Yeah,

I kind of wondered what was going on as well.

I take a vacation and come back to find the house deserted!

Where's the love?

Hey!

What, you didn't get the memo?

Oh, that's right... a certain message system at another domain edits out this URL from supposedly PRIVATE messages... :/

Welcome!

You know pretty much everyone... a couple old faces have new handles, but mostly it's same old, same old.

Hell, I didn't even know there was such a thing. After the old "unified" dealmac forum went away, I lost interest almost immediately and rarely checked any of the new forums.

Looks like I missed what was (apparently) a nasty fight, and frankly, I really don't care much about the particulars. Just glad to see the old community is still around in some form.

One more thing--if Jack Sharp, MCP is also over here, I don't want to hear about it...

Happened to see a reference to "Larry's forum" on the other site, and Googled a bit. Hmm, let me check... yep, that post is gone now.

Too bad, really. I've got no beef with Dan and company, but somebody made some not-great decisions over there...

Damn, we've all been hiding from you for the past month or so. Oh well, I guess you were bound to find us sooner or later.

Just kidding! Welcome to the party.

I just followed the link to the dealmac thread sscutchen posted & wasn't at all surprized to see the a-holes over there are still the same.

Not very far. I basically bought most of the major parts and then stopped. I have a cabinet, the computer, a monitor (very old 19" that I had stowed away for years), and a bunch of buttons and joysticks. The control panel is layed out but not drilled. That's it.

Since I really don't have anywhere to put a finished machine right now (the cabinet is in my storage shed) the project is on hold for the time being. I never bought the USB interface for the joysticks/buttons.

What are you talking about?

It's still there on the Mac Discussion page.

The hint on how to find this site is still there, too.

They're not pulling threads the way they were before.
