Today is Olivier Panis' birthday, and that is a name I vaguely recognise from my early days of watching Formula 1. If I recall correctly, Panis left Toyota as test driver making way for Franck to test there, and I can't decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Instead, let's move on to what we're talking about instead:

  • There is FOTA news, of a sort, in that US F1 have applied to join. However, with this news is the more interesting snippet that Force India think they have been invited back in. No word on whether Williams have received the hand of friendship or whether or not they would touch it.
  • F1 new boy Jaime Alguersuari has been put under his biggest test to date by taking the F1.com Ask the Expert quiz. He does relatively well, is towards the top of the leaderboard and joint with Kazuki Nakajima. I particularly like the bit where he says: "Shame on me."
  • Barrichello has likened the championship battle to golf - saying that when you play golf, you have to play against the course and not against your opponent, otherwise it gets into your head. I would have thought playing against your opponent would help too though, wouldn't it?

That'll do it for now. Don't forget that you don't need to stick to the topics listed above - the daily is there for you to talk about anything on your mind, F1 or otherwise. I'll see you in the comments.

    I'd like to, but not. Actually I'm travelling on Monza's weekend! :-(

    I'm going to Hamburg for a Summer School and then to Paris for a three week research stay...

    If F1 doesn't implodes before I get my PhD and (with high probability) do a post-doc in Europe, then I promise I'll go to a GP. But not before 2011... :-(

    Greetings Everyone!

    Barrichello has likened the championship battle to golf – saying that when you play golf, you have to play against the course and not against your opponent, otherwise it gets into your head. I would have thought playing against your opponent would help too though, wouldn’t it?

    Of course, given Barrichello's point of view from his years at Ferrari, he would be bound to say playing against the course vs. playing against your teammate. I mean what is the point of playing against your teammate when you can dominate a race by have a lap over your teammate to hear Brawn call over the radio. Okay, Rubens, slow down so that Button (Or Schuie if you can remember 2002) can pass you for the win...)

  • guille230601/09/2009 at 23:24

    certainly sounds interesting

    it is, is one of the good things of studying physics. sometimes you travel to nice places (and sometimes you compensate it by not having a life for a week...) :-)

    BTW, I've booked train tickets to London for the 10-11th of October. If anyone is around those days there could be an intercontinental meet-up (I'll be in tourist mode, though)

    Female astronauts are more trouble than they are worth. First one lobs her toolkit now one just smashed here helmet off a space station. You would think she would notice that there was a space station in the vicinity. Now here carbon dioxide levels have shot up. They are suggesting it may be a helmet sensor problem. Maybe if she hadn't smashed it off a space station the sensor would be fine.

    I love the other photo set. Not the Valencia one the Spain ones.

    There are some grat pics in there. There is one of the sunset pics that really works and the water/architcture section is fab as well. I didn't know you had been seeing animals so I was a bit shocked when a giraffe just appeared.

    Montreal is an awesome party town…anyone consider that?

    Its a bit further for most of us, and Amy is flying from Aus (Or NZ according to giggles )

    Montreal might actually be closer to Australia than London. The difference might be where in Austrailia you are heading from. Toronto to Auckland, NZ was a 22 hour flight but that included some massive stopovers in Whereever George Bush Airport is in Texas, and LAX. AX to Auckland was direct. POint is, that is not actual air time.

    For rugby and cricket they sell beer and you can drink it in your seat.

    For soccer they sell beer but you can only drink it behind the seating, you cant drink it in sight of the pitch!

    We should be all asleep by then, but check though yesterdays daily!

  • Nick02/09/2009 at 02:34

    He didn't do well last year to use a quote that made th dictionary because the car understeered like a pig on a polished floor. I doubt I had any other theories so it will be interesting to see what Joe says.

    Pigs understeer?

  • Alison02/09/2009 at 02:34

    We managed to find flights that cost £650 return :)

    you had a good theory about rain. i think hughes borrowed that one.

    They do on polished floors.

    He borrowed that and about 3 of his columns in the following 6 weeks were things I said on here.

