Congratulations everyone, we've made it to the 200th day of 2010. Give yourselves a pat on the back, 200 days since New Years Day. Where on earth has the time gone? We are half way through the F1 season and have witnessed the World Cup, Wimbledon and of course, the Open Championship of golf. (Promise, this is the last mention of the sport until the Ryder Cup). And you know what all these posts have required? Guest posters like myself. Mrs C pays her tribute and I'd love to say thanks to them for allowing me to write the daily (even if this one is on course to be so very late). So, to the bulletpoints:

  • Of course, the fantastic Character Cup is still going on this site. Yesterday saw Jenson Button trounce Adrian Sutil to set up an exciting Second Round tie with none other than former teammate Rubens Barrichello. The current tie is between the two returnees of Michael Schumacher and Pedro de la Rosa. Of course I don't want to influence voting but if you don't vote for Pedro you are crazy. And do check out the lovely and beautiful wiki page that goes along with this. Comeback.
  • There was more guest postery from Leigh, as he went from an essay to a quick newsbite of last nights IRL race. By all accounts it was a poor race, with too many yellows apparantly. Stoppage.
  • Can I go one week without mentioning Tai Woffinden? No, no I can't. Why? Well it is the Speedway World Cup this weekend and Britain have every chance of finishing third in the race-off. Like every single year. No matter its usually a whole load of fun and five men going all guns for their country. And Finland are in it this year too, just for the Finnish fans out there. There's just a 99% chance of them being knocked out in the semi-finals and being dead last. Outsiders.

And if speedway doesn't float your boat, well, Formula 1 decides to come at us once again for the German Grand Prix at the much worse Hockenheim circuit. Should just stay at the Nurburgring I say. And if thats just too far away for you, well you can always look forward to the European Championships of Fencing from Leipzeg. It'll probably be on Eurosport.

Just before you stop reading and start to comment, remember that today marks the anniversary of the incident which cost the life of Formula 2 driver Henry Surtees. Spare a thought.

    hiiii R.G daily :)

  • Leigh O'Gorman18/07/2010 at 23:27

    How time flies - one year since Henry Surtees sad passing. ...and then there was that monumental accident at Brands yesterday too for the Seat Eurocup race

    Mental.

    Good daily RG

    Mental.

    Not that much further around the circuit either. Brands needs to sort out it's safety. I love the openness of the circuit but you just can't have those kind of speeds on a circuit with so little barriers.

    Is RG still around? am looking into making a wiki discussion page..am wanting to get this okay'd by him as he knows much more about it than me.

    Hi.

    I would say its okay...as long as you know what you are doing because I have no idea myself...

  • Steven Roy18/07/2010 at 23:32

    Amy

    Did you see Heikki's new toy?

    He knows it needs to be dark right?

  • lou18/07/2010 at 23:34

    To bring Amy into this daily, i think wave might be the way to go...am going to try and great a wave or whatever it's called and try that and the wiki... we'll only know what works if we try it, and i don't want to upset anyone by discussing Spa or anything. Doohickey is a happy awesome place with lots of awesome people who all deserve to be happy and not left out or annoyed by any comments. Spa is going to be great, but i can imagine 6 weeks of comments about planning it might get ever so slightly tedious.

  • Steven Roy18/07/2010 at 23:34

    He knows it needs to be dark right?

    No idea

  • amy via alistair18/07/2010 at 23:34

    yay monday!

    i am hoping to finally see toy story 3 today after trying the last 2 mondays and failing :D

    i have no idea either! i was hoping you would know.. if i make a mess of it.. it can be deleted right?

  • RG18/07/2010 at 23:35

    I'd assume so...

    awesome!

    i've not tried with the new wiki yet. please don't kill me if i break it..

    It's hard to break a wiki

  • Journeyer19/07/2010 at 00:15

    Of course I don't want to influence voting but if you don't vote for Pedro you are crazy.

    Then call me crazy. :P

    Morning.

  • lou19/07/2010 at 00:16

    right so... the wiki hates me.. and it's taken me ages... but i think i've managed to make a discussion page within the right section of the Wiki...

    http://sidepodcast.wikia.com/wiki/Talk:Spa_Grand_Prix_2010

    i see no reason why it can't work. seems like a good place for discussions, i'll be adding a google wave though. just so we have everything covered. i hope mrs C doesn't mind me creating the discussion page..

  • RG19/07/2010 at 00:17

    Morning.

