Over the last few months I’ve had tons of messages from readers of this blog asking about the lack of updates and all sorts of nice words so I think its time to address this officially here.
My interest in arcade repairs has pretty much dwindled down to nothing over the last 12 months or so and I have found myself finding a love for other hobbies which I am throwing myself into and loving them more and more.
That doesn’t really leave me with much free time for repairs and it certainly doesn’t leave me with any time to write up a detailed blog post about it either.
Right now, my official status on this is I wont be doing anymore repairs logs.
With that said I do put a lot of time and effort into dealing with PAL’s and will still be maintaining the WIKI and the blog will still stay with that too.

If the time comes that I wont be continuing with the site then it will either all be handed over to someone else that is willing to keep the information going or it will be saved and made available via other methods. I’m not going to let the last 10 years of work from myself and other contributors disappear.

Any of the other contributors can still post here if they wish and if anyone else wants to contribute then I will create an account for them too

I hope that puts a few minds at ease

  1. Hi Porchy,

    I have been following this blog since it was started, and I also do repairs on all types of arcade PCBs, and I am also experiencing difficulties as Covid-19 caught everyone by surprise and I hope you can continue with this Blog and if i can contribute in any way i am in the position, as you said “it is many years of work”.

    • Thanks for your kind words. Its been a lot of fun and I’ve made some great friends from it all too

  2. Bad news ! One of my favourites repair logs website if not THE one. I learned a lot by reading all thas was published here. I probably would not have been able to repair something on arcade boards without Jammarcade.

    Thank you very much for all the work done, thanks for the PAL database too, nothing like that seems to be avalaible elsewhere.

    I can understand, I also had other hobbies by the past and then moved on something else.

    Thanks again

  3. Thanks for everything ! this blog was my first check of the day 😉 love it

  4. This is my first stop for repair logs that has helped In many cases and many brain fart issues.

    Thank you for the years of dedication and a wonderful platform.

  5. You will be missed, Jon. I’ve enjoyed your logs very much. And later our friendly email correspondences, when I started repping myself. I’ve been out of the game myself for the past couple of years do to various personal reasons, but haven’t lost interest, yet. And I still hope to get started again some time.
