A friend in the biz have said this... "I don't wish to argue with some punk who ran a hampton once about what lightbulbs look better on ride x and y." I see his point.

I am all for fans. I am a fan as well as with-it. But some of these guys wanna work at McDonald's and tell you how your show should be operated. It DOES get annoying at times. AGAIN, like I said I like fans too... A few people on this board would say that I have treated the fans I have met in person well (Trey, Robin, Chris before he was in the biz, Andrew and several others) but then there are some others that just annoy the * out of me. I got one former member that I've had to boot of our facebook page several times because he just can't shut up when he needs to. It's sad really that there is a new topic every few days here and there used to be one every few minutes. But what can ya do when most of the people in the biz won't post here anymore and probably won't be returning. I know many that used to and gave up out of frustration. I used to post a lot... not as much these days.[rant2]
I stay out of things until the personal attacks and bashes start. And even then, I still miss things. Generally I leave stuff alone if at all possible. But if someone's being 'attacked' and I don't see it or nobody 'reports' it using the buttons on the each post, there's nothing I can do about it.
The life on this board keeps going down hill because the moderators allow personal attacks.
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.
We had a hole in the floor of doghouse that allowed the turntable to sit on the ground. After that we had an old Rockola jukebox in the wagon behind the ride. Best thing about that was that we always got our load spotted behind the ride!
Ride the Zipper?
I remember watching a Flying Bobs operator, around 1978, playing records on a turntable hung by chains from the top of the doghouse.
He'd reach over his head and put the needle on the record by feel since he couldn't see the record
up there.

That is, right after you got it untangled from your legs.


gotta luvit![agree]
I have done so much,with so little,for so long,I am now qualified to do anything with nothing!

Please do not exit the ride until it comes to a complete stop.

I havent found anything BETTER than MyIE2 over the years.. I love it so much!!! (MyIE2 will work with Mozilla Engine but im not sure how to set it up to get it to work)


Look man -- Firefox is currently on version 9, Chrome on version 15, Opera version 11 - IE on version 9. It's real simple. You need to upgrade. Using all that outdated software is your problem. It's not the site, it's not the scripts here. You're using technology that's about as useful as a BETAMax VCR against server code that is optimized for technology that is 10 years newer.

You need to hunt around on ebay or something and find you a used computer that can atleast run WindowsXP or 7 and get out of the stone age. Any issues you have with the software, scripts, and whatever are all attributed to using an ancient machine by today's standards. What you're trying to do is like playing putting a Blu-Ray into an 8-track player... It's never going to work right, and disabling this and running that will NEVER fix it...
