Re: Compiled list of Tutorials (Sticky Maybe)

You need to PM c0ldshadow to ask him to sticky it. He doesn't monitor the list in a way to catch this idea from a post.

Peace,

there are still a few links that are missing. I'll work on compiling a list of other DIY threads that are great as well.

I wrote the entire "LaserTerd Basics guide" tutorial and made the video for it, Laserterd just copied it from where I wrote it and pasted it here. It would be nice if I got a little credit for it... ::) Does "Styropyro Basics guide" sound good? ;D ;)

robjdixon, great idea!

I see that cOld 'stickied' it too.

I noticed that the link for my 'Side Button Pocket Pal' is actually linked to my for sale thread. I have a different thread that is the tutorial, showing more detail and step by step for DIY. You may want to edit the link:
http://www.laserpointerforums.com/forums/YaBB.pl?num=1223170239/0

This is great though! :) Hopefully everybody gets there tutorials and 'how to's' added. The list could get long...
