Monza, Monza, Monza. A mini Le Mans, where 80% of the lap is spent with your feet up, doing the crossword and the other 20% is spend absolutely terrified because your car isn't set up for corners. Full power straights lead to tight chicanes, with every breaking zone an opportunity to attack... and to make a terrible mistake.

To understand Monza's terrifying nature, you can try simulating the experience the following ways:

  1. Go sky diving with a velociraptor
  2. Ride in the front carriage of a rollercoaster, but attempt to make your way to the rear carriage before the ride is over
  3. Ride around your bathroom on a bicycle. A rocket-powered bicycle.
  4. Tell Arnold Schwarzenegger that you didn't much care for his performance in Junior
  5. Fly in a plane piloted by Kobayashi and designed by Nick Wirth
  6. Read Katie Price's new magazine

Speaking of Katie Price's magazine, I have to share with you a scan of her 'Recipes' page:

Lazy Katie!

Amazing, amazing stuff. She cooks the way HRT design cars (in fact, they the HRT and Katie are both built in the same factory, I believe).

Tragically, I won't be able to watch qualifying or the race live this weekend, so I guess I'll call this a test run of 2012. I'll see you on the other side, guys!

    Wow, you can tell I spend entire days at keyboards both at work and home, my fingertips have gone all soft, it actually hurts to type.

    Sadly golf plans on Saturday may be off due to heavy wind and rain.

    4 rugby games today.. I like watching Scotland but I don't care they are playing Namibia (no idea they had a team) in a few minutes time. Then it was two other countries I've immediately forgotten about. Then France v Japan at 7am, bet the French put in a huge score if their good team has showed up. Then the one I'm interested in, England v Argentina at 9.30am. Should probably have not stayed up to 2am after a busy work week... shall put mobile devices by bed and watch there...

    Well, I heard some loud cars down the road from me today and it turns out part of my road was turned into a temporary drag strip.

    The idea was that they would race a petrol hot rod against and electric one. Fine, the electric dragster looked great and was quick, but the problem was that it was completely silent. This was made worse by the fact that it's rival Mustang was ear-splittingly loud.

    Plus the fact that there were 3 or four hot rods parked there meant that the idea of a cool electric car was really badly sold!

    there was a whole detailed post about it the other day: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2011/09/08/delivering-fast-boot-times-in-windows-8.aspx

    mind-numbingly boring to read, but it explains how the laptop in the video uses something other than bios on startup.

    bios must be about 30 years old now, so that's a good thing. however... you will require a brand new machine that isn't even available to buy yet, just to get that speed.

  • Lukeh10/09/2011 at 16:24

    bios must be about 30 years old now, so that's a good thing. however... you will require a brand new machine that isn't even available to buy yet, just to get that speed.

    I very much approve of the fact they've finally moved on from a bios but I suppose the sceptical side of me that doesn't know a huge amount about Win8 yet wonders how on earth it managed to load up correctly like that when you have security, start up programs, even stuff like drivers being loaded too.. it just made me wonder when it just popped on but then again I was sucked into the assumption it was being booted up. *shakes fist at microsoft*

    Also the ui is annoying me. They're bringing the metro UI onto the 360 in November and as pretty as it is, it looks fabulous for touch screen use like windows mobile but a pain in the bum for navigating on something like an xbox. But we'll see. Not sure how I feel about it being used as a fully fledged OS UI but again, you can swap to a desktop so that's good.

    Yeah it's heavily designed for kinect too, which like a touch screen would be a great way to navigate it through. Although I would find it a bit odd if late at night you're shouting at your tele "Xbox, open facebook! Open facebook! OPEN FACEB.. oh i give up"

    (and then it would open, of course)

    Yep this is why I can't hardly afford to do anything, but after living alone in a place I could afford then having to move, I could either choose somewhere I could barely afford or start sharing, and I'd learned to love the independence of my own space (even if it isn't really mine).

    technically we don't share anything though, it can't be a case of 'I buy this this week, you buy it next week' because we should have three of everything. We had a cleaning roster, it didn't last long. It shames me that adults should need to be told when to do things.

