The Arcade Restoration Workshop wins an award! Whoo Hoo! My Many thanks to Donald A. Thomas, Jr for giving me this award. Be sure to visit his site. (Click on the Award) The TMNT monitor is back and better than ever. The Master Bedroom is now the Master Game Room :-) If you know of anyone in the Phoenix area that needs a Queen Sized waterbed, let me know. Its FREE to a good home. You really never know how small a room is until you go stuffing games into it :-) I went into a place here in town called "Apache Reclamation" and all I can say is "WOW!" These guys deal in JUNK and SURPLUS. They have every obscure part that you can imagine. Hundreds of bins of nuts, bolts, washers, springs, capacitors, resistors, connectors, edge connectors of every size, you name it. If you don't know what you are buying, don't buy it. Everything is sold "AS IS". Looking for Car rewinders? They have about a thousand of them :-) I found the clips used in the Williams games for routing wires (I had to dig through a bin for about 15 mins looking for the sizes I wanted). Need old medical equipment? They probably have it. They have things that will probably never be sold, but they also have lots of cool stuff. Anyone need an Oscilloscope for $300? They have about 10 of them (different types like HP, Tektronix, etc...) not sure if they have Probes or not. Don't even know if they work, but they look brand new. The 16 boards I won in an auction never showed up, so the Insurance claim should be under way... Really sucks. Still working on getting info put together for the other pages I'm working on. MAME isn't working very well under Windows 98 (Windows version of MAME), I'll have to try the DOS version and see if thats any better. I'll keep working on them... just haven't had a lot of time lately.

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
