Spectrographic analysis of a Power Light Systems GmbH # RH-630-550WD Red LED.

{[i]computer alarm/beeping noises[/i]} {[i]female computer voice[/i]} 0000 hours. Warning!!! Regeneration cycle incomplete!!! ;)

A spectrograph analysis of an LED that I was posting to a couple of other BBSs a short while ago.
The "0000 hours. Warning..." text is from Star Trek: The Next Generation. ;)
And the "0000 hours" is to be replaced with the time in 24-hour format just before hitting the "Post" button.

Here's what's in my clipboard buffer at this moment:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Well, what did you expect I'd be listening to?

If you guessed Kraftwerk "Autobahn" ("Wir fahren fahren fahren auf der Autobahn"), then YAY!!! YOU GOT ANOTHER ONE CORRECT!!!


At 11:00am PST, I'd normally be watching Viva Piñata, but it isn't on this week.
According to the TV schedule, it isn't going to be on next week either.

Later, I may listen to Kraftwerk "Radio-Activity".

I was most recently updating a web page (on my website about LEDs and products made with them) about a digital clock, and had this in my clipboard buffer:

That translates into this:

I currently have this in my clipboard buffer:
Code: [Select]
[SIZE=6][COLOR=Red][url=http://ledmuseum.home.att.net/inf1.htm][B]CMG Infinity ([i]Newer-style red[/i])[/B][/URL][/COLOR][/SIZE]

{[i]computer alarm/beeping noises[/i]} {[i]female computer voice[/i]} 0000 hours. Warning!!! Regeneration cycle incomplete!!! ;)

This translates into:

================================================================================
CMG Infinity (Newer-style red)





{computer alarm/beeping noises} {female computer voice} 0000 hours. Warning!!! Regeneration cycle incomplete!!! ;)
================================================================================

It is a spectrographic analysis of the red LED in a CMG Infinity LED flashlight; a photograph of its beam at ~12 inches is shown first, then the actual spectrum of that LED.
It is in my clipboard buffer because I post it to two other BBSs.

This is what's in my clipboard buffer as of this moment (minus the strings of "=" signs):

==============================================================================
Well, what did you expect I'd be listening to?
If you guessed Kraftwerk "The Man Machine" then YAY!!! YOU GOT IT CORRECT AGAIN!!!

I'll probably listen to Kraftwerk "Computer World" and Kraftwerk "Trans-Europe Express" a bit later on.

Same as yesterday morning...looks like I'm on another Kraftwerk jag like I was on a few days ago. ;)
I might listen to some Raven a bit later...note that I said "MIGHT" here...the last time I said that I might listen to Raven, I never did get around to it.
I MIGHT also listen to some songs from various games & demos for the C=64 computer via SIDPLAY.EXE on my pee-cee.
O, and before I forget...I had brief access to some of my CDs again while inventorying a box, and snagged Kraftwerk "Radio-Activity". :)

This was in my clipboard buffer this morning; it's a post I made to my weblog (or "blog" if you prefer):

Update 12-11-08
The move date has now been "set in stone" if you will, to 12-30-08.

In my clipboard buffer this morning is (minus the strings of "=" signs):
{This is in my clipboard because it is posted on several other BBSs (or "fora" {the correct pluralisation of "forum"}) every morning}

==============================================================================
Well, what did you expect I'd be listening to?
If you guessed Kraftwerk "Radio-Activity" then go eat some transistors, diodes, capacitors (or "capacitators" if you prefer), resistors, etc.; then go beat the living tweedle out of a ukelele (like SpongeBob SquarePants does on "The Camping Episode")...O WAIT!!! THAT'S A REALLY ROTTEN IDEA!!!

Kraftwerk "Computer World".

I'll probably listen to Kraftwerk "The Man Machine" later this morning.
I just purchased Kraftwerk "Electric Cafe" - I had it before, but it has become lost...so I snagged another. :)
I may also listen to Aldo Nova "Subject: Aldo Nova", specifically for the song "Monkey On Your Back".
That song is about getting addicted to heroin; however I do not use heroin or other "needle" drugs. :cornfused:

In my clipboard buffer today - again, minus the strings of "=" signs at the top & bottom.
This is in my clipboard because I post to "What are you listening to?" threads on several other BBSs (or "fora" {the correct pluralisation of "forum"})

==============================================================================
Well, what did you expect I'd be listening to?
If you guessed Aldo Nova "Aldo Nova" then go get an electric guitar, turn it into a really, super duper powerful red laser, and hose down a metal warehouse door with it...or just snort Ajax (without all of those little blue things) until something really bad happens to your nose...O WAIT!!! THAT'S A REALLY TERRIBLE IDEA!!!

Dokken "Tooth and Nail"


I might listen to Anthrax "We've Come for You All" later on.
I may also listen to "The Viva Piñata Song" (it's sung to the tune of "Escape - The Piña Colata Song") on the internet as well.

Here are the lyrics (words) to "The Viva Piñata Song":
===================================================
I was bored of my gaming, I'd been playing too long

From Project Gotham to Halo, I'd even tired of Pong

But then I picked up a new game, one my friends never knew

I put a post on the forums to try to find player two:


"If you like Viva Piñata, but you feel all ashamed

Your friends don't understand you, because you like a kids game

If you play co-op games at midnight, when nobody can see

I've got room on my Friends List, send an invite to me."

I started tending my garden, the grass had started to sprout

But I kept it all hidden, so my Halo clan would not find out

I logged into the forums, to see if someone came by

And in a personal message, I got a single reply:

"Yes I like Viva Piñata, and I feel quite ashamed

All my friends think it's stupid, and they call me rude names

I'm up for Viva games at midnight, when nobody can see

Hit me up for some co-op, your secret is safe with me."


So I turned on my X-Box, and got a new friend request

But when I heard who had sent it, I would have never have guessed

It was my clanmate from Halo, and I said, "Oh, it's you"

Then we laughed for a moment, and I said "I never knew…

"That you liked Viva Piñata, but nobody could know

That you're proud of your garden and its Horstachios

Just make yourself a second Gamertag to ensure privacy

But if you want those Achievements, come play co-op with me

"If you like Viva Piñata, but you feel all ashamed

Your friends don't understand you, because you like a kids game

If you play co-op games at midnight, when nobody can see

I've got room on my Friends List, send an invite to me."

The photograph is of the beam spot directed against a white paper target 12" away, the graphic below that is a spectrographic analysis of the laser, the "{computer alarm/beeping noises} {female computer voice} 0000 hours..." text is from Star Trek Voyager, and the "0000 hours" part is replaced with the actual time in 24-hour format.
