Hey all. I am new to lasers, but not new to tearin stuff apart and hacking electronics. I've been building computers myself since 1993, and now work as a network admin. I've always liked lasers since my best friend bought a laser pointer back when they were ~$150, and I thought I would never be able to afford one. Now after watching all the metacafe videos, i NEED a burning laser, and should have mine done this week. But i hope to learn more here, and possibly build some even cooler stuff.