  • Amy02/09/2009 at 02:36

    normally i read the previous days daily before i come into the current one but for once i didnt! Shall head there now. Have dropioed a picture of what ill be doing for the next hour :D

  • Steven Roy02/09/2009 at 02:38

    I just thought of something. You do know that one way to get cheap flights is to act as a courier. I hav a friend who got a ridiculously cheap flight home from Australia and all she had to carry was a large letter. She was shown the contents before it was sealed etc so it is all above board. The only problem is you can't book those months ahead and I have no idea how you organise them in the first place but they do happen all the time.

  • Alison02/09/2009 at 02:39

    Sounds a little too much like drug trafficking to me :(

    It is legitinate businesses that need documents or small packages to be somewhere else faster than Fedex can manage or they don't want their package to be just thrown in with a pile of others. These kind of things happen more than you may think. My mate used to run a sales office and quite a few times he phned me asking if I was busy as he needed somebody to take a package to America. I never went but he used to ask his receptionist etc if they had a passport and could go.

    In those cases they flew there an were met at the other end, taken out to dinner and got on a flight to come back. He was sending sales data and presentations that had to be in the USA that day and there is no other way to do that.

    'on a charge' was used and used well :P

    The energy just doesnt last...

  • Alison02/09/2009 at 03:23

    I watched the start of the race again earlier and noticed that Raikkonen went off the track near the start (not AT the start when he jumped all those positions :P) and rejoined basically into Kubica's car and they clashed! I'm pretty sure it's what sparked off the chain-reaction that made everyone else crash. Because there was then this big incident, it didn't get mentioned again as FOM didn't show the replays from before the incident.

  • Amy02/09/2009 at 03:24

    my commentators just said that andy roddick won in straight sets. Just in time for my lunch break to end. I shall investigate sta travel when i get home :D

    Thats interesting, both KR and JB went really wide at la source and didnt loose positions to people. I know its the first lap but surely they gained from it?

    not sure, but there is flying bodywork around the bmw at that point.

    Kimi came onto the track immediately in front of Kubica and I'm SURE something fell off the front of the BMW.

    I've got the iplayer up. At 9:50 Leggard does tell you it's Kubica, right before Kimi thwacks him

    He also does mention that he's been hit, then forgets about it because of all the other carnage.

    Kimi went off at the top of the hill and came back on and Kubica's front wing got damaged in the clash. I remember thinking at the time that he triggered everything that followed.

    Kimi gained at least two positions

    "For a driver, Superleague is the best alternative to F1. Today, it's the only other championship in Europe to offer a driver the possibility of racing single seaters at a high, professional level," said Bourdais.

    A1GP is MUCH better compared to Superleague.

    It's sad to see a Champ Car champion (even in the last watered-down Champ Car iteration) have to resort to this.

  • Journeyer02/09/2009 at 09:58

    Not Superleague!! Why Bordy Why!!??

    Look who he has for company. FTA:

    Bourdais will be the fourth ex-F1 driver racing in Superleague at Estoril, along with Giorgio Pantano, Antonio Pizzonia and Enrique Bernoldi.

    Riiight, then.

    "For a driver, Superleague is the best alternative to F1. Today, it's the only other championship in Europe to offer a driver the possibility of racing single seaters at a high, professional level," said Bourdais.

    Awesome!

    The only downside to SF seems to be that it's very hard to find TV coverage though...

    My computer hates me. I couldn't find anywhere to watch the tennis for ages. I got locked out of 5 live when i was trying to listen to it earlier. When I got up this morning, I smashed a vase, cut myself, then got blood on my favourite dress. Then I was late for work because a farmer insisted on walking his sheep down the road for 2 miles before moving them out the way.

    It's still the morning. I fear for my life this afternoon!

  • Jon Waldock02/09/2009 at 10:39

    It feels like a Tuesday for me.

    I like this about Bank Holiday weeks...

    I consider it them to go, from a work perspective like this:

    Tuesday - First day of the week must be a Monday

    Wednesday - It was Monday yesterday wasn't it? Must be Tuesday

    Thursday - Tricky day but it must be Wednesday mustn't it was Tuesday yesterday

    Friday - Well Friday is still Friday it's the end of the week.

    So no Thursday!

    Dinner? Is he here in Asia? It's not even lunchtime over there...

  • fourstar02/09/2009 at 10:46

    So Wagamama for lunch. I like just about everything, bar the fishy things (although the grilled prawns rae OK).

