I heard it in a PM from Len/Hakzaw... When he said $50 i just kinda read the rest of the message and nodded, dismissing it, like "Well I don't think he missed a zero but he's gotta be wrong about that" - figuring maybe he meant good 405's for $50 or something, and mistyped 445.
Then I got to thinking about it during the day... "wait... maybe -- oh hell, I'll bite." and looked at the threads and saw *that pic* of the projector with its array shining.
Then I started scrambling and PMing EF and MarioMaster to get in on the buy, and get a host buy set up with Jayrob.
First DIY diode build's gonna be a 445nm. How 'bout that.
second thoughs---remembering posts here with stuff like---' Where can I get a laser that cuts flesh?' and 'Mine does not feel very hot on my arm, but it gets pretty hot when I shine it on my lips' and ' where can I get laser googles for around 10$?' and so many other moronic questions and statements....
I had a bad gut feeling. This is not going to be 'all good'--IMHO
