ok, a few notes first about white 5 watt leds, here are the voltages, and qualities.

U (average)87.4 to 113.6 lumens
V (good)113.6 to 147.7 lumens
W (jackpot!)147.7 to 192.0 lumens
X (you wish!)192.0 to 249.6 lumens

Tint (These remain the same for the 5W)
*It should be noted that these won't show as much discoloration as the 1 Watt LS's do.
1 (quite green)
2 (greensish)
3 (ok)
4 (bluesish)
5 (purplish)

R is 5.43v to 5.91v
S is 5.91v to 6.39v
T is 6.39v to 6.87v
U is 6.87v to 7.35v
V is 7.35v to 7.83v
W is 7.83v to 8.31v

I have talked to several people about cooking projects that I have done. Some of them looked so tasty that I took a picture.

My birthday was last week, nothing much happened on that day, but I did make barbecue salmon that on Sunday with some friends. By mid afternoon it looked like it was going to be a great day, but by the time we got the grill out the sun had disappeared, and it had started to rain. We didn't let that deter us though. We just piled on more coals, and used nearly a pint of lighter fluid to really tell those coals that we meant business. Shortly the coals were hot and the salmon was being smoked. mmmm it was good

This is a review that someone made of a 5 watt bike light that he created. I am planning on making a similar light as soon as my led arrives.

I`m surprised they use a Mercury Vapor lamp though. A decent Ceramic Metal Halide would be more efficient and give a more pleasing light colour, but hey- they must have their reasons.

Ever seen the floating balloon lights that use a similar idea? Large helium-filled white globes with powerful halide lamps inside, just float`em over where you want light (tethered of course) and presto - instant daylight!

32,000 lux tower and the Teathered lights.

Motorbike plus me in a helmet = broken helmet and road rash yeti within a year. so... I have been looking into riding leathers. There is a company named dainese who makes some really cool ones called the dainese shuttle for mountain bikes. I was thinking of getting it for mountain biking, and all sorts of other stuff I don't to because it hurts to fall so hard. (I fall harder because I fall further, being 6 foot 6.) They also have a nice jacket called the madison, but no one seem s to stock it.

A friend of a friend spilled his bike twice at 70+mph wearing dainese jacket and pants, and walked away from it with no broken bones, bruises, or road rash, just a small tear in his jacket. And I read another review of someone spilling his bike at 80+ with no harm done. which is encouraging.
