I was looking at my Days Live counter this morning and I thought, Gee, it seems a lot longer than that (It was 1,625 if I'm not mistaken). So I decided to take a look at The Internet Archive and see what the oldest page they had for my site.

The oldest page they had of mine was in December of 1998. However, when viewing that page, the oldest information was October 10th, 1998.

So with that, I adjusted the date and this site has been live for 2,202 days, or if you prefer, 6 years, 10 days. How time flies! I'm sure it's been a couple months before that (maybe 6), but they don't have a record of anything prior to that, so who really knows :-)

If you want to see what the site looked like back them, head over to the Internet Archive and enter the following URL's...

It's kind of cool to see how it's evolved over the years and to see how my collection has changed and grown over the years!

In December of 1998, I had 12 games. 8 Cabs, 4 PCB's.

Today I have 64 games, 24 Cabs, and 40 PCBs!

Had I kept all my games I would have 31 cabs, however I don't have the room for that many :-)

Games that are no longer part of my collection....

  • Popeye (I have boards for it, so it may come back)
  • Thief
  • Gorf
  • Side Arms
  • Crystal Castles
  • Bosconian (Twice)
  • TMNT
  • More News!

    Restoration/Preservation has begun on my Kickman.
    It's not a full restoration, but more of a preservation of what is there.  I like trying to keep things as original as possible.  With that in mind, I can take a few chances on this one as the damage is already done.  I'm mainly trying to prevent even more damage when I can.  Worse comes to worse, I'll do a full restore on it down the road.

    Well, I decided to update RoboJuke with a new Motherboard, Processor and RAM. The old one was a Celeron 700 with 2MB of RAM running Windows XP. I upgraded to a Celeron N3150 (Quad Core 1.35Ghz), with 8GB of RAM running Windows 10.
    After upgrading, I found out that the software I was using (Virtual Music Jukebox) wouldn't run on Windows 10. After looking for a replacement, I gave up and wrote my own Jukebox Software called "Simple JukeBox". It is avilable for FREE, you can read more about it here: http://forums.arcaderestoration.com/topics/17-Simple-JukeBox
