Re: You know when you're addicted to lasers when..

EEEK!! I'm guilty of quite a few of those.

I went to a greeting card shop after work today and asked if they had
any black balloons.

Last night I spent messing with my RGY scanner, as one of the red modules
isn't working. Found out it was a bad connection between the controller
and the TTL input on the power supply for that module. All fixed now, and
saved myself £40 :D So will buy either another bluray sled or two more
20x dvd writers.

Copied from my thread:

You just might be know you are a laser enthusiast if...

(Some of these aren't by me.)

19. You make up the poem "Roses are red, violets are blue, so are my lasers, too!" [guilty]
"Roses are red, violets are blue, so are my lasers, violet too!"

25. You look at any color and can determine its wavelength.
... and bandwidth (see gamut)

37. In class, you pay more attention to the professor's laser pointer than the actual lecture. [guilty]
I think that this just might be the most objective single fact that makes one an addict.

I figured you did that but I wonder how many actually pay attention to the numbers. I know some people just look at the numbers when dialing without actually thinking about they represent.

I can write down stuff that someone is saying without paying any attention to it.It happened a lot in class.I would open my notebook later and couldn't remember that I wrote that, it was completely automatic at times. :p

I don't seem to recall 866nm being any common wavelength....But then again,my clock is showing a longwave ultraviolet wavelength, so I'm pretty sleepy ;D

That's defiantly a cause of a true laser addition. :)

When you go on Youtube looking for "dead terrorist" and end up
spending an hour afterwards looking at laser videos. ;)

If you want the link to the really funny Youtube dead terrorist link....

There you go and enjoy......
