Pinball machines and English

That was interesting. I remember working at a place that assembled the lighting backplanes for these machines. I would get to play on the machines at lunch. Two of the memorable ones were Star Wars, The Adams Family and Last Action Hero.

Oh, and your English is just fine, and you might find Dave Morris' series on English idiosyncrasies a good listen, starting with

This pinball repair project sounds like so much fun. Thank you for sharing your experience. I am looking forward to your next podcast.

Also, please do not worry about your pronunciation of English words. It was easy to understand everything you said, and I listen at 1.5x speed.
