Re: $100 Toaster

Well, I bought a new toaster. It was $69.95 at Walmart. Time advances and so does technology. This one has a defrost feature. I’m sitting at a hotel room in Windsor Ontario so it’s a business write off for me. ;) If anyone is concerned, my old toaster is alive and well sitting at home ready and wait...

Panthera - Working Project $850

1980 Gottlieb Panthera for sale $850. This game is a working project. The boards have been gone through and are good. Displays are good. Cabinet is rough and backglass is "rough". All of the important artwork is in decent shape. The art that is screwed is of solid colours and easy enough for touchin...

Re: There are no more pinball machines on "the rock" LoL

I think all it boils down to is the writer trying to fill a block on a page for a newspaper to get a paycheck, gold star and a pat on the back. It’s not necessarily reality that sells.

Re: ROUTINE ON THE ROAD – REFUGE BY THE RIVERSIDE

Speaking of Renaissance, this is the waterfront view five minutes down the road from my hotel. The GM Renaissance Center. I’m starting week five of eight in Windsor Ontario. It’s odd seeing the town so torpid and empty. Detroit is so close you can touch it, but you can’t. You can see the people in c...

Thanks Rob. I wasn’t prepared to go back to twisting wrenches yet, but I can chill for a while when that gig is up. I was watching The Pursuit of Happyness the night before the call and I felt horribly obligated. Lol

Re: Enough already....

It’s quite simple math and psychology. If we have close to 3500 members most being happy and content, but there’s one person that decides to go very hardcore wierd and extreme in a bizarre way to attack somebody I figure we can rest easily understanding where the true problem is. ;)

Places to play - Windsor

Good morning guys. Unfortunately, I have to leave the family for work. I’ll be going to the Windsor airport for a couple of months. I’m looking for places to play some pinball once I get settled in. I won’t be bringing a pin with me this time because I’m taking my car, but I will be bringing a playf...

I wanted to put LED lighting under my pins in the arcade. I figure it would give a nice ground effect. What is a good setup?

I’ve always enjoyed your writings Robert. They give this monkey things to think about while trying to remember which button to push to get the cookie.

Those are wise words that must’ve stuck in my head and modified to my perception. I do remember Pitt St. being empty at the end and those words on the wall. They were great times (on my side) fondly remembered and missed.
