Expensive indeed -- they want 450 or 675 PER DAY for a projector, when
cheap projectors can be BOUGHT OUTRIGHT
for 350-400 (VGA, small and portable) or 500 (800x600 or better, high

Unfortunately this is very short notice to try to sync up with other
grassroot local groups and try to split the costs and ownership of
such a purchase, then collecting the funds &c, but we should
immediately start asking local friends and acquaintances (esp. ones
who are freelance and do presentations, or organize a grassroot local
group on whatever subject) to see if there's any chance for us to
borrow a projector -- VGA would do and we may not need high luminance
(as long as the room of the BOF / presentation lets us dim lights
down, and I'd imagine it would).
