Hello everyone! I’m back! I’m not sleeping this time, I’m awake, and here to give you a bumper daily as a way of apology for forgetting about you last week. So hold on to your screens and brace yourself for the amount of links;

First things first, lets get this out the way;

ONLY TWO WEEKS UNTIL THE START OF THE SEASON!!!

Ehem..Right, so now that’s out of the way lets talk about some Formula 1. The final test came to a close yesterday and Christine wrote a great summary of all the pre season testing, check it out here.

Speaking of the approaching season (you know there are only 2 weeks right?!) have you joined the new fantasy racers league? Information can be found here.

If, like me, you’re missing F1 more than ever now that we’re so close to the race in Australia how about feeding your withdrawals with Part 1 and Part 2 of the latest Aside with Joe?

Mr C has been working very hard behind the scenes and has now launched the Sidepodcast Heartbeat. Check it out for yourself in the ‘more’ section of the header.

Leigh has been busy too, recommending a great song, and having a bit of a rant. Please check them out!

Right, time for a breather, F1 wolf found an awesome video of a downhill bike race!

Moving on from motorsport, lets talk about photography and art (as is traditional for my daily posts).

Firstly, earlier this week I posted this photograph on twitter;

Story image

What is a photo of I hear you ask? Did I spill coffee over this photo? No, it’s an argyotype. What’s that? Well it’s done with a certain argyrotype covered paper, the negative is placed over the paper in a holder and then exposed to UV light. I used a digital negative to create this, for a full description argyrotype processing check this out. I love my photography course, alternative processing is so cool!!!

So some interesting, beautiful and inspiring photography links for you;

… now for some fun arty links;

I shall finish the arty section of my daily with some Formula 1 related work by one of my favourite artists, Andreas Gursky. He’s improved the Bahrain track, and done a beautiful study of f1 pitstops.

Before I leave you all to share the podcast of the week, I just want say all of my thoughts are with those people affected by the disastrous events in Japan. There are many places on the web where you can donate to the cause, here is the British Red Cross donation information.

Podcast of the Week

As I’m excited for the upcoming Grand Prix, here is inside track from 2008! Yaaayy for Formula 1!

    ah i love the original, but that's why i wanted to try it in agyrotype, i have done 6 different digital negs to play around with. Was just working with the idea that i liked the images and wanted to experiment. There is also a technique very similar to this but where you get a blue effect. it's great. Gonna try that soon too.

    one day i'll do a daily on time.

  • Amy13/03/2011 at 03:48

  • Mr C13/03/2011 at 03:54

    woulda been less fun though.

  • Amy13/03/2011 at 03:54

    sitting down and concentrating is hard. That's why I gave my dailies a theme, otherwise they'd take about 12 hours for me to get through. That and because the world deserves Heikki news.

  • Amy13/03/2011 at 03:56

    also: WHAT THE CRAP. HOW DID ANDY MURRAY LOSE TO DONALD YOUNG.

    That's embarrassing for tennis as a whole.

    actually Jamie and Andy are playing Isner and Querrey next. Gooooo Quisner!

    Hey Gang,

    Haven't been on here for a while.

    But ... I'm now living in Melbourne, which many of you know, and I have tix to the Aus GP. Anyone else going and fancy a meet up? I also have two tix to "An evening with Joe Saward" on the Wed night before the GP. I'm not likely to need them as I think I'll be in Perth that day. Takers?

    ...urm.. yes, what I;m basically asking is got anything planned today? :)

    Well it's actually drizzling here today... Booooooooo!

    But I have a plan:

    1) Return the question about plans for the day to Lukeh

    2) Eat a packet of hula hoops

    3) Drink a can of coke (N.B. Some of the coke will be consumed alongside the hula hoop eating)

    4) Put the recycling into the recycling boxes

    5) Put coat on

    6) Go to Supermarket

    7) Buy things at Supermarket

    8) Come back from Supermarket

    9) Have a snack

    10) Watch some tv for a bit

    11) Go out to mates house for Sunday Lunch / Dinner

    12) Come home

    13) Watch a bit more tv for a bit

    14) Go to bed.

    So yeah, not much no, you?

    ;)

  • Leigh O'Gorman13/03/2011 at 11:29

    Not too bad cheers leigh. Yourself?

    Not too bad, although it seems I have found myself in another online "discussion" about the err's of the latest IndyCar decision.

  • Lukeh13/03/2011 at 11:30

    So yeah, not much no, you?