    Morning crazy person ;)

  • Journeyer19/07/2010 at 00:17

    you have to register. only takes a minute, no confirmation emails needed or anything. it's almost too easy :)

  • Bassano19/07/2010 at 00:19

    Hi Journeyer, btw

  • lou19/07/2010 at 00:27

    Feels like I'm communicating from 1995 :)

    :D i like it.

    i like the idea of wave too. mainly because we can make sure everyone who is going to Spa is included but if they aren't really into the planning bit and only occasionally want to have a quick catch up of discussions (like Lukeh) they can just open Wave when they want.

  • Bassano19/07/2010 at 00:27

    And to Mr Roy, of course

    I have no idea if Google Wave will work on an iPad or iPhone

    I think it's probably witchcraft, personally ;)

  • Journeyer19/07/2010 at 00:29

    Yes, it works there. IIRC, Google made an iPhone-friendly page.

    well if i could have your wave info we'll find out :) it's telling me i can add any email address to the wave so it should be easy.

  • Bassano19/07/2010 at 00:30

    Yes, it works there. IIRC, Google made an iPhone-friendly page.

    Alternatively, I now have Skype chat open untill the end of August

    Should do

    Have added you now to something, it could be wavey. Don't know :)

  • Steven Roy19/07/2010 at 00:35

    And to Mr Roy, of course

    What did I do?

  • Journeyer19/07/2010 at 00:35

    What did I do?

    I think he just said hello to you. ;)

  • Journeyer19/07/2010 at 00:36

    of course, the Open Championship of golf. (Promise, this is the last mention of the sport until the Ryder Cup).

    not a fan of the PGA Championship, then?

  • Steven Roy19/07/2010 at 00:36

    I think he just said hello to you. ;)

    It's a good few hours late for that since we have both been here all night

    it's very strange. but i kinda like it.

  • me19/07/2010 at 00:37

    i couldn't sleep. but i now know exactly why i have a problem with spa talk on this site. it is absolutely non-inclusive. it's a conversation between the people who are going (the have's) and not inclusive of the people who are not (the have nots).

    that's the opposite of everything we've ever tried to do with sidepodcast.

    here's an example of how the conversation earlier should have gone...

    personX: "a few of us are going on a long road trip, would the comments like to suggest some songs for us? we promise to make a playlist and play anything you suggest all the way there."

    ^^that is the sidepodcast way^^

    not... "us three are going on a road trip, lets discuss between ourselves what music WE will listen too in OUR car."

  • Bassano19/07/2010 at 00:38

    It's a good few hours late for that since we have both been here all night

    It was kind of a 'hello again' :)

  • Steven Roy19/07/2010 at 00:39

    ahh yes. okay, that does make sense mr c.

    wiki page is set up, as is the wave.

    ^^that is the sidepodcast way^^

    i like this idea alot. Closer to the time we should do this, and then we can comment reactions to the songs as they are played on the journey, involving the comments and making them part of the weekend too :)

  • Steven Roy19/07/2010 at 00:46

    I love wikipedia. It is quite incredible how a couple of words can be added to a good article and make you question every word of it. Unfortunately the one I have just found is not suitable for here

    and now i'm interested in the spa trip. easy.

    *hugs mr c*

    i need to work out internet roaming but i would love to be able to say to the comments something like... i'm looking for an aim for today photo wise... do you have suggestions?..

    would help me for things when i'm older like deadlines and working to a brief.. and i could probably get a blog post or two out of it... that's if the comments would find that interesting.

    roaming will be expensive, but that would be awesome. before then you could find out some classic pics of spa and ask people which pics stand out the most, and figure out where you should stand to recreate them.

    anyhow. i must try and sleep again.

  • Pat W19/07/2010 at 02:17

    Constructive couple of hours.

    Lou kindly set up a Google Wave so Spa people can get excited about the holiday in private. Also she made this wiki talk page, I haven't worked out how it is different to a normal wiki page but it is another space for notes.

    I made an infobox on the main Spa page and updated the travel one with more useful things than were there before.

    I think between us we're getting somewhere.

    may be all well and good now, the question is how long will that last. All the most expensive grandstands were sold out in Singapore for the first race. A year on I could roam around and sit more less anywhere I wished around Turns 1,2,3. Big chunks of those grandstands were totally empty ...

    I think they have deliberatly kept the number of grandstands low, its only a 50,000 capacity

    But the prices they are charging are huge compared to other events here, which are often heavily subsidised.

    I wonder if people have bought tickets asuming the big concerts will be happening again, i havent hard anything yet though

    Just catching up on the overnight stuff.

    Do I have to register for the new wiki or are the old details carried over?

    I set it up so that you don't *have* to register to post on the wiki, but you can set up your account again if you like. I figured that was a good compromise.

