Waterscreen

Looking for a water screen, Where as the water falls, it is chopped up into "pixels" and simple logos, graphics can be formed in the negative space where no water is. This is NOT the type where video is projected onto a waterfall or fogscreen. Has anybody seen this device? Need to rent for an event.

When I take screenshots on my mac and paste them into a power point presentation I can see them, but anyone I send the ppt to gets no pictures, just a quicktime decompressor message.

Ready to jump off a klif.sys....

I'm getting a Blue Screen of Death on startup (Windows XP Pro) which says that the "problem" (whatever it may be) is being caused by a file called klif.sys.
