Had a friend drop off two minty 19" 4:3 LCDs that "were just laying around collecting dust".  One went into the Galaga, another is going into my SW Cabaret until I can get a CRT monitor in there.  Free screen chuffiness!

I bought back the cab that was once ShoRyuKade ( http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,120488.msg1278327.html )

Its kinda beat the ---fudgesicle--- up, and all the art and everything is gone, but I didnt want the cab to go to the dump. Don't expect a project thread any time soon, I'm balls deep in Killer Instinct cab.

Seriously. Those things were so annoying. Put in a bit of effort and put up some real lights.

Good repurpose for sure.

I couldn't take the occasional blinding light from that thing, so I put black duck tape on the bottom half of the lens that faces outward.  I also cut the end off the plastic yard spike, drilled a hole into a 2x4 scrap, and have it up on a little platform now.  Major improvement.

Late Christmas present... Father buys me some extravagant tool every year.

Took it to my restaurateur great grandfather's meat cleaver.  (I had previously embalmed it in black paint to prevent rust... It's been used as a workshop tool for 50+ years). This thing might be ready for butchering sheep duty again.

True story:  A couple of years ago we were seriously considering having our youngest try some of that 8-Bit to scare him off alcohol.  Might be the worst tasting beer I've ever attempted to drink.   :lol

Yeah, and it wasn't cheap, either.    :timebomb:

Still think the worst was Blue Moon Oatmeal Cappuccino Stout.  Turned out my friend had hauled it to two parties before he brought the rest to mine.  First time I gagged on a beer since I was like 9 years old.  Taking a swig of what I thought was regular Blue Moon and getting.... That.  Yikes.

I could retire in about 7 more years at the earliest, but I've come to realize I don't want to do this for 7 more years. I'd also have to spend $8k out of pocket to move over on the salary scale, but I'd rather put that towards my daughter's own college tuition.

It bothers me that educators aren't paid more.  It's one of the most important jobs so teachers should really get paid accordingly.  Maybe then the nation wouldn't be so darn stupid.

Too poor for the Super Bowl though I spent hours contemplating it when the tickets hit $1,900 a week ago.  Would have been a helluva game to see in person. 

Teachers pull about $50k here for 9 months, and Texas is allegedly one of those bad states that hates everyone.  Many school teachers in my family and they did fine and have had a comfortable retirement.

Ok, look at it this way.  A lot of schooling is involved in becoming a teacher, depending upon what level you teach for of course.  Typically people with degrees bring in 60k or more easy.  In most States teachers get the same amount as a blue collar worker... they do extra work without any financial incentive to do so.  So what incentive do the brightest and best minds have to become a teacher?

Because of this good teachers are the exception, not the norm, especially in super poor areas.

It's not about teachers being in the poor house, it's their pay not rivaling doctors and the like, which it should because forming young minds is just as important as saving lives.  I mean I do my part, any prop. that comes up for vote I always vote to give them more pay, but apparently WV is a red state now, so my vote never counts.

Grading some submitted assignments. This is why you carefully spell check and grammar check as well as give a complete read through to your work before you turn it in, kids.

Grading is a funny thing, when I was in college we got the riot act about plagiarism.. and in hind sight, they didn't have the tools back then to actually catch it.  Now they do, and every semester my wife agonizes over what to do when a student inevitably gets flagged.  Generally that problem sorts itself out because if a student is deliberately plagiarizing they tend to be about to flunk out anyway.

I don't take advice to get off ---my bottom--- from a guy sitting on his ass in front of a podium, where you are supposed to stand.  You wouldn't see Bernie Sanders sitting in a high chair.

He should get a pass for just about anything. A woman at my church is turning 98 this year. She works in our food pantry serving people who need help feeding their families. She walks to church from her house across the street. Without a cane or walker. She is amazing.

Bah! Great Uncle Ed is 92... up until his stroke last year he could run circles around me... quite literally.  He's still pretty darn spry, but the stoke took some function away from his left leg.

Decided it was time to get back into spoiling perfectly good food game. 

I present... Cheese.



One quart of whole milk yields a blob about the size of a deck of cards.  I am hilariously lactose intolerant.

This will end well.

Yeah, we opened up one of the bottles of strawberry wine I aged in a Topo Chico bottle for like three years (through indifference).  The smell wasn't great, kind of like wet old bread, but the taste wasn't completely awful.  One of the group even liked it.  I poured that stuff down the drain.

 :lol


Decided to spend the $50 and be slightly more serious this round.  Yeast was 50 cents, apple juice was $5 a gallon, sugar and spice about a buck.  Bottles were $11 with the air lock.  If I reuse any of this stuff, that's actually pretty reasonable, especially as my damned dive British pub has gone up to $5-6 a pint.

No, but I did see that cabinet today when I made the pickup. Still on my want list. The guy who owns it isn't too keen on getting rid of it yet though. I asked him at ZapCon last year and he gave me this look.

Get people aware of and children excited about agricultural endeavors.  Tons of scholarships handed out, etc.

My wife has received thousands of dollars from them and it has been a lifesaver.  Funding genotyping this semester.

So, yeah, I get it and can laugh at some of the absurdity but hey.

Today I went back to the rodeo and saw The Chainsmokers.

They don't sing, dance, or play instruments.  They pretend to turn dials, listen to headphones, and say, "let me hear you Houston! 1 2 3 4!"  The light show was cool, and I was surrounded by top shelf ---Bad words, bad words, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when saint censors you?--- dancing to it.  Which was nice.

My wife played their EP on the drive home.  It was actually pretty good.  Why wasn't their no name female vocalist there?

Nice. I get that silly nostalgia feeling whenever I hear a pole position machine in operation.
Yep. Same here. Although it's going to be "for sale" at ZapCon, I ain't gonna try too hard to sell it.

But I gotta tell you, that sombitch is HEAVY.

I'm gonna make some fan supports tomorrow and add a fan. Someone already did the power mods, so the fans will help keep things cool. I modeled the support in Illustrator and will plasma cut it.

In other news, I got my second Pokemon Go Plus - first one went to my wife. 

Fun fact about this device, you don't own Pokemon Go Plus, Pokemon Go Plus owns you.  My desk is in range of a Pokestop.  Bzz... Bzzz.... Bzz...

I'm surprised you are still playing it.  Actually I don't think I ever started.  Installed it on my phone but it was glitching out and never bothered to fix it.

It has introduced us to several area parks and increased my step average, so no hate here.  The creator is a Texan and did an interview in Texas Monthly where he said the entire point of the game was to get you outside and visiting local points of interest.  If that sounds appealing to you, you will enjoy it.  Otherwise, nah.

Just finished my first professional arcade repair job. Local Barcade has a TMNT with a bad power switch. I came out and swapped it for them, 10 minutes later and twenty bucks richer.

Which place, Cobra?  I was actually impressed by that place.  It feels like a neighborhood arcade that happens to have a bar instead of the other way around.

A couple of my buddies came over last night. Their wives wanted to have a girl's night out. My friends brought their kids out and everyone had a blast in my mini arcade. All 4 dedicated cabs and my MAME cab got heavy use. The kids got a kick out of seeing their names on my hi score leaderboard.
    I want to thank this community for making nights like this possible. You guys gave me the drive to build my own cab and to pick up dedicated games. :cheers:

One is for long term storage for junk like arcade machines. The other will be turned into a workshop until I build the real shop. And they're both used as wind breaks for the camper.
