Re: Switch a pc on from the mains switch?

I'm glad actually. Thanks for the update - I wasn't aware that some motherboards need a bios change too ...So I know what to do myself now if I ever run into one.

Re: Switch a pc on from the mains switch?

Just cut the PSU's green wire and connect it to one of the black ones - Use a crimp so that you don't have to cut the black wire - Or just carefully shave a little bit of the plastic off the black wire and wrap the end of the green wire around the copper inside it, then wrap it up with tape. That's ...

Re: Have you ever thought of quitting your job and…

you know, it's ****. Big chains monopolize everything. Hard to think of any little shop/business that could survive.

Admittidly though, an arcade isn't the first thing you should think of.

Your dream machine?

what cabinet would you love to have the most? Specialist or generic? Woody or candy? (if space was a non-issue).

For me, it would have to be a working hydrallic Space Harrier machine. I had a dream about finding one a while ago.

Re: Best. Console. Ever

Neo Geo is surely the Best. Console. Ever. But the question above the poll is "which console holds the best memories for you" and that's got to be snes/MD for most people here. Hard to decide what to vote for, but in the end, I have to go for the predictable Snes vote for best memories. Imported sne...

I'm tempted to get a PS3 for it.

You know, a PS3 with this game would sit quite nicely in a certain HI-DEF LCD cabinet. :D

Great! You might have better luck not using the literal translation. Try "slutty schoolgirl's pussy garden".

Re: My master's thesis re: Japan's game centers

I remember reading once that the arcades are heavily frowned upon by traditional Japanese culture as they destroy the yin and yang balance. It would cause great shame for someone of a certain age to be spotted in one. But, I just tried a quick search for anything about this and nothing showed up - ...

thanks for the further input. Got stuck with work today and didn't research the potential sites for the machine(s) as I planned. As allways with these things, there are more costs the more you learn about it, but I'm pretty much 50/50 about it at the moment ...Deadly serious though, don't get me wro...
