    Very cool. :) Looking forward to meeting you Marc. For air, your destination is Charlotte Douglas Intl. It's about 45 minutes from there to Newton - possibly a bit faster if their new freeway is finished. Unless you choose to rent a car, as we get closer, people usually try to arrange some...

    put it next to 532 or 543 and it will look yellow. 568 looked yellow on the dome when used with greens and reds, although if you view it by itself its a yellowish green. Bruce wouldn't sell me any of the medical 4 line kryptons (568,575,520,530) on the first pass. Maybe next trip. Steve

    Yea that not yellow to me. That's a puke green. Looks like 575-590 is the range I want. Let us know steve. I don't have the money right now to find out. I still need to save for a 520nm green. Got my 405/445/462/532/638/660 on hand. Still need 520/589/490

    I used to run into this pricing craziness all the time flying out of Charlotte weekly for many years. Note that on the outbound flight, if you miss a connection that you never intended to take, an airline may cancel your return ticket. US Air was notorious for this policy. They'd also come after...

    As a heads up, buffo is on an assignment for work in Colorado and has spotty internet access at best. He'll be back and able to update the SELEM registrations and such after May 5th. In the interim, he did ask me to mention to SaltyRobot that he might want to check out skiplagged.com. It's a...

    Apparently, 565nm is about the threshold of green to yellow. Lemon yellow? Maybe a lemon that's not quite ripe yet. Here's a good page with some LEDs showing that's not washed out. 565nm is on there. Kinda yellow??? https://www.ledtuning.nl/en/about-colors

    Totally agree with you regarding x-wosee's/BBE's drivers, CDBeam. I have used these almost exclusively for years now. I've had one go faulty out of approximately 100 drivers used over a period of 5 years or so. That's pretty darn good in my opinion. The Flexmods without beam suppression...

    i'd happily pitch in for some storage so you can store the images local. 20 TB or so should fix you up for a few years.

    I agree it looks pwm. Can you project a static dot and look at the signal with a scope. Might see a modulation. That's weird. I use the lovell driver and have not had an issue though I'd prefer the flexmod. Wish Andrew would lease the design so someone can make them.

    Yeah totally ridiculous how flights work now days. Looking for a flight over seas today. From Dulles to CDG $800 with a connection in Charlotte where I live. Fly direct from Charlotte to CDG on the exact same plane $1500. How does that make sense. I will be taking the seat to CDG anyway and...

    Yes, I check all of the airports within a two hour radius because the price differences can be amazing and... also inconsistent. One trip JFK may be the cheapest, then another it's Newark Liberty, then the next BWI and so forth. I would be inclined to cross check: JFK, LaGuardia, Newark...

    Thanks to all that have responded. As i am quite serious about this i talked to a colleague about going, he worked for our NY office a few years ago and knows a bit about the eastcoast as well. He said not to fly to NY but to washington, stay a few days there (as some of you also suggested) then...

    I stopped using Facebook a while ago. I still have my account as I like to log on every now and then to see what kind of shenanigans my niece and nephew are up to but outside of that, I don't post on there or read anyone's comments. With very few exceptions, I have found facebook to be a cesspool...

    If you're not seeing any significant ripple, I doubt you'd notice a HF filter. I think your PSU is probably fine as-is. As you and others have suspected, it sounds like it's coming from the ADAT or USBStreamer. I don't think it's an issue with modulation speed. It looks almost like a PWM signal...

    Another Brit poster here! The Photobucket issue isn't only you Jem, last year they decided there was money to be made and they blocked the majority of forums from displaying pictures hosted on PB unless the user wanted to pay a lot of money (over $100 P.A. if I recall). I moderate another forum...

    Ok, back to Dimmers.... now that I have a few minutes. . As has been said, it is true that there are occasionally wives/girlfriends and such that attend SELEM but, it is also true that unless you're really into lasers, it can be long days for them. We tend to go pretty hard from 10am until 2...

    That's exactly what happened with photobucket which I used to use, not sure what happened but all the photo's disappeared (probably because I didn't use it much). However, that means that all the links to those photo's became invalid. Sure, we're all good :)
