we're down to £-245 for the events space equiptment.

Just a warning. That's out of a yearly budget of £960.

What budget is this? I'm confused. What has all the money gone towards?

I blew it on a new projector bulb. I still need to cash the cheque. I didn't want to renegociate the budgets (especially as I don't need many expensive things), but perhaps we didn't give enough to this WG, if a valid purchase puts it into the red by a huge amount. I was one of the people who came up with these back of an envelope figures, so maybe I (and everyone else) should live with it. Who knows.

How much was the bulb, is that the only purchase?

The way the budgets were worked out was thinking through everything that needed to be bought in a typical year. I don't recall projector bulbs featuring in the discussion so this might be considered an oversight.

Then again, we shouldn't need to buy a new bulb very often so perhaps this isn't a problem - over the year as a whole it may work out.

The bulb was a bargain at 258 pounds. I don't think we did consider projector bulbs when we came up with the numbers. Maybe it is too soon to try and up the budget. There is another 700+ quid to spend on 7 colour bear suits.

When was the last time we needed a new bulb?

If this was the last time, then January 2007. That's insane. 400 days with 5 hours every day. How did that happen? Even with all the Christmas filth, Ryan's afternoon comedies and films twice a week that is some doing.

I don't think we can have used it that much.

My bet is that the lifetime counter didn't get reset when the bulb was replaced last time. We may have not needed this replacement. Did we keep the old one?

I'm confused now, looking back through old threads for projector stuff.

This thread suggests we bought a new projector in July '07:

I still have the old one. If the counter didn't get reset, then it would have given a warning each time it was turned on. But it didn't.

That is a spare projector for moving around - upstairs, gallery, external events. The fixed cafe one has remained the same.

Hmm. Maybe the counter period is not the same as the specified lifespan.
