    Ok, I will give a hint.

    If I reply or post too many more times, the error will go away.

    Maybe you're objecting to your rank? Because it lists you as just "interested", with a 5 mw HeNe instead of whatever laser you acutally own and you feel that you are way, way more than just "interested"?

    You do realize that the rank is just an arbitrary label that is applied to you based on the number of posts, right? And that it will keep changing (periodically) until you hit 100 posts, when you top out with the omega label? No one really looks at them anyway...

    On the other hand, if that isn't it then I don't have a clue what you're talking about either...

    I think it has something to do with the hene's wavelength. Isn't it 632.8 instead of 638.2?
    Remember the future?, That'd today, as you imagined it yesterday.

    Oh Snap!

    You're right... I totally missed the wavelength typo.

    OK Spec, you've been called to the mat. Better edit the rankings!

    Heh, Im a moron somtimes. Set that up 1.5 years ago... wow... The rank system was originally non existant then I had some "pointer-jockeys" complain that they werent there.

    I could try to worm my way out of this one by saying "technically speaking, there is a 638.2nM line"

    Anywho, will be fixed momentarially.
