Yesterday went by without a single breakout thread, which means it must have been relatively quiet in the world of Formula 1. Suddenly, it is Friday, and the end of the week already, which is always a good thing. Here's what we've been talking about:

  • Kubica spoke out yesterday, saying he was basically waiting for the Renault hearing before deciding which team his future lies with. This, I think, is the best silly season trail we have so far: Kubica to Williams instead, taking Rosberg's place, who is heading on to Brawn. Are there other trails longer that I have missed?
  • If you're looking for a change of pace, I released our first Media Future Change podcast yesterday. It's only short, and if you're interested in anything to do with the media, or the future, or... change, then you might want to check it out.
  • Back to F1, though, Ari Vatanen announced his cabinet for his presidential campaign, and for once he wasn't drowned under Renault news. It still didn't emerge with much fanfare though, and I'm starting to worry the member clubs will have forgotten who he is!

That'll do it for today. Let us know what you've got planned for the weekend - aside from listening to 12 hours of Sidepodradio, of course. I'll see you in the comments.

    Does SidePodRadio have an emergency kill switch where suddenly the cricket cowbell song is broadcast in case of nuclear holocaust or something?

    sidepodcastping is an auto alert for a new thread but Christine keeps beating it

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:12

    Right, I've warmed up the new daily...

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:14

    Has it been mentioned today that there may be a discussion soon on engine equalisation again?

  • Paul17/09/2009 at 23:15

    Has it been mentioned today that there may be a discussion soon on engine equalisation again?

    Everyone hates Mercedes. It's not their fault.

  • Steven Roy17/09/2009 at 23:15

    I saw that story earlier but I haven't seen any discussion here

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:16

    I don't

    At least they're not Toyota :)

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:17

    Are they going to keep doing this until every engine has the same power & torque curves?

  • Steven Roy17/09/2009 at 23:18

    Are they going to keep doing this until every engine has the same power & torque curves?

    I haven't heard of anyone making any changes this year. Clearly Renault's free pas to upgrade their engine last season was botched. How can you get a free upgrade and not end up with the best engine

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:19

    I haven't heard of anyone making any changes this year. Clearly Renault's free pas to upgrade their engine last season was botched. How can you get a free upgrade and not end up with the best engine

    Maybe they wanted the most stylish engine, in a French way. Who knows, it does seem silly

  • Alison17/09/2009 at 23:20

    I haven't heard of anyone making any changes this year. Clearly Renault's free pas to upgrade their engine last season was botched. How can you get a free upgrade and not end up with the best engine

    Why were they allowed? (I understand this is a major argument sparker, I just want a brief summary of the situation....)

  • Steven Roy17/09/2009 at 23:21

    Why were they allowed? (I understand this is a major argument sparker, I just want a brief summary of the situation....)

    Their engine was rubbish. They said they were following the spirit of the rules while others - Ferrari - stuck to the letter of the rules

  • Pat W17/09/2009 at 23:22

    Why were they allowed? (I understand this is a major argument sparker, I just want a brief summary of the situation....)

    They laid off half their engine department in the spirit of the new rules which said no more upgrades. Everyone else kept plugging away at tiny changes and got better so Renault got left behind. Flavio complained.

  • Alison17/09/2009 at 23:22

    There's a man on the tv biting into a head of garlic as if it was an apple..... I find this very distressing!

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:24

    Their engine was rubbish. They said they were following the spirit of the rules while others - Ferrari - stuck to the letter of the rules

    i.e. They got caught out by the rules

    Like the whingers with the double diffusers issues earlier this year

    [Not smart enouugh to interpret in the best way, which any good engineer should do]

  • Alison17/09/2009 at 23:25

    [Not smart enouugh to interpret in the best way, which any good engineer should do]

    To be honest, didn't one team (Red Bull?) come up with it, go to the FIA for some clarity and get told it was against the rules?

  • Paul17/09/2009 at 23:26

    Like the whingers with the double diffusers issues earlier this year

    and look what happened there. The FIA do not want anyone to have an advantage

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:27

    To be honest, didn't one team (Red Bull?) come up with it, go to the FIA for some clarity and get told it was against the rules?

    They're the law makers....

    To be honest, didn't one team (Red Bull?) come up with it, go to the FIA for some clarity and get told it was against the rules?

    Yup. Very odd, considering they have Newey on board.

    Morning, everyone. TGIF!

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:30

    They're the law makers....

    They enforce it

    The overtaking working group came up with it and Ross Brawn said last year that their was a gaping loophole but they wouldn't listen

    Bet he was laughing his socks off by April

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:31

    Hey Journeyer

    Do you have a meeting in Brussels next August?

    Can you arrange one?

  • Nick17/09/2009 at 23:31

    To be honest, didn't one team (Red Bull?) come up with it, go to the FIA for some clarity and get told it was against the rules?

    I think their concept was more drastic from what i had heard

  • Journeyer17/09/2009 at 23:34

    Do you have a meeting in Brussels next August?

    Hmmm... We have an office in Brussels, but I don't work with anyone there. Will see what I can do...

  • Alison17/09/2009 at 23:34

    Okay definitely more fool them then to abandon the whole idea rather than just going back a step.

  • Nick17/09/2009 at 23:35

    They went with the pull-rod thing which has worked for them quite well I think

    If they had KERS, they'd be something else

    Brawn's engine solution came too late for that

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:37

    Sprout research is another good reason...