    Just before you stop reading and start to comment, remember that today marks the anniversary of the incident which cost the life of Formula 2 driver Henry Surtees. Spare a thought.

    can't believe it has been a year already since the Surtees and Massa accidents....

    No probs. See, the thing is, we always hear that it's nice to be in front of the home fans, how they raced here as a kid etc, but I want to know what Christian loves about going home to Germany rather than just racing there...

    I'm sure it's happened with British drivers a lot in the last 20 odd years

    I think if there was a new British driver next season for example, they'd have a hard time building up support with 2 successful and established drivers already. Why would a sponsor want to know? I'm sure they'd get more for their money sponsoring a driver with a proper fan base.

    Joe discusses the expansion of Lotus and makes an interesting point about the new Indycar rules:

    "With Formula 1 teams now being forced to reduce their aerodynamic development work, there is an opportunity for all those with more one wind tunnel to use the other to develop a bodywork package for the American market.

    Although the costs of these is being kept to a minimum – and profits would be limited – it would nonetheless provide F1 teams with an opportunity to have cars running in their livery in the United States."

    Question is, will Bernie let that happen?

  • F1Wolf19/07/2010 at 10:57

    Last week a BBC sub editor came up with one which I really liked... The story was about how the Anglican church had managed to stop a split in the church over bringing in Women bishops. The headline: "No sects please, we're bishops".

    Sadly this has now become: "What does women bishops decision mean for the Church?"

    i think people are coming to the conclusion that comments are becoming less and less useful in the online world.

    the problem is few people take the time to properly moderate discussion, because it's expensive and doesn't generate much income. i guess the quotes mean, you may have an opinion, but i really care not for many/most of them.

    I don't bother. I reposted (as linking wasn't allowed) an article on a forum where I thought it would be appreciated. Instead it got ripped apart and called one-sided.

    Even some of the comments I get are "You did it wrong". So we write these posts, which take ages to write and some people just tell you that it's wrong?

  • Alex Andronov19/07/2010 at 14:10

    i think comments have surpassed them in some ways. youtube for example, the comments are far worse than anything ever said on a lot of forums.

    So much of this is about broken window theory: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broken_windows_theory

    Comments work well here and on Joe's site and on smaller sites because people behave because they know that people are paying attention. Sometimes it gets out of hand but somebody will come along and sort things out.

    When the comments grow faster than the rate of users you realise that moderation doesn't scale terribly well.

    Interestingly I think one of the best attempts to fix this is the whole suite of StackExchange sites where they are trying not to fall into the problems of old usenet. What happens there is you earn reputation and you are allowed to do certain things like moderate only once the system learns to trust you. The idea being that then moderation can scale. It will be interesting to see if it works.

    comments work better in a niche environment, so it has a better chance of working by slicing the 'stacks' like that.

    comments on generic sites don't hold a huge amount of value to me, because they lack expert(ish) opinion. at least a comment on a site about web servers will at least only attract people with an interest in that subject.

    a niche within a niche is even better.

    however, almost none of the football comments were comments about an article. so that's a whole different thing again. there the post simply served as a means of collecting comments on a specific subject. live commenting posts are really about the moment of the event, serving almost no purpose after the fact.

    i'm not sure they even count as "comments"?

  • Alex Andronov19/07/2010 at 14:27

    i'm not sure they even count as "comments"?

    Indeed...

    a niche within a niche is even better.

    I mean look at this page... 8 thousand page views on a pretty niche subject which I was having problems with and couldn't find an answer to anywhere on the web:

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/30005/how-do-i-fire-an-event-when-a-iframe-has-finished-loading-in-jquery

    The signal to noise rate on the answers to my question is astonishingly high (as in all of the answers were worth reading). The correct answer can bubble to the top as people vote the answers up and then the asker marks one question as correct.

    If the situation changes people can edit the question to reflect the situation.

    i'm not sure they even count as "comments"?

    if you read a live thread back, i bet a good percentage make no sense without the live stream being shown in sync. maybe they need a different type of categorisation.

    i think there's probably three types of comment on sidepodcast:

    1) live discussion of an ongoing event (race, match or live show)

    2) responses to an article (feedback, corrections and opinion)

    3) new discussions created out of nowhere (daily)

    only point two affects newspapers, and that really only adds to the conversation if you have semi-knowlegable people responding. that's where niche content can be improved by comments.

    points one and three require no real knowledge of experience about anything. so any (moderated) discussion is good. thoughts?

    Absolutely... And it's also where the solution to a lot of that kind of stuff has been happening off site using things like twitter. People that I follow comment on stuff and draw my attention to stuff. If I agree then I retweet them or comment as well. If I don't then I unfollow or ignore them.

    it's interesting that the title of that thread really is the key in finding your information though.

