  1. Ha. Thanks. We close on the house tomorrow. I'll have a week to get network cable, and speaker wire run throughout the house. There's already a nice media enclosure set up for ISPs to tie into. Most everything else is good to go. We don't even need to paint! The big move day is the 19th. I'm hoping to be playing this new Metroid by the end of the month.
  2. I have it ready to go, but I'm in the process of moving. My emulator PC is packed up at the moment. :-( Hopefully in the next month or so I'll have everything setup so I can get a crack at it. It looks good.
  3. The Last Jedi. Discuss. It's going to be a long, long, year.
  4. Happy birthday stigz!
  5. Thanks tthurman. I might have directed you to the website at some point. I know I've posted about MMMM a few times on here. He did bring a lot of joy. Dude was a gem. My first time there he showed me his tooth that he had tattooed. He was quick to give out quarters so you could check out a new machine he got in, and he would tell you all about it if you showed interest. It wasn't about making money it was about sharing his passion, and collection, and making people happy doing it. That second video was awesome. You really get a feel for the museum aspect. Thanks for sharing!
  6. The owner of my favorite arcade/oddity museum died on Sunday. Marvelous Marvin was the nicest guy you could ever hope to meet. He always had a smile and a kind word. The last time I saw him he gave my boy a bag of popcorn for free just because that's the kind of guy he was. He had a fantastic collection of coin-op stuff, and all kinds of other weirdness. The best part was you could play with everything. The ticket games were loose and, unless you really really sucked, you could walk out of there with a decent haul of candy and assorted little toys. They also have a fair amount of pinball machines, classic arcade games, and some newer games as well. Rest in Peace , good sir. If you find yourself in the metro Detroit area I highly suggest you block off a few hours to check the museum out. Here's a link to the story from the local NBC affiliate.
  7. Ohhhh I got chills watching that trailer. I tried watching X-Men Apocalypse today and I couldn't do it. What a steaming pile of turd. One of the three original X-Men movies sucked too. If we go by the numbers this movie should be good because we've already had our bad Wolverine movie out of the 3.
  8. Happy New Year, y'all.
  9. That's exactly what I was looking at. I just bought the 16:9 monitor because it was half the cost, and I was tossing the idea around of setting up PinballX on my emulator pc anyway. In the future I will be getting one of those 21:9's unless a better suited marquee sized monitor pops up for a reasonable price. I've also thought about a 16:9 monitor with a bezel across it to give the appearance of 2 screens. Kind of like what TerryRed did with his pincab. Using Marquee Masher by stigzler I could have one "monitor" show the marquee and the other "monitor" show CP Wizard or some other information. It'd be hard to make it look natural in a cabinet though.
  10. Going fast is a a good and bad thing. My mom knew she was dying for the last year. She was taking steps to get everything sorted out. She wouldn't admit it, but it was fairly obvious. She finally went to the doctor and was diagnosed with cancer in her lungs, liver, and brain. She died 45 days later. While I'm extremely sad that she died so quickly, I'm just as happy that she didn't have to suffer, and that my dad isn't left in financial ruin paying for treatments. I wish your grandma, and family, well Felix. Death does suck all around, and there's no real good way to look at it. Just take the small comforts as they come. Also, 2016 can suck it.
  11. If you do find anything reasonable please post it. I was looking at ultra wide 21:9 monitors from LG a while back, but I ended up just going with a standard 16:9 monitor. It worked out for the time being as I'm using the "marquee monitor" as a "backglass monitor" when using PinballX. I'd still like to build two dedicated rigs in the future though. One for GameEx and another for PinballX.
  12. Happy birthday good sir.
  13. I just picked up Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for $16 on DL Gamer. Oh the winter game sales are the worst.
  14. I got Street Fighter V, Injustice, and Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeros for under $30. I'd say it's a good Christmas present to myself.
  15. Got drunk! Three 9% beers and I was wrecked. Slept for a few hours, did Christmas morning, and now for a long day of festivities. Merry Christmas everyone!
