Looks like we had some Centurylink downtime this morning. Hurray! Sorry for the interruptions and thanks for everyone for checking in when the site was down.

Shameless Self Promotion
Hello all!  In addition to helping out with some admin duties around here, I also run a pinball blog called Credit Dot Pinball.  I had the opportunity to interview our beloved IPSND head honcho Jess Askey last week, and in my humble opinion it is one of the best interviews ever to appear on Credit Dot.  Very informative with a specific emphasis on the history of the IPSND!  Take a look by following this link.  Thanks for your time, and keep submitting those serial numbers!

Hardware Work Today
Im going to be moving my database server over to a new Virtual Windows Server 2008R2 box running SQL Server 2012 today, so the site may pop up and down over the day. Im also going to try and upgrade my ESXi machine from 5.0 to 5.5 today if I have time. That could go south pretty quick so I may put that off until I do some super-due-diligence and get all my backups in order first.

Serial Philosophies Run Deep
It has been a fun week with us getting lots and lots of submissions so thanks for everyone finding all these numbers. A few things have come up on the nudging the past few days so I wanted to put something up here about it and also talk about some upcoming changes. Firstly, be sure to hover over the little 'question mark' if you are a nudger and don't like the serial submisson, there may be notes in there that explain it a little better and us ADMIN's may even put some notes in there. I am going to change the nudge queue form, so that if there is a comment, that it will be visible with the serial number too.  Also, please be sure to NOT submit game parts as games, even if you see the part is from a Flash by it's ROM's or something, that unfortunately doesn't guarantee that the serial number was actually from a Flash at the factory. Don't worry about the points and anyway, one of us ADMIN's will probably remove the game association anyway. More to come on that topic in the future!! Thanks everyone!

1500 Backglasses
Rob uploaded the 1500th backglass image over the weekend.... Gay Time by Bally. We have most of the mainstream American and European games done and are just working backwards into the more obscure stuff now. We are prioritizing by games that already have submissions to fill in the remaining ones, but those get more and more challenging to find decent flyer images that can be used.

Happy New Year!
Hope that your 2014 was pretty decent and that 2015 is better... a couple updates for the new year...
  1. New Font for site: I liked Trebuchet and all, but I saw this new one and it actually seemed easier to read and was pretty snazzy looking too. Let me know if you have an opinion on it.
  2. We are up to 1410 Backglasses thanks to Rob's constant work.. everyone owes Rob a beer if you see him.