    My accountant flatmate even transfers money into my account each month so I can pay her share of the bills for her because otherwise she never pays them. Needless to say I certainly wouldn't hire her as my accountant.

    after my flatmate lost his keys I got new ones cut for him and it then took him 6 weeks and 8 reminders to pay me back. It really wouldn't work with these people, they're so resistant to ever open their wallets :D

    oh my goodness! How have you not gone crazy at them before now? I'd have lost patience with them if it were me..

    also.. Amy what's going on with Fed??

    My housemate got drunk one night and unplugged the freezer for lols... It took me quite a while to persuade him to give me money to replace my food. People can be really annoying.

  • Amy10/09/2011 at 20:10

    I thought about that but the pain of having to get up to let him in every single day was much worse. He sent me a text one Saturday morning at 7.58am saying 'are you up? can you let me in?

    Um, I'm not even up at 7.58am on a weekday. Why on earth would I be up then on a Saturday.

    say what?!?

    Ohh my flatmates learnt last year that it's not a good idea to upset me too much.. seeing as i was the one cooking for them and looking after them if they were ill :) one bought me flowers once when he came home drunk and forgot i had a migrane and put loud music on at 2am and woke me up. So when i woke up in the morning he gave me a huge load of flowers as an apology

    Love my flatmates :)

    travelling is dangerous when you're the only person in the house who clears the mailbox. Last year I did specifically ask them to bring the mail in while I was away but by not asking them to open it all the bills were overdue by the time I got back.

    of course. I'm pretty calm these days, I reached a point at some stage this year where Rogers loses don't really upset me. I know all these people who flail and whine and LITERALLY CRY then don't get over it for about a month and I'm just like '....really?'

    oh wow. I think with Murray i get a bit disappointed if he goes out earlier than the Semi's but he rarely wins the Semis so for me that's like a final of it's own :D

  • Lukeh10/09/2011 at 22:35

    ooh

    if you want I'll take it off his hands, so he's back in something that suits him :)

  • lou10/09/2011 at 22:37

    lacking in the wales department at the moment, may have to make a few submissions me thinks.

  • Lukeh10/09/2011 at 22:40

    ohh that green sticks out like a sore thumb when you realise it..

    set point to rafa.

  • lou10/09/2011 at 22:41

    ohh that green sticks out like a sore thumb when you realise it..

    it looks horrible!! the green looks fine with the black/white/blue but really not with the red. ew ew ew ew ewwww.

  • Lukeh10/09/2011 at 22:55

    I'm amazed anyone can keep up with nadal or djokovic. Not that I know loads about tennis but they just seem so, so good.

  • Lukeh10/09/2011 at 22:56

    third time lucky hopefully with breaking rafa's serve.. come on andy.

    it's obvious what's wrong with Andy's photo - the green stripe. Although it's nice to see it's found a new sport to disturb since it left F1's tyres.

  • lou10/09/2011 at 23:02

    woooohhoooooooooooooo!!!

    Is he just talking to himself? Maybe he has an invisible doubles partner out there with him.

    talking to his team i think.. sometimes he comments here or there, but today he appears to be talking them through the match :D

    he's losing it I think

    I always said when I was young the best way to fight off daddy long legs was by squirting them with Daddies brown sauce, although this method has not been tested.

    I do not recommend this wild method 9 year old Lukeh created.

    worst time of year. ever. Loads of people near my house at uni have been getting the biggest ones i've ever seen.. not looking forward to going back. thinking of just hiding in a swimming pool for a week or so. Spiders can't swim.. can they?

    Yeah, you are bound to get far bigger ones than we would here. Although the screams mum shouts out at what turns up in our bath you'd think there was a tarantula in there!