    A friend had a weekend in Brussels and he asked several people about their sprouts and they had no idea what he was talking about :)

  • Bassano Clapper17/09/2009 at 23:42

    Unless you're talking about my curtain pole, you lost me around here....

    Push-rod vs pull rod suspension

    BBC did a thing on it earlier in the year

    Allows Newey's design to be much more tightly packaged at the rear which is probably contributing to the Renault engine failures in the Red Bull.

    [Less cooling most likely]

  • Steven Roy17/09/2009 at 23:42

    I can see my abu dhabi tickets floating out the window... *sob*

    Maybe 5 live will let me have a mat in the corner of their studio in return for a local guide...

  • Journeyer18/09/2009 at 00:04

    same question?

    i kinda drained my F1 money for the month since i bought that new F1 book... will have to get back to you on that one. ;)

  • Paul18/09/2009 at 00:04

    you just need a confirmation from joe. good man.

    Ah, OK, so I await his email then. No worries

  • me18/09/2009 at 00:05

    booo :(

  • lou18/09/2009 at 00:05

    Aha, if that's the case, sign me up for a weekend grandstand then :-)

    I vote we split up on Friday for exploration purposes. I will be wandering the track. On Saturday and Sunday I would make full use of the grandstand.

    as long as i don't get left on my own i'm happy to do anything... i'd either be overcome with excitement and go and get myself lost... or i'd have a map and get lost anyway...

  • Nick18/09/2009 at 00:05

    booo :(

    It is pretty late in the season...

  • Paul18/09/2009 at 00:05

    you just need a confirmation from joe. good man.

    It's a bit like Alex's book. I have been meaning to get GP+ for ages. I just need enough guilt-prompting to do it.

  • me18/09/2009 at 00:06

    It's a bit like Alex's book. I have been meaning to get GP+ for ages. I just need enough guilt-prompting to do it.

    I have a feeling not everyone will want to do the grandstand

    Two parties that will meet up before and after the sessions I reckon

  • me18/09/2009 at 00:06

    a challenge? what type of challenge?

    don't know. we'll have a think.

  • Bassano Clapper18/09/2009 at 00:07

    booo :(

    It is pretty late in the season...

    Good point

    Come March, I may be up for it

  • Paul18/09/2009 at 00:07

    hehe. we need alex to plug gp+ then.

    I now have both. Friday has been good to me :D

  • Nick18/09/2009 at 00:07

    It's a bit like Alex's book. I have been meaning to get GP+ for ages. I just need enough guilt-prompting to do it.

    now being a subscriber to both...

    It is defiantly better than autosport's attempt to copy it.

  • Journeyer18/09/2009 at 00:07

    booo :(

    it's a good book, i promise. :) will probably write a guest post on it during a non-F1 week.

  • Pat W18/09/2009 at 00:07

    I have a feeling not everyone will want to do the grandstand

    Possibly. I also think there could be a split between covered/uncovered. I'm looking at pics and the uncovered has a far better view, IMO.

  • me18/09/2009 at 00:07

    It is pretty late in the season...

    it doesn't matter. you're buying nearly 50 magazines for the price. everytime you need to win an argument on SPC, look at the history you can delve into.

  • Nick18/09/2009 at 00:08

    Come March, I may be up for it

    The archives are great though... they will kepp me going though the winter... I read the first one then decided to save them...

  • lou18/09/2009 at 00:08

    I have a feeling not everyone will want to do the grandstand

    i would be able to do a grandstand i think... (dad will be paying so it's up to him :D )

    Two parties that will meet up before and after the sessions I reckon

    makes sense :)

  • lou18/09/2009 at 00:08

    don't know. we'll have a think.

    i'm worried now...

  • me18/09/2009 at 00:08

    Come March, I may be up for it

    if i lent you our copy (shhh, don't tell anyone) of this weeks. would that temp ya?

  • Paul18/09/2009 at 00:08

    it doesn't matter. you're buying nearly 50 magazines for the price. everytime you need to win an argument on SPC, look at the history you can delve into.

    That's why I was always going to get GP+. I have a pile of old Autosports and would much rather some PDFs

    it doesn't matter. you're buying nearly 50 magazines for the price. everytime you need to win an argument on SPC, look at the history you can delve into.

    That's why they invented Google

    But I take your point, that is an excellent feature of GP+

  • me18/09/2009 at 00:09

    two parties works for me. Put me in the grandstand party ;) i shall explore on friday but want to be sitting pretty at eau rouge for qualy and race :D

  • Bassano Clapper18/09/2009 at 00:09

    if i lent you our copy (shhh, don't tell anyone) of this weeks. would that temp ya?

    To be honest, I bet I could find it IF I wanted it.

    I would rather pay for it though as I have a lot of respect for Joe's journalism

    When has F1 ever been a cheap hobby? It never was here...

  • Pat W18/09/2009 at 00:11

    because of the buy before october 31 discount those prices are up to $300 cheaper than i could get for 2009. As for covered id put my hand up for gold 4 at eau rouge.

    Gold 4 is uncovered, you could be thinking of 3

  • Nick18/09/2009 at 00:11

    Yay. First time I've heard that!

