I built a 3W 445nm laser a few years ago, and the videos kind of rekindled my interest in playing with lasers. I also have better eye protection than they provided, I wouldn't trust this one.

I found this via a YouTube channel that pointed out that these are way more powerful than they're listed as (says 5mW, definitely at least 1W).

Just felt the second earthquake since moving here, USGS says 2.8.

Also we're doing Sundays now so I have no down days until the end of June. It's going to be good times but it's also going to be relentless and exhausting.

Got to spend a few hours today basically drifting crown vics, that was a lot of fun.

Found this album on Spotify and it's pretty good.
