    Ok, I dont know if its been mentioned yet, and if so, sorry for the thread....

    Anyway, wow! he's had the old tar ever since I first started coming here whereas everyone else has changed.....except eye.

    Now I have to relearn what tar is Alpha....confusing...

    One questions though.....what is it?: :confused:

    You going to submit it under a different name? Ha. I was thinking of changing mine as well. But I haven't had too much time to do that, I've still got a few other people waiting. I'll end up doing theirs first before I do my own.

    That is one of the best reasons to get one... Just make sure you take one of the riding classes so that you don't dump your new ride.

    Yes, that is the engine from my Harley. It's the latest version of the V-twin, the twin cam 88B 1450cc's of pure power. :D

    Well, you could, but it would be in violation of the membership agreement whichis grounds for getting banned. Not worth it. Besides, everyone would know it was yours anyway.....

    Hey eye, how about making your tar blink??? :D

    I have another tar that I created in Imageready, but can't seem to get it into a format that will swing here. I did a fade type effect with it using the frames but need to figure out how to get that to work when it's posted.

    Hey Duke, can we post up .mov files for tars??? :D I have one of the 88B rotating that would be cool... Harley on the mind, and between my legs (when riding of course). :D

    Alpha

    I'll definately take the course so I dont F*ck up my ride...plus it'd get me a liceanse, right?

    Though I'm afriad it'll have to wait a few years till i'm out of school and paid off a lot of my loans, and I don't live in a city so that I can justify a vehicle as a luxury item...

    Minor problem... I don't have a copy of flash... damn... I might be able to finagle a copy from work, but not sure. Would Shockwave work too??? I am not talking about the player version but the full bore. Granted it's not the OS X native one, so I will have to boot classic to do it (grumble).

    teabgs, it will also give you a break on the insurance. I know, since it has for me ever since I took the class in 96... I was riding before that, and on my first motorcycle to boot. Had a friend that I used to shoot with teach me the basics so that I would be able to ride to the class. I was living in Flordia (hell) at the time, which gives you a long riding season. I put 11,000 mile on the motorcycle in my first year alone. I moved back up to MA after that first year, and haven't been able to put that many miles on one since (in a one year span).

    havent used director in a while; but from what I remember Director doesn't actually import movies into the cast; it just links to them. While flash actually imports them.

    A lesser man would tell you to pirate a version of flash... I will suggest the higher road... :)

    Try imageready... it may do it.. if not email me the file and I will see if I can pull it off in flash. Your advice has saved my nuts on more than one occasion.

    Peace my fellow new englander.
