    Re: " PP.O's Who are they really? " 20 Questions with ThorSPL ...

    Nice read, Thor.

    What were you listening to when you blew out the windshields?

    head-on car accident (we were doing 70, they were doing 80)… somehow my parents and I lived…
    Pretty amazing.

    Good story about Tommy Kramer ;D.

    We were listening to a 37 hertz tone... that was the frequency that vehicle was loudest at; we were doing testing for a competition that weekend...

    Are you done with your PhD?
    I think I vaguely recall you saying it is a done deal.
    If so, congrats.
    If not, get off your ass and get it done.
    I heard you will be offering free counseling services to all the lunatics on pp.o.
    I'm done with my classwork; I'm on internship so that's the last piece of the puzzle (that and my dissertation, which IS coming along)....

    I have a feeling I WILL be doing that with some of our expectations here....
    Good luck finishing the process!
    2 months down, 10 to go!!!


    I have to finish that dissertation now though... wife is getting testy

    12)Where do you watch Vikings games?
    After one year of watching it at the local Hooters, I did the math and got Sunday Ticket…
    I now watch every game on my 125” screen with a HD projector. BEST investment ever.

    Sounds pretty cool, lets see some pics of your setup.


    I have several questions.
    How far back do you normally sit to be able to take in that big of a screen?
    Is it 1080p or 720p and how bright is the projected image?

    Does the quality of a projected image that large depend quite a bit on the screen type/quality?
    I will try to post a few pics.... gimme a bit on that.

    I sat back about 12 feet... ideally a bit more is good; the new set up sits you back about 15-18 and it is better; really has the "theater" feel to it; watching football games is just ridiculous but great.

    The brightness is pretty decent; I use the low brightness mode to save bulb life and it's fine; if I have people over during the day I will turn it to normal mode and it is plenty bright....
    I have only had one screen, but I apparently spent enough and it's been very solid.
    I DO believe your screen quality will make a pretty significant impact on the image quality....I think I spent about 250 on mine....just read up on reviews before you buy!

    Re: " PP.O's Who are they really? " 20 Questions with ThorSPL ...

    They have a hit count on the 20 questions list going.... I'm in 12th place!

    Somebody needs to remind me to post some pictures of the Projector set up....
    However, they really
    just don't do it justice.
    I may have some videos I could post of drunken Wii gaming at a party; that would show you how it looks in a relatively BRIGHT room with a poor source (Wii)....

    It only gets better from there.
    Blu-Ray looks good on there - and it's only in 1080i.
    I couldn't afford 1080p and I figure it will come down eventually in price!
