    Austin Movie Nights!

    The next Austin meet.

    I am tenative, but hopeful. I would like to hit Ultimate Electronics and the proj shootout, but will have to bail after that. It is the anniversary (1st) weekend, so I need to ensure progress on the HT front by taking care of the SO. :)

    Austin DIY HT Projects

    Chad, I have not used them yet, but ordered a bunch from PartsExpress.com. They are 3/8" diameter, small, but seem pretty powerful. They can easily be counter sunk for a clean line.
