back when :o ...but there was a minor complication (documented below)... Intro It's been a little over a year since I joined LPF and I'm thrilled to say that I've learned quite a lot and met a...

    Acer 1810TZ 3G Edition - a Traveller Review

    Hi2all, some of you may know me here thx to my DIY Laser reviews, but like many of you, lasers are just one my hobbies and PCs (and computing in general) is another of my passions! I recently decided to get myself a "Netbook" (seeing as my 2.0Kg Notebook was feeling a bit too big, rofl). So...

    532nm module Driver: Is this unit "ok"...?

    Hi2all, I'm afraid I know little about drivers. I do know that some manage to draw power form various batteries always delivering the same amount of current to the LD and others seem to vary wildly based on the input voltage (such as my DX Dilda & O-Like 532nm module). My recent O-Like 532nm...

    O-Like 120~150mW 532nm Module: "Mini" Review

    Preface After writing my recent IgorT 6X review, I realized I've almost reached my typing quota for the month (and your review-reading quotas too, :p)... so I'm going to try the "less is more" approach for this review ;) Intro A while back I decided to get myself JayRob's "Kryton Groovy...

    IgorT 170~200mW 6X 405nm Review

    Intro IgorT hardly needs any introduction to most of you, nor does his work over the past 18 months here at LPF. However, not everyone has had the pleasure of making his acquaintance, particularly in the past four months where he has been on a, shall we say… sabbatical. This review will reveal...

    "Active Users" list is bogus...

    Hey C0ld, I noticed that the "Active Users" list contains all users that have not formally logged off. That is to say, if I'm surfing the site on my Notebook and then shut down the Notebook (or close the browser) I will still appear "active" although I'm no longer actually surfing the site...

    FrothyChimp & the state of affairs

    Hi2all, I still consider myself a noob here and will do so for some time to come. I have and am trying to provide the community with some form of useful input with my reviews and occasional suggestions and/or carefully thought-out opinions, but there's no doubt I'm still wet behind the ears...

    Change Hyperlink "Style", please!

    Hey C0ld, I already mentioned this in the "Bugs" thread but I'm still waiting for what should be a 2min fix... :confused: It's IMPOSSIBLE to FIND hyperlinks in the current skilltest & dark shadow skins because it's white on white... :( Please, mymaaan, thx :cool:

    Kenom Kenometer LPM w/thermal sensor - Review

    Intro Today I'll be reviewing the one and only ***Ken-O-Meter*** from the community's one and only Kenom ("It's pronounced Ken-om not KEEEEEnom or keynom" ;)) The Kenometer, as it's name implies, is a Laser Power Meter (LPM). Kenom needs no introduction. Without him and the other local DIY...
