Hey everyone! Another Sunday is upon us, I’m writing this earlier than usual so I hope my limited blogging skills allow me to schedule this post okay. In Britain we are set for yet another hot day, so with no Grand Prix I’m sure many people will be making the most of this weather. For those of you wanting some time inside here are a few things to think about and discuss;

  • Firstly today is a very special day. 38 years ago a great Formula 1 driver was born, any guesses who it could be? No it’s not Jenson (did you really think I would be that biased?).. it’s Rubens! A very Happy Birthday to him on his special day, I wonder what he will do to celebrate?
  • A few days ago Mr C pointed out Mclaren’s amazing countdown screen saver, it’s completely insane, but utterly brilliant. I really recommend downloading it, it’s perfect!
  • Leigh wrote a great blog post with all you need to know about Indianapolis 500 ‘pole day’which is perfect! I’m not a follower of IRL but It’s helped me to understand it a great deal more.
  • Lastly I want to remind everyone that Giggles radio will be broadcasting again today, however at a the slightly earlier time of 2pm. Make sure you don’t miss it!

Apologies for this slightly rushed daily post, I hope the variety of motorsports that can be seen today will make up for it. I hope you all have a lovely day!

    If Franck says there is no way someone can do it then there is no way. Nuff said.

    Franck Knows Best. Could be a new feature.

  • Christine23/05/2010 at 08:54

    I still don't understand this qualifying format.

  • Lukeh23/05/2010 at 08:55

    I still don't understand this qualifying format.

    It#s very odd

  • Christine23/05/2010 at 08:55

    I still don't understand this qualifying format.

    It seems more epic than the races themselves, what with all this quarter finals, semi finals, etc.

  • Lukeh23/05/2010 at 08:56

    Oooh, Tottenham qualified for something

    #sorryRG

  • Christine23/05/2010 at 08:57

  • Lukeh23/05/2010 at 08:57

    Hehehe, Bourdais still moans in Superleague

  • Christine23/05/2010 at 08:59

    Ooooh Robert Doornbos. I remember him from F1!

    He's scary. He refers to himself as Bobby D in conversation. Like... "Bobby D isn't happy."

  • Lukeh23/05/2010 at 08:59

    2 part episodes of everything always annoy me!!! It seems like such a cop-out. You have a format, stick with it!

    I don't mind them. Especially if the first part ends on a cliffhanger and leaves you wanting more, like what happened earlier in the series :)

  • Alison23/05/2010 at 11:06

    I don't mind them. Especially if the first part ends on a cliffhanger and leaves you wanting more, like what happened earlier in the series :)

    I guess so. I found this particularly annoying though. I'm not a big Doctor Who fan so committing to watching again next week is a big thing for me. Maybe if I'd known I'd have watched something else to distract me from packing :P

    I don't think it was good enough for a two parter if I'm honest but for all we know, next week could be brilliantly brilliant and transform the story completely. They don't seem to like specifying that episodes are two parters in this series until you realise at the end!

    Getting ready for Franck part II - http://superleague.triple-it.nl/

  • Pat W23/05/2010 at 11:35

    MotoGP is on in a minute., and so is a whole pile of other stuff.. for those not out in the sun :)

  • Pat W23/05/2010 at 11:36

    I don't get the thinking of having all these start at 1pm:

    MotoGP, Superleague, DTM, GT1, Formula 2

  • Lukeh23/05/2010 at 11:36

    I've just found out that the number one single when I was born was Mistletoe & Wine by Cliff Richard and his album was number 1 too. I was born into a world obsessed with Cliff Richard!

    Bad, bad times.

    But I'm sooooo tired.

    Close your eyes and count sheep or Vettels or Alphonsos

    Keep to counting sheep. They are quiet. Steven probably tried to count Ferrari 312T4's going by but the engine noise from the V-12's kept him awake at night.... :P

    he was number 1 when I was born too! You win though because Misletoe and Wine is the worst song ever

    I have investigated further, Cliff Richard was #1 in the UK when I was born but #1 in New Zealand was ROCK ME AMADEUS. Awesome.

