ok.... I know it is a lot to ask.... but for those of you that watched the 1st slideshow.....

try this one:

Seems the last one besides being giant (42mb) was not working on some machines and some guys were missing features, like the captions and navigation buttons.

This new one is Flash driven (I know, I usually hate flash too) but is smaller (11mb?) and should have pause, forward and backward buttons on the screen... move your mouse around to see the buttons.

same questions if you have problems, what machine, what OS, what processor, and what sort of connection to the internet do you have. I swear this is the last Hueco one I'll make you watch.....

Got some good stuff in the works if I can just find a universal format that works and is pretty cool.

Awesome. BTW, the animal in the cave looked like a Javelina to me.

right here, right now

Loads great: I could immediately flick through the pictures as fast as I wanted with just a handful near the end lagging behind by a few seconds.

Looks great; the images fit on my screen between the menu bars.

Images past 104/111 are not present.

what machine: Dell Dimension 2400
what OS: XP home
what processor: P4 (2.20 GHZ)
what sort of connection: 100 mbps wireless
(My hard drive is at least 80 gig, maybe 135/160 or something from an upgrade)

loaded and started immediatley, saw 111 out of 111 (is that how many there were?). better in many ways, but still, a little distracting to see a full frame with 1/2 of others on each side, and the photos looked better on the that first weird format.

Maybe, somewhere, the goldilocks format is still out there?

You've got my platform stats, I'll try it tomorrow @ work on the military / industrial rig.

OK: reloaded it & got images 104-111.

Ghey EDIT:

'Not sure how much RAM I have.
I don't mind telling you I run bun huggers, not boxers.
But I still get a melvin now and then, mostly when in the wide.
...And post op, a bit of g-string chaf too.

My machine has minimal Ram. Ibook G4 Safari, OS 10.4 Slowest DSL

It took 3 minutes to load, then it played great. I did enjoy the bigger picts on the other one. But everything worked.

I saw everything. It loaded in a few seconds on my awesome kickass winblows machine that puts shame to Hardman's Mac.

Wasn't I once in this Hueco place?

Worked fine here.

Did you plan on "Russ in the hole" for slide "69"?

Better. It's idiot proof now.

This baby took too long to load and took over my computer so I couldn't go elsewhere to play while it loaded. I did a force quit and went back to the first TR and watched it again.

Some sort of speed

I'll try it tomorrow on the new screamer Mac in the other room. Wait... why am I in here on this thing?

Works great on my machine (Win XP, 2GHz)
Thanks for the memories of some great routes; spent a month there in Winter 1985/86; haven't had a chance to get back there since then.

Don't like the show or the photos. Let's go back and get new ones!

All seriousness, the AZ machine completely gags on this thing. The first time I tried to load it (from the email) I got an error telling me that the script contents could make my sH*t run super slow and did I want to cancel. After clicking "yes" it took a few minutes for he "not responding" to go away.

I just tried it again and it works, but it's funky. Does something to the puter it doesn't like.

"Wasn't I once in this Hueco place?"

Yup, no later than February 1986. I found a biner with the name "Werner" stamped into it then; how many Werners could there be?
In fact I think it's still in a crate out in the garage somewhere.
