Just a couple of thoughts. Everything gets broken, dirty, lost etc...Please be sure she understands NOT to bring any cherished belongings. If all her good make-up melts into a solid glob she will never get over it. There is no such thing as 'being careful' with your boots, jackets, pants etc...No body is holding up a score card of 10 if you look great. Your score is given to you a week after the burn when you think back.

Plus warn her and make a plan for a 15 hour wind storm. Don't let it keep you in. Bring appropriate gear. Windy parties are the best.

AND 2 days of rain. Lots of people want to leave after 2 hours of rain. They weren't prepared for it. You can't ride your bike. Drive your car. Hell you can barely walk around. YET. I love it. Sit and watch for a while. Load a messenger bag with beer and snacks. Find a camp with giant dry spot and join the party.

Just noticed that the embedded video from my previous post isn't present anymore, no doubt because it offended the delicate moderator sensibilities who believe it is their mission to protect you from anything they believe has the most remote possibility to offend anyone. Unfortunately, the joke makes no sense without it, so in all it's glorious majesty, here is the "Bitch be cool" scene from the popular Quentin Tarantino film "Pulp Fiction":

[media]


And here's the dialogue for when the video gets deleted within the hour:

Jules: Tell that bitch to be cool.
Honey Bunny: (Incoherent & extremely irate ranting continues through entire scene)
Jules: Say BITCH, BE COOL!
Pumpkin: Be cool honey.
Jules: Say BITCH, BE COOL!
Pumpkin: Be cool...
Jules: (Screaming) Tell that fucking bitch to chill!
Pumping: Chill out ho...
Jules (Screaming): Chill that fucking bitch out!
Pumpkin: Chill out Honey Bunny!

Posting of this video is in no way meant to imply that any female in the history of the human race has been a b-word, nor to suggest that any majestic possessors of the magnificent vagina are capable of behavior consistent with the b-word, and.....

Oh good lordy, I can't keep writing that crap. Trilo, you serious need to bitch be cool.

FYI, there is a major technical problem with embedded videos, all over ePlaya. Trilo and others are working hard to fix it.

@Elliot - no there is not. The plugin is working just fine, it's users' browsers who are having trouble managing secure sites (HTTPS) that link to insecure (HTTP) plugins. If you're experiencing a problem, check and adjust your browser settings. In the case of Supafly_Fresh's post, he made a typo in the URL he used and the plugin didn't recognize the HHTTP link. I've edited his post to remove the extra H, it's displaying/previewing/playing just fine.

His rant is simply ignorance and jumping to the wrong conclusion. Some people are quick to play the victim, I guess.

Me and my computer-illiteracy! I should have said there is an issue with many ePlayans' browser whatchammacallits, and Trilo is working hard to educate us. :D

Basically one of the upgrades they made to the site when they improved the stuff under the hood was making everything more secure.

Our modern web browsers see the added security and make the assumption that this page is filled with critical, sensitive data that we don't want anyone else to have access to. This is actually pretty handy when it comes time to buy tickets and give the org your credit card number, but it backfires in places like this.

Your browser sees an embedded chunk of code which calls out to a third party website (in this case, a video hosted by another company) and says "Hey! That's not very secure!" so it blocks it, thinking it has your best interests at heart. Telling your browser "It's okay to let that content through" each time is mildly annoying, but honestly it's worth the hassle knowing that when it does come time to transmit something securely that information will be much harder to steal.

Didn't they break up? Didn't he go without her? I'm pretty sure we did hear from him further up the thread.
