*Do not laser your body.
*Wear safety goggles if you are running the laser with the cover open, for some reason. But don't do this.
** You don't need safety goggles when using the laser normally.

==== HowTo: Load your image for laser cutting ====
To send your gcode (cut) or png (etch-and-cut) image to the linux machine that runs the laser:
# scp your image to your account on shell.hacklab.to. This puts your image somewhere the laser can get at it.
#*On Windows, the best program for this is WinSCP. You can get it here: http://winscp.net/eng/index.php)
#*On linux, run this (eg) from the command line: <code>scp firstname.lastname@example.org :thisismyimage.png</code>
# At the laser machine, open a terminal.
# Navigate to the graster directory, and run graster on the image. Graster will generate both a cut job and an etch job from the image.
