      Hi Damien,

      Nice to hear from you mate. It looks like the Flash Gordon is in a good home, hope its behaving itself.

      Thanks for the invite but no need to buy lunch mate - thanks anyway. As it stands we will be going to South West Rocks for a week (fingers crossed) and maybe Harrington on the way back. We may check out Coopernook hotel for a looksee as they have caravan parking out the back so i'm told. See how we go for time I guess. Also want to check out Crowdy Head.

      It would be great if you can make it to Pinfest and you can get an idea of the roadtest the FG has been through. Hopefully see you there,

      cheers Jeff

  2. These just rocked up for the missus
  3. Oldhank That would be brilliant Im hoping to get up that way in a month or so it would be great to have a drink n discuss pinball lego and just shoot the shit in general with a like minded person I dont think the new owners of the Fed have any pins on site come to think of it i dont think the old owner did either but with a bit of luck that might change by the time i get up that way like i said it would just be brilliant to have a drink n a chat i look forward to it and will let you know when im gunna be up that way cheers
  4. Go to the coopernook hotel for lunch have a few schooners place a few bets on the nags and then do the same thing at the Federal hotel in Alstonville crikey i love that pub the missus and i had been planing before covid hit on going to England to take a trip on the grand union canal and then onto Scotland for a trip on the scotish canals and do the falkirk wheel should that not come to pass then i will be just as happy going to pinfest or having friends round to have a few games of pinball a few drinks and a good feed the simple pleasures
  5. What happened to Stiff Shitt? He dried out died and became known as Dead Shitt
  6. I played i my first game of pinball when i was 5 years old friends of the family just down the road had a gotlieb mustang right from that very first game i was hooked n thought then that one day i would have my own pinball machine and as many as i could get my hands on when ever i was down at their place i was always pestering them for a game flashing lights rolling ball buttons to press scores to beat loved the sounds of the score reels turning over fun fun fun then fifteen years later when i bought my first pin it did raise my parents eyebrows and the question was asked what the hell are you doing wasting money on such things for you should be saving for a house it was something they said to me quite often which i regularly ignored and spent my money on what ever i wanted its funny because i am now saying the exact same things to my mates kids save your money n buy a house i suspect that it falls on deaf ears just like it did when my olds used to say it to me i did point out to my parents that the pinball machine was an investment and if i sited it somewhere it would make money but i think they knew i had no intention of putting it somewhere where it could make me money i also made the argument that it would save me money because i wouldnt be pumping coins into somebody elses game they just smiled shook their heads n walked away i have never had more than 3 pinballs at any one time even when i was homeless i still had one machine at a mates place i only have 3 pinballs now but like Railways sez there is always one machine in the back of your mind that you have always wanted but prices these days do seem to be rather excessive i will pay whatever is being asked for a machine if i think it is worth it and not even bother about haggeling but crikey ive seen a few of late asking 20 gand for a pinball machine thats a lot of the folding to fork out the missus dose come out n play a game of doubles every now n then and she dose genuinely enjoy playing them she dosent have the passion for for pinball that i do whenever i say to her i would like to buy another machine she replies not another bloody pnballmachine but she knows and realizes and has even said to me recently what a good investment they are just based on the amount of time i spend playing them
  7. Ive never been to Pinfest but have been stinging to get there for years so bugger it i am going this year cant wait to get there finally it will be worth the wait i reckon
  8. That would look sweet n come up a treat ive been meaning to get a light kit for the trains n also a motor for the rollercoaster lego love it
  9. Gday n welacome to AA Mustang was the fist pinball i ever played back when jesus played fullback for jerusalem been hooked ever since

I loved the transfomers cartoons when i was young un still do allways wanted starscream never got him i did trade a 5 litre bucket of lego for soundwave half of the door that held the cassettes in was broken off but that didnt bother me as i didnt have any of the cassettes i was gunna get them all loved laserbeak i cant remember what the other cassettes are called i brought a really good optimus prime in malaysia got drunk n left him in a cab in penang
  11. Its the mighty Flash Gordon for me not only is it bolted to the floor but has grown roots it was the first pin i owned had to let it go when i moved to Darwin took me 17 years acquire another one i love and enjoy playing it so much i could never part with it again its therapeutic the old Pinbot always puts a smile on my dial and altho i dont play the Data East Star Wars as much as i used to i still enjoy playing it they are all keepers i reckon they have to be they are the only pins ive got
  12. BEAKER the two old guys on the balcony gonzo fuzzy the bear the call outs would be brilliant i think Boof Head put up pic of a mock up Muppets pinball cab a while back if they ever did do the muppets it would be the only pin the better half would ever let me fork out so much of the folding for a new machine the muppets love them
  13. Labyrinth would be an awesome theme for a pinball i reckon

  15. I Know absolutely nothing about crypto currency but one thing i am pretty sure of is that we are heading for a cashless society which is a shame because i love the rare feeling of occasionally having a fistful of the folding in my sky rocket
  16. go to your profile  on your current pic there will be a little icon on the corner of it click on that and then a screen will come up asking to choose to ethier drag a photo or up load one  i choose the fist option which is upload one then i clicked on up load a single file so have your pics in a file thats easy to access 

  17. so you haft to resize your pic u might get lucky and your pic is  500 gigabytes or under your pic should say usually at the bottom how many giga bytes it is thats why its a good idea to have a few pics ready to  because sometimes they just dont look as good as they do normal sized so once the your pics are at sized at 500 gig or slighty under then

  18. sure mate it takes a while to work out n im sure there is an easier way but im not the most it savy so i will try and explain how i did it first i got the pics i wanted in case i wanted to change it into a new folder because it will only take a picture size of 500giga bvtes hang on more to come in a sec

      sorry to bother you but i only just realized that i said it will only take a pic the size of 500 gig or less i meant to say is it will only take a pic size of 500 kilobytes or less not 500 gigabytes n its the same for the cover photo hope you are having a great day

      Naaaaaa, Shit of a day.....


      Brisbane entertainment Centre has asked me to supply labour to remove vinyl in a toilet block that has shit spewing from the sewer.

      Try convincing a contractor to do this work normally is bad enough.

      But this centre has become a major covid injection site and who knows how many people have added their contract chasing to the Shit Pit. 




      You did ask?
