Spider Man ?

Aren't Stern now the sole remaining company making pinball after the exit of Sega?

 

Can't remember what my first game played was - probably sometime around the mid-late 1970s which would mean it was pre solid-state.

Yep, Spiderman

I have had the machine for about 10 years, great game

 

pinball has had a bit of a resurgence over the last 5 years, Stern is still the big dog, but a New Jessy company is nipping at their heels with some interesting games

there is also 5 or 6 boutique companies bringing out games

It's a pic of a 2kilo gold nugget found near Ballarat the other day ... I reckon @TheManFromPOST needs to get another hobby ! 🙂

I can pretty much bet both my testicles that  wasn't found near Ballarat. These guys will not report findings locations because the area gets inundated with every man with a detector. I also know that the dealers have nuggets in their safes that are suddenly "discovered" when business is quiet.

Only going by the article there ^^. It says found outside  of Ballarat obviously and the finder is keeping incommunicado , so you could well be right. I would just lurve to be the one holding / owning that nugget is all.

Locals keep looking for nuggets around my town but the area is alluvial gold, not nuggets but some clown said he found a small nugget and idiots descended from everywhere. He actually found the nugget in outback WA, about 4000 Km away.

Yes. Apparently some still find alluvial stuff up north  near the Palmer River too.

I just really enjoy the look and feel of it ;)

I was not aware back then that there was a Ballarat to buninyong line, or that there was 5 stations inbetween
