    Default Thinking there is an addiction going on here

    yeah, it is safe to say that you have a SERIOUS addiction!

    However, as your sponsor, i feel it is imperative for me to say the following:

    Probably like me he was well off until the laser addiction.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    I've had 2 years and have not got quite as much stuff as you, but close. It's good to be single! Lasers are cheaper than being married and cheaper than therapy!! If I hadn't got married (and divorced) 4 times I could have a 66w Arctos....or two.

    A 1.2w 640? Dammit! I just got a 600mw Kvant 640. Marc, why didn't you tell me there would be a competition for the biggest 640?

    @ Marc..... yee haa!! Beginning of October to now has been a long cold winter. Time to get this sucker put together!

    @ Aaron.... Yep. That's the one I'm talking about!

    @Steve-O.... no, not rich exactly. I keep getting paid every week but my bank account hasn't changed in months. Humm... don't know how that could be. I've just found screaming good deals on things. I won't buy it unless it's a steal for the price but seriously... I'm about done. Part of my reason for doing this is to determine what's going up for sale because I've found some of it I haven't used or it's not as cool in person as it was on the manufacturers video. Plus, sometimes less is more. I recently did a gig with a lot on the list and it was TOO busy with all the light movement. I'm fortunate in that I haven't had much in the way of expenses for awhile and have been able to afford to play. :0)

    @Phredy... Believe it or not, I kinda WANT a relationship to get my mind and time off this silly laser stuff!
