Pinballs, Arcades, and MicroControllers, Oh My!

March 3rd, 2015 No comments

Did I not post anything in 2014???  Apparently not.  Well, it was a busy year.  Not only did I attend my first IJA convention 20 years but the basement now houses 2.5 pinball machines (Fire Power and Spirit of 76) and a Pac Man.  I’m still on the lookout for more at a reasonable price.  I spent a fair amount of time building a video pinball machine but didn’t quite get it finished before the weather turned cold.  It WILL be done in 2015.   I’ve also been working with Arduino microcontrollers and Raspberry Pi’s.  I also got my YouTube channel off the ground.  It will really take off in 2015 with HD video, edited video, a theme song (yep), bigger projects, and much more (really!).  Check it out at:

Cold Weather = Little or No Painting

January 25th, 2013 No comments

The cold weather has slowed down the painting on the arcade cabinet.  The thing is, there’s not that much left to do.  We have had a day here and there that’s been warm enough.  Cross your fingers for an early spring!

Long Time, No Post

December 9th, 2011 No comments

Not much postworthy of late.  It’s hard to believe that I haven’t posted in four months!  In that time I’ve just been working on re-designing the web site, doing computer maintenance for the family, and assembling the new “Pod PC”.  This will give my podcasting home a permanent spot.  It’s my first time working with a Shuttle case.  It’s a bit cramped on the inside but should look cool when I’m done.  The STATUS site should be published before Christmas.  Look for a new podcast in 2012.  I’ve got the structure defined and a supporting web site created.  I want to get two or three shows ready before unleashing it on the world.


There’s more to come in 2012.
