Quoted from Sunfox:

I know you aren't actually interested in this... but The Wizard of Oz is interesting in its sound production. Of course, everything was mono 1939, but instead of using the then-common movie practice of recording music by placing a single microphone in front of the orchestra, with WOZ they used multiple microphones placed all around the stage, each recording groups of instruments onto separate tapes. These were then mixed together into the mono master.
Those original recordings survived, and were used in the 90's to compose a proper stereo/5.1 soundtrack. Thus, although it was originally released mono, WOZ is one of the oldest movies with actual stereo sound.

Having acted in many movies and played in my fair share of bands, recording technique is always of interest to me.

Thanks for the info!

Quoted from Santeh:

Perhaps my loving and very intelligent wife, who just completed her second masters degree from an American University and is on tract to become a professor at a U.S. college (she is and has been an American citizen for some time), who was born and raised in Thailand might take exception to your thoughts.

Thanks so much for your post it means a lot considering the ignorance on this board.

You hit the nail on the head, I am not going to Bangkok for bar girls although I do know the concept. Not a vacation a mission for me.

To pinsiders who are smart the regular crew if you will. Sorry for my lame posts not going to happen again and it was all me. Sorry to JJp for being such an ass I took it way to far.not posting again in this thread I did enough damage .

Getting back to our subject.....its pretty obvious now that there will be no further dates announced until JJP says they are shipping "tomorrow". And it would appear as if that day is less than two weeks away.

Go JJP!!!!!! Nice work and contrats to the whole team. Naysayers be damned cause this thing is really gonna happen.

Wow just saw this post. I have saved this speaker for years from the older cinema in my town. I now have 7.1 Dolby Digital in my cinema but always thought it would be a cool speaker to show how movies used to work and sound. Here some pics of the speaker.

I fell in love not sure what will happen but pinball became less important I would say. I will spare you a lot of people who probably read my dramatic posts and went WTF star base ?

Somebody want to but my countertop commercial POPCORN machine?
Comes with an unopened case 50 pack of ready mix corn, 3/4 case of popcorn boxes and 3/4 case of bags.

It's been used at one block party and 5-6 football games.

Find WOZ stickers you can slap on the boxes to serve at your NIB opening party!!!

Ok so there's one good story of Thailand love, congrats.
Meanwhile David Carradine has a different story to tell

This is the saddest post I have ever read anywhere. Praying for you.

Starbase,

I think everyone deserves to be happy, to find someone they care about and who they can spend their life with. I don't think anyone is trying to piss on your happiness or insult Thailand, but the limited information you have provided us with sounds like you could be pinning your hopes on a risky proposition. I hope I am wrong and reading into things too much, but maybe you should temper your expectations? I am sending positive vibes your way, and hoping for the best for you brother.

As are we all. He's a grown man and I'm sure he knows to be careful.

#167 6 years ago

Thanks stargazer that is nice of you but you should pray for all the people that are going to be jealous. I pity them.

#168 6 years ago

Had to reread the title of that thread to remember what it was about!
Missed a few posts. Are you saying WoZ will be delivered to Thailand first !?

Six Phases Of A Project
1.Wild Enthusiasm
2.Total Confusion
3.Disillusionment
4.Search for the Guilty
5.Punishment of the Innocent
6.Promotion of the Non-participants
I laughed my ass off when I read this. Not against JJP, just thinking of project management.

LOL, my buddy pinball-is-great posted that in a thread last week and I used it in a memo I did this week. I thought it was perfect.

JJP made no such promise to Bumper Action. Jack cleared the air last night on his google groups forum. They asked for a shipping date and he gave them an approximate. The email from Bumper Action is the problem here ... not JJP.

Yea JJP definitely deserves the benefit of the doubt given their exeplary history of providing accurate dates for when the pin will be released to the public. Just having a bit of fun no need to get up in arms just a joke.

#172 6 years ago

I agree with RGR for the most part. Zero trust until something that is promised is followed through with.

Thanks for the info Sunfox very interesting WOZ fact.

#173 6 years ago

Well like I was not commenting on the trust part rather why they keep announcing a release date knowing that they would not be delivering them... Like wheres the benefit doing that???? Would it not be better just to inform the buyers etc of the progress of the game?

#174 6 years ago

Because sometimes the truth is worse than a lie. Who really wants to hear, "Hey, we have problems that we cannot identify, we don't know how to solve the problems we can identify, and, accordingly, we have no idea how long we will be holding your money."

Wonder how the burn-in is going.

Up in arms??? You must have me confused with someone else? I was just trying to clarify the issue - not defend anyone. I am Switzerland on this one!

#177 6 years ago

From reading between the lines I would expect the first production machine to arrive with a customer by Monday. Followed by a few more in the coming days
