Not sure what he had for lunch that day

I completely over-ate that that delicious mac & cheese joint not far from Reciprocal, so it could've been that.

Honestly, it's pretty creepy how much the internet will tell you about someone by stringing together a few bits of public information. I'm taking a break after finding his home, phone number, his ex wives, etc..

I didn't mind sharing the carwash thing because it seemed like more fraudulent behavior and misappropriation of investor funding. Plus now you guys can have fun with Breaking Bad memes.

What if the plan all along was start manufacturing machines from within the prison? What if it's called "octo manufacturing" because the prisoners have to be chained together? Like in the chain gangs.

Here are a few old ones to bring back memories of the other asshole involved in this scam. Think aboot the NDA'a this guy made "customers" sign had. I wonder if by chance he had the SEC target draft those NDA's as a precursor to their "partnership"?[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

The picture of that “payment coupon” is revolting. It’s actually nauseating and makes me angry.

That's probably also the extent of the bookkeeping or invoicing as well.

I remember some discussions that took place during the lawsuit against JPop/Zidware, and I think I remember someone saying that JPop alleged that it was his wife who had all the money in the family, and she bought the Range Rover.

This was done building Class-8 Commercial platform trailers. Ironically, in Texas (Tennessee Colony) around 2005 and lasted for a few years.. The Company/Partnership was able to undercut the big guys trailer prices using low cost Prison Labor. The prison system was paid as well and prisoners who wanted to better themselves learned a trade which helped upon release.

I had to go there to provide system training. Weird when you need to go into a prison without being a convict.

A story heard in many a pinball transaction -- "I'll have to check with the wife before I pay up."

The zidwarepinball.com website is still up. It lists an email CONtact as well. I wonder if JPop is getting those emails?

I did some land surveying inside a women’s prison as a college intern. The movies I saw lied about what those looked like on the inside!

Looked like an elementary school with a bunch of women with bad haircuts sipping on cokes in the commissary.

I worked there. No joke. First job out of college in 1996. My job ended w the FBI raiding the place, while I was still a trainee. Everything you see in the film is 100% balls on accurate. Even that scene. That is almost verbatim what the guy who interviewed us said, even to the throwing the car keys on the table.

Question..

When I go into work, every room is available to me. Conference room, kitchen, etc. So, if I'm a pinball programmer creating rules or a designer, wouldn't I want to look around and see what is happening in other rooms like manufacturing for example?

Is it me or shouldn't all of the employees at Deeproot be held somewhat accountable to the status of the company as a pinball company? Without question, they are NOT responsible for how RM spent the $'s. I have no clue how my previous employers spend their $'s and pay employees. I just know every two weeks, I got a pay check. In deeproots case, it was from Grandma Sally.

I'm just saying...the pinball employees knew something, right? @ Kaneda to discuss

With all due respect, you mean setting up cabinets with blinking lights. Mainly using #455 flasher lamps.....

#23988 3 months ago

Thanks Ben for getting my name right with Kaneda. You could of just dodged the question, after the earlier comment about me being the fool. I will not be contacting JPOP in the near future. I am still working with multiple groups that want to produce Real Pinball Machines. Still lots of room for small groups to enter the market, & offer more choices.

I do not think you know who they are which is fine, & maybe you know others doing the same. There is no reason for me to go on about Deeproot being dead. & speculating any possibilities. We will see who picks up what when it comes up for sale. Likely more value on the video studio stuff, but some of the pinball info might be of interest to some people. Maybe they would get pleasure from burning what they buy to the ground, or just want a piece of pinball history (good, bad, or ugly) their choice!

I think unfortunately that even good employees when left directionless due to an clueless manager can easily end up producing nothing. A self directed employee who can just figure out what needs to be done to get the job to completion is a rare bird indeed. It’s not really fair to hold them complicit (except for JPOP). For sure they all signed NDAs and most weren’t probably even left by the time most of this played out from March onward.

Someone should eventually grab the domain when it gets abandoned and redirect it to Deeprot.com where the travesty that was this company is documented for posterity. In fact if anyone is looking to write the Netflix series this would be a good title to go with.

Quoted from Sidekick74:

Not necessarily. I once worked for a company that had manufacturing in china and mexico, only visited the mexico plant once in 7 years. All the new product was prototyped locally but I almost never saw how manufacturing figured out how to build it. And since Robert kept talking about "octo manufacturing" I would assume he had some plan to contract out the manufacturing.

if i worked at any company where i took a job because i was told we were going to create something great, and i got paid a fair amount of money regularly to work hard and do my job, all while being curious why things kept not going as they were told to me that they would, and being force fed constantly piling bullshit by the fraudulent sociopathic salesman who organized the whole thing to compensate for those failures and keep the charade going, yet i didn't know enough about that stuff to know that he was a fraudulent sociopathic salesman who had no chance at success, and then suddenly the rug got pulled out from under me, the job ended, my paychecks stopped, where i live is in question, the project was completely bust, now i had to figure out to do with my life and future, and somehow i have to now explain it to my friends and family, while not even fully understanding it myself, causing me a sever amount of self-doubt and depression.... the absolutely LAST THING i would want in the world would be some stranger, looking in on it for sheer curiosity, with absolutely no inside knowledge of the circumstances or way it all went down, going on the internet and proposing the idea that the employees had some sort of responsibility or hold accountability for what just occurred.

but that's just me.
