    Austin - next HTF meet planning

    Ok the date for the big event will be around the 15th of November or the last week of November. I'm waiting on one of the companies to tell me when he will be in town. I'm going to base it all off that. I got "caught," mentioning it before confirming it, and he called me. I realized that in my...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    I'm all for some Halloween movies to get us ready for the real thing Halloween night. Now personally at somepoint on Halloween I'm out with the kids (ages 3 and 7) who aren't over-aged. After that which will be early, we can watch some classic horror somewhere. I've got the monster legacy...

    Austin Speaker Shoot out :)

    Well it was re-closed. The problem is that the basic information was chart/graph listening experience described by someone involved with the company. Then you get long winded posts defending the person in the "meet thread," which boggles my mind. This is all because two guys in...

    Austin Speaker Shoot out :)

    Nils- I think the problem lies in the fact that the negotiating for "Rocket Canada," was in the works for a good while during the thread. We've discussed this before on the phone, but this is just a good example of why people should question the internet's "reviews," and "information," on a...

    Austin Speaker Shoot out :)

    and Sherwood Newcastle talk.... Which isn't a bad thing. Now if they could get Gary to bring the DIY plasma he made with the new Sherwood Newcastle DVD player that comes out in January I might go to it. I'm shocked that these companies are even involved when they aren't seriously...

    Hey Austin Texas Buddies? Can anyone help me out?

    I witnessed it. I wasn't impressed at all. It looked like every LCD at the show: good and solid. The DLPs all looked good. The best projector was the $40k DILA 1080p. I don't however consider that a real world solution.

    Hey Austin Texas Buddies? Can anyone help me out?

    Nils- Interestingly Infocus claims all new numbers are based off of 65k Kelvin measurements. They said it was new and something nobody did. They said it in my product training course. Doesn't make it true, but its their claim. Its now in writing too.

    Austin - next HTF meet planning

    Hank- Thanks. Yes the new home will be really nice. I'm renovating the third floor into an office,bedroom, masterbath, and creating two bedrooms on the second floor for corporate guests to stay. It doesn't hurt that Ashley is an amazing chef (her last company was a catering company that did 200+...

    Hey Austin Texas Buddies? Can anyone help me out?

    Nils- I can get a Panny I originally signed up for them when Infocus got huffy puffy and said the 5000 would eliminate the need for an LCD based unit. Email me at [email protected] and maybe I can get you a price you'd like. I have no overhead currently (starts in 1 month!) so if thats...

    Austin Movie Nights!

    I got the best deal on the Star Wars set: the THX booth at CEDIA. They made me stamp a board saying I had my card scanned at every THX licensed company at CEDIA and then they gave me the set. Maybe we could all watch it this weekend somewhere?

    Hey Austin Texas Buddies? Can anyone help me out?

    Nils- I'd suggest the Infocus 5000 you can get it locally for $1200. 720p native LCD projector. Plus the dealer would let you return it if you don't like it. If its a temporary unit, the 5000 is the perfect choice. It will cost at least $500 less than the alternatives out there currently. I can...
