Observations

Yup, just like everyone else who get's into this sort of thing, I got nostalgic looking at all of the MAME cabinets on the examples page of BYOAC, so I decided to go ahead and try to make my own arcade machine.

This has been a work in progress for the last 3 years, because I think I may have some type of starting-projects-and-never-finishing disorder.

I started with some guidelines that I wanted to follow:
