    Movies better than the book

    This is going to be pretty short list because the opposite is the norm, but here it goes: The Godfather Being There Jurassic Park Day of the Jackel King Rat Close, but no cigar: Slaughterhouse Five Hombre Valdez is Coming One Flew Over the ****oo’s Nest(why is this with asterisks??)...

    Favorite electronic Gizmos(Not your phone)

    Some electronics are just an improvement over the past. And I guess a gizmo is very specific and specialized - everybody’s got a phone! Also, I’m not going to suggest any Microsoft or Mac computer tech since I’m no expert, but I do like an iPad. Here are some of my favorite non lighting gizmos I...

    What are your favorite drop ins?

    So many have been made and I’ve only had or tried a handful so I’d like to hear other opinions. Here are my top 3 not in any order: M30-versatility of using any single battery and the optics make it a pretty good thrower. Currently a favorite travel light in a vme head and an aa mdc body...

    Cottonpickers Replacement

    I think the first items I purchased on this forum, and the reason I signed up, were chargers and voltmeters from cottonpickers from England. I still use them, but often use multicell chargers more often these days. Their cheapest item was a little voltmeter with magnets I still use almost daily...

    Corona Science

    I was hoping the latest COVID thread would be more about verifiable information and science but it looks like it’s going to devolve into more chat about media, religion, politics, and freedoms stated in the Constitution. Not that those aren’t important topics, but they are a problem on this...

    Popcorn and movies

Discovered a red popcorn with no hull to speak of(that annoying part that gets stuck in your teeth or in your throat!). Really prefer it over the regular white or yellow stuff. I’m old...

    4/3a nimh still in use?

    Saw some old threads here where people use the 4/3a battery to run aa lights and Malkoff’s old M30 module. At 4000mah you could get some serious run times, but with eneloop pros now at 2500 and lithium aa’s now at 3000, is it even worth trying? An intriguing part is its size at 17650 or 18650...

    Riots

    Things are getting crazy out there! Cabin fever from lock down? The economy? The weather? Hope this thread won’t go racist or too political. I do feel for the cops and firemen that have to clean up this mess. And what’s the use of calling a curfew and the National guard and not enforcing the...

    Lantern/Diffuser for mdc, mdx, and vme

    Trying to minimalize camping gear and got a fenix ods diffuser which has 25mm specs that I thought would fit the mdc heads to use as a tailstanding lantern.Well, after a lot of whittling and sanding it sorta fits two of the four heads and the light looks pretty good. Funny how mdc heads aren’t...