    My excitement for the year builds as the year unfolds. Reading the archives won't be the same

    I'll do a deal, I'll sign up in the off season. I'd have to have a full year, no point in it ending next Sep if I don't renew

  • Alison18/09/2009 at 00:24

  • me18/09/2009 at 00:25

    i just remember struggling to say the name during the parade lap, because it seemed to have too many eee's. then she turns up in the renault garage and i wasn't invited. if that doesn't equal moderation for life, i don't know what does?

  • Bassano Clapper18/09/2009 at 00:25

    oh. righto. is it the way she types?

    Next time your talking to Joe, maybe you could suggest a bit more info on the GP+ page about subscribing - like, how to do it and what happens? Being a very trusting fellow, I just paid first, then went looking for instructions, but the site doesn't actually say how the process works....

    Not sure about Mic, but you can test your audio

  • Steven Roy18/09/2009 at 01:03

    Skype has a system where you can test your mic levels and everything right?

    Yes. You can phone in and leave a message and it will play it back to you. It's called Echo / Sound test

  • Nick18/09/2009 at 01:03

    Dunno

    We may need a single point of source for that

    That's a lot of money floating about

    Small groups is more likely

    you weren't putting enough real butter on when you made vegemite on toast with the real stuff then

    there is some relationship between twisties and vegemite but I can't remember exactly what. Twisties are made from vegemite maybe? Work is keeping me from my research!

    I'm just 2 timezones away from you, yet I managed to top the lists. Since you're around here roughly as long as I am daily, I can easily see you top. :D

  • Amy18/09/2009 at 05:05

    there was plenty of butter but vegemite sucks. Australian twisties suck too, that must be the link you are thinking of

    Morning everyone!

    I have just subscribed to GP+ now I will have the ideal way to keep up with all of the exciting action of the rest of the season.

    The main question with a GP+ subscription is... why don't you have one?

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 05:40

    Our island is bigger!

    Good to see you got the book Paul!

  • Journeyer18/09/2009 at 05:57

    Now THAT is a plug! :D

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 06:01

    Now THAT is a plug! :D

    Now this book that you bought Journeyer... Does it contain a detailed archive of all of the goings on from each and every race weekend going back to the beginning of the 2007 season?

    ;)

  • Paul18/09/2009 at 06:02

    Good to see you got the book Paul!

    Yeah, cool. I look forward to reading this weekend.

    Yay!

  • Paul18/09/2009 at 06:03

    Good to see you got the book Paul!

    My problem now, is how to get it signed by the author.

    Might have to send it along with Amy on her trip

  • Paul18/09/2009 at 06:05

    WooHoo! I have my GP+ subscription from Joe.

    I (heart) his random username

  • Amy18/09/2009 at 06:06

  • Journeyer18/09/2009 at 06:07

    Now this book that you bought Journeyer… Does it contain a detailed archive of all of the goings on from each and every race weekend going back to the beginning of the 2007 season?

    No. BUT, it does have accurate replicas of a whole bunch of stuff, like cutaway drawings of a Lotus car from the 60s, Stirling Moss' contracts with Maserati and Cooper, and race programmes from British GPs in the 1940s and 1950s. :D

  • Paul18/09/2009 at 06:09

    Oh dear. I think GP+ must be connected to me by a wet piece of string. Downloading a PDF is going to take 10 hours?!

    Or perhaps Germany.

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)18/09/2009 at 07:00

    Has anyone linked to Martin Brundle's opinion on the Renault saga yet?

    I heart this quote:

    His rationale is that his contractual option hadn’t been taken the previous month so he was stressed and wanted to please the team. Try waiting the whole winter to sign a race-by-race contract days before the first grand prix of the season — that’s stress, but still not enough to crash a car intentionally.

    Quite.

    As Martin says the loser here is the sport.

    In many ways I expect this kind of thing from Flav. He never believed in the sporting aspect and is always going on about Entertainment... A driver winning from 15th place in an exciting new venue!

    Now thinking back... Do think Luca Montazemolo was getting at what I think he was getting at when he called the Singapore Grand Prix a circus:

    The Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo poured scorn on last Sunday's Singapore grand prix, calling the track a "circus" and describing the use of the safety car as humiliating for formula one.

    one of my non F1 friends who I said wouldn't even know all this was happening actually asked me about it today.

    him: "how is crashing race fixing? isn't crashing a bad thing?"

    I didn't even bother trying to explain how crashing in this case helped the team because I was quite sure it'd go over his head.

    Nick Heidfeld and Robert Kubica... were forced out of qualifying at the Italian Grand Prix when their engines stopped - but the teams had hoped the problems could be easily repaired, allowing the units to be brought back into action.

    http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/78693

    But their engines went during qualifying, so they're not allowed to use them again anyway under the rule to prevent teams having a qualifying engine. Correct?

    But their engines went during qualifying, so they're not allowed to use them again anyway under the rule to prevent teams having a qualifying engine. Correct?

    Depends what broke, if it was an axillary part then they can just replace that, but it didnt look like something like that

  • Maverick18/09/2009 at 08:51

    It shouldn't matter what they repair, an engine removed between qualifying and the race cannot be used again.

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 09:01

    Well, I can think of one :)

    :)

  • Amy18/09/2009 at 09:04

    Morning :)

    buongiorno!

  • Alison18/09/2009 at 09:06

    buongiorno!

    Buongiorno Amy!

