    Next time you play a pinball machine, take a closer look. I was surprised to see the details hidden in plain sight. This cute little sign is from a Cyclone machine somewhere in New Hampshire.

    With the TGSAP submission queue being longer than ever before, there are quite a few people that are bumping older submissions. This brings attention to the submission with the hopes of more people voting on it and closing the deal.

    John McAllister just did not want to leave the Twin Galaxies Entertainment Festival. I didn't either. Can't wait for the next one.

    Kudos to the performance fix. I am thinking a bad database query was tuned, or the server was upgraded to a more powerful virtual machine.

    Check out these bad boys. I have built 9 so far. These are going to a local trade show just to gauge interest.

    I'll get them synchronized and post a cool video of objects scrolling across multiple screens.
