    Default PhotonLexicon Forum Awards 2007

    Review of 2007: PhotonLexicon
    A year that had the euphoria of laser meets and
    the "spec"tre of not having another one for while , the high of new lasers
    arriving , the lows of them going Kaput ! Vent your spleen or show your
    clappy happyiness by giving an award ( A POST ) to what made your
    blood boil or your your most memeorable moment , theres load of awards
    to pick from .. Go on Give a Few ( not them all though ! )
    Lets all take a moment to think what great time we all had on here last year and dedicate some abuse to those you love

    Cool

    Thanks for the kudo's guys.

    Ok - my picks:

    Most Consistently Funny Poster: Gotta go with Karl on this one.
    Best Smileys: Aaron (Allthatwhichis). Hands down!
    Best Avatar: Rob (Stanwax)
    Worst Avatar: LaserMan532. Sorry man, but that mask gives me the creeps!
    Most Memorable laser of the year: The 9 foot long, 1 ft wide Kr/Ar head that Clandestiny brought to the original FLEM in January 2007. Rated for 17.5 watts of whitelight. 480 volt 3 phase AC at 90 amps per leg and 9.5 GPM water cooling required to run. Pity we couldn't fire it though.
    Member with kit who you're most green with envy of: David Zurcher (DZ) and his solid state RGB rig that is a friggin' work of art.
    Brainiest bast*rd of the year: Tie between Bill Benner and YaddaTrance.
    Longest post:
    Ok - I'll nominate myself for this one, only because I believe I'm the only person to have ever run up against the 15,000 character limit for posts not just once, but TWICE! Oh, and I've also run into the 10,000 character limit for PM's a few times too. Still searching for a cure for my persistent verbal diarrhea. (No luck so far!)
    Forum Highlight of 2007: For me, it's got to be SELEM 2007. It was an incredible event.
    Worst Username: Great Cornholio. 'nuff said.
    Most Generous: This is a tough one, because there are so many contenders! I gotta go with Bill Benner on this one, though Steve Roberts and George Mack are both close seconds.
    Best New Member: Hmm... How about Laser Ben.

    I'd do some more, but I've got to be on a plane in a few hours, so I need to get my packing done! Maybe when I return...

    Adam
