Hello! Welcome to Thursday, that dreaded day of the week, and the day I, James, have the pleasure of writing the daily post. A random fact for you all; I was born on a Thursday and according to the popular nursery rhyme 'Monday's Child' those born on this day have far to go, where exactly is anyone’s guess.

I admit I have no idea what is going on in the world of Formula One and I don't really want to at the moment and this daily post will reflect that:

  • Gizmodo posted a visual representation showing the number (approximately) of servers major tech companies own. Intel have an estimated 100,000 servers while Facebook, AT&T, and Time Warner Cable have in the region of 20,000 to 30,000. You may think this is a lot but Google are estimated to have over 1,000,000 servers, which is believed to account for more than 2% of the servers in the world! Microsoft, Yahoo, and Amazon are not represented so its not known how they shape up in comparison.
  • A couple of days ago Facebook turned off the lite version of the social networking site. They haven't revealed the reason for why but have said that they have learned a lot from having a slimmed-down version of the site. I am a little disappointed at this because it removed all those annoying apps but then I didn't use it that much.
  • If you find yourself with nothing to do this Thursday, and to try to involve F1 at least once: try finding a caption for this picture tag your comments with #caption so we can all enjoy!

That is it for my daily post, tomorrow’s post will be written by Lukeh which I'm sure will be fantastic. So I hope you all have good day and to steal Christine's line, I shall see you in the comments!.
