Now we're coming up on two years so I'd imagine he's going to be out within another month or so?

I think he's only been actually incarcerated for about 6 months now. the rest of the time was spent dicking around in the legal system.

It's "white collar" prison, he's been good, and he's been doing all the things the powers that be think he should be doing whilst in there. I'm not sure how often reviews come up, but I wouldn't be surprised if when his comes up, he goes up for consideration.

He should be in the halfway house around Christmas time. 

How about we have him as a guest speaker at Zapcon?  I think his story would be very interesting to collectors....

We'll schedule him after the Ted Talk on how to use a Raspberry Pi to make your grail arcade.

So, if my math is correct, Mr. Foley has been released.  Anyone heard from him?

That's a pretty good demonstration of exactly why regular tweeting presents no value.

I purchased some Quantum3D hardware from Dave in the past when I was collecting 3dfx stuff, he was always square with me.

Hope he turns things around.

After reading the first page of this thread, i read some articles of him when the lawsuits and prosecution happened.  Now he posts that he's getting back to work, and gets nothing but praise on twitter.  Do just his investors follow him?  Am i missing something? Cause i would think that "back to work" is the last place you'd want this guy to get to.    :dunno

Last time I saw him was at CES 2014.  He was with an outfit called 4K or something like that was demoing 4K TVs. Coincidence?   

My guess he is back with them and will showcase some more of his 4K equipment.  I haven't seen the attendee list yet, so he might be there this year.

He has served his time and now is square with the house.  Hopefully things will turn around for him.

I am pretty sure all of the people he ripped off didn't get their money back. He is not square with them.

You might be confusing him with Adam Judd, aka Dave Adams (alias) of Ram Controls fame.

Dave Foley is the guy behind the commercially sold Ultracade multi-game arcade machine.
He pissed a lot of people in this hobby off when he tried to trademark the name MAME for himself.
(he claims it was to protect the name, others claim it was to prevent his competitors from ever using it)
Other than that, he really hasn't done anything against the arcade community.
He has announced arcade related products and failed to deliver, but unlike Dave Adams didn't take money for pre-orders.

If you're an investor in his penny stock (NTEK), you might have other things to complain about....and they do.  :lol

I thought he stiffed people on pre-orders as well. Guess I should take a breath before I post.

Let us not forget he was the first guy to code an arcade multi emulator.  So in theory he was entitled to MAME and its trademark.  Also he pulled his fair share of illegal eBay members out of auctions.  Then there was that twist of fate.  KLOV members are his groupies... :laugh2:

Since my purchase there was a lawsuit (google....(ultracade lawsuit) involving several companies because come to find out someone stole, copied and sold the games without permission. It's called copyright infringements and it is big time against the law. While there many machine sold and lots of individual games packs and games sold, the lawsuit did not pursue the end buyers (ME) because there was not intent or knowledge by any of the buyers.

still illegal.

Quote
Also out of that less then 15 of them have the most sought after games that are games like Dig Dug, Galaga, Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Q-Bert and many others games that I purchased legally for my system. (photos shown)

just because you where suckered into purchasing illegally stolen ROMS doesn't make them all of a sudden legal.

Quote
I have been told the system is worth between 18k to 22k in auction to a buyer. So I choose a number in the middle and no auction fees need will need to be paid.

you were lied to my friend. CGC still sells these machines...and not for 18-22,000 either.

You aren't kidding
games at 1k per or less + 1k for gas and all the new breakers, wire, and outlets.
don't think an extension cord and a kraken of powerstrips will cut it.

Never underestimate the power of some well placed power strips.  Here in hillbilly land we don't add more breakers, we just shove a 3 way splitter somewhere.  Just don't run the toaster and the microwave at the same time.  ;)

He wasnít that clever...

Its a long story but in a nut shell:

The fire alarm went into pre alarm so I told the apprentice to man the panel and I ran off to investigate the cause of the alarm.

I burst into a tiny office in the corner of the warehouse thatís filled with bad smelling probably toxic smoke caused by aforementioned extension lead melting into a goopy flaming mess and aforementioned cock womble sat at a desk typing completely oblivious to the fact!!

Needless to say I called him some pretty stern words and left before H&S turned up to spit roast him!

To say the least I was taken aback by his stupidity and that he was still conscious!!

The H&S dept did not find it so bemusing though....

Maybe those space heaters are why one of them is always walking around asking if anyone else smells that burning smell.

I asked a professional once if menopause caused women to smell burning all the time.  Got called sexist.

Whatís wrong with being sexy?

If pointing out a woman's ability to pick a space heater that uses up just enough amps on a circuit so that when some dude in another cube plugs in his phone charger it pops the breaker is considered sexist.....
