    This is waaay off-topic, but reading /. comments seems almost all ppl use non-IE browsers.

    Is all of Slashdot that uninformed, whiny, and self-righteous? I hope not... I'm not so sure it's a good thing to brag that the light will "burn a hole through a CD case" either.

    I guess the boxed red text posted above wasn't read?
    There's more to a light than its output.

    I agree. They don't know what they're missing. There are quite a few amazing builders and modders who hang out here.

    Just as most CPF members enjoy a good quality flashlight, many slashdot members enjoy a good quality browser. IE is the equivalent of a DX light.

    Most of the ones who bother to post are. However now and again you'll find some real gems of information and knowledge among the slashdot posts.
    We all brag about something usually, Personally, the little boy inside me still gets a giggle from seeing stuff burnt (responsibly).
    1) Neutral white, it's the new black. Heck, it's not even "new" anymore.
    2) User Interface... KISS.
    3) Proprietary cells and battery packs - Just say NO!

    Yes a CPF member did do this project. It's been a fun diversion from higher voltage stuff.
    details here.

    .. and I did fix the problem with Firefox. I was the fault of an eBay table I had pasted in that page.

    They can be. Some time ago there was a Slashdot post about exploding lithium batteries in laptops, and I linked to a thread here (one of Newbie's, IIRC) where CPF'ers were already well ahead of the curve, with lots of analysis of experiments and other experiences with venting cells.

    While my "Anonymous Coward" post got modded "informative" at least, the subsequent comments mainly focussed on the heretofore unknown existence of "flashlight geeks" and where exactly they would rank in the hierarchy of geekdom. Some declared that they/we were too geeky even for Slashdot
