    Hi all. Some of you were impressed with my bag of tricks last night (the HDMI cable and laser pointer). Just to let you know, I usually get cables, low cost electronic devices, and mobile phone accessories from Amazon. Their prices are often a quarter or even less of retail store prices for stuff like that. And, with Amazon Prime, you get free 2 day shipping for most of it. You too can be a meeting hero. ;)

      I often find cables and adapters ridiculously cheaply on eBay.
