kind of strange to se an accident happen on a dartron cliff hanger.
i have ridden them for about 3 years and i never heard of one ever having an accident since it was built in 1998. i turely think it is an extremely safe and well built ride. i hope this isn't the end of the line for wade's cliff hanger. i rode it at the s.a rodeo last year and there was perfecty fine. mabye something that held the glider in place just wore down or something. i hope wade fixes the cliff hanger cause i do like it. it still works and i'm sure wade can easly fix it. there will probly be a little bit of stigma attached to it but mabye people will get over it as time goes on

While you are all on the Divx format, if you search the web you can find the Nemo codec pack, it has the Divx 3.11 and 4 codecs in it, and they are free, no spyware involved, as for it being a great thing. Divx can be great, I use it all the time when I am encoding movies. I wont go into to much detail since it is a little OT, but Divx can be a great thing to have, but I also have an AC3 codec as well, I dont remember if Nemo comes with one or not, but you can download a free one online as usual.

While I agree that just because of the insult of their adding spyware to their software, that people deserve a free copy, they do charge for the versions that are released in that Nimo codec pack. Just so people know if they install that pack, they do it at their own risk 😉. I installed it once, and had more headaches than anything from there forward. It installs so many garbage filters and other stuff you don't need either. If you get a movie and it doesn't play right, the XviD codec comes with a little file called aviC.exe -- it can chance the codec association for avi files, which is 99% of the problems with them... For those that are interested, there are many codec discussions on the bsplayer.org site I reference, as well as some good links to follow through on if your into this stuff... We've really gotten off topic with it, so I think if we go any further on it, we should start a new topic in the OT forum for it (for sake of the fact it's not a bad topic and I can see it being around for a while).
