[Noisebridge-discuss] Laser Cutter Now!

I said this in the other thread, but it bears repeating. It seriously makes
sense to wait until the instructables contest ends. I know waiting to order
something like this is painful (trust me, I'm as impatient on new toys as
they come, I constantly refresh tracking info pages and often pay for
overnight shipping), but a 1 in 30 chance of winning an $8000 laser cutter
is worth waiting for. I know having two would still be useful, but I'd
rather spend the 2 grand we've raised on accessories or something else.

I'll donate no matter what, but I'm not comfortable with us placing the
order a few days *before* the contest ends.
