    Jupiter * 445 * Venus

    When I was outside tonight, I saw Jupiter and Venus right next to each other up in the sky. I thought it would make a pretty cool picture if I fired a laser up toward them. I think it turned out pretty good. I might have to start doing more of this sort of thing.

It's been a fun project that I've been working on for quite a while now, so it's pretty neat to start seeing it actually start to come together. I finally bit the...

    What the Heck is This? (12 Pin Diode)

    I had a burner in an old computer and took it apart hoping that I would find something inside that was half-way recognizable. Oh boy, was I wrong. I have no idea what this is. The sled is from a Philips DVD/RW 2000 Series. I believe it is a DVD/CDRW combo drive, meaning I don't think this...

    I got my 30mW 532nm pointer from Lazerer today! :wave: I thought I'd write up a quick review on while it's still new in my hand. I've heard nothing but good things about Lazerer so far, so I figured I'd give them a shot. This is my first review, so please be gentle with me. The Price The...
