Daily: 30th September 2011

Hello once again, Friday has turned up and we’re looking at a lovely Indian Summer weekend to enjoy ahead. It’s a little bit odd writing this daily post as I’m not quite sure what to write. If you’re a fan of the Daily Posts and what they have offered over the years, it turns out that this will be the final Daily Thread as discussed yesterday. If the Dailies are going to end then they’re going to end in a triumphant hurrah! Now, onto today’s links.

In the world of Formula 1, there’s not been a huge amount of news apart from the odd bit here and there. Every Thursday Mark Webber posts an article up for the BBC and I always give it a read in work, it’s worth checking out his latest instalment as he talks about Singapore. It also seems that Bernie doesn't really care about FOTA which is no surprise, but also Christian Horner also seems quite neutral to FOTA too. I'm glad we heard from Christian because we never ever hear from him.

Elsewhere, Christine took some time yesterday to blog about the decision from the BBC to get rid of Doctor Who Confidential, behind the scenes shows that follow Doctor Who episodes when broadcast. It's not a huge surprise as they've become very irrelevant recently, although I enjoy how much Muse they use on there sometimes. I'm also incredibly excited that one of my favourite games of all time, Psychonauts, is now available on Mac! Such a surprise to see this announcement and sudden arrival. Mac owners deserve to play this piece of Tim Schafer genius! I also loved this brilliant little timewaster that Bassano shared for all the typography geeks out there - what better way to type than through llamas?!

If you’re going to do anything today then I very much recommend looking at the following link as, for today only, GOG.com are allowing you to download Broken Sword for free! One of the greatest point and click adventure games of all time, and yours for free. I can’t recommend it enough! Also this week I seem to have found myself watching a lot of the IT Crowd, so why not look at 10 of the geekiest references in the show? How many do you know? Finally, scoring from a header is a normal occurrence in football but not so much from 70 yards out...

And that’s it. It’s been an privilege to have been a part of the Daily Thread era, and I know I can say that on behalf of every single person who has written a Daily Thread, whether it was the once or whether it was regularly, that we loved every second of writing these for you. Whether it had links galore, whether it had genius drawings, or whether it was about Heikki, whatever the context of the author's Daily style, it's just been a pleasure. Sadly, all good things must come to an end.

To the Daily.