    What does the world think I should eat (I'm not paying either)

    negima yakitori sounds like a driver.

    and i approve of everything being in lower case. i have only been awke for three minutes so seeing the words dumplings confuses me.

    Indeed. I say go for the salmon ramen or the negima yakitori.

  • fourstar02/09/2009 at 10:50

    That is quite a lot of choice! This could be tough.

    OK, so one side dish plus a main. And no salad.

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 10:50

    ugh.

    i had no idea that such lower case establishments existed. we may have to investigate one day.

  • Journeyer02/09/2009 at 10:52

    And no fish

    Ugh. So much for salmon ramen, then. Chicken katsu curry, I say.

  • fourstar02/09/2009 at 10:52

    Yakitori might be the way. Salmon not so much though...

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 10:52

    i had no idea that such lower case establishments existed. we may have to investigate one day.

    It's good... I have live commented from one before... But I didn't reveal I was there - if that's any help?

  • me02/09/2009 at 10:52

    Ah, looks like my choices fit your requirements. ;) Go for the salmon ramen AND the negima yakitori.

    wagamama ramen seems a bit self involved, so i'd discount that. it's kinda like shouting "roxette" in the middle of your song, if your in a band called roxette.

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 10:53

    Apparently you can also order takeout online, although you have to collect.

  • fourstar02/09/2009 at 10:54

    It's certainly leading the pack at the moment. The Cha Han is pretty good too though.

  • Alison02/09/2009 at 11:29

    It's not finished scanning yet. Trojan of some kind.

    It usually depends on what sites you access and what links you click. Some may have them hidden deep within their pages. Some aren't as obviously dangerous as others, so it's hard to spot at times.

    Their stories don't say GMM so perhaps I am wrong. I approach them with suspicion anyhow.

  • me02/09/2009 at 13:16

    It always has been hasn't it?

    they used to pay the likes of mark blundell.

    "The SPEED TV commentator is understood to have been impressed by Montagny's potential and set-up and development skills during his stints in the top flight as a test driver for both Renault (from 2003 to 2005) and Toyota (2007), and as a race driver for Super Aguri for 2006."

    another one borrowing steven's thoughts and using them as his own. bad windsor.

  • Jon Waldock02/09/2009 at 13:17

    Their stories don't say GMM so perhaps I am wrong. I approach them with suspicion anyhow.

    I have to say, i don't usually use them for F1 storys, but for the national series its usually good for, and they used to do a good (ish) podcast with lots of interviews on it....however reading it properly, it does appear to be quite a bit non-story-headline...

    "Other drivers to have been listed in connection with USF1 include former Williams, Benetton and McLaren star Alex Wurz, 1997 F1 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve, IndyCar poster girl Danica Patrick and Americans Marco Andretti, Graham Rahal, Jonathan Summerton, Ryan Hunter-Reay and Kyle Busch."

    Very true.

    Whats Windows 7 like?

    I love it. I had Vista before so I notice the improvements. It has rss wallpaper feed things (I haven't set one up yet) and the new task bar make things much better. It isn't working my CPU or HDD as much so I'm keeping it. Plus it came free because I got it from Uni so I'm not going to change. There are a lot of changes too many to go into in one post :D

  • Jon Waldock02/09/2009 at 14:26

    I love it. I had Vista before so I notice the improvements. It has rss wallpaper feed things (I haven't set one up yet) and the new task bar make things much better. It isn't working my CPU or HDD as much so I'm keeping it. Plus it came free because I got it from Uni so I'm not going to change. There are a lot of changes too many to go into in one post :D

    How come you got it from your uni?

  • James02/09/2009 at 14:27

    Whats Windows 7 like?

    Vista.

    Perhaps not as completely broken, but too much like vista for me to be jumping ship until forced.

    I can see that and normally I wouldn't jump until a few months in but it was free and I was going to reinstall the OS anyway.

  • Kris02/09/2009 at 14:28

    How come you got it from your uni?

    If the university have an msdn subscription (I think its actually called msdnaa, but the one normal people/businesses can buy is called MSDN) you get most of microsoft's software for free for you to make programs with/for.... I think there's a no-commercial clause in the license though

    You get most things pre-release too

  • Kona02/09/2009 at 14:28

    Vista.