  • Alison18/09/2009 at 09:08

    On that note, goodbye. My sister has missed her bus to work. I'm gonna have to drive her in :(

  • Maverick18/09/2009 at 09:08

    Well, I can think of one :)

    FIA could throw him out if he came back

  • James18/09/2009 at 09:08

    i need a quick show of hands... who here is not a grandprix+ subscriber?

    can we convince you to sign up? joe is flippin' ace and everyone should be a subscriber.

    I know I'm late on this but I have been reading all the comments, I don't and if had lots more money and time that would convince me ;)

    Story from Autosport - it looks like Lotus are looking for an experienced F1 team manager to take on the role early next year.

    Hmmm... let me think now... F1 team managers, with recent experience, but now out of work.....

    Well, I can think of one :)

    :)

    I don't think they will take him though.

  • Jon Waldock18/09/2009 at 09:08

    boo! see ya

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:09

    Yay, Friday nights.

    I even have a good book to read!

  • Amy18/09/2009 at 09:10

    On that note, goodbye. My sister has missed her bus to work. I'm gonna have to drive her in :(

    arrivederci!

    (my italian is soooo good ;) )

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:10

    GP+ is 67 pages. I'm not sure I can print that on the color laser printer at work :-(

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:10

    arrivederci!

    (my italian is soooo good ;) )

    Will that help in Belgium and Germany?

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 09:11

    I even have a good book to read!

    Woohoo!

  • Christine18/09/2009 at 09:11

    I know I'm late on this but I have been reading all the comments, I don't and if had lots more money and time that would convince me ;)

    Boo. It is not lots more money, just some more money. £25 for 50 issues is a bargain.

  • Christine18/09/2009 at 09:11

    GP+ is 67 pages. I'm not sure I can print that on the color laser printer at work :-(

    What??

  • Amy18/09/2009 at 09:12

    Will that help in Belgium and Germany?

    shhhhh

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:12

    What??

    I was thinking of printing it out to read - better not now.

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)18/09/2009 at 09:12

    GP+ is 67 pages. I'm not sure I can print that on the color laser printer at work :-(

    Does that not defeat the point of an e-magazine?

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 09:12

    GP+ is 67 pages. I'm not sure I can print that on the color laser printer at work :-(

    Why do you need to print it?

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:12

    Does that not defeat the point of an e-magazine?

    yes it does. I always want more than i can have

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:13

    Why do you need to print it?

    I don't really.

    ok, ok I'll read it on my computer.

  • Maverick18/09/2009 at 09:13

    Does that not defeat the point of an e-magazine?

    Not necessarily

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:13

    does the iphone read pdfs? I could try it on there.

  • James18/09/2009 at 09:13

    Boo. It is not lots more money, just some more money. £25 for 50 issues is a bargain.

    Shhh stop trying to convince me. :)

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:14

    What a great deal GP+ is. I think everybody should subscribe.

  • Christine18/09/2009 at 09:15

    Shhh stop trying to convince me. :)

    Thing is, you can't use money as an excuse. If you keep on reading back through the comments, Mr C is apparently issuing challenges in return for subscriptions.

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 09:15

    Yes

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 09:15

    Exactly... 50p an issue! Bargain of the century!

    1 weeks worth of coffee for 3 years worth of work from the man!

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:16

    Next challenge - how to get it on there......

    email?

  • Jon Waldock18/09/2009 at 09:16

  • paul18/09/2009 at 09:17

    1 weeks worth of coffee for 3 years worth of work from the man!

    Yeah, I mean, I've been a long time supporter. Had my subscription for, oh, something like 10 hours now.

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)18/09/2009 at 09:17

    Is this a #mediafuturechange story?

    The freesheet The London Paper will be given away for the last time on Friday - BBC News

    The reason is, this was a free paper targeted at "young people who get their news off the net" - but it failed and made losses...

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 09:17

    email?

    That's one good way... Or you can use the air share application

  • Christine18/09/2009 at 09:17

    I have no idea. I was asleep.

    ah yes. Maybe Stanza will read a PDF? I need to investigate

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 09:18

    The reason is, this was a free paper targeted at "young people who get their news off the net" - but it failed and made losses...

    The reason is that Rebekah Wade has always hated the concept of free papers and has just been promoted from running the sun to running News International UK. Or at least a big part of the reason.

  • Jon Waldock18/09/2009 at 09:19

    The reason is, this was a free paper targeted at "young people who get their news off the net" - but it failed and made losses...

  • Jon Waldock18/09/2009 at 09:23

    itpc://mediafuturechange.com/feed/

    for now atleast ;)

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 09:24

    Think of it this way... Imagine you got the chance to meet up with joe and he said, "I'll talk to you for an hour about F1 if you buy me a cup of coffee". You would wouldn't you!

    You wouldn't begrudge the man a cup of coffee would you?

    It's £2.50 in my local Starbucks for a cup of coffee.

    Joe has done 10 Asides for us. That's £25.

    So basically you're buying him a cup of coffee for each show and getting thrown in for free 3 years of back issues of an excellent magazine and the fastest way of getting a fully featured race weekend report every race for free.

  • Christine18/09/2009 at 09:24

    for those who have not been convinced, I quote the great Joe Saward:

    "going to Monza is such a pleasure because its the only proper race track left, the only place where you see cars really going for it big time. Spa is good but Monza is better so it’s always a bit of a treat so its always a bit of a treat."

