And clearly the videos online serve as poor source material because I have so far been unable to build anything successful using them.

Don't promise your boss that you will write a story about something that you have absolutely no knowledge about. Or, maybe that's your "thing", what you do.??
Either way, all the info is available here at the forums, with a few searches and if you are too lazy to do your own research, we ain't gonna' do it for you, bud.
Trevor--to be quote honest...the last thing we need is the mention in a big name publication like Wired, that our community is rude and unhelpful.
From what I can make out, this community prides itself on civility of discourse and responsible conduct. But here, within just a few posts people were outright calling this guy a liar and inadequate. We can do better...
Sorry but I have no experience building lasers. Overclocking is another matter.
