It was no problem, Jaseth.
Most difficult part was waiting for the pictures to upload, since i have veeery slow upload at my home.
The text written simply poured out of me :D

I can see that Bill got a lot of rep because this post. Both virtual on this forum and respect in real life.

It's even worse if you live in Bosnia like me.
I hope that our poor countries will become better in future.
Yes, my bad...
It is not only Croatia that cannot recieve funds through paypal, it is more or less whole Balkan.

But hey, I would use the money to buy new parts for lasers... so I can always hope for a good trade...
Anybody willing to trade 6x sled for heatsinks?
Glass lenses? Green laser modules?
:D

Define poor.
As in: Not having roof over your head and a whole piece of clothing
or
As in: Not even counting on having some pricey parts for your hobby, even though they are commonly used and suggested?
Or something in between?

BTW... I don't think I called myself poor. For me, poor people are two groups of people:
-matching the 1st description.
-and the ones that have so much money that they don't know what to do with them, selfish SOBs that do not respect others nor the posessions they have.

Don't start. I explained it through couple of posts back didn't I?
And mind the details.... I don't buy lasers, I buy parts to make them. I buy parts to make parts :D Comes cheaper in the end, but just as functional.
The only laser I bought was my year old greenie. It was a nuclear war with my parents...
"Why the hell are you spending 60$ on a toy ?!!?"
How the hell do you answer to :
"What do you need a laser for?"
Amazing how nobody asks that when you show them the laser! :D

I never EVER owned any kind of gaming console. That pretty much describes the situation on my family. I have changed apsolutely no more than 3 cellphones in my life. I would still have the first one if it wasn't stolen. I never wore those 'brand' clothes. My mum NEVER had salary bigger than the minimum in my country: 450$ a month. My dad was uneployed as long as I can remember. Really, no bullshit!

Not to bother you with my life past and present stories and (mis)fortune, I just wanted to let you know why I 'flame' when somebody tells me: Don't build your soldering station, buy it, it will heat up faster.

Or when someone told me : hey get yourself a flexdrive if you are building a pen host. Entire project costed me less than the stupid flexdrive.

I'm kind of connecing ends trying to keep my laser hobby alive,
Poor = n. People with little or no wealth and possessions.

It sounds to me your family has little wealth, and very few possessions. Your family couldn't even afford you a game system, or nice cloths. I'm not putting you down, but it looks like you are/were poor to me.

I believe I wrote that in the effort to explain how helpfull Bill is and all, and why I break when someone says : buy flex.

Now, brand clothes are not always nice clothes!
Anyway, my family did have a lot of twists and turns concerning financial situation, but in the end: I can say we were never short of something essential. We survived, as you can see! As I pointed out, growing up in such enviroment teaches you to appreciate what you have, to be happy that you DO have a cellphone, not being sorry for not having iPhone.
You know what I mean?
