    Idea: photodiode power meter?

    Ok so here's what my brain just made up just now: Most dvd cans have the third pin for the PD which is used to send some kind of feedback to the APC circuit to regulate the power the diode is getting.(right? :-/) So I thought , wouldn't it be possible to hook this photodiode up to your circuit...

    Faster than the speed of light?

    Here's something that just came to me out of nowhere. :P If you're on a fast moving vehicle and you shine your laser in front of it, would the photons shooting from your laser travel a little bit faster than the normal speed of light? :-/
