Lost in the Zone

Opinions, commentary, and anecdotes from one of the forum's most hopelessly addicted players. Covers both real and virtual pinball.

  1. The Power Returns...

    It's been nearly four years. It's time the Power comes back for another round.

    More tales of victory, vengeance, and woe from league play (once league starts up again on 9/12); more machine photography; and more real pinball in general. Less musings on moderation (I don't do much of that anymore) and software development (ditto).

    Personal league high scores from this season, for those who are interested. Note that most of them aren't all that high:
