    Default Newbie!!!!!!

    Hi everyone,

    I've been around for a while just kind of watching. I wanted to say hi to everyone. In reading all the posts I am amazed at all the other laser enthusiasts out there. WOW...this is great. For a while I was afraid I was the only "laser geek" out therejavascript:emoticon(':lol:')
    Laughing Any members who sell "laser stuff" on Ebay .... we probably have met, as I have spent way to much ... In fact, the mailman hates me but I think the UPS guy likes me. He said something about job security!!!??? Anyway I am looking forward learning and I hope I can add something valuable to the forum.

    Thank You

    You know, it seems that lots of users here are interested in getting together to swap ideas, demo their lasers, and in general just "geek out" with other laser enthusiasts... (I know I am!)

    So why not just do it? Pick a weekend that works for everyone and a centrally located site. (That's going to be the hard part, since I'm certain there are more people on the west coast, or even overseas, than there are in my neck of the woods here in SC...)

    Whadya think? It is doable?

    If we all met "central point" using your location in the mix i would have to rent a ship somewhere in the middle of the atlantic ocean.

    That would rock though... wouldnt have to worry about pissing off any neighbors.

    I know how we can get the money for a Country trip !

    First off all, we DONT meet in US (becouse laser is a common thing there)

    But we all meet in Norway
    Then you bring ALL your lasers togheter, and we create a great lasershow.
    And ppl have to pay like 100dollar to enter

    that will be better than Pink-Floyd

    Liteglow;

    Yeah, but then we've got to cough up the $1400 for airfare to get to Norway! (And I don't know what an airline would do with a large ion laser as luggage!)

    Heck, it's going to be hard enough to get people together here in the US... It's a long drive from California to anywhere on the East coast!

    I know that Astroguy is in Florida, and I think Spec is in Georga, so the three of us are pretty close. (I'm in the middle in South Carolina.) There used to be a guy on alt.lasers (usnet) that lived in North Carolina somewhere, but I haven't heard from him in a while.

    Still, it would be great to try and get something together... (Maybe more wishfull thinking than reality though.)
