You guys have til morning to do good. This was the first order in the last 24 some odd hours. Let's try to squeeze in a few more.

#152 17 days ago
Quoted from TallGuy:

While it might not be "acceptable" in our current state, I'd like to be able to shake Lloyd's hand...

What's "acceptable" isn't always admirable; I hope you get over there and see him in person - it'll do you both good.

#153 16 days ago

It's been a beautiful 14 days. I went to the post office this morning to mail out the remaining 10 orders. Due to your incredible generosity, $625.40 USD have been transferred to Lloyd with all the decal sales. We couldn't have done it without you. With this said it's never too late to send LTG a few more bucks by sending donations directly to him until he can open up shop and keep the phone line open to answer all your tech questions.

In these tough times let's stick together.

Now time to go play a bit of pinball.
Cheers

When is Lloyd-Con (Lloydfest, Lloyd-a-Go-Go)? You know, that multi-day event we buy $$ tickets for, hosted at SS Billiards, benefitting the LTG foundation? Swap meet in the parking lot, t-shirts, signed translites for machines he gave advice to fix? After all this pandemic business to be sure. But put it on the calendar and I’m down for my first visit to MEGA-SOTA!

At some point the Pinball Circus will return. Though with the current situation it may be way off in the future. My 50th Anniversary party may come first. The Golden Goose !

Just listening to the governor it seems Minnesota will start opening more businesses in four phases starting June 1st.

No hard dates on phase 2, 3, or 4. I believe they will keep an eye on how things go.

So I would guess a good month or more for me as I'm in phase 4.

Which brings me to post in this thread. I'll be able to weather this storm thanks to all the help and generosity of people on Pinside and in the community.

My sincere thank you to all who contributed. That will give me a fighting chance to get through this.

Thank you for all the support and kind words !

Lloyd let us know if you need more help. Remember, don't feel like this is charity. Consider it repayment for all the free help you have given throughout the decades. You deserve it. We are all happy to help out.

#162 12 days ago

I don't know you ltg and likely will never be in your area, but you've helped me on the forums here to troubleshoot my pin problems. PM me your PayPal address, I'd be glad to help with expenses.

Oh neato! Just saw this thread for the first time somehow!

Are those POTC cannons still around? Either way, I definitely wanna donate a few sheckles Lloyd's way. He's not just an amazing tech, but a phenomenal human being!

If things start getting dicey please reach out and say so (publicly or privately). Some of us are fortunate enough to have jobs that allow us to work and are happy to help out others who are not as fortunate.

#165 12 days ago

PM’s sent to all for your kind interest in helping the Great LTG! It’s going to take more then Covid to take away our pinball lifeline!

Happy to do the cannons deal - Lloyd was amazing to me during the early wozecle days. Pm sent

We need a PayPal total to get us excited....
...then time to donate again....

#168 10 days ago
Quoted from spfxted:

We need a PayPal total

flashinstinct sales came in twice. $221.20 and $404.20. Pinside refunded their fees of $18.20. For a total of $643.60.

People also donated here, on Facebook, stopped by, and bought gift certificates. And an amazing marble. ( see pictures ) and Rick from Planetary Pinball Supply sent a bunch of parts. Before all this I also sold the Bill Paxton pinball machine.

A huge thank you to all for the support and kind words !

Couldn’t agree more. I bought some gift certificates from Lloyd back in early April that I really never plan to use (even though I’m somewhat local). I told myself at the time that the price i paid was a pittance of what I’d have to pay a tech to come out to my place to diagnose some problems. This is absolutely NOT charity in my mind, but rather paying back a debt that I owed for some time.

Now you can proudly call yourself the first to bring it up.

#173 10 days ago

Please stop with this crap. You have been booted out of every thread including your own for this. If you have ANY consideration for LTG please just leave and don’t contaminate This thread is dedicated to Lloyd. You already pitched this Everywhere else please go There!

#175 10 days ago

Affordable donation sent to LTG.

Since this is a thread to help HIM out after he has offered so much to so many for so long, and is about paying a little of that back personally to him(not specifically for any one business or thing), let's keep this thread to that.

Thank you for all the fun and wisdom and help Lloyd!

#176 10 days ago

Lloyd didn't ask for anything. I took it upon myself to start this thread. This is not a handout. This is me saying thank you.

Thank you so much for your generosity in time and skill! Definitely happy to contribute, and will look for more of your work down the road!

Praise everybody involved in helping out!

When you gentlemen see a clear duplicate account like XeXPinball was just let us know. A brand new account posting about older pinside Threads is a pretty clear giveaway.

So... how close are you to the riots? Hopefully not too close!

#183 4 days ago
Quoted from clodpole:

So... how close are you to the riots? Hopefully not too close!

Was about 8 miles. St. Paul is farther east. This morning Uptown was hit, so that's about 5 miles.

Target closed all their stores in the Twin Cities. There was rumors of threats against the Knollwood Target, which would be about 3 miles. And rumors of Minnetonka or lake Minnetonka area.

I hope it quiets down fast. Small businesses have enough issues right now without looting and fires.

Quoted from jbovenzi:

Ordered a set of Stern and Bally/Williams stickers.
Good luck to LTG! Hang in there in these tough times. I have helped out several Pin folks here in CA due to the shortage of customers because it's important to me to keep these businesses going.

Got the stickers today! Thanks for doing this and sending the stickers!

#185 2 days ago

Just pointing out an observation. Lloyd, you sir can’t catch a break but your are clearly tough as nails. Recession, 8 month road to business shut down, an epidemic, and now state wide looting and rioting. Seriously, you can’t catch a break but you never loose your spirit or drive. I personally would have hung out the white flag but you keep going. Bravo to you and your love of this hobby.

Thank you for the trip down memory lane.

You left out video game fad bubble burst and the No Smoking.

Stay safe Lloyd. Hope all is well with you, and I’m glad we could help. If you need me to, I’d be happy to drive out and sit watch out front of your store with a few “metal friends” with banana clips.

Or at least a sword or two if you want to kick it old school GOT style.

Watched a video of some kid that apparently brandished a sword, I think defending some store last night. He was literally left in a fucking pile of blood, twitching, after getting stomped by about 8 random assholes that ran away and left him there.

So yeah, don't bring a sword to a gunfight, err riot.

Agreed, you can't defend a storefront from a mob. Unless the National Guard or US Army is right there, I'd get the hell outta Dodge with my pets, money, and small possessions that would fit in the car. Maybe head to Ft. Dodge, Iowa.

I'll speculate that most of the insurance carried by small businesses won't cover civil unrest But if a looter gets injured inside your business or a gas line explodes and they get killed (or worse, just injured) they will try to sue the living shit out of you.

Everything still staying away from your business Lloyd? I hope so. While I'm here can you please PM me your paypal? I've been in and out of the hobby since the early 2000's and you've been a constant source of information/help throughout.

So far. Maybe 4 to 5 miles east of me.

Thank you !

Yelobird beat me to it. I appreciate your thinking of me and the support. Thank you !

I'm in Phase 4 to reopen. Phase 2 starts tomorrow. No time frame for Phase 3 or Phase 4 yet. I am concerned with the last few nights shenanigans, that in a couple weeks we'll see a spike in new virus cases, delaying things further.

Every state is different but hoping when you do open you can turn the machines on. My son, back in State College, PA, said places around him were able to open but arcade machines weren't allowed to be turned on yet.

But I handle swords like Wade Wilson in X-Men origins. So I’m not sure gunfire would be a problem.
