  2. As a long time user of Firefox for multiple years, I switched to Chrome in mid 2011 and have never looked back! Do it Robb!
  3. I'll soon be upgrading my HTC Inspire to a HTC One X+ , I have no desire to change to an iPhone until iOS really becomes innovative and more customizable than just the wallpaper. Android has had so much innovation and development towards it that make the OS really stand out from the competition, not to mention the plethora of choices you have. I personally do not brag about my Android phone and what it can do that an iPhone can't, as I dislike people who do that, and vice-versa. I will say though that competition is good for both Google and Apple. Both products are great, but I feel that Android offers so much more than Apple does and that is enough to keep me away, not to mention Apple's business practice of litigating instead of innovating (but that's another discussion ) PS, don't get lost with Apple maps!
  4.

  6. In Fresno two weeks ago, gas got as high as $4.69 for regular, now it's dropped to around $4.19.
  7. Just in this morning from Atari: http://pressreleases.triplepointpr.com/2012/10/24/atari-announces-upcoming-mobile-games-lineup/ So there you have it; Roller Coaster Tycoon is coming to Android and iOS in Q1 of 2013! Discuss!
  8. I have to write a 2,000 word process analysis essay on how to use the "format" tab in Microsoft Word!
  9. Not gonna lie, I can't think of any other views better. Maybe that concrete coaster in either Spain or Portugal?
  10. I'm pretty sure SFMM said that Superman would not be closed during the construction of Full Throttle.
  11. ^^ X2 with three trains would be worse than two-train operations. The block set up would actually cut capacity IIRC. Two-trains is fine because the employees actually hustled (at least when I was there) to get the trains out on time before the timer got to zero. Two trains also allows one train to always be rehabbed.
  12. ^ The only woodie where Morgan trains have done a great job is on SCBB's Giant Dipper! Single position lap bar= Airtime! Not to mention it is really smooth too. Any other woodie I've been on with Morgan trains was awful.
  13. Great trip report of London! I actually got back to LAX from LHR on July 3rd! Great pictures! London is such a wonderful city, it is easy to get around and has LOADS to see! I also thought Changing of the Guards was quite boring and we left in the middle of it to go to the London Eye, Ha!
  14. Don't feel so bad, SFMM hasn't even acknowledged their is going to be a new ride or anything. We have heard anything out of them whether it be on facebook or anything.
  15. Thats the BEST part! I drive 3 hours just for that half of a second. I totally agree, that was the best part! The trick was to keep your head back against the headrest and hold on to the bar directly in front of you. If you did those two things it is intense but very fun and does not hurt. I guess I am going to miss Hurricane a little bit!
  16. ^ Interesting, I was in the back car of a red train on the right side from the entrance. Maybe it does differ by side/train? I'm going to be honest though, it was a POS ride I had, rough from the beginning.
  17. Colossus is a smooth airtime filled machine? LOL. Sorry but when I went on it last April I was literally screaming in pain from the roughness and there was one pop of airtime in the backseat. I'm not bashing you or anything. I just find it funny that how we had two completley different rides. I still think Giant Dipper (SCBB) is the best woodie in California with Apocalyspe in close second.
  18. This looks like a great choice! SCBB never disappoints! I realized earlier today that they probably don't want to put in a Eurofighter or an El-Loco because they have to keep the Giant Dipper the main attraction. I'm glad they went with Maurer Sohne instead of Gherstlauer. Like a earlier post, this is a great addition and will work well as a replacement to Hurricane! It complements GD nicely. I love the name and the colors! Does anyone know where the station/queue is going to be? Also,some people are saying that Waldameer has a clone of this, anyone else have anything to say about that coaster?
  19. ^ I wouldn't be that disappointed at a Maurer Sohne spinning coaster because they make the best spinning rides. Have you seen some of their spinning coasters in Europe? I'd rather have that over a typical spinning wild mouse. We all can dream though. I personally hope for a El-Loco or a Euro-fighter, but SCBB always has a way of surprising so we will see!
  20. I swear that ride is bipolar, some people just love the ride and some people hate it. I thought it hurt your shoulders really bad and was just all around not fun.
  21. ^^ Have you been on Green Lantern?!? It's an awful coaster and it hurts in so many places!
  22. ^ Simple. SCBB mechanics/management take the best care of the ride. They maintain it so meticulously compared to any other park in the world. Not to mention it has never ran PTC trains either!
