Well, I decided to modify the look of the home page a little, other pages will follow over time. Please feel free to let me know if you like the new look! Can we say "Hectic"? Ok, the week before last was a 72hour week at work, so I didn't get anything done that week. Last weekend I wrote an application to track my Arcade games. I will be releasing it as freeware for those who would like to use it. If you would like a copy, please Email me. You can see some screen shots on the Arcade Game Tracker page. Comments are welcomed and encouraged. The software will be the basis for generating some of my web pages in the future. Chris Nelson, who has been extremely helpful and provided me with my Metrocross stuff has started a web site (commercial) so be sure to check it out at www.nelsonsgallery.com/arcade. He might have something you've been looking for, for a long time. I've also been working on a JAMMA cab for a friend of mine while I wait on parts and other people to help with the art work. The art work is by far the hardest part of the restoration. I found more parts for my Metrocross game (Hard to find Molex connector) and I am going to be stripping the cabinet to re-paint it. I haven't decided on what color yet. Its either going to be All black, or All White. I kind of like the All White cabinets, however, once I decide, I have to live with it since the Side Art will NOT be coming off once applied. Tax time is here, and its been nice to me this year :-) I will be buying a EPROM burner and more power tools! More Power! (Insert Tim Allen impression here) The bad news is that SpeedChoice has pushed the date of Bi-Directional service off another month or two. Something about if the Antenna is slightly off and interference with other people's TV... Come on, its only Microwave :-) What this means is that I wont be hosting my web site from home for another 2 months or so....

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
