AV Guy Strikes Again


Okay, this is getting a bit ridiculous… Last night my financial advisor sponsored a screening of A Decent Factory, a film about working conditions at a Chinese Supplier to Nokia. The event was held at the NOW Magazine Lounge, which—who knew?—has a nice little screening room in the back, easily able to accommodate the twenty or so folks who showed up. Only problem was, the DVD was from Finland, and nobody could get it to play.

Enter yours truly, who managed to get a video signal from a Windows laptop to the big screen, without sound. Thankfully, the laptop had loud enough speakers that the screening could go ahead as planned.

Remember the dweeb in Grade 4 who would spend recess threading the film projector for Teacher? I’ve become that guy!
