Yeah, there is a thread about it in the buy/sell forum. I put in a (low) bid myself (knowing full well that my bid would be under the reserve, or wouldn't win).
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.

Good luck to frosty on the next cab ! ;D

That is sad, you have some hard to find not so cheap controls on that thing.

Realizing this happened some months ago, but recently Frosty's site has been shut as well as he seems to have lost his zeal for "the game"

thats a shame as i referred back to his site often to see his projects for inspiration and ideas. Someone with some extra web space should offer to host his site (minus the contact info and all that for him) simply for documentation purposes and so that it'll remain viewable to us n00bs wanting to build our own cabs.

So if anyone sees this and has webspace offer it up. Actually.. come to think of it, i've got some space open! duh! dont know why i didnt think of it before, not sure how longterm i can keep it up but FROSTY if you happen to see this (or if someone wants to contact him) i'd be honored to post up the sections of your old site pertaining to your mame projects, or at least if nothing else the pics..(obviously citing you as the author of course)   let me know!!

but still i'd like to (or wish someone would) post Frosty's good work back on the net to keep it viewable, i'm wishing now that i'd printed it off hardcopy.

I pointed out this thread to frosty, and he was nice enough to put the site back up for historical purposes.

Hi everybody -

Yeah i've been MIA I know for quite some time....I put the site back up, I guess I forget people still check it out occasionally (even if I don't update it, which I should....). Thanks rampy for letting me know.

The cab went to a really nice guy in Cali, who just couldn't wait to put it up for his family and friends.  I'm really happy it went to a nice home, in fact I didn't even ask that much for it, considering.  I put so much time into that thing that I really didn't want to let it go at all, but it was time to move on to bigger and better things...just new interests, you know?  And in the end I'm just happy it went to a nice family.

When I get my own home one day I will definitely build a new cabinet.  (hey i got the tools...might was well use them right? :)  )  Maybe a cockpit cab first.   
 
Anyways - I just got a new position in my company a few months ago and it's not the greatest....I've been looking at EA (despite the recent overtime fiascos).  If there are any current employees here that want to lend a fellow gamer a hand, like what they look for etc, that'd be much appreciated. :) 

Thanks again guys for supporting the work and effort - I'm glad I was able to help people

I couldn't find the auction. I can't believe ebay removes their auctions after 14 years....

Yes, I was looking the other day at old bookmarks and it was gone. I didn't know he sold it long before I knew of it.
