For those of you that use DLP, is it in the biggest theater you have?
What happens in a few weeks when the Staw Wars box office starts dropping? If it was on film you would move it to a smaller house, what
do you do with the digital version?

#1 - Largest House 563 seats - Believe SW will play until Lilo & Stitch

#2 - Medium House 266 seats - believe it may a longer commitment but don't know for sure.

Steve said, "rm -f StarWars." What does that mean in English?

rm -f StarWars

That would be the Unix command to force-remove the file "StarWars" from the hard drive.

(Yeah, this is really for Yak).

I'm kinda disappointed in you guys.
Of course, Scott, rm -f isn't going to prompt you! For the non-Unix geeks, the meaning:

code:

-f Remove all files (whether write-protected or not) in a
directory without prompting the user. In a write-
protected directory, however, files are never removed
(whatever their permissions are), but no messages are
displayed. If the removal of a write-protected direc-
tory is attempted, this option will not suppress an
error message.

Frankly, I would have presumed that StarWars would be a directory (do the DLP boxes store a single movie in an entire file?!), so I would have gone with "rm -rf StarWars" or "rm -r StarWars" depending...

Hmmm interesting qustoin. I don't know. We didn't throw away older projector so its not likely we'll only play digital inthe largest house. But we also have DLP on a medium sized room about 300 seats then we have an actual Print of SW in another one. So the Print will probably just get tossed around.

And by the way our DLPs run on Windows 2000!

Isn't that reassuring? Windows has always being flawless and problem-free, right?

Well there haven't been any yet problems yet though I swore I heard some studdering in the sound for about a second a few days ago, around the 2hr:08mn mark.

I think the main concern is the security vuneralbilities in Windows. I mean technically once I have the computers IP address I could just...

Surely only the control system runs on Windows.

Isn't star wars booked with a minimum run of 12 weeks for the largest house in most cases? I'd imagine just like Ep1 nobody will be watching it in 12 weeks.
