    My True 30mW has finally died, after being in TEM01 for a few months and now it doesnt work at all.

    WTB: High powered greenie (AUS)

    The ban etc has meant that Australia is lacking some juicy, powerful greenies :( However, I am willing to pay up to $700 AUD for a portable greenie over 250mW. Anyone got any they are willing to sell? I know recently BF sold one to BluRay, which I was going to buy but there wasnt much going on...

    Lightscribe... Burning laser?

    I've been doing some reading lately (see: wikipedia) and have, after I raised thoughts over the matter, discovered lightscribe technology is a 780nm laser. However, I do not know the power of this laser.... Does anyone know about harvesting lightscribe diodes/lasers as a functioning IR laser?
