December is slipping by pretty quick! Thought I would give a quick update and let you know that I've made more progress on my Control Panel Repair. Still isn't done, but I have more pictures up and have progressed further. Between Work, getting ready for the relatives and shopping, I haven't had much time to do anything! A friend of mine is moving into a new house so I have the honor of baby sitting his Asteroids, Tron and APB. While I'm baby sitting them, I also need to try to fix the Tron (Garbage on the screen) and maybe the Asteroids (Distortion problem and Fire Button problem). I told him it might take a year or so to fix. I want to make sure they are thoroughly tested :-) I don't think he bought it.... oh well, one can only try. I met a couple of locals here last week, visit Ron's page www.snipercade.com. He has a Sweet looking Tron! Like myself he's into collecting Atari 2600 carts and other computer related stuff. Also met Mike McDuffie and another person who's name I have forgotten (Sorry if you're reading this, I'm horrible with Names...) I think they should have a law forcing everyone to wear name tags until I've had a chance to memorize the names :-) All of them are very nice and live fairly close, so I'm sure we'll be getting together off an on in the future to swap ideas, and play games. There may be a few updates this month, not sure yet. Only time will tell. If you are wondering what happened to October 1999's news, well there wasn't any. I was busy helping my friend with his Haunted house (Follow the link below on the Banner). Al Warner's started a cool new project, that I think we should all show our support for. Its an Audio Magazine type of thing dealing with Video Games and Pinball. Here is a link to the audio page http://www.dameon.net/batlzone/pinsnvids/ . Its worth a listen. Also added a link under Arcade Primer for Cap Kits since I forgot to do that :-)

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
