Reader Chris had his laptop laser-etched last night. He figured it'd look good with every level of Super Mario Land on the Game Boy laid out sequentially. He figured correctly.

Last night I laser-etched the top of my Eee PC with the complete level maps of Super Mario Land ( on the Game Boy).

Everything from the familiar layouts of 1-1 to the climactic battle with Tatanga in the clouds at the end of 4-3 is represented in the etching.

This was made possible with the laser cutter at NYC Resistor in Brooklyn ( www.nycresistor.com ), where you can go to get your laptop etched too!

I set the laser in raster mode at 70% speed and 40% power to achieve this look.

So there you go. If you like the look, you know where you can go to get it shamelessly copied.

Funny, I used to have a similar background wallpaper that I made out of the levels.

I also use this logo on my on-off videogame blog entries:

For one of the wierdest Marios ever made, this game sure has a following. I should remix that OST... catchy tunes, too.

Excelent work!
