"what I really miss here Jim is the main page & the Soda machine index...." 

AGREED.  Still my favorite site.  Facebook is not my thing.

I stop by once in a while.  Nothing like I used to.  Work, kids in college, etc., etc., etc.  Jim, you are one in a million for creating and maintaining this site.  Many, many thanks.

I will put this on my "to do list" for the fall...  May be a challenge as the database structures have changed alot from when SMC was first developed under the Joomla platform many years ago! I have heard the same sentiment from many people, "wish the soda machine reference section was back online"! I did have this information developed into a phone app; however, when A$$ple requested unrealistic features in "my" app, I only had the Android version leaving me defeated...
I will definitely look into getting the Soda Machines Section back online ! ! !

My six cents,

I check in at least a few times per week.  Obviously, some of the FB pages have taken over a lot of the traffic.  It seems to me that everyone on SMC was more interested in the hobby rather than flipping a machine for a quick buck.  Also, people were a lot more civil and willing to help someone that was new to the hobby.

Thank you Jim! cannot be said enough for the knowledge base and network that your website created.  Hope all the jerks are doing well!

We talked a long time ago. I may be able to help you get the other site back online with a MySQL database.
Let me know.

I don't check in like I should... still collect just not like I did... Other interest/hobbies now and family is getting older... our oldest got married last year and our youngest is starting college next week!!... where has time gone?
I pop in and read old post and look at the awesome finds from back in the day... the post of the shows in Chicagoland and the dinners and meet up sitting with folks, in person, man I miss all that...great memories.
But I'll still check in. Such a great site... such good people. Hope all are well.
