Dave,

I am sorry to here about this tragedy. I have been a follower of this awesome forum for a few years and have just got around to becoming a member (just call me David). The work that you and the others have done have inspired me into becoming a laser hobbyist. For that I am truly grateful.

Although it is nothing to the extent of what has happened to you, many years ago I received a high quality GPS unit as a birthday gift because I was very involved with the outdoors. Several months after I received it, I lost it after it fell out of my pocket at a restaurant booth and was stolen by a passerby.

My emotions probably fell along lines remotely similar to yours when I discovered that it had indeed been stolen. I reluctantly learned to live without it.

Over a year after its disappearance I was contacted by a family in Michigan (I live in Nor Cal) who believed that they had my GPS (because I had registered it online). The thief had sold it to them (he was a college student from a nearby university) on eBay. When they discovered that it was stolen they demanded a refund or they would press charges through PayPal. By the end of the whole ordeal, they got a refund, I got my GPS back, and I gave them a reward as a token of my gratitude.

All in all, the moral of the story Dave, is that crazy things happen (both good and bad), and no matter what all things work out in the end.

Just hang in there Dave. :yh:

Guys, as T_J said, this thread's a little over a year old.

Please, oh please, check the date before posting.

Yeah, don't drag up old threads unnecessarily. I did miss this last year somehow though. I made it up to Dave, when I bought that MXDL 500mw 445nm laser 5 weeks ago. I can easily build any 445nm myself, Labby, Jayrob kits. But there you go, a few greenbacks for my pal Dave. ;-) BTW, I will build a 445nm Jayrob kit for those experienced(known safe user) individuals who want one.

I get your point Jay, but things like this need to be buried. No one wants to reflect back on bad times. As soon as I started reading the first post I felt bad all over again. I'm sure Dave wouldn't feel any better.
