For Sale!
United's Gypsy Shuffle Bowling One of my more recent projects is this United's Gypsy shuffle bowling game. This machine was built in 1961 which is one year older than me. I remember playing these games back as a kid... and always liked them. And, for $75, how could I pass up a chance to restore one of these babies? Well, maybe the fact that it does not work might be a start... (frown)
About five years back I was looking for a pool table to be the center piece of a game room. A friend of a friend wanted to sell their table so I hooked up the trailer and drove to see the table. It was in bad shape - and even though they offered to sell it at a really low price (just to get it out of the basement) I would not have taken it even if it was free. But, they did have a similar offer on an old pinball machine. Haul it out of the basement and we will give it to you for free - it does not work anyway. My 10 year old daughter, who is quite the wizard with mechanical things, identified the problem in minutes - and we had a working pinball machine - well mostly. Here is what we did to restore this 1965 Williams Pot 'O' Gold pinball machine to its original glory! 1965 Williams Pot 'O' Gold pinball, I work for a large multinational corporation. My current job there is a Site Architect for many backend and frontend systems that support a fairly complex Web site. One of my primary responsibilities is IBM's eSupport site. Our eSupport site is a melting-pot of over 783,000 technical support documents all in one place!
I also write books. Not your normal pieces of fiction or history - no, no, no. I write technical ("nerdy") books called IBM Redbooks due to their historic bright red covers. Here are some of my titles: "Cool Title About the AS/400 and Internet", "IBM eServer iSeries IP Networks: Dynamic!" and "Who Knew You Could Do That with RPG IV? A Sorcerer's Guide to System Access and More". Goto my Redbook Finder and search for BRSMITH to find my work.Redbook: HTTP Server (powered by Apache)
