Video: Voyage Construction Tour

I'm not really sure about the rules on this site about linking, so I apologize if this is not appropriate, but... I thought it would be OK since the link is pointing to the video I put together from the Construction Tour at the Fall Affair at Holiday World this past weekend. If you look closely enough you will probably see yourself if you went on the tour. :)

See you guys in May! :)

The music makes me want to stick hot pokers in my ears. :)

Seriously though, none of the video or photos really do any justice to illustrate just how dramatic the elevation change is from the station area to the mid-course. I really can't wait.

(offensive comment removed - stop and think, the person you're talking about is most likely a member of this site - LG)

I happened to be around when the quote was up. It mocked the size of a female 'Buzzer on the video climbing a hill.

Whassa matter - did that break your concentration? Ruin the stream of sweaty men-backs you prefer? Or was it the lumber and steel that uh, strums your banjo instead? Of course, it's easy to throw stones without a photo of yourself on the forum.

Only a guy without a woman would ever talk that way about any gal's size. Dude, what's your excuse? Were you raised in a barn? By wolves? In a meth lab?

Did you even have a mother, or were you dropped off on a porch somewhere? Cuz she'd smack you right now for publicly spouting off like that. Frankly, any decent person would.

When did a 36MB file become "small?"

I didn't see the comment westcoasterman made, but I personally know the person the comment was directed at.

Of course, enthusiass comes to mind along with several other choice descriptions (insensitive, prejudiced).

Suffice to say you'd better hope you don't come face to face with me or several other people on this board. You may regret it.

Tip: if you encode the file as a QuickTime movie, you can make it a "fast start" movie, which starts to play while it is downloading. You get the primary (to the end user) benefit of streaming, without the need for a streaming server.

I can't comment on the video yet; it's still downloading...

Ditto on the remark, considering in real life she's an absolute sweetheart.

I'm thinking that you need three things right now: 1.) To grow up, 2.) a nice shot to the giggleberries, and 3.) a very sincere apology to the person that you offended.

I'm dead serious!

Im going with rideman on quicktime is my favorite format because of that, speaking as somebody who has no knowlege of such stuff, its just easier for the person whose downloading. im sure its a great vid (downloading now)

** ok downloaded, cool vid, looks like fun, music is eh...not my taste but i can see why it was chosen. Also, You have to be pretty immmature to remark about anyone like that, tho I didnt really see anything in the video that could trigger such a remark, making it even more pathetic. I guess you have to be an asshole and look for stuff to make fun of to see it. Nice video though overall:)

\/I feel bad if the sound is all you got haha :-p *** Edited 10/5/2005 8:18:37 PM UTC by P18***

Ahh, crap, the video won't play for me. I get the sound, but no picture. And I really want to see it too! Can somebody help me?

And the woman is a very nice lady. I shared a ride with her and she spent some time chatting with my dad and kept him company. How could you make a comment like that?

Wednesday, October 5, 2005 4:23 PM
Oh please you guys are blowing that comment way outta context, It might of been in bad taste but I in no way intended to offened anyone. You people around here talk about fat Acers in a more offensive tone then I did about that lady. I also posted that right after Jeff he didn't seam to have a problem with the comment, why didn't he edit it if he thought it was that bad. I didn't say anything offensive, saying big girl is not in anyway offensive. Now if I would of said whale, cow, pig etc etc then that would of been very offensive, but I didn't say anything that.

"Suffice to say you'd better hope you don't come face to face with me or several other people on this board. You may regret it."CPlady

So just for calling a person big girl I'm geting threats sounds to me like I'm not the only one being an enthusiass. Since were sending out threats then like Al Bundy use to say LET'S ROCK! I'm not big on hitting women not my thing, but if Queen Gonch, or whitewashed Playa or anyother guy think they have the balls to tango bring it on. Heres my right hand to God and on my dead grandmothers grave any of you that think they can step to me wont have the legs to step back and that's a promise.

I also never pointed out who I was talking about there was a few big peeps I saw, so how in the hell would anyone know who I was talking about since I never singled out anyone.

"Ditto on the remark, considering in real life she's an absolute sweetheart"HeyIsntThatrob.

So by saying big girl I'm calling who ever you think I'm talking about a mean evil person...not Some of you people need to come down off your high horses and get back into reality because all of you are blowing this way outta contex.

So Coastaplaya by saying a girl is on the big side makes me gay and like sweaty men backs?... Your a $#%$# idiot. You keep right on cheerleading for Gonch. FYI I wasn't throwing stones at anyone, nor mocking her, It was a lame stupid joke and you people are acting like I killed God or something it's not that serious get over it.

Anyways To the person I made that comment about if your reading this I do apologize if I offened you in anyway. That was not my intentions, it was a lame joke and again I'm sorry if any offense was taken. *** Edited 10/5/2005 9:11:22 PM UTC by westcoaster man***

BSBMX: Follow the instructions on the page! You need to have the DivX 5 (or later) codec installed on your machine. For OS-X, the installer is fairly painless and automatically plugs into QuickTime; I presume it is similar on Windows if you're using either QuickTime or WiMP. There is a separate DivX player for Windows which will also play the file.

My suggestion is that you download and save the file, then you can experiment with different players without having to reload the file each time. But once I installed the DivX codec, it ran fine on my OS-X box. One limitation is that apparently DivX 5 doesn't work with QuickTime 7, which means if you have Tiger (MacOS X.4) you're out of luck.

And Mr. Bubbles: The video looks good! Heck, I haven't even had a chance to look at the footage I shot, let alone put together a web video! :)

westcoaster man, whether you meant to or not, your comments were very hurtful to the person in question. Getting all defensive means nothing to me, or to her friends, it was still wrong and insensitive to that person's feelings.

Now, if you had simply said "I'm sorry", it could have passed. Instead you defend your actions which tells me you have no remorse whatsoever.

Way to go.

Hey! This is a pretty big hole I'm in! Maybe if I keep digging I'll find my way out!

Wow, I can't be the only person who lol'd at this.

I did download the Divx 5 thing, but it still didn't work.

Ok well whatever I'm not here to kiss anyones behind, just follow the rules of the TOS and if that post was insulting, again, I said I'm sorry for that, and the insult was removed by the Admins.

I said sorry, yet I don't have the right to speak upon why I thought some of your post was ludicrous. I did not defend in anyway me calling her anytype of names and I appologized for those remarks I made.

Getting defensiveful to you and her friends ...umm wheres the roll eyes smilely when you need it.

Remorse umm I must have some since I did admitt my bad and appologized to the lady I insulted. I don't see what else I can do, again I'm sorry for insulting Her.

If the person I insulted is reading this, again I appologize

Hey! This is a pretty big hole"

Isn't that that same thing they said when they walk in your RV at the CBHW event and found that bottle of wild turkey hanging outta your rump. j/k j/k j/k
