Off topic a bit but Hanover has added ALOT of density to South Park.

Looks like they have one crane fully up. Good stuff!

Is anyone else having trouble getting into SSP today? It's been giving me server errors all day.

Sigh. So that mobile crane in the picture above is disassembling the crane above the Club Nokia building. My bet is they move the cab and arm assembly over to the second crane stem in the Ritz site. Those crane arms are long, and the stems aren't that far apart. It'll be interesting to see how they coordinate the movements. For some reason, I hear Egon saying: "Whatever you do, don't cross the streams!"

Hopefully Winston will get some funnny lines. I can't remember anything remotely funny coming from him.
