What’s wrong with using the modding thread for mod talk?

It’s probably because of the “Add new comment” text
It’s below the latest response posted on the thread.
It can be read as a direction to do that.
Oops.

If only it could be changed to say “Add new comment here if you have something to contribute on this topic”

I would think nothing. ??

“Modding thread for mod talk” seems proper to me. Smile

Well to be honest we are talking aboit the GT carrier and if it maybe be good to design one that can easy be used as 4P or 2S2P or 4S and of course something like that with some parts to protect from wrong insertion of cells could be a nice thing for a Q8s (to stay with Thorfire naming scheme Wink ) in combination with a fet+1+n driver
So talk about series and such is slightly on topic Wink

Yes, just like the humanoids on this side of the planet, they need time for family, rest, and recovery.  Low pay doesn't mean they don't deserve just as much respect.

I didn't read the question as lacking respect (and maybe you didn't either). There are cultural patterns that don't quite match the 9:00 to 5:00, Monday thru Friday work week in different parts of the world. It's a fair question, especially with the way most countries rely on the cheap labor China provides us with. I wouldn't doubt that in busy factories, there is work around the clock.

You're absolutely right.  I apologize to spinynorman and everyone else about the tone of my response.

Sorry kiriba-ru, you must have been posting while I was still typing the first time.

Blinker, SRKs (the name) are still available, but the quality isn’t there IMO. I strongly suspect that they’re clones. Just look for them on ebay. I recently bought one with 7 LEDs and I don’t remember the amount of light OTF. The light works and maybe it has that amount of lumens, I can’t measure it. But the UI is the pits with only med’ & high outputs, probably an obligatory flashing mode to make muggers cringe in fear (hold the button for strobe). I suppose for $20ish I got my moneys worth, but for $20 more the Q8 will be soooooo much better. FWIW, I just compared the clone SRK to a Meteor and no way is the SRK clone producing 15k lumens or whatever was claimed for it. By eye it has significantly less output than the Meteor when shown onto an indoor wall.

Today, if I understand it correctly, SRK pretty much just means the form factor of a given light. Basically what’s called a soda can light.

Yeah TA but we differ for I really like parallel cells, you love series. I would not like my Q8 to NEED four married cells to function, I like 2-3-4 cells use to be a choice and a main attractive thing of SRKs but that is very personal I know Wink

I’m the same as you. I much prefer parallel configuration for a number of reasons and it’s one of the reasons why I wanted the Q8 in the first place. If it was in serial I might have opted-out. I really see no need for cells in this light to be in series when parallel is already producing 6k lumens. That is already plenty for me. Of course, I understand people always wanting more and that is what modding is for.

a regular symptom of flasholism Big Smile

“Flasholism is the most severe form of flashlight use and involves the inability to manage your flashlight use habits. It is also commonly referred to as flashlight use disorder. Flashlight use disorder is organized into three categories: mild, moderate and severe. Each category has various symptoms and can cause harmful side effects. If left untreated, any type of flashlight use can spiral out of control.”

Aww Come On! JasonWW, you had to go and spoil the fun? Crying

EDIT: While we’re off topic already. Have you seen the movie Life of Pi? I didn’t really like the movie in general, but there was one interesting thing that happened. The guy’s name is Picene, pronounced “piss- een” and all the kids at school were teasing him. So, he tried to get them to start calling him Pi instead. He did this by quoting from memory the number pi to the 100th digit in math class! Crown

I wonder how long it would take to heat up a cup of coffee and a slice of pi using the Q8 on Turbo! Wink

Yes
Barry told us that:
The test were good
They use proto 2 springs with longer inner spring
He asked for manual (working on cheat sheet, please all who can contribute do so in Joechina s thread for it it is now or never for the printed and boxed version )
We will see a video of drop test to show stiffness of springs

Oh dang Dale, sounds good, can you get a recipe for me (my chocolate cake is so good, people here love it more then what the profs make but heck that is easy, dairy without fungus the French are not good at, maybe I’ll make a topic for some recipes if I find the time)

I don’t see the need for a printed manual. Everyone who is ordering this light has access to internet (obviously). Just print the link to the first post of this thread on a small piece of paper and be done with it.
If Thorfire wants to produce a manual for their own version, they can do so later on.
Damn, I want the light …. NOW. Big Smile
