Good job, and thanks again for doing these! I listen every week and enjoy it every week!
I liked it mainly because Jeff explained the bashing of Six Flags for those who still wear rose-colored glasses while going in those parks. Although you didn't have any special guests that's probably one of my favorites of the podcasts.
Oh, and I enjoyed the geek banter at the end regarding cell phones, PDA's, etc. Birds of a feather...
About CP, if they really want to have that attendance stay that high I think they have to keep improving the resort. I have said this before, but the only reason we stay there is because it is far more convenient than staying off site. We stay at Universal Florida's resort because it is a great resort, and because its so close to the parks. Cedar Point's resort is dirty, old and the customer service is just good enough.
Jeff, I loved your rant about Six Flags. I get like that everytime I visit a SF park cause I see so much potential for a great time and just get frustrated when it doesn't deliver. I wish some of these guys would simply get up and go to a park un-announced to see how bad it really is. I also think its odd that the park managers don't take more pride in their positions like Cedar Fair, or Holiday World does. That pride ends up showing up in their parks.

It's because I wasn't there to ruin it. :) Great podcast!
Your rant on Dell is sooo right. Dell is located in my town (Round Rock, Texas [look on the back of your monitor]). Dell's products seem to be shiped, and have sometype of 'mishap'. A local news station actualy did an entire news seris of how local Austin Texas companies are having call centers in India... But yes... I live next to the Dell Diamond (do a Google Search), and I used to live down the street from the Dell Headquaters.... Also they provide computers for my school district
Woah.. not that you care. But I just wanted to tell you what you said... is soooo true.
And Keith, my apologies if you thought I was calling you "dumb", I wasn't. (For the record, there is nothing "dumb" about people who aren't computer-savvy and don't realize that a "podcast" doesn't need a "pod" to be played. You may think it's common knowledge, but it's an easy error to make for those who don't know, regardless how intelligent they may be. [/rant])