    Go on. Treat yourself. ;)

  • Alex Andronov18/09/2009 at 10:55

    your end. in a tasty cookie.

    Right good that's what I thought...

    Can't you make the whole of the site cached and only clearing the cache every 5/10/20 minutes except for if you use doohicky / LCLT.

    For people who are use ye olde comments it won't work so well because pressing F5 will only give them the same page for the next 5/10/20 minutes straight out of the cache but you could put a link at the bottom of the comments but before the commenting box saying, "not seeing latest comments try the doohicky".

    And finally if regular users start complaining because they don't see the latest post on the homepage etc you could say that if the user is logged in "with a cookie" when they make a request it could request fresh pages.

    (I do that)

  • Christine18/09/2009 at 10:57

    What do you do? Start from the very beginning?

    I often go back to the beginning of a new subscription, I can't listen out of order, and I have so many that I am months behind and will still listen to things like TWiT even if they are old.

  • Pat W18/09/2009 at 10:58

    Have you listened to the Asides?

    Most of them, got a couple still to go. Tonight's plan is to eat into my 55hr podcast backlog.

    not one issue? do you not search them when doing blog research? it’s like a massive database on your desktop.

    I remember reading Melbourne's (the free one that convinced me to sign up). The only research I do is on Forix, usually for what's on this week.

    Think I have to vanish again.. 'til lunchtime ;-)

    The one thing I have to say about MFC is there is no link on the homepage to the RSS feed. I know its a work in progress but not everyone knows you can add feed to the address and find it ;)

  • me18/09/2009 at 11:01

    Can't you make the whole of the site cached and only clearing the cache every 5/10/20 minutes except for if you use doohicky / LCLT.

    wouldn't that be really annoying for the user?

    For people who are use ye olde comments it won't work so well because pressing F5 will only give them the same page for the next 5/10/20 minutes straight out of the cache but you could put a link at the bottom of the comments but before the commenting box saying, "not seeing latest comments try the doohicky".

    the weird thing will be, when you post a comment, it won't appear. it'll just vanish. and there won't/can't be a warning to alert the user what has happened. so then what does they do? my bet is they'll post it again and again or give up. we'll see repeat comments in dohhickey and they'll think the site's broken?

    And finally if regular users start complaining because they don't see the latest post on the homepage etc you could say that if the user is logged in "with a cookie" when they make a request it could request fresh pages.

    what about google? i can't really email sergy and tell him he needs to login to spc to index the latest content.

    Hello all

    Is future media change podcast in iTunes yet or destined to be?

  • me18/09/2009 at 11:16

    Google will only ever be 20 minutes behind is that the end of the world?

    the way the web is going, with things like pubsubhubbub. i'd say very soon 20 seconds could be too long.

    i get what you're saying, and the wp-cache plugin will do exactly as you describe. almost word for word in fact.

    i think though in my mind, wordpress is history in terms of what we do from now on, and the sooner we simply remove it, the better ;)

  • me18/09/2009 at 11:20

    Pubsub...wha?

    i commented the other day. it's what makes sidepodcast comments appear on friendfeed in real-time:

    http://friendfeed.com/sidepodcastlive

    in short, at the moment with your RSS reader, it checks every site every 15mins (roughly) or so and asks if the feed has updated.

    with pubsubhubbub, we tell your RSS reader that new content is available. so RSS feeds become like twitter streams, they update in real-time.

  • Amy18/09/2009 at 11:23

    ie8.

    so the people who still use 6/7 are doing so on the main site?

  • startledbunny18/09/2009 at 12:18

    can we kill IE 7 too?

    Kill IE full stop.

    Installed IE8 on my PC (homebrew), as part of windows upgrades, slowed it right down. Uninstalled it, went back to normal.

    Browser Fail.

    For us, it is not about price. The best example I can give you is that Mr C and I got married on a boat. We booked months and months in advance and by the time it got to it, neither of us particularly wanted to go, and we didn't have a very good time.

    do--which is eating and having sex--and some of them will settle down

    and become immobile," said Shaw, the lead author on a paper describing

    Home sweet home! I'm so tired. I hate having to work....

    Work is annoying isn't it. Especially when someone gives you a lot of work an hour before you leave on a Friday before a week off.

  • Jon Waldock18/09/2009 at 17:28

    :) I meant to come home after my duties as my sister's private taxi firm but then I got called into work!

    Booooo! I've got a busy weekend ahead as well.

  • Pat W18/09/2009 at 17:30

    Really? Wifey and I always wanted to go on a cruise so I'm interested to know what it's like...

    We didn't like it, but I think it is different for everyone.

    I personally don't see the attraction.

  • Amy18/09/2009 at 17:33

    I personally don't see the attraction.

    I don't do boats. I'll add it to the list of "things I don't do" which seems to have grown recently.

  • Pat W18/09/2009 at 17:33

    Booooo! I've got a busy weekend ahead as well.

    ooh not good. Thankfully I sorted out the bulk of mine and told them I'd look at the detail when I got back..

  • Jon Waldock18/09/2009 at 17:33

    I don't do boats. I'll add it to the list of "things I don't do" which seems to have grown recently.

    You don't do boats, but you do underwater trains?

  • ick18/09/2009 at 17:33

    I personally don't see the attraction.

    Me neither... Although it could be fun to do one which goes somewhere, like London to NY or LA to sydney.

