This thread is for anyone who, like me, is trying to get motivated to get organized. It'll probably be ON TOPIC to pinball at times. By starting a couple restoration threads on Pinside I did better at staying on task and completing things more efficiently. Now I want to find a place to talk about getting organized, getting more machines fixed and still maintain my sanity. Some people might start taking medication for this; I shall start a thread. This will apply to some games I don't care to start a dedicated thread on.
Here I can keep myself accountable and you can follow along or even join in with your struggles or progress. I want this thread to be free flowing which is why it's in the O/T forum of Pinside. Who knows what this thread will evolve/ or devolve into. Keep in mind we are O/T and NOT in the basement and I wish to keep it that way.
I'm not here to show off/up anyone and their collection or brag about how many standard size coil sleeves I have. Believe me I have several....bags...of them.
I might even share some stories about the days I fixed, and sold pinballs for a living to pay my way through college.
Little Johnny has volunteered to spread some upvotes around so we'll let him have the run the place if he wants.
