I checked all my e-mails from 2002 to present and I don't recall anyone from MAME asking anything from me (I got some emails from Phil B, but that's about it) - odd because both Makaron and Demul have privately introduced themselves to me - and they got what they asked for.
Anyway end of the day - I work in the arcade industry, I like to keep my business side seperate from my social side, also time is money - I am expected to donate stuff for nil, I don't even use emulators.
I am pleased Guru gets the credit he needs - but then I am sure he isn't so keen to sell any of those Model 3 Step 2 PCBs he had photo on his blog - if he does I know a few Australian operators who would buy them.
I do partially supply MAME dumps, Thomas in Switzerland who sends stuff to Guru gets them from me to begin with..
