Pssst. I drink to. :cheers:

I meant they don't help you in keeping your gear clean. That 'bacco resin gets on and in everything. Took me three hours to clean a kitchen's walls in an apartment because of the bacco resin. Was all around the outlets even.

Hello all I new to this forum, This is the second thread I have read all the way through and enjoyed it (despite the grammar police side track). I consider my self old school, I'm an 80's kid. I had an Atari because they were cheaper than Nintendos when I was a kid. Then I followed a console path like every one else. However, I have very fond memories of the arcade machines. The small N.C. town I grew up in on the coast had machines at the ocean front tourist traps like the board walk and we had a skating rink. Most of these establishments operated same old same old till the late 90's. I have just now fell back in love with arcades hence me reading this forum. I gather there use to be a following for old school mame that I missed out on and thats what  this started as but I read it at first thinking old school gaming in general.
I'm just your average 80's kid with a love for gaming. I have a retro gaming YouTube if you guys are interested https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN25Sl8nR2pcbikBa2ZRZvQ

The only thing too "old school" in my opinion is preferring CRT. And that's not because it doesn't look better (it does), its just that the technology is dying and won't be suitable for long.

Ha Ha, no 1up machines, I did just finished muddling my way through a 60-1 jamma, and I did a full and bar top raspberry pi build/repurposed. as well as some old poker machines that I plan to do next. Its all here at my channel Level By Level Gaming https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN25Sl8nR2pcbikBa2ZRZvQ if you guys are interested. I warn you I am really new to this and my builds are no where grand...but Im having a blast and posting regularly. I can already tell this forum is going to take me to the next level. Oh, and thanlks for the warm welcome  ;D

I have CRTs that will outlast most of the garbage cheap LCDs a lot of people use in their cabs. A good quality LCD might give them a run for their money in terms of longevity.

I'm jealous. I'm over here struggling to fit a 43" lcd in my Kangaroo cabinet just to get a bigger 4:3 picture. If a company came out with 4:3 monitors tomorrow, I'd by a 27" immediately. I just don't see any options anymore.

Try getting rid of CRT or old nonworking TV !
Here in Frankfort/Lburg KY trashman will not take them. Mercury in them
Country barn refused them. Same reason given.
Landfill refused them ! Same reason !
I found a dumpster that did not mind.

I've recently rediscovered the awesomeness of CRTs.  I bought 2 and got a 3rd on in a Defender cab.  I've now done a cap kit and I've bought a CRT analyzer/rejuvenator.  CRTs will be around probably as long as I'm alive.

Once the contrast issue is rectified, other display technologies will be more adequate.
