Rumors about my death have been greatly exaggerated.
Been quiet, so here's a quick update to some of my New Year's resolutions...
1. Close to pulling the trigger on a Panasonic AE3000. In fact, I went ahead and order the new Chief interface bracket for my existing Chief mount. Basically, this the plate that attaches to the projector and then allows me to use the existing Chief mount. It's the meat part of the sandwich. This will give me the low profile mount still and hopefully won't have to monkey with the projector box at all. I tried to think ahead for upgrades when I built it, but what might get me is the thickness of the projector. Will probably order the projector next week.
2. Closing on my cabin on March 2. Will post some pictures of the place later, but there are a few options for a home theater there, at least of some sort. I'll have a shiney new (well... a new lamp at least) AE900 to use there, so I may be to come up with some sort of solution. I don't have a good room in the basement there, two weird rooms to work with. More later.
