The Replay Foundation, my employer, announced their liquidation today. This means no more Pinburgh. It also means I'm Officially out of a job for the forseeable, so if y'all wouldn't mind boosting a link to my other source of income Improbable Island, that'd be just super.

improbableisland.com

It's a silly online game and it doesn't pay as much as fixing pinball machines but heck it's what I've got right now, and this winter's probably gonna be a hairy one.

@ifixcoinops Oof, sorry man. We've never met afaik but I enjoyed going to ReplayFX when I lived in Pittsburgh, and have enjoyed following along your adventures in Pinball restoration.

Best of luck figuring things out, and I'll take a look at improbableisland!

@ifixcoinops In case you don't already know about them, hackpgh.org are probably your kind of people, and some of the folks there might have leads on your kind of work.

Disclaimer - most of the people there when I was there have similarly wandered off by now, but afaik it's still the same kind of community as before.

@ifixcoinops Jeez, I'm sorry. I was looking forward to seeing you at a future Pinburgh and trying to have a less-awkward encounter.

Hoping for good news for you (and the other Replay folks) soon.

@Austin_Dern Heheh, it's never gonna be not-awkward meeting me at RFX, I run on 4 hours' sleep a night the whole week of the event, I'm basically only capable of grunting and shocking myself. :P

Heck I dunno, maybe I'll open an arcade one day. :)
