    Spent the last week making some major upgrades to the website and with the release of our Automated Download Service and the Upcoming GBA video snap set, I felt like celebrating. So if you have been holding off installing video snaps in your Front-End wait no longer!

Want to help a museum?

New forum member asbestosforlunch is asking for some ideas:
    Hi I volunteer at a museum in central New Jersey, and I am working on an exhibit which I believe could be improved with MAME cabinet-type equipment and software. The exhibit is a Cold War era fallout shelter, which is stocked with old Civil Defense rations and other supplies. I also have a computer connected to a large television and a surround sound system, for the purpose of displaying movies and sound clips. Because someone cannot always be at the exhibit when the museum is open, I am trying to make it somewhat autonomous, or at least idiot proof.

    My idea is to use arcade controls to limit what someone could do with the computer, and use a front-end to block out the rest of whatever OS I would be using. A friend of mine recommended this site to look for help when he heard my basic idea. When I started reading out the material used for this, it sounded perfect. I'm not sure I'll ever build a MAME cabinet, but I do have two pinball machines in the basement :)

Jump in if you think you have an idea or two that could help!

Free Portal!

You've probably seen this, but for those who haven't -- Hoopz let us know that Steam has Portal available for free from now until the 24th. I haven't played, but I'm told Portal is one of the "must try" games out there. Some folks don't get it, some folks love it. Steam is a download gaming service with a small client that runs on your machine to handle the licensing. Supposed to be fairly unobtrusive. I usually resist such things but for free...?
