Here comes summer. Yes, for those living in the part of the world that lies above the equator, summer is officially here and can be officially enjoyed. I see those living in Barcelona get 23 degress with a bit of cloud, those lucky to be in San Francisco are in for a tasty 24 degrees with clear blue skies and those in Newcastle get a lovely... 15 degress and lots of cloud. Very... nice.

  • The fact is, those to the south of this world are in for some colder weather (than usual), but will it keep affecting the World Cup? I say no. I hope it doesn't because we've seen one very unique World Cup so far. England, France, Italy, Spain and Germany could all go out if they aren't careful. They are big names, huge names. But the fact is simple, is Europe really the powerhouse behind football these days? We shall see, but today we get to look forward to games from the mighty North Korea who play Portugal, my newly favourite team Chile against Switzerland and Spain against Honduras. It is the end of the second round of fixtures before things start to get a little bit manic for the next few days.
  • In F1 news... well, there isn't any. The circus goes to Valencia this week and lets face it, we'll deal with that when we get there. But, ex-Super Aguri star Takuma Sato was in IndyCar and all set for a podium until the inevitable happened. And ex-world champion Jaques Villeneuve apparantly looked good in his return to NASCAR. If anyone is interested, which you probably aren't, but super Tai Woffinden made it to the semi-finals of Satuday's Speedway Grand Prix. Its like making it into Q3 in F1, only the best, which makes me happy.
  • Tennis, ladies and gentlemen, is back. And I've only just got over two weeks of referring to it as RG, and not meaning me. Thankfully, Wimbledon can not be shortened down to anything (SW19 doesn't count). Some people are playing today, which probably doesn't help you at all, but I think a certain World number 1 will be on the main stage.
  • You know what, I love these Mark Webber videos that Sidepodcast helpfully releases as podcasts before each race weekend, oh, if there was only one place where they could be kept in a organised, clean way. Oh look, Mr C has revamped the video section of the site which now allows for easier access and in short, a very nice little page. Do check it out.

And there we have it, another (summery) Monday arrives. Just time to mention that our very own Jon Waldock was seen on, oh yes, Question Time! (Middle row, right on the end). Just fantastic, last time I was on TV was with Shay Given after the late Sir Bobby Robson got sacked from Newcastle United (Don't worry, I was only in the background).

Have a nice Monday (because September is too far away)

    It could. The team and title sponsor can reasonably negotiate accordingly (I'd be tempted to allow half-days, defined by a period of time of four hours or less when the car is running, to assist such negotiations). However, you shouldn't need to have masses and masses of shots just to do an advert, especially if it's also being used to subvert the intention of the test ban.

    It was only half a car length but Kubica later conceded that he'd probably have ceded the place. But, when Michael started to force the issue by edging the Renault over towards the wall, Robert thought, 'Sod you, mate, I'm sticking with this and you're going on the grass...'

    a dj mixer would probably do that. but i don't have a lot of experience in that area.

    that but alot smaller, im talking portable.

    I'm helping with the media stuff at the 24 hours this year and the likely hood is that im going to need both a radio and the radio mic too. The radio mic will give me an output of the circuit radio into my headphones and i wondered if there was anything i could do to put the radio audio into my headphones too, like a headphone splitter but opposite

  • RubberGoat21/06/2010 at 13:42

    Am looking but I don't really know what that type of thing would be called

    For those who make podcasts - is it better to go mono or stereo?

    Mono.

  • Leigh O'Gorman21/06/2010 at 13:44

    For those who make podcasts - is it better to go mono or stereo?

    depends - if you're podcasting music, go stereo; however if it's just interviews and whatnot, then mono should be fine

    a couple of the radio receivers seem to come with the mixer option built in. are you sure yours doesn't?

    I can't remember, but we won't be using the same as we did last year anyway so I was just looking at the options as i only needed the radio mic output to my headphones. im sure we can find a way of working it, or i could give the radio to my camera man for him to use

    the problem we found is that news items bring all the retweets, facebook shares and links. i have no idea why that is the case, but regular news = traffic.

    podcasts = no traffic. opinion / thoughts / ideas = a little traffic. if you follow that line of thought, like we did with breakout threads - ooh, this is working, lets do more - you end up killing yourself.

    since downshifting "new people" coming to the site has significantly dropped off, but we're not (as) miserable.

    2nd gen

    Which I only got a few weeks ago at the apple store for my borked one

  • Jeremy21/06/2010 at 21:29

    2nd gen

    maybe a full restore then restore from backup needed?

