Last post here (Ironically)

Well, I have finally found a free website / space provider that does a decent job in regards to template customization and content management (and smart-phone friendliness).  I have created a new site at the following link:

It still retains a bloggish-feel, but allows me to add / update specific pages much easier.   I'll keep this blog up for a few more month, so my VAST number of subscribers (HA!) can get transitioned.  Hopefully the new site will get 'the arcade dream' out to more people.

Finally back!

Okay . . . wow.   It’s been a frickin’ year since I posted.  Can’t believe so much has happened and I haven’t documented anything.  If you’ve been keeping up with the web / podcast stuff Rick and I have been working on, you know that it’s been dead for some time.  Rick’s had continuing medical issues, and combined with me landing my dream job and keeping busy with the family stuff, it just wasn’t working out to keep the podcast going.  Maybe I’ll push a solo cast in the future, but I want to focus on the arcade and other ‘at-home’ projects.

Arcade life – my older son and I have been diving into the world of RC cars lately, but I’ve had a little time to tinker here and there in the gameroom over the winter.  I purchased a back-lit keyboard for the Horizons cab, and finally customized / installed bezels for the ceiling black lights (bezel pics to come soon). 

The mural is slowly moving forward again as well.  After installing furniture sliders on the pinball machine, I was able to move it out enough so that I could start on the planet Saturn.  The moon is going to need another coat of white paint with Rit color brightener to make it reflect better under black light.  That reminds me – I’ll be adding a new section that includes some tech / how-to posts for you home gamers out there.  That’s about it for now.  Since the weather is improving, I should be able to start on the cocktail cab soon.
