Birthday Wish For A Super SLO posted
don't normally post birthdays on our N&U. I mean, I
did it for NIRc_uLtRa_MaX
because he was being a pain lol, but by and large that sort of
thing is reserved for our forum.
I thought it would be "proper" to announce the
birthday of an individual who is without a doubt one of our most
valuable players...if not "the" most, and I sincerely
mean that. Mind you, I'm not referring to his finesse on
the tracks or his cunning, ninja-like rumbling maneuvers; he
doesn't know anything about that stuff lol. He loses races
against parked cars some days, and he's definitely not the most
macho guy on the cube, either. The girls on the team take
great pleasure in abusing him during our rumbling sessions, and
then afterwards, calling him names and taking his lunch
money. Sure, it's embarrassing for us guys, but what you
need to understand is that he more than makes up for it in his
sense of "team". When I said he's quite possibly
the most valuable player on the team, I'm talking in terms of
who he is as an individual and what he brings to SLO. He's
without a doubt our "glue", if you will - the one that
keeps us all grounded and in check when we start to unravel or
become focused on things that detract from what we're supposed
to be about. All of that and more, along with a host of
intangibles that transcend any words I could type in this
post. He's one heck of a guy, and we are extremely
proud to have him with us!!
the absolute best, bud. One thing's for sure, this team
wouldn't be what it is today without ya! So...think of
something nice you'd like to have, then send me the money so I
can purchase it. Oh, and don't forget to throw in an extra
$10 or so for shipping lol. From all of us on SLO...have a
great day, PaPa!!
earth shattering news - just a few more updates on two of our
garage sets pages (Adoob
specifically). We're continually looking to improve upon
what we have, so if you have suggestions or if you see something
that's just plain out of whack...click on the "COPE"
link in the title and let us know the deal.
if you're not certain if your track list is up-to-date, on each
track list page where
the individual tracks zips are displayed, the newly added tracks
are denoted with a yellow dot (example). If you're missing one or
more...or all (lol) of those tracks, then simply download the
ones you need individually, put them in your MTM folder, then
re-download the appropriate .ini. It's pretty much a no-brainer.
MX has been added to the Short Track List lol.
See, now you can put that great info in the second paragraph to
RepFan Strikes Again!! posted
been talk in Congress about a "RepFan"
holiday (probably on a Saturday lol, but still...).
Lincoln, Nebraska is mulling over erecting a statue in his
Grisham is trying to set up an interview with the
guy about a book deal, and it wouldn't surprise me at all to
Spielberg's name in the mix at some point.
Oh yeah, this cat is hot; quite possibly the most sought
after MTMer since...since...well, ever! And you know, with
all the success and popularity he's enjoying, he took time out
of his schedule to make a truck for SLO_TNT
- my son.
don't know how he (my son) came up with the name
"TNT", and consequently "Bomber" for a truck
name, but RF hooked him up
(and good), as you can see here.
TNT has been runnin' with us
lately, so I went ahead and merged his truck in with the other
team trucks and put it on our SLO_RIDERS
I can't thank you enough, man. You've always come
through for us, and this time it was a personal favor, which I
appreciate more than you know. Thanks again, bud!!!
Garage Settings and Track Lists posted
yeah, we're cookin' again as far as updates go, and this one's
short and to the point. Here goes:
made some minor corrections to the J-C
garage settings pages, so if you've d/led them, you might want
to do it again so you're up-to-date.
is heading up a new track list - one that'll feature all the
race tracks on our SLO Tracks page.
There's no time line for when it'll be done, but knowing him I
wouldn't be surprised if my son (now 10) is grown, married, with
a kid on the way before he finishes it lol. Seriously
speaking, expect to see it sometime around the latter part of
August. That should put some pressure on him lol.
you're not a regular at Mal's and
(MTMG), then you may not be aware of Meth's new MTM 2 screen
capture program (destined for our Utilities
page, no doubt) or the new feature whereby you can download all
the tracks & trucks at MTMG via anonymous ftp. Those
are the the short versions of a just a few
highlights. Be sure to pop in over there from time to time
to see what the latest is. I guarantee you'll find
something you want or need!
With regard to the anonymous ftp, just to stress what's already
been stated, please do not abuse the privilege being afforded to
the MTM 2 community. It's a heck of a nice perk to have
available, so please adhere to the guidelines outlined for this
feature, which are:
1. For cable users - no download managers.
2. D/l one (1) file at at a time.
3. D/l Tracks.iso or the individual track sets; not
huh? Yeah, I thought
so. Oh, and be sure to take note of the jar by the door as
you leave. Donations are always welcome. Make
checks/money orders payable to: Larry
there have been some very good tracks produced during my
self-imposed hiatus (of sorts), and I would be remiss in my
duties as a SLOster if I didn't tell ya about 'em. Here we
go: NIR_Ashes' "ZN
Earth", and "Hidden
Air Base" which is still relatively new.
Park Rally", Tyler Wysocki's "Green
Hills", RT_DJ_MP's "Nostalgia?",...and
last but certainly not least, one by our very own SLO_HotShoe!
like "JDAK's Jaunt" serves as a tribute to his
long-time friend, SLO_Muddd(checkout the happy-go-lucky expression lol). Both
hail from Albany, Oregon, oh and hey - here's a picture
of the two of them several years ago. Word has it that
shot was taken right after they tested a new hole Muddd
had dug up in his backyard. From the looks of that photo
it must've been one hell of a good mud hole. Yeah, no one
knows as much about dirt, grime and general filth as our Muddd
for the track, it's a typical HotShoe
product equipped with a very unique...twist. I'm not going
to give it away here; you'll simply have to see it for
yourself. I will say that it's nothing short of excellent,
and we've already added it to our Short
Track List. NOTE:
If you already have this list, checkout the "Short Track
List Update" post, Jun 27, 04 on our N&U
Archive page. Outstanding job, Shoe - this one's
