Happy Birthday @StevOz!

Hope you have a great day and year!

Users, feel free to use this thread (or start your own) to announce your birthday or to wish others your birthday wishes.

A little history, the old site from a year ago with VB listed all users birthdays that were on that day on the home page and I knew that this software also had this feature also but with some changes. I thought it was broken but I saw Today's Birthdays on the home page, have to investigate...

Cool happy birthday to me then! :pint:

Bought myself a new folding ebike a month or so ago, it's great and my only transport, gets me there and back no sweat.

Complete with after market ghetto blaster and plush ebay seat.

@Sleepy's Sister,
Thanks for sharing that, Kathy. :)

You know as I've been doing a lot of archiving & restoration around here the past year, I frequently bump in to Arne's threads and discussions. Usually, as I take a look again, there's good stuff for me to ponder or get interested in. He sure was quite a fascinating character.

I also kind of regret that I wasn't always mature enough to handle him. He had a heart of gold as I see it, but sometimes he could kind of unwittingly annoy me or get a little weird for me with various rambles. Lacking a certain amount of people-experience at the time, I wasn't always able to follow along effectively.

But, heavens, could he talk in great detail and length about any number of subjects, not a few of them quite over my head! Which is why it's so much fun to re-read his stuff here.

Also... dare I broach it... I think the one or two areas I was most confused by was the "Hollywood hazing" stuff, and/or all the alleged stolen idea / patents of his. I'm not sure how much Arne discussed it with family, but he would bring it up here a lot, pretty much out of the blue, at times.

In any case, I do miss him. I think he'd be a lot of fun to talk to these days, as I work away on my site-restoration stuff.

Come to think of it, he used to have a site a long time that I had bookmarked on a different machine. It wasn't just pinball-related, but included some other stuff, IIRC. Wish I could figure out what the URL was, but all I can say right now is that I think it was called "Sleepy's Stuff" with a big blinking eye graphic.

Anyway, Kathy, how's it going on your end? Feel free to drop by sometimes and say "hi!" I'm not sure we ever heard about how the music project worked out for... your grandson, was it?

Happy Birthday, JP!

I have more stuff to research about birthday displays now that I'm more confused, I noticed that JP is currently listed in the Members section for birthdays but it isn't displaying on the front page yet. I'm mentioning "yet" because you are 1 day ahead of me right now and he is listed as 2/25?

I somehow remembered a 12 year old thread about this!

I suck at bonus points but I'll guess Scared Stiff but I'm using a listing of his Resources that are currently assigned to him.

Regardless, time to post the old pinball birthday cake image that I found years ago!

Wrong @JonPurpleHaze

Hint #1

It was an original.
Wha~at?
How many excellent pin-sim JP's are there, anyway?

I thought you weirdos were talking about JP Renault, i.e. Popotte!

JP Salas is... like... everything that Pacdude ever wished he could be, but... he hasn't posted here for ages! My point is that JP is our resident JP... er, quel non?

Actually I was wrong about the Rogue connection it was actually Pinball Originals or VP Originals as it was back then.

Hint #2

It was based upon an arcade game.

A update, it's past midnight for me and he now shows up on the home page! Still think it's strange that his birthday was in the Members section before my midnight...

Juan Pedro and Jean Pierre are the same (spanish - french).
Concerning JP, I think it's an original about Smurf (strange, isn't it?).