    Perhaps not as completely broken, but too much like vista for me to be jumping ship until forced.

    Are you still on XP then?

  • James02/09/2009 at 14:28

    Yep. I've got all my Microsoft applications from there excluding Office.

  • Kris02/09/2009 at 14:28

    Academic Alliance = MSDN for universites, and yes in my case

  • Kris02/09/2009 at 14:29

    Im at Lancaster

    Perhaps not as completely broken, but too much like vista for me to be jumping ship until forced.

    I think Im one of the few people on the planet who had a better time with Vista than with XP, though my xp machines were also plagued with hardware issues.

    Yes... its just so much quicker.

    Have just seen this update on Kathi's wiki profile. I heart Kathi:

    degree of F1 geekiness: Hm not very high probably. I've been watching and reading about it for more than 10 years but I wouldn't say I actually know anything. I never take part in the big discussion that occasionally break out on spc mostly because I just can't be bothered :) Who cares if refueling is banned or not. They are going to change everything in a few years anyway no reason to waste time you could spend discussing if red pandas are pandas or evil impostors.

  • Selidor02/09/2009 at 14:29

    What uni's are you both at?

    Liverpool John Moores.

  • James02/09/2009 at 14:31

    There are a lot of little changes in Windows 7 which won't get mentioned a lot but so far I prefer it to Vista so I'm sticking with it :D

    Also I cant believe Iv only just heard of this MSDN thing! Turns out my high school were the only secondary school in liverpool to have it - the same high school who were running 500Mhz Celeron machines with 64mb of RAM and CRT displays until 2008!

    he is right about people wanting to share their videos. I may have sent the taxi one, and the 'hey dude pick up your phone' to everyone I know.

    Their other videos though, the ones on the widget, BOR-ING.

    The McLaren team’s sponsor Johnnie Walker can be thanked for bringing a little amusement into the sport, which has been deadly serious in the last 48 hours because of the allegations flying around about race fixing.

    it's like all the kimi talk, which is/was a great conversation, now has it's own place. 10mins ago it was mixed up amongst talk of sleep, food and other no f1 stuff.

    Good to see him - actually looks quite dapper!

  • Jon Waldock02/09/2009 at 18:06

    Very good actually. Just sorted out with O2 to get the £100 deposit I had to put down when I got my iPhone back into my bank account, so that's awesome. Plus, I've got two nights out at the weekend to look forward to :D

    Cool, my weekend seems very far away at the moment. MUSEEE

    Evening all. Need to remember to take an umbrella to work. I've been soaked walking home twice in a row this week!

    I always have my lightweight waterproof coat and umbrella in my bag when I go to work, just in case.

    I'll tell you what is a problem with the breakout threads... comment trawling...

    I want to reply to things in all the different threads but I can't because the thread selector is way up at the top and the comment I want to reply to is way down near the bottom...

    Any thoughts?

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)02/09/2009 at 18:13

    Cool little thing on the F1 website, Vettel and Bernie

    Love this quote:

    Q: Does [Vettel] really not need a manager?

    BE: No, what for? There is no reason to share your money with somebody else. And one day if he gets married that will happen automatically. Fact is, we have a great relationship and when Sebastian has any questions I am always there to help.

  • me02/09/2009 at 18:14

    he's not.

    i just chose not to link to those pics.

    evening everyone.

    I dunno if it's still on but I shall'nt be around sunday night to join in the syncronized viewing of Talledega Nights sadly :( got that postponed charity football match to do.

    I know - but I do not really want to see the other side. I think it is incredibly brave to be out promoting stuff given the accident and visible scarring. Personally I also think he will grow from it - he is a gritty little guy!

  • me02/09/2009 at 18:17

    i'd rather not see it. just didn't want you thinking he was hiding anything.

    LCLT. I'm comment trawling by thread, with the Daily first for post-work wind down reasons. I might have to open a new one for each thread though... am experimenting..

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 18:18

    mmm. i can see that.

    Just a thought could we have a switch icon next to the link to the post on the right of each comment? So pressing reply is disabled but pressing switch on the right and then reply could be enough of a deterant to make it a conscious decision?

