Quoted from sj1000:

Even if childish bloggers call me an idiot or a troll.

When they clearly should be using "and"

Well, I'm in on SE#607, and my take is it will come when it comes. I'm not risking an amount of money that I care too much about, and I don't feel the need to ask any so called "hard" questions. I've actually got some empathy for anyone who actually goes out into the world and fking tries to do something. I'm trying to get together a shitty little light project and its taking me freaking months longer than I anticipated. The R&D budget has been blown out of the water and STILL things keep popping up out of nowhere to get in the way of things. Fck knows how hard it must be to keep development and production of entire machines on track. I don't know why ANYONE who is making a serious go at trying to get something done in this world would take the time to answer to some pissant knowitall with "hard" fking questions. They would generally just be too fking busy, doing something.

Quoted from PinChili:

I would hate to see more pinball fans get hurt.

I'll be ok thanks.

The longer it takes to get here, the longer I don't have to tell the missus I've bought it.

Quoted from pinmanguy:

While he can do what he wants it really puts me off when someone running a business acts like that on the net. I understand it's frustrating and he probably has numerous people asking silly questions or making claims all the time but replying with belittling and snarky comments turns me right off.

I tend to agree with you, but I'm actually starting to disconnect Jack with the machine. I bet he's been diluted further than we know. I wouldn't be surprised if the company moves on into the future without him. Just thinkin' out loud.

Quoted from Ballypinball:

Well as a share holder how can it continue without him?

Same way it happened to Steve Jobs. He can still be a shareholder, just not involved.

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

If he has received a cash injection, shouldn't he announce? Even if he has been diluted big time, a cash injection is a positive.

Parts for equity is not cash, and not good.

Quoted from Goronic:

I do like the 'eye' lights in the Smaug toy. However, I wish they could have some sort of metal? shielding around the light so the light doesn't shine through the top of toy. I think it takes away from the effect if it shines through the top of the head.
If possible it would be great if the lights could be focused outwardly (sort of like a headlight housing) so that the eyes have a bit of a beam to them. That would look amazing

Oh man, my wife still doesn't know this is coming. I'm in so much trouble.

Quoted from RobT:

I have been seriously considering doing the same thing in order to get a Hellcat.


C'mon Rob. You know you want to get to work with the colour saturation on that photo. More green!

Quoted from Plungemaster:

Lol, i got downvoted cause i gave a troll an auto-eject link.
How sad.

Probably just misunderstood I think. A bunch of non-trolls probably clicked it and got booted out. I could see how that might upset some. I clicked it without thinking too much and found myself outside the gate. "Ha, lol" was my reaction, but...

I find the waiting very similar to waiting for anything to happen during the movies. It's all about theme integration.

I hope Peter Jackson is f@cking happy that he has taken a machine of this quality and hobbled it by not letting the ball touch his precious dragon.

Quoted from Goronic:

So true...JJP wanted to do more but wasn't allowed. Smaug breathing pinballs and other interaction would have been very nice.
