I hope everyone had a great 4th! Its summer in Arizona again and its DAMN hot. So hot in fact that I started stripping a cabinet, let it set for 15 mins like I normally do, and then went to scrape it off. The only problem is it had completely dried! So much for that 3/4 can of stripper. So with the remaining 1/4 of the can of stripper I applied the stripper, and 20 seconds later I started scrapping. Most of it was dry by the time I was done scraping. I'm sure August is going to be just as bad, if not worse. I might start working on the games at midnight (but its still around 80 at that time) just so its cool enough to be productive. I picked up (Ok, actually, John dropped it off) a Sinistar today! Awesome game. It still kicks my ass. Time to set it on "Wussie Mode" so I can get past the 3rd level :-). Pictures are up on the Sinistar Page! It could stand a new CPO as the one I have has some cracking and cigarette burns, but its still very nice. Everything is original on it and is very clean. The art work on the sides are a little scuffed, but nothing major and I am very happy with it. The rubber-band thing on the joystick is broken so if anyone knows where I can find a replacement, please send me an email at bking@primenet.com . Super Mario Brothers has been changed to Excite Bike as I think its a better game. Its been the weekend of re-arranging. I re-arranged my computer room, then I re-arranged my Arcade so that I can fit more games into it. I think I can cram around 10 - 12 games in there. Pictures of the Arcade are on the Arcade Page. I also now have pictures of my Space Shuttle Pinball up on the Space Shuttle Page.

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
