Even more X-Flight track and pictures

Posted Monday, January 8, 2001 4:20 AM | Contributed by ShiveringTim

I just returned from what is probably going to be my weekly visit to Six Flags Ohio. As expected there is much more X-Flight track in the main parking lot. In one week the amount of track and supports have tripled. I can see another two or three weeks of this unloading to occur before vertical construction begins. With all the snow on the ground, it's hard to tell if footers have been poured.

Also included in this set are some pictures of The Villain covered in snow. Very neat.

Other webpages take note about how fast Scott's pictures load, and they still look good! This is how all webpages should be.

Maybe it has something to do with that fast server that it's on. ;)

I'm guessing it's the same server as CoasterBuzz's... ?

Ding ding ding! Give that man a cigar (or another appropriate prize) :)

All I did to those pics is resample from 1280x1024 down to 640x480 and bump up the compression a bit. Thank you Paint Shop Pro!

If you are looking for a great program to optimize graphics for the web, check out Fireworks by Macromedia. Awesome web tool and relatively inexpensive.

God bless the "Save for Web..." function of Photoshop.

I used to have Fireworks. Maybe I just didn't put enough time into it, but I didn't find it to be all that helpful to me.

I do want to start messing around with Flash again, though. Just movies... navigation tools and whatnot with it just aren't my thing.