    Going round the med or the Caribbean seems like something i would rather save up for and do myself

  • Amy18/09/2009 at 17:34

    don't get seasick down there.

    Ah I've never had that kind of job. I'm very used to just getting the daily routines out the way and trying to find some time to get special things out the way. I can't really not do something. The world would grind to a halt.

    I wonder why the head of branding gets to go to all the races. Sounds like a sweet job.

    I got dragged along to a couple of them, there were 2 problems

    1- I dont know anything about Art

    2- I find the concept of paying stupid amounts of money for Art... stupid

    But the alcohol and volevonts were lovely :D

  • Amy18/09/2009 at 18:22

    But the alcohol and volevonts were lovely :D

    oh yes I don't even like wine, but I drank it when it was free.

    I don't know anything about art either, the odd time I thought something was pretty it tended to be about $4000.

    That is the problem, but we can use to our advantage...

    If we steak out a gallery and find someone about to waste a load of money on something, we can take a photo of it and get them to pay for us all to go to spa instead. Easy.

    Tonight. Had psp skype issues with the psp. Just had time for the Bloggers and the filler. However, I promise, I promise, I promise it will be done tonight.

    Okay. Tonight really is the cut off, I'm afraid. As soon as it is Saturday, I can't take anymore submissions.

  • Nick18/09/2009 at 18:31

    Evening. Guess who gave in to Codemasters evil plan to make me buy their games even if certain demos put me off? ;)

    I was originaly going to get NFS but there spamvertising and a couple of bad reviews put me off.

    I was about to go out and get Dirt, but then realised there are way to many games coming out

  • Lukeh18/09/2009 at 18:31

    Good man! However, you may not see me on there for a bit since I am about to experience EA's latest offering ;)

    Was also tempted to get Shift but I've never, ever trusted the NFS series. at least with Dirt 2 I knew it was gonna be worth it. Do tell how Shift is though, if anything it's the most promising game to come from that series in years!

  • RG18/09/2009 at 18:31

    Test lap at the start of career mode is imminent.

  • Nick18/09/2009 at 18:35

    My mum said "what do you want for Christmas"

    and I said "travel insurance"

    so practical. So boring.

    Hehe, thats always something i skip, I think my dad decided to permanently insure me himself as i am apparently a liability

  • Scott Woodwiss18/09/2009 at 18:36

    These physics are going to take some getting used to!

    I'm rather pessimistic in everyday life so I always assume the worst will happen.

  • Scott Woodwiss18/09/2009 at 18:38

    I've noticed already the game lags behind a bit in relation to where I position the wheel.

  • Nick18/09/2009 at 18:40

    I'm rather pessimistic in everyday life so I always assume the worst will happen.

    hehe, i getcha, but if i spend money on something i always feel the need to use it! Which makes insurance a difficult purchase...

    Hello Sidepodchums.

    Anyone interested in cricket and want to go to watch ODI (your guess is as good as mine) vs. Australia on Sunday in Durham?

    I won two tickets through Vodafone via a competition they did on Twitter today which neglected to actually say it's all the way up t'North.

  • RG18/09/2009 at 18:46

    Probably not I'm afriad. Tis a bit short notice and I think I have a bit too much to do on Sunday. Had you won on Monday and the game was Saturday, I'd have them.

    Is it possible to take one of the existing letter and fashion some kind of N? Because I did fancy stuff, but there was no N. :(

  • Scott Woodwiss18/09/2009 at 19:34

    This already awesome day just got better! :D

    My aunt Jo who runs 5DAY Intensive Training Courses, which is who I'm getting lessons with (for free because they're cancellations ;) ) has just been on the phone to Mum and she's said in my week off I can sit in on the theory lessons in the test centre and get my theory test done during next week! :D

    We can fill in gaps with them or if there are no gaps release them after the event. I would much rather have too much material at this stage.

  • Pat W18/09/2009 at 19:56

    Please feel free to ditch mine, it was terrible

    I was going to do one earlier in the week, then a hundred things got in the way including computer troubles. Besides I'm still massively behind on blog posts so there's no point.

  • Andy Taylor18/09/2009 at 19:57

    It's Sunday. Stp panicking

    Phew. That could have been tricky as I'm working tomorrow and then going out and I have to be at work right across the time that the Cooking show is on, so we have to record LPG tonight.

    Damn, I also just remembered I need to set up my portable photo printer for tomorrow night!

    You do realise that if you do that you'll render the site inaccessible to just about anyone viewing from a British public library (since they are nearly all on IE6 or IE7 and locked into that solution by their suppliers)?

    i don't want to kill this site's ability to be read by IE7. i actually want to kill IE7.

    eg. render it useless. make it kaput. no more. an ex-browser :)

    then no library in the world could use it.

    Because Flavio does not appear to know how to talk sense into a radio system when a Grand Prix is underway. That was the strangest of several odd utterances that appeared in the Renault radio transcript for Singapore 2008.

    Many years ago when I lived in Glasgow, Partick (Crow Rd area) was reasonably nice. Failing that if you don't mind being out of town a bit, go for somewhere like Bishopbriggs.

    I can’t find a thing on “Yutaw taw” either {Comment #747}

    I've found a reference to Eutaw Creek and Taw Caw Creek, both of which are in the USA. Perhaps Flavio's utterance was an obscure reference to this?

    I'm scratching my head here...

