The equipment gods almost taketh away

Many of you who have followed me since the Livejournal days know that I comment upon the coming and going of equipment in my life by speaking of “The Equipment Gods”
When the equipment Gods giveth, they are the ones who give you the deep discount on gear that you need and materialize that “diamond in the rough” on the rack just before you enter the pawn shop
Unfortunately
They are also the ones who taketh away when your shit breaks down, gets stolen or falls out of the van because your dumbass guitar player was drunk and didn’t shut the door properly

Last night’s brush with the Equipent Gods came in the form of a video projector
I was messing around with some concepts and had just fired the projector up and the lamp was on for about 10 seconds
That’s when the power cable came out
Normally, that spells death for the lamp inside the projector and possibly a warped circuit board (as evidenced by the fuckass who unplugged my old projector at Big V’s)
The procedure is to power down the lamp so that the charge can dissepate and the fan can cool the circuit borards
I turned it back on again to see if the lamp was blown and it did not come back on
So I decided to sleep on it and see in the morning

A big sigh of relief when I turned it on just now and the lamp came on

Thanks Equipment Gods for not taking my projector from me 1 month before I am supposed to tour
