Default What happened to the "ROAR" of engines starting upon OSO opening????

I know I'm not a regular on the board. But, I use to look forward to the sound of those engines starting when OSO would open.

Did I miss something here??

Being a Gearhead, they were always good for a "Fix" of power noise....

I usually just clicked by it so I never really heard it much. Didn't do much for me either though. I did not even know it was gone!

I don't think the little speakers on my lap top did it justice I am sure. I usually go out back and piss the neiebhors off when I get withdrawls real bad. Someone probably has that one or another on file. Maybe OSO can make it available to those that would like it.

I asked about it because it was a good place to pop on and get a "FIX" of healthy engine roar.

Since I sold my Cigarette and only have a Chris-Craft woodie now. But, I'm ready for another. I need that "ROAR" from time to time. Heck, I'd be working late doing paper work and I'd turn the speakers up and punch up the OSO just to drown in the noise.

I hope I can get a download of it somewhere.

Perhaps it was slowing the LOADING TIME of the site, and they just chose to remove it???