    What an awesome laid out day. I was happy enough just eating sunday lunch and having a friend over but now I feel the need to also number my daily routine in order! :D

  • Christine13/03/2011 at 11:32

    So yeah, not much no, you?

    Youve missed out Put things away from the supermarket. I have to do that today too.

  • Christine13/03/2011 at 11:32

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 11:32

    ***NEWS FLASH***

    I have finished the hula hoops...

    About 20% of Coca-Cola drink remains ;)

  • Lukeh13/03/2011 at 11:33

    Youve missed out Put things away from the supermarket. I have to do that today too.

    Oh yeah!

    I think you ought to thank Christine for this point Giggles otherwise your poor shopping will have been laying around all day and you won't have even realised

  • Leigh O'Gorman13/03/2011 at 11:34

    About 20% of Coca-Cola drink remains ;)

    Nearly three months since my last Coca Cola now. Feels all right

    :)

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 11:34

    Youve missed out Put things away from the supermarket. I have to do that today too.

    GAH!!!! The whole plan is out of whack now! And I seem to have not taken my coat off or put it back on and off when I go to my friends.

    Actually often times, Katherine will put things away from the Supermarket rather than me. This seems to be a good way of us both knowing what we have in the house.

  • Christine13/03/2011 at 11:36

    Ah-ha! Phew :)

  • Pat W13/03/2011 at 11:37

    Hello. My day involves:

    breakfast

    shower

    lunch

    golf

    visit mum

    dinner

    errr tv or something

  • Christine13/03/2011 at 11:37

    GAH!!!! The whole plan is out of whack now! And I seem to have not taken my coat off or put it back on and off when I go to my friends.

    Prhaps you are just being efficient and putting it on once for the entire day.

  • Lukeh13/03/2011 at 11:38

    Do it Do it!!

    1) Give mum a hug when she comes in because she went out before I got up

    2) Go and eat Sunday Lunch and perhaps become impatient by banging knife and fork on placemat

    3) om nom nom nom.

    4) Fall on bed from the effect of being full from yummalicious sunday lunch

    5) Play Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 for a bit

    6) Let friend in when he comes over

    7) Get beaten on FIFA and Smackdown but humbly admit I let my friend win. every time. Twice.

    8) Say goodbye to friend

    9) Pour myself a cooooooool drink and relax for a bit

    9) Watch Wonders of the Universe with the awesomeness that is Brian Cox

    10) Have some chocolate biscuits and watch more Fawlty Towers in bed and say goodnight to Lou

    11) zzzzzzzzzzzz

    Bit of a lazy day really :)

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 11:38

    Prhaps you are just being efficient and putting it on once for the entire day.

    That's true... But then there probably should have been points where I should have been saying 8b) Ignore Katherine asking me if "I'm stopping" as I haven't taken my coat off.

  • Christine13/03/2011 at 11:39

    That's true... But then there probably should have been points where I should have been saying 8b) Ignore Katherine asking me if "I'm stopping" as I haven't taken my coat off.

    Another good point. This is more complicated than it looks.

  • Lukeh13/03/2011 at 11:40

    Ohh there is probably have a shave in there somewhere too otherwise work get angry tomorrow!

  • Amy13/03/2011 at 11:40

    Bit of a lazy day really :)

    My day is already over but it went like this

    1) watch 5 hours of tennis

    2) go to the supermarket

    3) come home from the supermarket

    4) eat a box of Shapes for dinner

    5) rock out to Stevie Nicks

    It's been a good day :) Although if I had to go to work tomorrow I might feel like I didn't achieve much this weekend.

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 11:41

    Another good point. This is more complicated than it looks.

    It's tricky... Although I think the whole list is a sort of wiki style thing in my brain so I can constantly reapprase the situation. Imagine me like one of those GPS Tom Tom things I keep thinking, "Recalculating, Recalculating". Like now it begins with:

    1) Read comments on Sidepodcast and reply to them

    2) Finish can of coke (N.B. Some of the coke will be consumed while commenting and replying on Sidepodcast)

    :)

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 11:42

    Ohh there is probably have a shave in there somewhere too otherwise work get angry tomorrow!

    Should the shave be before the Mum hug to stop potential face scratching?

  • Christine13/03/2011 at 11:43

    Lots of supermarketing today.

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 11:43

    5) rock out to Stevie Nicks

    I think I should add this to my list

  • Lukeh13/03/2011 at 11:43

    Lots of supermarketing today.

