Although whats not so chuffy...Is the fact a larger tube, requires a larger cab, and in the Red Baron project (Since the only made 500 cockpits anyway) I am seriously considering a full composite, Using modified Star Wars cab plans.

 :o Wow, Jenn. I knew you were running mad science projects, but large screen vectors, that is wild. Would love to see the results. :cheers:

The grunge work is being done now, the not so fun stuff like photoshoping the marquee (obviously that and control panel are going to be larger too, But I will do a thread on the build for you guys...I dont have 100 yokes on the shelf Mike, I am guessing I did 100 or so of them over the course of the experiments, some were failed attempts...If you guys try it, 100 turns of 24 ga. Enameled magnet wire seems to be about right, but be really careful with those purity rings, they are really easy to break, (and that yoke winds up in the trash)...but you can then use a ampliphone/HV...Or that repro board.

.... With a television tube of comparable size, for larger tubes, you need a bigger coil for saturation😘

Yeah that's why we would like you to do a build guide.... pretty sure almost all of us are interested in rolling our own vector monitors considering how rare they've become.

I wanted to say thanks to Saint for providing us with such a great outlet for learning more about those games of my youth. I had a spare PC lying around that summer and wanted to do something with it. I remembered futzing around with MAME earlier in the decade, and so I looked around. I found Mike Trellioís arcadecab.com website, which led me to here... which led me to a whole new world of new skills, an understanding of obsolete electronics, and all you great friends. Hereís to the next 10 years! :cheers:

Finally after 4 Years of delays and pratting about!!  Tomorrow I will finally find out what our illustrious leader has planned for the Infrastructure team.
I'm fairly sure it will be an attempt at a wage reduction whilst getting us to do the same job we have already been doing for what is a government wide agreed wage :)
I'm so looking forward to it,  Shame we have to do it over Teams so he gets out of having to look any of us directly in the eye :) I bet he doesn't even turn on his camera for it :)

Well the Chuffiness is over again.  No voluntary redundancies,  But we did get to see the new structure,  2 full time positions for 4 of us to fight over and 1 1yr fixed contract for telephony engineer (May as well just ring fence that for the telephony guy)  Didn't have the new Job Descriptions available yet though so showing us the new structure was pointless :)  Basically spent 40 minutes Listening to one of the worst sales pitches I've ever heard  :laugh2: Probably not helped by the fact that he was trying to sell us something that we have watched being built and that we are not impressed with  >:D >:D At the end of the 40 minutes he asked if anyone had any questions or comments,  after the most awkward minute of silence I finally put my Hand up in teams and said No questions, Just a comment.   If this was Dragons Den and I'm a Dragon then I see nothing there for me so I'm Out. This was followed by another minute of awkward silence before the meeting was ended.  JD's may be available to view tomorrow but not holding my breath :) Hey ho, time to go hawk myself back out to the private sector, enough of this public service  :laugh2: :laugh2: :laugh2: :laugh2:

Long story short:

A water line broke off in our bathroom vanities while we were on vacation.


This proceeded to pour water everywhere which reached our basement, master bath and master bedroom destroying much of the stuff we had stored where the block wall is wet in the center of the picture. 


The only reason I'm posting this in the chuff thread is because if you look in the far right corner of the below picture you can see where I had my CNC'd Star Wars cab still in pieces stuck in a corner.  The water stopped just shy of where the mattress is sitting in front of the cab.  If the water would have traveled 2 more feet I would have lost $600.00 worth of a new cab that wasnt even built yet.

Wow! I have never seen a flexible connector break like that before. I know some people turn their water off when going on vacation because of things like this. I have in the past and this may make me do that every time now. I hate turning it back on though. Then you usually have to clean all the aerators (where I live at least).

You know, it almost makes you wish they'd put some kind of automatic cut off on the line. I mean, say 2-3 hours of full tilt water running and you have to go hit a reset button. How hard could this be? We've all got horror stories like this.

I think we all need to invest in those little frog things that email you if they detect moisture.  Always thought they were dumb but since the nearby mine closed down we've had all kinds of breaks and leaks.... I guess it's the increase in available pressure that nobody at the water company thought to adjust for.

I'm replacing my water heater. This link came in one of the quotes: https://meetflo.com/product/smart-water-shutoff

Silly looking, yes. But that's exactly how I knew my water heater was starting to leak. Thanks LeakFrog! (mine isn't wifi, but it was irritating enough to hear)

I knew the hot water heater was leaking because my pilot light kept going out.  Now I have 2 dead hot water heaters laying across the rafters because theyíre too big to fit through the attic entrance.  Also, my hot water heater is in the attic.  Some day one of them is all gonna go Donnie Darko on me in bed and youíll be released from the time loop.

I think I am going to start doing this.  Every time I have had a 'home disaster' its been water related.

The exact same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago.... water line in the kitchen just snapped.  Now luckily I was home at the time but wtf man?  How does a stainless steel line just break like that in the summer time?

Pure ---smurfy--- luck brother.   :lol

You punks just don't understand chuff.

Sorry jennifer.  I was just posting my chuffiness over the fact my new Star Wars cab was not hurt in the chaos.

I had a rubber washer go bad on a toilet tank this year.  Came home to an inch of water in my bathroom and hallway.  It sucked.

Damn pbj.  Sounds like you and I share the same ---smurfy--- luck.

Does getting a Global VR Desert Gunner cabinet for free count in the realm of chuffiness?

Damn thing is obnoxiously (top)heavy.

Of course it turns out that that computer (?) that ran this beast is missing and some termites have had their way with some of the cabinet and moved on...

But the Rick Moranis looking control hood appears to be intact- and the monitor powers up anyway-

Anyone know where I can find the stuff to build a functional brain for this thing?

Apart from San Jose that is.

For $1200.......
Why'd you kick me?

Installed the Funnyplaying Retro Pixel in my old gameboy. Looks very nice with a slightly bigger screen and new bezel.

Pics attached showing a couple of color palettes and pixel mode off and on.

Went to bootsale this morning, some guy selling off all his old mans steering wheels and games etc  He really didn't have a clue he didn't.  So I Got a Thrustmaster TMX for Xbox one/PC and a Thrustmaster 488GTB for PS4/PC  paid £15 for the pair and he threw in an Xbox one Turtle Beach headset.  Unfortunately I saw him 2 minutes too late as somebody already had their hands on the t3pa pedal set along with the  T300 Wheel for £20  :laugh2: :laugh2: :laugh2: :laugh2:

I patched the wall in the powder room today and installed the old towel ring hanging thing.  Drilled out the new holes and installed the hardware myself.  Took at least 20 minutes but came out great.  My kids will eventually rip it down again but this should give me a few months/years at least.  This is the 4th time I've done this and I was out of space in the drywall behind the mounting plate for new holes so I had to patch it.  For some reason, I'm quite pleased with being able to cross this off of the to do list LOL.
