About Coinop.org

Coinop.org lives on a dual Atom server running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and a few other Minimalist-hosted websites. The server sits on Kurt Koller's desk in his office.

Below is some information about the people that make this website a possibility.


Kurt Koller

Kurt played way too many games as a kid. Had he used the dollar cost averaging method of investing the money he blew on arcade games, he'd have retired by now. Kurt is the president of Minimalist, which is a technology consulting firm located in NJ. His company hosts this website, and part of his collection of arcade games is in the office.

Here are some outdated documents about Kurt Koller's arcade game collection. In addition, there is Kurt Koller's personal website for those interested.

 

Additional Contributors

The information below about additional contributors to this website is in no particular order.

Hilary Lantz

Hilary Lantz was the Director of Operations at Minimalist and helped out with organization and editorial on the site. She's not a big gamer, but she tolerates this nonetheless.

Frank Lantz

Frank is a game designer, and he's currently running a company called area/code. He has helped out with various aspects of the site: design, some content, etc. Frank lives and breathes games, but Kurt can beat him on almost every arcade game that they've played. Here is Frank's other website.

James R. Twine

In the early days, James wrote a lot of content for the site, and engaged in a lot of fact checking. James has an arcade-related mini website as well.

Dan Amrich

Dan was an editor at GamePro magazine for a long time, and one of the things he headed up the arcade writings. He was kind enough to include coinop.org in at least one article. Thanks, Dan. He is IN at least one arcade game (NBA Maximum Hangtime), and he has a game-related website as well.

Stephen Ryner, Jr.

Stephen used to run coinop.org, and created the pages for the St. Louis museum. He was unable to maintain it, and he transferred the domain to me, to which I owe him much gratitude. His website is nuthatch.com.

More Special Thanks...

Special thanks go out to Scott Anderson, Rodger Boots, Martin Crosley, Al Kossow, Jeff Lugar, Robert Morgan, Randy Rathbun, Al Warner and everyone else who has contributed. This site would not be what it is without the help of everyone mentioned above, and probably some additional people that we missed.
