    Quoted from rustybomber79:

    OK, OK "resurgence" was a bit strong, I should have just said surge or up swing or bump......

    I don't think "resurgence" was too strong at all.
    Recently, I was gifted a pin. After a full (and necessary) restoration, I'm addicted to the repair aspects. The nearly 30-year-old pin needed a great deal of TLC and I'm permanently fascinated. I've been looking around for other machines with which to become familiar. I may have recently offended another member here with a low offer for a very popular pin in the market (sorry boss - no offense).
    Dreaming seriously of my own theme.
    Perhaps there are others?
    Obviously so according to my research.
    In the meantime, I would like some more practice with working on systems other than Bally 1984 era. Computer code is STUPID simple - playfield art is priceless.
    I'm thinking an Alex Grey theme with TOOL as the soundtrack - like that's ever going to happen......
