Daily: 9th December 2009

Hello there. Here is your useless fact of the day, according to the people's encyclopedia. Today in Sweden and Finland, it is Anna's day - a day that celebrates anyone called Anna. Isn't that a bit mean to people who aren't called Anna? I assume there is a reason but I cannot find out why. A mystery. Anyway, here's some F1 stuff:

  • Mr Buxton has a post on the recent Silverstone deal, which reminds us that although it's all good news for the British GP, there is still a track that has been left as a building site with no immediate prospects. In the comments last night, we were trying to work out who was to blame for this - the Wheatcrofts, Gillett, Ecclestone - the list is endless.
  • Whilst we're on the subject of complete and utter failures, I have given up on Twitter and gone back to using Identica. I know there are only a select few people over there, and I won't be pushing madly for others to join - although come and say hi if you do! - I just wanted to let you all know where I'd gone.
  • I also updated the Daily Post Guest Writer wiki page with space for a brand new week of guest writers. If you fancy having a go, or another attempt if you took part last time, then sign yourself up. It probably won't be until January now, but get in there early to secure your spot.

That'll do it for now. Don't forget, a new advent show goes up every day until Christmas, just a few moments after this daily post appears, so head on over to relive a moment from the 2009 season. I'll see you in the comments.
