As a result of this web page, I've gotten a pretty regular stream of mail about Slide Cube projectors. I have therefore started a Slide Cube mailing list, for discussion of anything involving Slide Cube projectors - operation/repair tips, offers of items for sale, requests for advice, information on availability of parts, cubes, and used projectors, etc. You can subscribe yourself to the list. This is a closed list; only mailing list members can post to it. The volume is quite low, as you can see from the archives.