  • Lukeh23/05/2010 at 12:27

    Not Franck Franck is angry with Bourdais.

    I've got 7 photos in it, they are all from media.indycar.com and are sitting on my Wordpress account but I don't know how you want them laid out.

    I'm slightly rushing as I have to go out in half an hour (shouldn't have watched that MotoGP :) )

    I know nothing either but I don't think it is your PC as doohickey/lclt should shorten the link. Try posting a different link to see what happens. Just copy and paste a link in or type one with nothing else in the comment to see what happens

    my guess is itunes will release after sky airs it. so if it's available at 7am, it's just about possible. best to wait until the evening i guess.

  • Pat W23/05/2010 at 18:54

    ahh right :)

    From what I've heard it could have the potential to either leave people very ****ed off, or absolutely amazed, with no middle ground.

    that's pretty much it. yeah.

    i hope if they fail, that no-one every commissions the people behind it to make another tv series again. that's how mad i'd be.

    "who makes this new show? the people behind lost? stuff em"

    I think you need to start a TV show and movie podcast. Film & TV Watch. You've already got a load of content on Christine's blog. :)

    I checked out Auto GP and it was won last year by someone called Will Bratt who has a less than stellar record.

    Most seasons in his career he hasn't even made a podium all year. And he won the championship when you have to question how he even got a licence for it

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Bratt

    The driver is still alive, thankfully. He is suffering with critical injuries though. I hope he makes a full recovery.

    Is it possible with the LCLT / FBFB page to make it remember where you placed boxes? Based upon that, is it possible to store them as a preset for certain thread types?

    yeah, but it needs to be tied to a login system, because it's too much data to stuff into a cookie.

    login system hasn't been written yet, but once we know who you are, we can store it all in a database.

    It's probably a good indicator that the job's in the same place, but I have known stranger things to happen. JCP source the interview for you?

    8 hours of replay?

  • me23/05/2010 at 22:18

    Morning all. Being at work is very easy when there is 8 hours of french open replay on tv.

    best job in the world :)

    Eurgh. I thought they couldn't ask you to travel more than an hour to a job. {Comment #389}

    The limit is an hour unless you've specified that it's possible for you to go further (and then they can only compel you to go to places you've previously said you can go to). I have done so because there's a large city which is partly in my travel range and partly not, and it seems silly to lose opportunities at the boundaries of said city just because of an arbitary travel limit (they might not be able to compel you to work beyond an hour, but they also don't help you look for jobs in places you haven't indicated you can travel to). They hate ferreting out jobs only to have the candidate reject them.

    I can say, though, that I've never, ever said I can work in London. If it's just a question of getting to the interview, I could probably manage with assistance, but it would be impossible to do it every day (and I don't even know if this job is every day yet - all I have is an organisation name that I know operates nationally, an address for the head office where the interview will be and the job title).

    The third party to which JCP referred me sourced the interview for me, and I'm not 100% sure if it was the third party itself or the contacts of the third party that have done the arranging. It's theoretically possible that the organisation wanting to employ me doesn't know I live two hours away yet.

  • Amy23/05/2010 at 22:36

    Indeed, because the slams are on here in the middle of the night they replay them all the following day in prime time

  • Steven Roy23/05/2010 at 22:37

    Is the French open this week?

  • Pat W23/05/2010 at 22:39

    Morning all. Being at work is very easy when there is 8 hours of french open replay on tv.

    Morning. I think one day we may have to ask what you do that means you watch TV all day :)

  • Amy23/05/2010 at 22:43

    Yes, started yesterday

  • Steven Roy23/05/2010 at 22:44

  • Amy23/05/2010 at 22:48

  • Alison23/05/2010 at 22:48

    I might listen to some Archers. That might help me sleep.
