Quoted from SuperDaveOsbourn:
My question is why does the Detroit folks come and help out the out-of-town Chicago show boys on this stuff at all, to be good Samaritans, or to out show the show hosts? I see that RA is now on his own as a result, so its like saying you guys suck at what you do, called us in and we did most of the work, and now you can go blow yourselves and we won't be there any more. Maybe folks can stop pissing in each other's world and just get along for the sake of getting along. Egos, I'm guessing not.
That is a *really* weird post. Dude you have some issues.
As explained prior, when Rob Anthony didn't want to do Expo anymore, Pacak asked me to step into his spot. I did *not* want to do it, as i go to Expo to have fun, not to fix broken stuff. But Pacak really wanted someone there to do repairs, asked repeatedly, so i relented. Turns out some of the other guys from Detroit saw this as "fun", and we ended up with entire team of people to do repairs. In the end it worked out OK. I wouldn't want to do it every Expo, but every once-in-a-while isn't terrible.
As a history note, i used to do repairs at Expo Loooong before Rob Anthony showed up. Again Pacak asked me. It was different though, i was in the main vendor hall (not in that RA side room.) Did that for a few years and then told Pacak i didn't want to do it anymore. And that's when Anthony came into the scene (which i was thankful for, as i really don't want to fix games at a pinball show, again i'm there to have fun.)