  • Lukeh21/06/2010 at 21:29

    should be fine. christine's is a fist gen, that'll be fun tomorrow :)

    It's really, really bad for me to the point where it doesn't react for a minute or so. Scrolling page to page is slow and clumsy and it's impossible to use... I am very much concered right now :/

  • lou21/06/2010 at 21:29

    should be fine. christine's is a fist gen, that'll be fun tomorrow :)

    hehe so... you gave Christine your old ipod and got a new one? (have we had this convo before?)

  • me21/06/2010 at 21:29

    maybe a full restore then restore from backup needed?

    it does that anyway. doesn't it? i had to resync everything.

  • Turkey Machine21/06/2010 at 21:29

    any prangs? :P

    Nope. :P

    Last year apparently there were rows of 3 cars. We made sure there were only 2 rows this year.

    Not one complaint either. :)

    it wont from memory. not at all.

    is it wrong i'm most excited about having a different background?

  • me21/06/2010 at 21:32

    that'll save some time. although i can see myself loosing this one soon.

  • Pat W21/06/2010 at 21:32

    I spent 36 hours parking cars at the Beverley Festival, saw the Proclaimers Sunday evening, drank lots of alcohol, took some of it home and got wind-burnt Saturday.

    How was your weekend? :D

    Drove 3/4-hr each way to buy Dad a golf club (graphite-shaft driver, apparently it feels different to a steel one). Hoovered out the car while I was up there, returned for a bit of a drink. Sunday played golf and got very hot, pint in the bar afterwards, saw grandad and came home to watch racing.

  • James21/06/2010 at 21:32

    The iOS 4 upgrade can be installed on 2008's iPhone 3G and second-generation iPod Touch, and 2009's iPhone 3GS and third-generation iPod Touch. The new operating system is not available for the first-generation iPhone or iPod Touch, both of which debuted in 2007.

    i tried to tell people at work to buy the 32 or 64 GB versions but the price difference was too big even though spending more meant it would last longer. Roll on the Apple hate as people find out

  • me21/06/2010 at 21:35

    How do I get iBooks to work?

    I opened it & went to the Store. Downloaded a free book (Winnie the Pooh) and synced my iPod Touch. This created a folder on iTunes for Books. I then imported PDF files (GP+) to that folder. There's probably a quicker way of doing it though.

    that's what I'm thinking. I like apple's gadgets, not apple's computers (actually, computing philosophy). :P

    you have to open iphoto and import them.

  • Lukeh21/06/2010 at 22:24

    now that steve jobs has fixed folders, can he please find a better way of getting screenshots out of the device back into the computer, because the current solution is shocking.

    AGREED!

  • lou21/06/2010 at 22:24

    ah i've never tried. is it not easier to upload them to the internet and then get them onto your comp that way? i can't say i've tried either way.. but just an idea

    you shouldn't, it erases captions and copyright notices from photographs... ;-)

    I don't know, I don't use safari. But I heard that it deletes the captions, where normally the copyright goes

    Truly bad races from Schumacher are collector's items.

    it can sit alongside china then! {Comment #90}

    They're not set to be collector's items for much longer, I fear...

  • Alianora La Canta22/06/2010 at 11:19

    It's the big trend for 2010...

    gah! can't people just downshift? {Comment #143}

    Downshifting on purpose is complicated and not everyone manages to make a smooth shift the first time around. Sometimes you have to stop the car in the pits, get the telemetry out and check you're still going the right way about things.

    I hope Brits on Pole manages to come back in a form Andy and LJH are comfortable with.

  • Alianora La Canta22/06/2010 at 11:21

    last update was april 3rd. i hope not. {Comment #149}

    Technical problem (partly domain-name related) plus girlfriend, I think. As far as I know, he intends to return to F1 blogging eventually, but don't quote me on that.

    something new from james allen: http://www.jam…nonf1.com/fans-forum/

    confused why they dont just put it on their own f1 site? {Comment #156}

    Because James appears to be one of the driving forces behind thixs particular idea - I got emailed on it today (sadly I can't afford to attend).

  • Alianora La Canta22/06/2010 at 11:26

    not sure she wants to. i still have your number, how can you not have changed it in two years? {Commnet #158}

    I've had the same number since I got my first mobile phone back in 2004. Retaining your number is easy if you have the same SIM card and mobile phone supplier.
