Projector for GNOME Events Box
The GTK+ Hackfest has its first positive result already: The GNOME Events Box got a brand new DLP projector. Decision was made to buy one, since renting a projector for a week costs about 200 EUR, wereas you get entry level projectors for only 600 EUR. The Foundation's brand new projector was about 580,99 EUR - including shipment (projector with bag and cables, back side).
Incredible how much technology advanced since I had a projector into my own hands for the last time: It's "just" a 2400 Lumen projector, still it produces a clear and cripsy picture under day light conditions. Awesome.
I also like the fact, that Acer was that kind, to ship not only a German power cable, but also some british and a third one I cannot identify. It looks like an Euro plug with a third pin:
Update: Seems the third cable has a Swiss plug.
