hey there fellow frameworkers!
I have been given a xenon lamp projector for the Electric Mural Project. It
is a semi-portable one, as we managed to carry it into my basement, but it
is not a modern portable smaller one, like you would set on a table.

It is a Cinemechanica (Sp?) from Italy. It has a seperate power supply.
It came out of the UC-Berkeley campus theatre in the 80's and then spent
some time being a projector for George Clinton's Funkadelic/Parliment band.

I would like to use it for the Electric Mural Project, but .....

as smart as I am ;) I need help figuring out the threading of the thing.

Is there anybody in San Francisco who would like to come hang out for a
little bit and help me figure it out? It would benefit me and all the
thousands of people that see the Project.

Any help greatly appreciated. Oh and BTW, No, I don't have the
