I'm lucky enough to have excellent 16mm prints of the first two films in my collection.

Very cool, paulb. I always wanted to have a film collection on film. What sort of projector(s) do you have?

Anna S gave me mine. My Yahoo ID is suet55 (My name is Sue, my second initial T), I sign my pottery suet (although I put the t under the u when I do it) and she called me Birdfeed in an e-mail once. It actually took me a few minutes to figure out why. So when she recruited me to this list it seemed like a good choice. She suggested I go to Vienna once, and it turned out to be one of the best ideas she ever had. This is a much cheaper thrill. And worth every penny.

jheem, I've been involved with 16mm films and projection since I was a schoolboy. As a librarian, I managed the [Tasmanian] State Film Library (and Recorded Music Section) for 10+ years, and many of my evenings are spent projecting films for the Hobart Film Society [www.tased.edu.au/tasonline/hfilmsoc/] and various community groups. I have 900+ films (mainly shorts and children's films) and a dozen or so projectors to keep me busy.

paulb-- I used to run the old Bell & Howells projectors in high school. Lots of fun, though I was always more into the production side. Still have a couple of 16mm cameras. I wonder what the cost of a 400' roll of 7222 is these days? One thing I don't miss about film is the physicality of editing. I never could do a proper cemant splice.

It's um, you know, hard core.

And in answer to this thread's original question:
The name Coffeebean came about from a teenage friend who asked me, "Know what I mean, jellybean?" I replied, with latte in hand, "I'm more of a coffeebean, don't you think?" And the name stuck.
