I am also an arcade addictive - fan !
I collect arcade pcb's (among other things) and have more or less 50 or 60 of them and an "Exerion" dedicated upright cabinet made from scratch... by me !
The crown jewel of my collection is an Allied Leisures' "Paddle Battle" pcb, dated from 1973. It is a fine copy of Atari's "PONG", the game that started all !
My hi score initials, are "GEO" and "007"

KLOV (The Killer List of Videogames) is a great website. I've submitted many photos of games to them... And I usually link any handheld based on an arcade game to the games entry in KLOV.

Also, for those that collect arcades, I would recommend joining VAPS (Video Arcade Preservation Society).
http://www.vaps.org/
Basically, it's an online inventory of your arcade games (dedicated, and boards only), which is apparently part of KLOV now... Didn't know that. It's cool because you can see how many others have a game you have, and you can find people that have games you might want (you can list them as being 'for sale'). Also, if you are having a problem with a game, they may be able to help you out... Here's my entry if you want to see what I have:

(Finally got that F-14 Tomcat pinball I've wanted for years!)

I had a VAPS entry..but it got wiped out back before the site got absorbed into KLOV. Guess I should go make a new account and update my info.

That happened to a friend of mine... They send out 'auditing' Emails once a year I think, if you don't respond to the Email (or log into your account in over a year) they assume that the Email is invalid, or you don't exist, and delete the account... Since my friend ignored the Emails for over a year, they killed his account.

If you change your Email address, that can happen pretty easily I suppose.
