Thanks Greg,
I picked up one off eBay for $230 bit more than you paid.
Batteries are a bit of a pain but oh well. Bunning have 30 packs for about $20.

Couldn't agree with you more!

Watching Clone Wars in your own personal HT just really puts the cherry on the sundae of life! Or in your case, I guess it would be the shrimps on the barbie of life

Hey there Domz. We don't call them shrimp. That is an American term hardly akin to the mighty seafood that adorns our bbqs. Our prawns are more like small lobsters. And our beer actually gets you drunk. That's just how we roll down under

Ah yes, the old joke: How is making love in a canoe and American beer similar?

I'll give you the prawn thing, but Australian beer is nothing to brag about . . .

You obviously didn't drink enough Nick. Our beer actually tastes great. But the more I drink the better it is. You need to find the good stuff.. not Fosters. I built my Danleys over pizza and fat yak beer. That is all I have to say.

It's not always about you Peter. If you want to be precise.....you did most the work (including that one little mishap), Peter the Greek turned up in his Mardi Gras outfit and I copped a money shot of glue straight in the eye. If we really want honesty here....

Oh I was just giving you a hard time. I was in Australia in 2003, and LOVED the XXXX and Toohey's and such. Went back last year, with a far more sophisticated palate, I'd changed a lot.

I did enjoy the Australian craft beer, when I could find it.

Hey Nick. All good. Great to hear you tried some of the micro breweries. I remember my time in the states years ago when I was actually getting drunk on your lite beers. In Australia, lite beers have little to no alcohol in them as opposed to the lower calorie beers over there. A few painful mornings before I finally asked the barmaid what the hell was going on! Glad you had a good time here recently.

The snow was brilliant ... we must have had at least 60cm fall during the week we were there.

The beer was most enjoyable ... as was the champagne, red wine, schnapps and last but certainly not least, the flaming black sambuca !!!

Lego MilFals are cool, so are models, and pictures, and even die casts, but I bet tommy would REALLY get a kick out of a Milfal that was WAYYY bigger than HE was and 1 he could actually GO IN! Well, ok, through. LOL



or cool bedroom wall, with big explosions - kaploooshhhhh


Just a thought.

Yuppers. That exactly how it goes. Just tell me what you want and how big you want it, and I'll make it and mail it to you. Any image, any size. Here's a good example The original image for this mural was only 7.5cm. The customer wanted it to be 1.4 X 1 meters!

Like they (used to) say, The customer is always right - well I still say it.... LOL

so ask, and you shall receive

ah la peanut butter sandwiches... *POOF* <--bonus points for understanding this reference



When properly mounted on a wall, no lines will be visible. Right now it's just laying on the floor, so it doesn't look all that good. I'm really just showing off the quality vs size here tho. This is amazing for starting out with just a 7.5 cm pic. At least I think so LOL

Hi mate. Is there a rough price per square metre for the nurals? Rough price is fine.

Wow, how did I miss this?! You shoulda pm'd me. I'm very very sorry, but I had no idea you asked. Anyway, the only way I can give a rough estimate on cost is after I have a size and image to work with. Since every single mural is unique and custom made, there are no 'base rates' because every job is different. If you have some ideas you want to kick around, we can skype anytime you like and see what we can come up with. PM me directly if your interested, it'll save a TON of time.

Well, I am ashamed to say that it has been close to 18 months since my last post on this thread. Life has just been so busy, with work, travel, continuing renovation projects (which are just about finished now), boy growing up, trying to maintain a social life and all the other excuses I have not been in my room. After being in long term discussions with VIP-3D in the States, I have finally received my 3D-Evolver, so that I can set up a dual projector, passive 3D system in my theater room. Many thanks to Jonathan from VIP, who honored his word in supplying me one of these units after the single projector option just did not work in my set up. Took him to run a whole new production run of these modules, so I am very thankful that he was able to help me out.

I now have the module, 10 pairs of Spectra glasses and the filters ready to set up. It took a while but I also found a second Mitsubishi HC-6800 projector some time ago, which means that I have all of the necessary hardware to get the system installed. All the wiring has been run into the room (CAT5), power, HDMI and RS232 control cables for the projectors. Purchased a glass shelf on Amazon so will need to remove some of the wall fabric lining to install some timbers for the shelf. Figured that if I did not document it here, it may never happen, the way things have been.

So, hopefully I will have some pictures and progress over the coming couple of weeks. The next month looks like a very busy one with work but I am hoping that I can steal a few half days to get into the room and get it finally finished. That means subs tuned, all connections made, equipment rack framed in and all electrical work sorted.

Stay tuned. some photos to come.

Hi Greg,

Well that post was pretty much "excuse, excuse, excuse ... blah blah blah".

Seriously ... I'm glad to hear that all is OK ... nothing wrong with being busy !

Looking forward to a 3D night some time. Maybe we can even get Peter down from the wilds of the North !

Cheers,

Hey Peter, how are you mate. Well here's another cracking excuse. Set aside half a day today to start work in the theater and due to a power outage for 12 hours, I locked myself out of the house as the fingerprint lock had no battery back up. Mmmm. Finally shot the young fella through the doggie door and opened up at midday. But no power until 8.30pm. On the up side.....i treated myself to a new toy.....

Isn't it always the way. Purchased a spare bulb for my projector. Tested it as only a 90 day warranty on globes. Worked fine. 4 months later...get the second projector installed and the lamp is kaput. Anyway. Shelf is up and second projector installed. Just need to make data connections for RS232 control. Now for the wait for the new bulb.

I'm a newbie...never knew you could use two projectors for 3d...out of curiosity, what's the benefit? Being able to keep the resolution and refresh rates from dipping?

Hi there NutDonNet. I am not an expert but there are a few advantages. Obviously, you get genuine 1080p resolution on the screen all of the time. Also, your image brightness is very high. Whilst I will lose a little with filters and glasses, there will be a genuine 3k lumens on the screen. Great for filling a 145 inch screen. Being that both images are on the screen at the same time and passive glasses are used...no flicker. That sorts out a lot of the headache problems people typically suffer with active 3d.
