Ask Slashdot: Really Short Time Wasters?
I've had success using Sharon Butlers book 'Conquering Carpal Tunnel Syndrome' and using ergonomically correct tools (split keyboard, upright mouse) .
Also, a daily session of Intu-Flow works wonders. There's a completely sufficient 'level 1' video series on youtube. Scott Sonnon sometimes comes across as a little....I dunno .... spooky... esoteric...whatever, but this stuff is simple, fun and works.

If the target were actually a mortar shell, you don't need to vaporize the entire shell and its contents, you merely need to get the laser to access the gooey center of the high-explosive tootsie-pop.
