Congrats, Nick. You obviously do great work.

I think you should host an Axiom GTG when this all gets "done".

Well, Nick, I can honestly say "it depends". I've done crazier things that visit friends in Iowa.

Hey Cam, as long as it is in the warmer months, you can just wheel around to the back and come in the basement door. Besides, that will put you right where all of the action will be anyway.

:-)

Got the first call-back from a drywaller. No idea on price until he comes tomorrow night and bids it out, but it sounds like he is booked until the beginning of 2012. I guess that would give me time to get the insulation and wrap up, plus my clips and hat channel...

Things are getting exciting, I hope you have as good of luck as I did with our choice of drywallers.

Thanks.

I had to open the projector box tonight and at least try it out. There has been talk about convergence issues with some of the RS45s. Mine was pretty darn good. I would say that it was off just barely... maybe 1/10 of a pixel, and that was only noticeable when I was about 2 feet from the image.

I grabbed my wife's crappy laptop and the first DVD I could find (Spiderman)... Not a great first test material being DVD and not blu-ray, but it was good enough for a quick test. Not I need to box it back up...

The following image is with out-of-the-box settings except for focus and zoom. Projected on to a taupe colored wall. Less that ideal on all accounts.... Still looks better than the laptop's display, although in the picture, it isn't representing the laptop correctly. It doesn't have that much of a blue tint to it in real life. Still, pretty nice (uncalibrated) projected image.

That's pretty sweet. I still haven't decided what I'm going to do for a display in the basement.
