Laser Etching.....so....much fun...
One thing I found myself doing -way- more of than was healthy at Foo Camp was laser etching things. I lost count of the number of laptops I etched, but I think I passed 30 sometime around 2am saturday morning. All kinds of logos, too, including my little friend there, who I enscribed on my OQO, my notepad and in the corner of my Thinkpad. Why only in the corner? Because the majority of the T43p was taken over by a really large, very beautiful and subtle image of a Cylon Raider.
So very cool! Anyhow, it was a blast to do and now, as I was telling my wife, I have a skill to fall back on after we all decide that computers were nothing more than a passing fad. Instructables did an article about the tool, which can be found on the Make site.
