As far as I know, it went nowhere. I looked at the shell I had brought down there over a year ago, and was going to find a way to dispose of the electronics and give the frame to a buddy so he can build it out.
I lost interest in the MAME side of things after spending a while with with the software and remembering why all my console systems get played for a few hours and then end up on a shelf. I like PC gaming, and while arcade is where I started, after a few rounds of the same screen I lose interest.
So having said that, if you want he shell, speak up, I am guessing the electronics can go, so I will find a way to dispose of the tube and boards.
I like the idea of a couple games down there, and will bring in the Atari all in one retro unit if I can find the box it is in, and I also love the idea of a video display system.
I think the video display system could be expanded to have the basic tour type video's that Videoman has done, as well as a nickel tour for prospects. But also start to build reference videos about woodworking, metalworking, electronics and the like. This could be done by just setting up links to other sources, and creating specifics for our stuff. I had talked with OttoPM about taping segments of his CNC setup for his class (to be used as future review) but I have slacked on that do to other priorities.
I have a 3CCD camera (Not as good as videomans, but it does work) that can be used to record straight to a firewire port (read mac, for the most part) an that could be used to record our content for any project / machine. But we should walk first and have a playback system first, for local playback at the HF.
