Re: Newfoundland Status - Muster Station

Just buy yourself a snowmobile and enjoy the outdoors. Little early yet - winters used to start earlier when I was a kid. There used to be a municipal bylaw that forbid the usage of snowmobiles within town limits before November 1st (because kids would tear up the neighbours lawns if there wasn't qu...

Re: Newfoundland Status - Muster Station

You won't find anything in Labrador City or Wabush. I grew up there and the last (arcade) operators were located in Quebec so all their inventory was routed in from the Quebec North Shore area. Once the last arcade closed down (early 90's I believe) everything left with the operator. I still have fr...

Thanks Mike and Lisa for inviting me into your home - awesome collection. I had a good time. Thanks also to Meagan and Brett for running things so smoothly. It was good seeing some of the regulars and meeting some new faces.

Re: Summer Pinball Bash - Friday July 13th

Thanks Lee. Everytime I see your collection it keeps getting better and better. Love that Catacomb!

Glad nothing came up so I could actually attend - pretty rare that I am in town on a weekend and have a free evening these days.

Cheers and have a great summer.

Re: Canada PinCon Closing Statement 2018

Great show Chris. Had a good time seeing the usual pinheads and chewing the fat. I really hope the show was a success from your persepective because the work you put in to pull it off is pretty intense. Your wife definitely deserves a special thanks from all of us. Hope to see you all next year - I ...

Re: Iron Maiden pics!!!

Played it in AllenTown as well and I loved the game play. It is beautiful, great sound, nice animations but as others have said the ball times are long. Pretty much everyone (first games) were putting in long games (no Iron Man that is for sure). Not sure how easy it will be to make it easier (by op...

Re: FREE: 32 in. Panasonic Tau CRT flat screen TV

Sylvain,

you may want to check to see if the Salvation Army will accept it first. I know when I tried to donate mine (34" Flat screen Tube) - I couldn't find any charitable organization that would take it. You can't give CRT's away now - although I did manage to give mine away to my niece.

Tom.

Yes Bugs Bunny is the worst followed by Stern IJ. I would agree with Hercules but that really is just a novelty item and I don't count anything that wouldn't fit in my basement.

Re: OT: Racing Wheels

Thanks Az. The lack of time is the reason that I don't want to invest too much money on more expensive options. I am sure that after six months the wheel won't get used but it at least would have a chance to get used more if it had a wheel stand that could easily move out of the way. I noticed that ...

OT: Racing Wheels

Hi guys, so I decided to buy my son and I a Logitec G920 racing wheel for the XBOX One over Christmas and right now we have it temporarily bolted to a table-bench in front of a chair. We are enjoying Forza 7! So now I am investigating a wheel-stand. I need something that doesn't take up to much room...

Need some quick help to get my STTNG back up and running quickly. Anyone in the Ottawa area have a spare AE-26-1500 Williams coil they would like to sell me until I can place an order? If so please PM me and I can drop by and pick it up.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Battery Removal & Fix

Simplest solution - just buy the new energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries. They don't leak, have a guaranteed shelf life of 20 years and are cheap ($18.00+tx for 12 at WalMart). Then you can check em every 5 years.

Re: STTNG - need board repair tech advice

You can always try reseating the ROMs as well. I have experienced a few weird bits of behavior over the years that has been resolved by reseating the ROMs. Something easy to try before digging too deep.
