Projectors NOT COOKIES

I APPROVE of the motion to purchase 2 more small LCDs

(I note that a projector costs about the equivalent of 1000 cookies, about 
one afternoon's worth at our current attendance level. I am perfectly 
willing to return to a no cookies tradition in order to provide tools for 
our group.

I would also like to say that I think that the amount of equipment that is 
building up is getting to be non-trivial and a burden as well as a boon to 
our processes.)

To:   802 SEC

I'm in the process of finalizing the purchase of the 2 LCD projectors which 
we authorized at La Jolla (one large, one small).

This will bring our set of owned projectors up to 14 total.

However in reviewing the agenda requests from our WG chairs for Tampa, we 
have outstanding requests for  TWENTY (20)  projectors, which means several 
WG break-out meetings will NOT get projectors or will have to timeshare 
with other WGs.

It is not too late to add 2 more small projectors (we already have the 
shipping case space to handle them) but we will need a fast turn around SEC 
electronic ballot to approve the additional expenditure (~$6K).  This 
should reduce the shortfall by 33% and make the possibility of timesharing 
much less arduous.  If we have to rent projectors, we will pay about $2K 
per projector for the week.

I need a final go/no-go on the additional purchase by Monday, October 23 in 
order to complete the purchase and get them to the meeting on time. Please 
move fast on this one, if possible.

The ball is in your court, gentleman.  I await your decision and submit my 
vote to approve in advance.

Sorry for late notice but we are just getting the meeting agenda data 
worked out to the point where we could see the problem.

Growth is always a painful process.
