The Code Factory projector upgrade

The Code Factory projector upgrade

Hey Everyone,

Several of you have probably met me before, and may know that I'm also the
organizer of the Ottawa Android developer group.  We also run our events 
at the code factory, along with several other groups.  If any of you have 
been there for any meetups, you may know that the current projector is a 
little bit... lack luster.

I was thinking it would be awesome if we could get as many groups together
to help contribute towards getting a new one for the space.  I was 
thinking of a 1080p projector which would cost about 1300.00 before taxes.
If we were to all pitch in, I'm sure we could get enough money to get a 
much needed upgrade.

Thoughts?

PS
Apologies for the copy pasta from other UG mailing lists, just wanted to 
get the word out.

Agree that the projector needs some work.

I sent two "really bright, but vga resolution" ones to Crown Assets a few 
months ago. With my Scots background, I sometimes wonder if being slightly
off of the bleeding edge is a better place to be. It's certainly less 
expensive!

Here's a link to Crown Assets;

Search for "projector" in the "what has sold" to see what has sold.  I 
know that there's some junk on there, but one that is "much better" and, 
because it is not leading edge, might not walk out the door as easily, 
might come up in the next month or two.

Comments?

I've created a chip-in page that people can contribute to if they would like
to help out.
