Hi Tom,

If you are at Noisebridge, you can find me or Robert to teach you how to
use it. Robert will be using the lasercutter almost all the time, so you'll
find him easily. Also Miloh will be at Noisebridge in Wednesday night,
teaching people how to use laser cutter and 3D printer.

As to vector cutting, I use xps, which can be done with any windows 7
machine: you just print any format with a xps virtual printer, that's it.
xps is supported by the laser cutter, and according to Miloh, you can also
use pdf format.
