Im torn. I got a Star Wars AT-ST at Wal-mart earlier this year and now they have this huge 2' tall AT-AT in stock I really want. Toys R Us has a really nice Tie Interceptor too. I could either get both of these OR get a Nintendo DSi XL. They are the same price. I'm thinking the toys are cool but just sit around gathering dust. The DSi XL I could use to play some Dragon Quest and stuff on. I just wish they came in some other colors than what they do. I want a black one..not blue,burgundy, or brown.

Don't sell yourself short.  With an accomplishment such as summa cum laude I'm sure you could learn to make a mean latte as well.   icon_twisted

I have nothing on my Christmas list.  It feels selfish to want any gifts as I am fortunate enough to have a supportive, hard-working wife who makes it possible for me to be back in school full-time, we'll need to continue to build savings to try to weather four years of pharmacy school as I'll have little time to work (if any), and as I have next to zero free time with my course load I'd rather not receive any games or similar time-sinks as the spring semester will leave even less time for fun with organic chemistry, anatomy/physiology, volunteer work, and hopefully a part-time job as a pharm tech.  

I guess for Christmas I just want to survive.   SCIENCE!

1) I don't buy anything off that list, other people do. slywink
2) Some day Felicia Day will see that I love her enough to spend money on her DVDs and come be my friend, or at least I enjoy what she's doing enough to pay something for it. It's like donating for freeware or Gaming Trend. Sure it's available for free, but without people willing to support it, it may not stay that way.

I'd prefer it in the 5-LED Baseball Cap Light form factor, but I notice that you're not carrying the white light one in stock anymore.  My preference would be as an add-on rather than having to buy a whole new cap for it, but I'll consider it.

Alas, the clip-on lights have disappeared. The wholesaler who imports them has been out for months. I'd love to get them back. I've never seen a red version, though. Perhaps I ought to spend some time looking for a new supplier.

I searched high and low and far and wide for these. Sadly, it does not have a red-only mode. You can use just green, green + blue, green + blue + red, and all colors flashing, but if you want red-only you'll probably have to shell out $20 for the Pilots Cap.

Green lights are made for night vision. So are red. I don't know what adding blue into the mix does. Does this product meet your needs?

(BTW the white-only version is back in stock, too. I hope my new supplier keeps up better than my old one did. I sold hundreds before they ran out permanently.

After further research, it appears that the red color may not be as important as the intensity.  With that one, being able to switch between 1-3-5 lights might just work.