    Indeed. They force you to ask the question in the title and will change it if necessary. The other interesting thing that they do is whereas on old sites they will get angry with you for writing duplicate questions here it doesn't matter so much. When people mark your question as a duplicate they realise you may have just written the ideal search title for google so your question is used as an alias to the existing question.

    i wonder if we should introduce titles into the daily post? it would be a complete break from the standard, and make peoples life more tricky, but i'd be interested to see what people came up with every day.

    I must admit it is quite fun crafting the titles. Before it was just pluck a random song lyric that might fit. Now it is - these are the words we want in it, how can we make it clever.

    The high fives at the end are fun too.

  • me19/07/2010 at 14:57

    although the google thing was the start of the conversation. internally christine says we shouldn't put any keywords in titles, because that sucks. and she's right.

    I didn't say no keywords, I said the keywords shouldn't be the be all and end all. You have turned down many a fine title of mine because of no silly keywords. Now that we compromise (and high five), it's better.

    the daily thing was more of a challenge for people to play with writing titles and give us something else to discover in the comments.

    my issue with finding things, is archived posts that i know exist but could be called anything under the sun.

  • Alex Andronov19/07/2010 at 15:23

    Talking of daily titles m'learned colleague Mr Fourstar has to solicit / cojole some of our collegues into doing certain things for him every day... So he sends out e-mails with a subject line like these:

    Tubular Tuesday

    Magical Monday

    Feral Friday

    ThrowingItDown Thursday

    He hasn't repeated himself once, he claims, in five years.

    Also every week he has to remind people to do something for a product called the Company Events Preview these too get e-mail subjects like: Colourful Estonian Pancakes and Cruelly Eliminated Portugal. Again no repeats in 5 years.

    The problem with the daily is it is so wide ranging that it is impossible to use something like tags to help search. You caould almost do with a summary of the topics discussed and set up a summary search. I am sure it would be utterly impossible though

  • Alex Andronov19/07/2010 at 15:25

    because pedro's wing failed in silverstone and i wanted to point out that wurz safely carried on with half a wing and that sauber weren't necessarily negligent by sending him out again with it in pieces.

    None in the school im in at the moment, and none at the last school I went to. I had one when i went to primary school. I think the problem is that male teachers are rare anyway, and so can pick and choose any job that they want and as long as they are of a good standard will get it, because male teachers are so saught after

    It is skewed a bit because the races are in different weeks. I can't quite get my head around why he moved higher when they removed a 14th position from this week a year ago...

    Did the people he passed in the rankings have an even worse result vs last year.

    He has the same number of points last week as he does this week, the points of those around him have actually gone down.

    I can't imagine driving a kart on a public road. Your back would be traashed in minutes. Those karts they are driving are probably good for 150mph. On a public road with no suspension??

    does the seat not have any travel? otherwise that'll be a big bruise in the morning.

    You'd wear a rib protector, but no, its a giant kart, with downforce too. Superkarts are scary, cant imagine doing that on roads with no run off

    You will never get seat travel or padding on any track racing vehicle because that would massively interfere with the feedback the driver gets. Your body can't tell seat movement from chassis movement.

    No run offs and kerbs about the same height as the wheels.

    Say your credit card has a limit of £100 and you want to buy something that costs £120 using the card, are you allowed to pay £20 in advance to the card and then spend the £120 or is that called money laundering?

  • James19/07/2010 at 20:43

    I find it strange that whenever i read 'Renault' i think of Fernando Alonso. I think i'm still living in 2006

    or 2009. ;)

  • lou19/07/2010 at 20:44

    oh yes. probably 2009..

    That's not money laundering unless you plan to give the credit card company a dodgy twenty

    It's not money laundering but I don't think the credit card would register that it has extra credit. You may be better off trying to increase your limit, if only temporarily.

  • lou19/07/2010 at 20:47

    I overpaid a card by £5 when I cleared it off. It still has that as a balance, I've not tried to spend on it so doing it that way may be fine. But paying £20 on a zero balance might look fishy.

    Those aren't the actual amounts. I'm guessing it looks even more fishy when we're talking about £100s of pounds... I'll ring them up in the morning :( I haven't got the strength right now :P

  • Alison19/07/2010 at 21:00

    Seems fair. And you can send him the dodgy £20 note.

    I only mentioned the money laundering thing because I think I've overpaid before by accident and they got very annoyed about it. I'm sure it was fraud related. It seems easier than anything else though :(

    I don't think it's fraud, I think it's because if you overpay they don't make money. They want you to borrow as much as possible from them so that they can maximise their chances of charging you interest.

