Ciao! Welcome to LPF. I'm sure you will fit in well here. Be cautious of lasers, and always wear quality eye protection. Read the stickies, and then anything you can't find with the search function, is OK to ask.
Remember....Bacco, di laser e Venere riducono l'uomo in cenere.
Welcome bro, this is a great site with so much information you will probably miss more than a little sleep trying to take it all in.
One thing you will learn in short order is to hate your custom officials :crackup:
Just make sure to get your shippers to mark your gear as "flashlights" or "components" instead of lasers ^_^
