  1. Really glad this is happening. I'm just surprised it stood so long. I definitely have some memories on it, but it's time for it to go. Commence speculation on its replacement in 5....
  2. J.D. this is an awesome thread! I'm compelled. I haven't been on here for a while, but you're enticing me to become active again.
  3. As several of you here know, I always have trouble with Diamondback. I'm 6' 4" and 310 pounds evenly dispersed, and it's always a crapshoot as to whether or not I ride. Usually I have to sit in the back row of any given car and have a ride op willing to do some pushing. (Usually my man Cory) I guess I just don't understand why these seats aren't more accommodating. I'm by no means skinny, but I'm not fat either. I'm just a large person, mostly muscle, with some fat. I feel like me and many others I know here should have an easier time. There are some people I see around the park that are obvious no-gos, but a lot of us big guys around KIC should be able to fit easier.
  4. This seems to be a bit of an exaggeration. Tower Gardens wouldn't be a smoking area. There would be a smoking area in Tower Gardens. A heck of a lot of people already smoke there, so they might as well just make an actual smoking area there. At least then they won't be roaming all around.
  5. By calling him "The New Guy" we've officially named him.
  6. Zach, these are fantastic! Thank you for posting them. A whole flood of memories just hit me. I'm really upset I have to miss this operating season.
  7. Sure thing guys! Thanks for the kind comments. Jzarley if you can't find it, I can send it to you. Since it's not payware it'll be legal.
  8. I wish you did too! But seriously, I've been doing my best to get this widget on as many platforms as possibly. Alas, it's currently on one, but I'm doing my darndest. lol
  9. I use Dashcode. It's incredibly easy! If you know a little HTML, CSS, Javascript (you probably don't need any coding knowledge, I just suggest it so you know what's going on) and have some skill in Photoshop, you can do it. It's included on every Mac OS X install disk. I think it's also on your restore disk that comes with every Mac. If not, it may be on the extras disk also included with every Mac. Just pop the disk in and look for the developer area and install it. Need any more advice, just let me know!
  10. Thank you Coney Island! Coaster_junky, It can't be loaded onto a Touch. I may invest in the SDK for iPhone/Touch apps soon. If I do before the operating season begins I'll develop this widget into an app. If not, next year's will be.
  11. It's back again this offseason! The Kings Island Countdown Apple Dashboard widget is redesigned and ready for download. I try to incorporate the new "thing" at Kings Island in my widget every year. This year we have the Peanuts Gang! There have been so many requests for a Vista/W7 sidebar gadget version of this. I tried, seriously, I did. However, no dice. Since I'm in college this year, I don't really have the time to teach myself how to design Gadgets. Widgets are designed in a program whereas Gadgets have to be hand coded from the ground up. If anyone knows how to design Gadgets, PM me. I will lend you all of my materials for the "conversion" process. Any takers? Now to the good stuff: Preview! Unzip the file then double click to install. Enjoy! P.S. Don't miss the back side.
  12. Why don't we all complain? It doesn't take much time out of our days and it can't hurt anything. Cory, you're right. But if we want something done, why don't we put the gears in motion? Let's remove any excuse for not fixing it.
  13. ^ Thanks for the fascinating story. It thrills me to know there is[/is] someone inside KI that cares about the Wurlitzer as much as I do. I love your idea. It's absolutely fantastic. I would get behind it full force. Perhaps the good people here at KIC (hint, hint!) could get behind this and make a movement. $2700 split amongst the regulars here is not a lot at all per person. Maybe there is a chance after all.
  14. I'm so terribly distraught by the removal (more than likely permanent). I don't really understand the reason for its removal. Something that historic and integral to a park experience is surely worthy of the labor and time it would require to restore it. I would be interested to hear more about the organ. Especially what happened to it that was severe enough to warrant complete decommission. Oh, and J.D., thanks for those links! I just may have to invest in those CDs.
  15. Awww, thanks. I think to help combat that, just a plus button would be better. That way you know who's useful and you can make your own judgement on who is useless. This should help avoid that whole immaturity factor.