    Strangely enough I try to make my weekend as unsupermarketly as possible. Funny that :)

  • Amy13/03/2011 at 11:43

    I also left out the bit where I cursed the sky/Bernie, but I did kind of tweet about that.

    Seriously, it was dark at 6.40. This 5pm start time is not going to work if the weather is bad!

  • Amy13/03/2011 at 11:44

    I think I should add this to my list

    I'd recommend it to all.

    I see.

    Mine goes as far as:

    1) Comments

    2) put down the iPad without opening the drums

    3) Shower/dress/etc

    4) do the shopping at the supermarket

    5) see if Mr C s awake

    6) ???

    7) Profit!!

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 11:46

    6) ???

    :)

  • Amy13/03/2011 at 11:46

    Lots of supermarketing today.

    I went to buy lots of things but only came back with the box of Shapes and a bottle of cranberry juice that I only bought because an Ocean Spray ad was on just as I left the house and it made me go 'gosh I like cranberry juice'. I'm an advertisers dream

    For those playing along at home, the Shapes are Italian Woodfired Pizza flavour.

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 11:50

    Face hair is spikey isn't it? I mean if you just have a beard then that's one thing, but if you sometimes shave but haven't it can be a bit sharp no?

  • Amy13/03/2011 at 11:51

    To be fair Lou has said before my stubble can be spiky when I haven't shaved so you make a fair point :)

    To the bathroom and the razor!

    for loop rather than four loop ;) But in theory yes.

    I'd say it's more like a while loop because we don't know the number of items we're iterating over but then he's half asleep so who knows :)

  • Christine13/03/2011 at 11:54

    Now he says he wants a four loop in his brain. The man even sleepy mutters in geek.

    He is weighing up the pros and cons of a for versus while loop. He kinda likes the idea of a finite list you work through until it's done, but I'm saying it doesn't allow for unexpected items.

    Ask him how he'd like to store the list? Because if it's in an array he's going to have trouble if something gets added to the middle of the stack.

    Garbage collection is automated but the worry is if you add too much to the list, it might start clearing unfinished items.

    This is sounding so much like his actual brain, it's worrying me.

    Garbage collection isn't automated if the "Pay Council Tax" item isn't on his list!

    Anyone that's been following Bahrain will know the protests and government trouble did not cease, but Joe has written about further activity in Manama.

    For obvious reasons, this may not be on regular news sites and programmes.

    Ah... No giggles radio this week... We're on a fortnightly plan... Next week is the next one.

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 12:37

    I was thinking about the todo list data structure...

    Maybe it would be best to hold in memory CurrentActivity = 1

    And then have your list like this

    Id, Name, Next

    1, Shower, 2

    2, Brush Hair, 3

    3, Shave, -1

    (Where -1 means stop I guess)

    Then if you suddenly needed to add "Dry Hair" after "Shower" you would then just read "Shower"'s Next property (2). Then add a new row:

    4, Dry Hair, 2

    Using the Next property of Shower to put on that row. And then update the shower row's Next property with your new id of 4.

    That way you don't need to do mid array inserts.

    I just used the heartbeat for the first time. Don't get me wrong. I have looked at it before and thought it was a great idea but I finally used it. I haven't been around all day so I checked the heartbeat and found that at 11 o'clock there were a lot of comments. So I figured there must be something interesting then so I went back and trawled through them. And it was interesting. I learned that Alex buys shopping but doesn't put it away unless Christine tells him to and that he has difficulty remembering whether or not he is wearing a coat.

    I would never have learned any of this without the heartbeat.

    I found it quite surprizing that there are more than 11 stongs that I love that came from 1981. Did not even think about "borrowing" my brother stero equippment back then becasue he left for University two years later I thought... :P

    In that case we will have it on the south geographic pole so that time will come to a halt at least locally..... (You at at the interestion of all 24 time zones...)

  • Steven Roy13/03/2011 at 17:59

    Antarctica will be the worst one...

    Could be a while before we get races there. Although it adjustable rear wing / KERS / stupidly soft tyres fail maybe ice will be the next suggestion to spice things up

    I just used the heartbeat for the first time. Don't get me wrong. I have looked at it before and thought it was a great idea but I finally used it. I haven't been around all day so I checked the heartbeat and found that at 11 o'clock there were a lot of comments. So I figured there must be something interesting then so I went back and trawled through them. And it was interesting. I learned that Alex buys shopping but doesn't put it away unless Christine tells him to and that he has difficulty remembering whether or not he is wearing a coat.

