I also finally got accepted into the Brookline yahoo group, so I got to explore that and figure out all the new suggestions I can make at the next meeting. ;-)
The DVD burner has arrived, but I have not yet hooked it up, altho I even have a connector to hook it up to the amp (this is tricky, because the remaining available input is a balanced input, so I had to buy a connector, but it arrived as well).
I watched Pirates 2: Dead Men's Chest. That's some body count, is most of what I have to say. Plus, omgwtf vagina dentata ate Captain Jack. I'm sure this is not The End of Captain Jack, but what a ridiculous image that the world did not need, but then, what does one expect from Bruckheimer. Fortunately, I did not buy it; I got it on netflix.
The projector screen arrived and looks lovely. Needs no case, because when closed, it clicks shut and has a nice integral handle. The SafCord (don't recall if I mentioned that -- nice, lightweight stuff to reduce the trip hazards inherent in power cords connected to presentation/recording equipment) arrived. The projector arrived. The flash card reader and thumb drive arrived. One of these days, I'll get around to trying everything out.
Unfortunately, I seem to have misplaced my extension cord. Hmmm.
