PHoF is great, but it's not the only place for pinball. The Pacific Pinball Museum (mentioned above) has 90 machines in the museum and about 800 more in storage. For the first weekend in October, they put on the Pacific Pinball Exposition at the Marin Civic Center with over 350 pinball machines set on Free Play (the PHoF machines are all coined). THAT is pinball heaven!
If you want really "old school", check out the Pacific Pinball Museum in Alameda, CA (near Oakland) - http://pacificpinball.org/. They have pinball machines from the 1930's to 2000's, with a big collection of "woodrail" and "wedgehead" games. No video games. Only pinball (and an odd electromechanical rifle game here and there).
The new Dell Mini running Unbuntu has Dell Video Chat powered by SightSpeed and can talk to other SightSpeed and Dell Video Chat clients running under Windows or Mac (and can also connect via a browser window). SightSpeed, however, hasn't released a stand-alone Linux download yet.

The "Visible Pinball" as it is called, is the centerpiece of a new "Pinball Science" museum exhibit that NBAM is developing. The game will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the Pacific Pinball Exposition that is being held at the Marin Civic Center in San Rafael, California on October 5 to 7. "The purpose of the Visible Pinball is to teach kids about electricity and physics in a really fun way", Michael said. "It's also a blast to play!" he added. The Visible Pinball is based on a 1976 "electro mechanical" pinball machine called "Surf Champ". All of the wooden parts of the game and its backglass have been replaced with clear Plexiglas so that the mechanisms that drive the machine are visible to the player. Pop bumpers, drop targets, roll-over switches and other pinball mechanisms can be viewed as they operate. Pinball games made prior to 1977 did not use electronic components or computers so all of the functions are based on mechanical and electro-mechanical parts.
