Default Bet you're older than thirteen.....

It almost sneaked by, with its light blue 'ink', but I saw it anyway:

Happy Birthday, JonPurpleHaze!

Thanks for keeping this beacon of history alive

Be sure to invite Shiva in for Pinball Cake!

Ike;

Uh.....did I misinterpret my source, or something? In the 'Today's Birthdays' box on the front page yesterday, there was the name of JPH. Nothing alluded to his age, though, so I looked for a wise-assed comment to possibly elicit a chuckle---this website had its thirteenth birthday recently, did it not?

In immediate retrospect, it wasn't such an obvious parallel, but feeble-mindedness doesn't ensure relevancy in the minds of viewers/readers, does it?
Finding nothing better within the allotted twelve seconds, I just hit the button and moved on to the next fracas over at VPF.

Coily; that camouflaged Valentines Day cake looks pretty good, though.....


Gregg

Well, the Respect-For-Authors policy is in the news again, thanks to VP Cabs loading lots of tables (and roms?) into their products, angering at least a few authors as well as Paul/Noah; and a few others think VPF's Download Section should offer everything for a given table (multiple versions, multiple backglasses, media packs, you name it) in ONE FOLDER for downloading. Seems that the current system, which pretty much puts it all in one place, as results of.....a SEARCH for a title.....is insufficient, as multiple downloads are still necessary.

I don't mind the separate downloads, but then I don't DL in huge quantities.....

People are lazy. They don't want to work for their tables anymore. Damn kids...

VPCabs may be loading tables, but so is Virtuapin- despite what you hear. He's just playing nice now. I was in BBB chat when someone came in asking for help with their Virtuapin which came with tables.

What bugs me is the KoolAid they are serving there. The guys doing the most bitching sound like the residents of South Park complaining to the mayor.... I get the impression some are just in it for the anarchy.

I design tables for Brad, he's a decent guy, but Paul trashes his cabs every chance he gets. But it's home field advantage for Virtuapin there so it's all good. Brad's a business owner, not a forum guy, so he doesn't reply to what's being said about him.

(By the way if anyone spots an Impractical Jokers table at Comicon please let me know and take footage. It's the closest I'll get to being on tv).

Happy Belated Birthday.

Gregg, I think I appreciate the recap you and Itchy did on The Evil Empire even more than your POI recaps! It's all the fun, excitement and bitch-biting of the VP Universe without actually having to experience it! So there's a VP Cabs now, eh? A little taste of Dynasty over at Dot Org's Southfork Ranch? Well, competition's good for business! I glanced over to see if Arne had checked in. No luck. But some poor little babe in the woods is packing up his tables and stomping off because someone dared to take his illegal product and sell it! Those who don't learn from history are doomed to be a victim of it. I think it was 2006 when I saw my first VP CD-ROM for sale on Ebay. I'll bet Shiva has absolutely no stories of Trigon being illegally sold.
What a great age, Pinball Nirvana! You're gonna have hair growing on some crazy parts of your body. You're also gonna have to start washing your bedsheets yourself. Here's the hands-down best guide to your brand new year!
