let me start with saying sorry for horrible pictures (from my iPhone).

But today I went on what must have been the shortest road trip!

it went like this, slept in late. Got a message from the seller on facebook that the game was on it's way. Got dressed, had coffee for breakfast, surfed the web, read some, shuffled the games close to the door around a bit, so that they where in the correct order (like a tower of Hanoi thing). then just waited around the apartment.

Then the phone rang to let me know that they where here. Took the elevator down and helped them unload my Atari 1988 Tetris and some marquees, some t-shirts (Swedish National Arcade collectors association, ARF - http://arf.arkadtorget.se/), key holders for my puckman game and huge Namco/Starblade controller thingy and a remake CPO (edit: Not Namco/Starblade).

In return I handed over my Afterburner (upright, http://www.klov.com/game_detail.php?game_id=6821) with a bad monitor (everything else working, and gem to coin up to listen to the noise and see the Lock-On and red head lights flash - but since the monitor was dead, it's better of with someone who can love it, more importantly fix it).

And that was that. I just stayed at home and got a working game (and goodies) in exchange for a game with a dead monitor. Today have been a great day.

(seller of Tetris was not the same guy that bought afterburner, he just traveled by my tetris with an empty car and I saw a great opportunity).

The game:
Tetris

The Marquees:

Total distance: 0 Km, just up and down 5 floors with the elevator.  Grin

Change the monitor with a good old hantarex 9000

if the flash lights freeze during the game it is a "normal" bug of the game and in case appear let me know so I can tell you how to fix it
