Gotcha!
I wanna be a Cop in a few years. Im working this promotion at the grocery store right now, pays good and in a few months I should get my final raise and be able to drop the repo thing and that will allow me to get into nightschool for my GED then start taking the steps towards being a Police Officer, im hoping I can stay on track and by the time im 26 actually be a cop. Im really wanting to stick out my current job for another 2&1/2 years so I vest my pension... I know by the time I retire im gonna need it since nothing else will be around for me but savings and pensions.

I worked at Safeway as a checker when I was 18 icon_wink.gif , then manager at Hollywood Video, Petsmart while I went to school....then got hired at a hospital and transferred to a bigger department. Keep at it, hard to get into but pays off...I tested for almost 2 years before getting hired with a good agency. I turn 25 in February so it can def. be done.

Don't hate because they beat other companies to a large number of patents that pertain to LED control. It's part of the game/industry. Why don't you come up with another better control method and patent it, and then sue them if they try to use it.

I'm not talking about the control methods - I'm talking about how they patented the mixing of red, green and blue LEDs to create more colors (which, how it ended up being a patent in the first place, I have no idea), and then sued companies who used the technique. Which is a load of crap.