    I don't think it's fraud, I think it's because if you overpay they don't make money. They want you to borrow as much as possible from them so that they can maximise their chances of charging you interest.

    It does depend, of course, by how much you overpay. If, for example, you paid £3000 in cash and then got a nice clean cheque from them, there would be a money laundering aspect to it.

    They shouldn't get annoyed, it's basically free money to them.

    I was just wondering whether it's general #skypefail because I use it a lot and it is pretty universally hopeless.... I get a lot of dropped calls, a lot of calls with poor quality for no reason, a lot of general crashing.

    it looks like he just saw it, and snapped it... no thinking involved... i want to see more thought out shots of the old silverstone track.. or something.. not a simple shot of some rust taken at eye level.. i looked at it for a good few minutes looking for something he obviously saw in it. i found nothing.

    I think it's that kinda information i've been looking for... i mean we have a bit of an idea how the drivers go about their weekend, but not a clue about photogs.

    Yes i do get the feeling he gets paid less by Yas..

    Then again i'm not sure i totally understand him, he has a photo of the red bull diffuser on his site... which he has pixalated so we can't see it. i asked him about it and he said that it's there just in case papers want it and then they can contact him to buy it. So er... why not approach the papers and journalists with it? rather than putting a silly pixalated pic on your website. Then again maybe i don't understand business..

    I am now scared. But shoot.

    It's harm;ess enough really.

    So, last year, I dabbled in the internet dating site MySingleFriend to mixed results

    This year, I am trying eHarmony...

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/07/2010 at 22:54

    Pat,

    have you been watching the spat between Tomas Scheckter and Alex Tagliani on twitter? It's quite funny... and now Paul Tracy has joined in too

    I have noticed that the vast majority of profiles I see are either in the finance sector or teaching.

    Thought you could ask around and see why that is?

    That site in particular, I mean

    Just a thought :)

  • RG19/07/2010 at 22:55

    Also it may be two or three mins late as I might have mistimed it.

    Late dailys are all the rage these days.

    I am not utterly utterly confused. I take it that "for your new colleagues" you don't mean the 7 year olds

  • me19/07/2010 at 22:56

    i am sat here thinking the same...

    No, they are your students :)

    I did but was too bleary eyed and slightly drunk to make a coherent reply at the time :)

    Makes sense to me. I guess we're in the mindset that we're the ones going... Tbh I assume every conversation here is inclusive and people can pitch in, but you're very right in that we phrased it wrongly and we'll do better.

    kind of like when a few of us went to a party, but we invited the whole of the internet along too.

    most of them are around 50+ and the vast majority are married, so im quite sure they're the type of people who don't go on that site..

    Hmm, ok

    Maybe they will have an insight into why their younger colleagues go there [maybe not]

  • me19/07/2010 at 23:00

    epic.evening.

    spa could and should be that epic. roaming will make it difficult to do that from the track. but before and after can be equally epic.

  • Alison19/07/2010 at 23:01

    I'm confused. Do you mean that specific site? Or online in general?

  • Bassano19/07/2010 at 23:01

    spa could and should be that epic. roaming will make it difficult to do that from the track. but before and after can be equally epic.

    I was wondering about contacting the site via text, is this still problematic?

    The lack of two-way comms is still frustrating

    we need to find a central location with green screen facilities and impose f1 on the background and broadcast 'live from spa'

    will bump it up the list.

  • Alison19/07/2010 at 23:02

    That site

    On that topic, I have no idea... Maybe there's loads on other sites too. I know a lot of teachers who've met people online. But I also know a lot of teachers so....

    You want to do a sidepodcast version of Capricorn One?

    I only have one place to compare it to but eH seems to be full of those two sectors

  • Leigh O'Gorman19/07/2010 at 23:04

    Trackside has just started - should be a full show

    maybe it's just best type of site for that

    Pat,

    have you been watching the spat between Tomas Scheckter and Alex Tagliani on twitter? It's quite funny... and now Paul Tracy has joined in too

    I saw something last night after the race, can't say I've looked today

  • Bassano19/07/2010 at 23:05

    But why, is my thought

    I was thinking about it this afternoon and I identified something else along similar lines, it is the last but one in the Daily, which may or may not have just posted.

    Yeah they were morons!

  • Bassano19/07/2010 at 23:10

    Yeah they were morons!

    I'm going to try it again in August. They flat-out said they can't stop my roaming data despite promising to do so when the pre-arranged limit was reached

  • Bassano19/07/2010 at 23:11

    I saw it a couple of times years ago but I can't remember if I liked it or not

    First time I saw it [in the 80's I think] it was great

    Don't know how well it has aged
