Arcade Lifestyle / Paperboy for iPhone
« on: May 01, 2011, 03:30:19 AM »
i quite like having old games on my phone cos it looks kind of cool to me having the little icon there, i have namco for the pacman logo, i dont play it, its not much fun because of the controls and ive found any arcade game i've tried poor to play because of the controls to be honest.
however paperboy is quite playable with the full tilt controls selected, the sounds are pretty good too, give it a try while its free.

Technical Area / Need help finding an electronic terminal
« on: April 19, 2011, 11:31:14 PM »
Hi fellas
bear with me i don't know how to get a good photo of what i need so i'll try and describe it.
i need a crimp terminal or similar which will attach physically to a material on one side of the crimp then to a wire as normal at the other end of the crimp.
i want it to have little spikes maybe that will bite through the material to attach to, when squeezed with a pliers or something. it is to attach to electroluminescent tape if that helps at all.
i don't know what terms to search for so any suggestions gratefully welcomed

Hello all
I've just recently started using this service, it's free online/cloud storage, (cloud storage means it syncs between the devices you choose)i have it on my laptop, mac and iphone.
you get 2GB free normally, if you join through my link we both get a extra .25GB, when you join you do a few things to get a bit more storage, this doesn't involve inviting people if you don't want to.

it did occur to me it may be useful to us here in a particular way, say we wanted to have an easy way to share artwork, someone could set up a folder and invite others, each time one of us added a file to that sharing folder it would instantly be shared with all the members of that sharing folder, could be handy i thought

anyway, i think its pretty useful due to my work travels, maybe its of use to you

here is my link

Hello all
i have an electric piano which i'm guessing is gonna have pcb's in it.
the problem is when i plug it in the following happens, it works for a short while then buzzes horribly then goes silent, re-booting(switching it off and back on ) fixes it for a few seconds then eventually the reboot doesnt work. leave it for a day and you get a few seconds from it and back to the cycle again of it failing
. i know nothing of electronics, is there a component that i should start to look for when i try to fix it, something that fails in that way if that makes sense, maybe power supplies heating up will fail like this? i've no idea
any suggestions gratefuly recieved. :)

Arcade Lifestyle / Namco portal for iphone
« on: August 04, 2010, 02:02:27 AM »
pretty much as the title says, dunno if its been mentioned before here

i dont think the games work that well to be honest, some may be better than others, but.....
you do get quite a cool pacman pic for the app so the pac fans at least may like it for that

 :-* :-*

All the rest / it's all about me me me (and my iphone)

ok, so its time for another request  :P

on the iphone it is possible to save a webpage link to the homescreen, a one click link to the page, so it would be like having an app for DLF  on my phone, this would be so cool for us iphone users

instruction copied from another forum;
All you need to do is create a square 45 x 45 pixel icon  .PNG image and save it as apple-touch-icon.png and put it in the root directory of the forum hosting. The iPhone OS will automatically give it round edges and the glass effect.

any chance bruno please  :-* :-* :-*

Dragon's Lair / Space Ace / daphne , linux, and a not too special laptop
« on: August 03, 2009, 04:33:34 PM »
hello all, wonder if anyone can help me with some of my questions
ok lots of QUESTIONS here

i have an old windows 98 laptop and the correct dvds, going to put linux on it as daphne wont be good with win 98 i understand. want to use the daphne downloader to do it all.
so first question, WHAT LINUX DISTRO SHOULD I USE?
the laptop seems to have 2 hard drives totalling about 5.5GB, IS THIS ENOUGH FOR DRAGONS LAIR 1 +2 AND SPACE ACE ,  i seem to remember the torrent was about 3GB.
next HOW DO I DOWNLOAD THE TORRENT TO THE OLD LAPTOP? could i network it to another computer with a cable? for example.
also i would need to verify the dvds could i do this again by networking ideally to the dvd drive in my mac.

please assume i am an idiot if these are stupid questions, because as far as computers are concerned i am an idiot  :D

really appreciate any pointers anyone can give, cheers


All the rest / my next request please

im not quite sure how to explain this, but in IE and firefox in the browser address bar and in the tab in firefox , before the address is a little logo of the website, well on lots of websites anyway ;)
i use firefox and you can have a favourites toolbar with the little logos as shortcuts (if you choose to remove the text) you just get a toolbar of logos which i really like.
this site doesn't have the little logo, would it be hard to add bruno? i know nothing about doing it but i would love to have this site on my toolbar.
 :-* :-* :-*

edit when i say would it be hard to add, it sounds like im saying cmon its easy do it, but i have no idea how difficult it may be so i hope it doesnt sound rude and demanding
added please to the subject line too

Arcade Lifestyle / A good price neon sign for your gameroom ?
« on: January 25, 2009, 12:47:03 AM »
Found this today , sorry if you've all seen it, you can choose letters/numbers to make your own gameroom sign, good price i think for a neon sign, just $4 per letter plus a ballast for $20 that does 20 letters.
neon sign

All the rest / forum idea , please.

Hey bruno

is there any way that photos in threads can be in the form of thumbnails or small pictures that you click on to see a bigger picture. some of the threads can take so long to download , my half meg connection is crying in pain ;)

 :spaceace:  ( i think we must use this logo in every post even if we dont need to ;D )
