One is 16 and the other just turned 18 years old. Yes, we had pictures of the sensors and drew circles around some of the harder to see sensors like on the Big, big bug.

I could tell you how but then I'd have to kill you.

We're just not ready for a new website yet as my sons wants to put the server on the new computer he is saving up to buy---a new G5 with all the bells and whistles.

I would love to learn about Servers! I saw that Dell recently had one that started at about $250.00 but I don't know enough about them to get started....

ahhhhhhh
ok ok ok
i understand its private....i was thinking about going on the ride and just taking pictures of the certain aliens that u and i hit to max out
i was wondering if u had any tips for doing so or warnings because i know flash pictures aren't supposed to be done
also whenever i go in the baby swap and say single or say i would like to wait for the left or right side, the employees always seem to give me a scowl and then when i go on again they just act as if they hate me
this same thing happens on the mummy if i go on like 6 times in a row they start to comment on my hat or just me in general.
not everyone there but just like 3 main people that always have the same shift
.sigh. oh well i can deal with it
-going on friday with my brother-50 time on the mummy this friday-

Well, today I maxed out one gun and picked up the second gun and got 975,000. So close and yet so far!

I did have a personal best today. I maxed out the first gun at the ambush. Usually I can only max it out right before going into the scanner. So this was the earliest I have maxed out a gun.

I maxed out in the ambush not before the ambush. So when I left the ambush I had maxed out so I got to use the second gun to hit the green eyes in the bushes before going into the scanner.

Instead of hitting the aliens in the ambush, I turned around and kept hitting the alien in the blinds that open and close that were behind me in the other scene.

i know u maxed out in the ambush i meant to write that but it didn't come out that way
a little while ago my brother who i helped has now gotten to 896,000 he is really excited about doing so well but he still hasn't been able to beat me on the ride
next time he says "i will smoke you and you will never be able to max out again" then there was a weird silence and he punched me
well as of now he still can't quite max out and hopefully next time i can get to a higher score with 2 guns

The highest I can get on the second gun is 860,000 but I'm trying to max out on 2 guns.
This is really the old school being relegated to the "has beens" by the new school. I am in awe of you being able to max out 2 guns on one run. You guys must make the FLASH look like he is moving in slow motion. When we get the opportunity to re-up our passes MsDis and i have to meet you guys there to watch you work your magic.

Congrats, WOW, Way to go.

This will look silly with all you guys that max out before the ride is over, but I just wanted to say that I score 250,000 first time ever on MIB on our first trip to Universal last week. (Thanks to a few tips from this board.) Wowed my DH and DS who both scored under 100,000. (I've never scored over 50,000 on Buzz over at WDW. I was soooooo proud. Came back and told all my 9th graders what I did. They said it was because of my killer instinct.)

I have a question. before i posted the handbook i was concerned about people using it to get high scores, then becoming bored with the ride since they max out every time. I have been on MIB over 1,000 times and the ride is still just as much fun even if i do not max out on points.

For all of you that max out as easily as you do, Is the ride still as much fun as the first time thru???