  • Steven Roy18/09/2009 at 20:33

    You should. Everyone should have some involvment in the day

  • Steven Roy18/09/2009 at 20:35

    Somebody has to ask the questions. That's my job

    Its best not to try to understand Flav it could lead you to dangerous places.

  • Steven Roy18/09/2009 at 20:36

  • Alianora La Canta18/09/2009 at 20:42

    Why would you need to live comment from a public library? {Comment #1148}

    Because there are a lot of bored and not-particularly-wealthy teenagers out there that don't have their own computer and therefore use the ones in their local library to do anything computer-related. Since live commenting is computer-related, that's what they'd use.

  • Steven Roy18/09/2009 at 20:44

    Hmmm ever practical Steven. I was planning on just keeping my lease on my flat. What else am I going to do with my stuff??

    That is always difficult. I have lost track of the amount of furniture I have abandonded in various places

  • Alianora La Canta18/09/2009 at 20:45

    i don’t want to kill this site’s ability to be read by IE7. i actually want to kill IE7.

    eg. render it useless. make it kaput. no more. an ex-browser :)

    then no library in the world could use it. {Comment #1151}

    And then, unless you were prepared to pay for the labour to install a browser you liked on the computers in question, no public library would have internet access!

    IE6 is slightly better than no browser at all...

  • Andy Taylor18/09/2009 at 20:46

    IE6 is slightly better than no browser at all...

    I disagree.

  • me18/09/2009 at 20:47

    And then, unless you were prepared to pay for the labour to install a browser you liked on the computers in question, no public library would have internet access!

    Why would you have to pay for labour? there are already people working in the libraries, tell them to do it...

  • Sara18/09/2009 at 20:49

    They already have plenty to do.

  • Nick18/09/2009 at 20:52

    They already have plenty to do.

    It would take 2 mins per terminal, say the average library has 10 computers that's 20 mins, spread over a week thats 4 mins per day.

    I am sure it wouldnt be too much trouble, unless there is a union involved

  • Maverick18/09/2009 at 20:54

    I don't really have anyone with enough space/goodwill to leave my stuff with though. It's not really an option. I might ask my landlord if I can have a rent reduction for the empty period.

    But why would you be locked down if you work there? {Comment #1163}

    Because IT and libraries, in public libraries, are never the same department. The office politics derive from their employers, who are, ultimately, the government. As such, every department seems to be a bit precious about allowing people from other departments to improve stuff. The rigmorole involved in getting a broken mouse replaced was unbelievable...

    We're not allowed because we're not professional IT people. Even though some of us are probably better at the IT stuff than the IT department if my experience is anything to go by.

  • Alianora La Canta18/09/2009 at 22:08

    It would take 2 mins per terminal, say the average library has 10 computers that’s 20 mins, spread over a week thats 4 mins per day.

    I am sure it wouldnt be too much trouble, unless there is a union involved {Comment #1234}

    We have trouble booting the computers in 2 minutes, let alone doing anything else on them at that speed.

    Most of my colleagues didn't know how to install software and certainly don't know how to bypass the IT department's anti-tampering software to do it (bear in mind that there isn't even a Start button or a DOS prompt on the "public" computers).

    At the start of my job at the last library I worked at, the documentation pertaining to employment that was supposed to be accessible at all times never appeared. I was told the problem was that nobody could be bothered to get round to converting the file format into one the intranet could use. After explaining to my boss how such a thing could be easily done in about an hour with free software already installed on the library computers (meaning IT simply needed to upload the finished file) and volunteering to do the task free, the boss said he'd make sure it was done if I wrote a letter explaining the matter (i.e. a formal project request). I did so... ...and six months later when I left, nothing had happened. Such is the speed at which things are not done in the libraries I'm familiar with.

    All the council's libraries would have to be upgraded simultaneously and they'd also need the correct front-ends reconfigured to function with the new underlying browser and applied at the same time. That is a lot of hours of work before even one computer could have the installation done, and then the system would need to be taken down in a quiet day... ...when, if we were lucky, one staff member to two computers could just about get the job done.

    That's not the work of a moment or a penny!

    With such a descrption it sounds like it would be a miricle if the computers could find google, i think expecting people to use them for live commenting might be a bit much! {Comment #1409}

    The machines can find search engines of all kinds extremely easily when set up (as in, it's a one-click job from the front end's main menu). They're so much effort to change because they need to be completely foolproof for the general public to use. Live commenting wouldn't present a problem either, apart from the browser compatibility issue.

    It's a bit like a swan - looks really elegant and effortless from the lakeside, but it's really lots of frantic paddling underwater.

    I didnt realise you worked in a library though… do you stock books with missing first pages? {Comment #1409}

    I used to work in several libraries until the work dried up. I've been trying to become a professional librarian since I was 14, but it looks like I'll have to settle for admin work...

    None of the library services I've worked in have a copy of your book, but if someone asked for it, it would be bought in and made available for borrowing. Why not go to your local library and start the ball rolling by asking to reserve a copy of your own book?

  • Pat W18/09/2009 at 22:56

    1st album was the best for me

    1st ok. 2nd genius. 3rd meh.

    Although I have a feeling I might like the 3rd if I heard it again, but I gave it to my sister a looong time ago

    You can do a degree in it you know…. My mum did. {Comment #1577}

    I did a degree in it. That, and an employer which didn't understand or care about its basic legal obligations, was my downfall :(

  • Alison19/09/2009 at 00:00

    Gosh! Why can't you get a job then? How awful!

