After meadering aimlessly for much of the evening, I finally fought with the projector. I ordered the service manual (and now have it, pdf) but it didn't come last night. So after trying thing after thing to make it flip and reverse the image -- I said f*ck it, and flipped it onto its soft plastic underbelly, and propped it up with chemistry and social science textbooks. The image was somewhat skewed, and the CRTs did not quite line up -- but holy crap. GT3 looks unbelievable projected on a wall... maybe 11'x8'? taking up the whole wall. Played a bit too much starfighter and SSX. I'm sure it tweeked at least one of the people who drove by. My projector room is the front room covered in windows, on the corner of the house... on the corner of the street. Big racecars. I won't be going back.
Oh, and you probably won't hear from me for a week or so. No big loss. Off to Edmonton.
