I bought two diodes. I am going to take really good care of these, just like they are my two nads.

And just like your two nads, you'll have them removed as soon as they burn out from constant overuse.. :crackup:

Can you link me to the story. Because I get a 404 trying to go to ThePirateBay.org and everything I see on wikipedia still says they got screwed. Can you give me the IP of the site you are connecting to?
It's on the wikipedia several times :p They were found guilty but appealed the verdict meaning nothing has happened to them as of yet. How do I obtain the IP of a site?

This is getting RATHER off topic now lol reply in a PM if you must :p

The IP address of Download music, movies, games, software! The Pirate Bay - The world's most resilient BitTorrent site is 194.71.107.15

The IP address 194.71.107.15 is assigned to

Sweden

I think the site is working just fine for me, I didn't try using it though. I lol'ed at the page title a little though...

I have 2 blue diodes for sale, only $500 each. That is a great investment!

Maybe no one threatened the admin at PL and they just decided to shelve it until they could seek legal council to make sure they where not creating liability for themselves?

even if it does get banned its not like people wont be able to get it. just like the FDA regulation already on >5mw lasers, they can bypassed and not to dificultly. or easily built by one of the many experts here and elsewhere.

Huge faceplam.

ALL the lasers we build are illegal. Yet we all have them. WTF is wrong with you people? As said, PL is ultra conservative. They dont like pointers, period. They see most of the diodes are being used for pointers. Put 2 and 2 together.

Stop this rampant rumors of banning, forums going down, ect. Its all BS. The only way to stop anything would be to discontinue the diode. Do you really they are going to stop making a working technology because people use them in pointers? Yeah right. We will always be able to get the diodes no matter what. Chill the hell out and stop posting BS, and things you dont know what you are talking about. The only people that have any kind of issues is WL. Big deal. We make better, and cheaper pointers anyway. As will O'Like, and the other 100 Chinese dealers. So stop with the worrying already.

PL is a forum of Laser-Show ppl, and have leaved the joy of pointer and moved into the show industry .

And all the googling about 445, PL dont want to be associated to be a forum that mod`s 445 diodes and use them in pointers..
That also will result of ppl joining the forum and ask where to get any 445 to put in theyr pointers !!

ALL pointers more than 4,99mW is illegal (in most country), but damn child-porn is also illegal but still the xxx forum continue to exist every day ...

When that said, I still think this forum should have a WARNING sticky about the danger to high power pointers.
Imagine all the noobs joins this forum, find the idea of how to make a 1W blue pointer and blind them self without any warning.

I wouldn't bet on them announcing that they were contacted, especially if they were told not to.
It's like when a company fires a high level manager or other highly regarded employee, an announcement is made that the individual "left the company to pursue other interests", when in fact it was not the employee's decision at all.
1000% correct Jack, when we let an executive go, they ALWAYS resign themselves; they are never "fired".....that is the way the corporate world works.

This thread is retarded.
TJ is 100% right, everybody needs to calm down. You will be able to get a blue laser, just relax and stop making everything sound so terrible. If there are more visitors here than normal, them seeing threads like this and the wl irresponsible thread make lasers look even worse.
If you can all have patience, i can assure you, china will provide us with everything we have always wanted just like they have been doing.