    It's true Christine controls everything :)

    There are several browsers where SVG doesn't work - apparently Firefox has trouble with it if there are non-SVG files on the same page, Internet Explorer barely supports it in any of its iterations and the other makers of browsers are "working towards support".

    IE6 barely works in IE6 to be fair

    :D Though it has to be said I can't get Facebook to work in anything except IE6 (it doesn't even like IE7 on my computer!)

  • Alianora La Canta13/03/2011 at 18:58

    i haven't tested heartbeat that well. the menu is old and well tested though. will tweak a bit, but it's good in IE9, FF4, Safari5 and Chrome10

    Of course, I can only see 5 hours at a time, but that's a hardware issue and the scrolling function offers a good workaround.

    I can confirm heartbeat does not work with the version of IE that came with my PDA - possibly because that barely supports images.

  • Steven Roy13/03/2011 at 19:13

    Hmm, not bad. Far too softly spoken though.

    You shouldn't be so critical! I don't think I've ever struggled to understand anything you've said. Ever. You have an amazing voice for radio.

    I hope that's more of a complement than having a face for radio :P

    Hehe, I appreciate that. Just looking back it sounds like I'm reading a lullaby rather than ramping up a race.

  • Steven Roy13/03/2011 at 21:06

    Hmm, not bad. Far too softly spoken though.

    I didn't notice it was soft when I watched it. Maybe the softness stops it becoming a string of joined up syllables and helps to make it easily understandable.

  • Alianora La Canta13/03/2011 at 21:06

    I hope that's more of a complement than having a face for radio :P

    If "face for radio" means "it's not good enough for a medium where it is visible", the equivalent would be "voice for books".

    Voices are pretty much essential for any radio format that isn't pure instrumental, so "voice for radio" would be as high a compliment as "face for the cinema".

  • Alianora La Canta13/03/2011 at 21:07

    Hehe, I appreciate that. Just looking back it sounds like I'm reading a lullaby rather than ramping up a race.

    sadly not, at least not enough at good enough speeds.

  • Alianora La Canta13/03/2011 at 21:11

    Are you saying if no-one was watching, you'd have the best podcast ever :P

    I think it's more "if no-one was charging for people watching, they'd have the best podcast ever" ;)

  • Alianora La Canta13/03/2011 at 21:12

    sadly not, at least not enough at good enough speeds.

    Clearly there's a gap in the market...

  • Mr C13/03/2011 at 21:12

    that is exactly it!

    "hypothetically the best podcast ever"

  • Mr C13/03/2011 at 21:13

    Clearly there's a gap in the market...

    bandwidth prices are rising, if anything.

  • Alianora La Canta13/03/2011 at 21:17

    bandwidth prices are rising, if anything.

    There'd still be space for a bulk discounter. Surely overheads don't rise completely linearly as amount of bandwidth produced rises?

  • Mr C13/03/2011 at 21:21

    There'd still be space for a bulk discounter. Surely overheads don't rise completely linearly as amount of bandwidth produced rises?

    ah i see. yeah, there are discounts. we use approx 2TB per month (although maybe 3TB now).

    if we used amazon for bandwidth, it's $0.150 per GB. until you use 40TB a month, when it drops to $0.100.

    http://aws.amazon.com/cloudfront/

    if we used amazon for bandwidth, it's $0.150 per GB. until you use 40TB a month, when it drops to $0.100.

    So you're too big for the standard model and too small for the one that would make more sense to you (which is presumably aimed at humongously-sized sites)? It's tough in the middle :(

    Hi. Was listening to a Manics gig on the radio but we seem to have ended up in different places

  • Alex Andronov13/03/2011 at 21:55

    There was on Giggles Radio too I believe... It's a great song and I stand by that ;)

    I went to this page and pressed the Listen Live button which gave me the popup I said about earlier.

    Not really, what in F1 terms has as little value as a loaf of bread? a Cog from HRT is about it. Actually, I think the bread is or more value in F1 circles....

  • lou13/03/2011 at 23:43

    Have you done any yet?

    yep.

    Well not as such.. it's the same effect. Basically it's done by moving the 2 parts of the camera to move the field of focus and it's depth. In theory if i took a large format camera to the top of a building and took a shot i could create a tiltshift effect like the digital versions. however it's so hard to move a large format anywhere i wont be doing that.

    You need a large format camera mounted on the back of a car

  • lou13/03/2011 at 23:48

    bit too expensive i think.. plus you have to put in the film, take out the dark slide and take the shot from beside the camera.. not sure it would be worth risking attaching it to a car :)