  • Alianora La Canta19/09/2009 at 22:38

    Gosh! Why can’t you get a job then? How awful!

    Halfway through the degree, the entry requirements for the profession changed so that anyone with five good GCSEs could become a librarian (until then it was a degree profession). Of course, this meant that by the time I graduated, people had five more years of working experience than me. Also, "transferable skills" were in vogue, so employers didn't care whether the work was in libraries or not; they simply thought any work was better than having spent five years studying the subject. If I'd worked in a shop or as a cleaner or something full-time after leaving secondary school instead of doing sixth form and university, I'd probably have been a librarian continuously for the past three years.

    The one employer that did a practical test to see how good people were at actual library stuff before recruiting worked out I was considerably better than the people who hadn't studied librarianship prior to applying. They took me on and then did a lot of stuff that was illegal because the staff were uncomfortable with anyone who:

    a) didn't live within walking distance of the library

    b) could solve problems instead of just moaning about them

    c) cared about the job more than the office politics

    d) thought such things as discrimination laws and customer service were for applying not just paying lip service to

    e) didn't think exactly like them

    f) had a brain and used it

    Being in all six categories, it was inevitable there'd be differences of opinion. What wasn't inevitable was the unremitting bullying I received from the staff, actively encouraged by their bosses (and this turned out to be the case at least three levels up the hierarchy).

    The council consistently blamed me for its failings and eventually dismissed me. It claimed "irrational behaviour" - the "irrational" part being me attempting to serve customers instead of listening to other staff members bullying me and then attempting to calm them down when they threatened and verbally attacked me. The dismissal came in the middle of a review which was conducted in a way clearly breaching my contract and my appeal letter was ignored. The person who dismissed me admitted the council would also lie on my reference, which meant that legally I couldn't refer any future employer to them. The only reason it hasn't gone to court is because I can't afford it, which I probably could if the council would pay me the £1000 or so it still owes me in salary.

    The other councils, not being able to get a "most recent employer" reference, have since refused to interview me, even though this goes against their recruitment policies. Hopefully now that I have the one-day-per-week voluntary work as a receptionist to fall back on, councils may start considering me again, but I'm not hopeful.

    No, not at all. I'm really interested! My mum was a librarian for 15 years. That is really awful. I hate companies that force you stand up and be the shining example or combat their racist attitudes.

    That aspect surprised me. Given that they made 400 people redundant a couple of weeks after dismissing me and also had to put down a rebellion in another branch library shortly beforehand, the council clearly needed to change. They just never worked it out however many times or however many people told them!

    I see. In this case, racism is the one thing the council in question refrained from doing - there was a Polish recruit brought in and he got a lot more respect than I did (despite being the other member of the branch to commit the "sin" of being competent). Proximity to library was the geographic restriction, not nationality

    I got quotes and it was made clear that "every last penny" I had wouldn't cover the costs of getting the court case fought unless I also had the £1000 under dispute. Whether this is another example of discrimination or simply a reflection of the cost of going to court is unclear. Catch-22.

  • Alison19/09/2009 at 23:02

    Alia, have you been to your local Law Advice Centre? They should be able to at least give you some good advice for free and one of them might give you ongoing advice if they take an interest in the case.

  • Alianora La Canta19/09/2009 at 23:03

    Employment tribunal? {Comment #1606}

    Even more expensive than small claims (due to the length of time I was there being less than a full year, I'd have to go to a standard court and sue under common law rather than use the tribunal proper).

  • jackie/saltire19/09/2009 at 23:05

    Have you thought about doing something else, like teaching maybe. Go back to Uni for a post-grad course or is it only librarianship you want?

    I think the first step is to go to a small claims court for your unpaid wages. That should be pretty straightforward! There aren't really two sides to that. They owe you money, they have to give it to you.... I doubt they'd even bother showing up at court.

  • Alianora La Canta19/09/2009 at 23:05

    Can't even get an appointment with them - their phone line is inaccessible to me and their offices never appear to be open!

    The CILIP advisory phone line turned out to be garbled to the point of inaccessibility too. It's frustrating that the system supposed to help this sort of problem turns out to be yet another set of obstacles :(

    I've thought of teaching, but Dad (who did it at college level for several years) is highly against it because he thinks I wouldn't be able to deal with the less-manageable students. Although I have a basic adult teaching qualification (and a First Aid Instructor qualification), there seems little point in getting further qualifications in the area unless I have some chance of being able to do work in the sector afterwards. Especially since it took the best part of two years to get the Student Loans Company to stop trying to take me to court due to their inability to calculate loan/grant entitlement correctly last time...

    I'm currently on the path to getting qualified for admin work because that appears to be the one other area of work where I actually stand a chance of being able to do the job at the end of studying (disabilities can be a real inconvenience sometimes). I still want to be a librarian but I suspect whether I can be one again is largely out of my hands.

    You honestly don't need a lawyer to use the small claims court. As long as you're claiming under £5000 there's enough information on their site to let you prepare yourself. Most of the evidence is submitted in a written form so it's not so daunting. As I said, they'll most likely pay up if they're issued with a summons.

    I'm pretty sure it is, but I don't know specifically. I'd really look into it. It only costs £30 to file a claim.... (At least it did last year, it might have gone up a little since then....)
