    Hello everyone!

    I have been lurking here for awhile and finally decided to register. Great Forum! Everyone is very helpful and the atmosphere is fairly light (pun intended).

    I decided to post here first as my growing obsession with LEDs is putting a nice hole in my wallet. Since the beginning of March, I have purchased a Arc AAA (very impressive for such a small package) a Inova X5 white LEDs (again very nice output with a VERY clean white color...only a tiny hint of blue in the beam) and am expecting a Eternalight X-ray in the mail from Hosfelt any day now. I also picked up a M2...but that is for the other group.

    I am Brian, and I am a flashaholic...

    Aloha

    Mr. Gransee,
    Thank you for the warm welcome! I am really impressed with your ARC AAA! I just need to convince the wife that I *need* ARC LS... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Darell,

    I am originally from Hilo on the island of Hawaii, but moved to Oahu about seven years ago. Sorry, even with your green laser, I couldn't see it here.

    Sorry, missed this question...

    I don't remember specifically, but I think someone on one of the knife forums (BF or KF)had a link here or mentioned this forum. Could be that Joe Talmadge (sorry if I didn't get the spelling right) mentioned it...

    Aloha

    Yup, it is the Hardrock T. Maybe someday I will hit you up for the favor, but right now I am just harassing Darell [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Thanks though.

    be sure to check quickbeam's site- great links page and everything is well laid out,too!
    also see the site he made for me which is currently dormant(ie not improvements) because i cut the towrope a few days ago and now my liferaft is floating aimlessly about the ocean with only sharks to keep me company.to continue the analogy i could say that i have sent morse(with the red ls of course) to this ship of freindship in an attempt to have another rope thrown to me(which i would NOT cut) so i could reunite myself with its crew. however i can only gaze at the ship's lights which are so close yet so far away and sigh the sigh of those who are truly remorseful. *sigh* i beg any ship who hears me to contact the ship i speak of and notify it that i have thrown the knife which cut the rope into the sea and wish to make amends.

    i know ridiculouse way to put it but what do ya expect from the son of an english major? [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] oh yeah, my site is :
    here

    he built it so you know its good [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]


    I'm sorry , Doug. I really am. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    You're new here, so I'm gonna let this slide for now. But once you hang out for a while, you'll soon realize that you're supposed to BLAME BROCK for all your light purchases - not *thank* him for it!

    He's always my go-to guy when my wife catches me opening my latest UPS package from TTS.

    Darell. I think they had what our UK friends call a "Tiff" or close to a "Falling Out" but all is well now.

    I suspect most CPFers are pleased with the incipient reconciliation.

    I enjoy reading what both of you have to say, and Aragorn clearly understands that he is fortunate to have Quickbeam as his mentor.