    I think he could still do it. I also love the interchange between Rob and Felipe - it is very natural - a real relationship.

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 18:22

    I'm not sure about that... I like to see the conversation as it evolved across all the threads. I am a multitasker at heart :)

    What I do is

    1) open the doohicky.

    2) turn off follow comments

    3) find read more and press it

    4) keep pressing it until my name appears in the commenter box

    5) hit the pending button

    6) read the comments

    7) hit the pending button again

    8) turn back on follow comments

    :)

  • me02/09/2009 at 18:23

    What I do is

    what happens if you've missed more than 880 comments?

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 18:23

    It's a real pain to press read more loads when it's moving, but with follow comments turned off you're golden.

  • Steven Roy02/09/2009 at 18:23

    I want to reply to things in all the different threads but I can't because the thread selector is way up at the top and the comment I want to reply to is way down near the bottom...

    I had the same thought yesterday but didn't post it. I would like to see the thread selector stay on the top of the screen wither by having it float or by locking the top inch and scrolling the rest ofthe screen

  • Kona02/09/2009 at 18:24

    Does sidepodcast have 2 separate podcast feeds? I'm looking here. What is the difference between the top 2? They have differing descriptions. One is MP3... the other? (just curious)

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 18:24

    what happens if you've missed more than 880 comments?

    How would that happen? ;)

    Well it does happen sometimes, but actually I don't allow myself to read back that many. It is bad for me.

  • Nick02/09/2009 at 18:26

    What I do is

    Stage 1-4 the same.

    5) open up 2nd doohicky tab to follow current conversation.

    6) Alternate between both threads.

    Your way sounds good, but i think i am too much of a multitasker :P

    I do much the same as Alex. Them ost I have ever loaded is 760 comments

    Does sidepodcast have 2 separate podcast feeds? I'm looking here. What is the difference between the top 2? They have differing descriptions. One is MP3... the other? (just curious)

    we used to have two. one feed was an enhanced AAC file for use in ipods / itunes. AAC files contained chapters, links and photographs along with audio.

    the other was a plain vanilla MP3 file for anyone not signed up to the apple eco-system.

    we've stopped doing AAC files because we can't afford the disk space to keep duplicate content in that quantity at the moment. so for the time being, the feeds are the same (MP3 only).

    I am thinking of going to Snow Leopard tomorrow... I mean I don't use my Mac for production anything so I think it's worth a shot. I also bought the new version of all the new iLife to go with it so there's a lot of new functionality I'll get from that and not having to do it twice.

    Thoughts?

    Thoughts?

    i like the idea of someone doing it before me.

  • Pat W02/09/2009 at 18:31

    What I do is

    Mine is:

    1) Open Doohickey and turn off audio alert.

    2) Say hi on Doohickey in the Daily.

    3) Open LCLT and turn off audio alert and follow comments.

    4) Read a string of comments in the LCLT, reply sometimes.

    5) Take an occasional break to read anything new in Doohickey, in case people are replying or something more interesting is happening.

    6) When caught up, close LCLT and sit in Doohickey until I remember to go to bed.

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 18:32

    i like the idea of someone doing it before me.

    Okay...

    Apparently there's some compatibility issues and some people say there are a few bugs...

    Is it not better to wait a bit and then buy it? Then all the patches will have been released...

    haha!

    we have a bunch of audio stuff that's not compatible yet. so we'll be waiting a good while i reckon. probably months.

  • Steven Roy02/09/2009 at 18:33

    Thoughts?

    I listened to three Leo shows yesterday and everyone of them panned it. The complaints ranged from you just can't tell if from Leopard to there are all sorts of compatability problems. THe advice seemed to be don't bother with it.

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 18:34

    Is it not better to wait a bit and then buy it? Then all the patches will have been released...

    Yeah I'm sure it is but I am a big cheater because of three reasons:

    1) I don't have any thing like production stuff on my mac

    2) All of my data is stored in the cloud - or backed up there

    3) The only bit of non-apple software installed on this mac is (I think) Firefox

    So I'm pretty safe.

    Something that annoyed me was the fact that EA have done another one of their track guide videos for NFS: Shift. They seem to be putting more of an effort into all the preview stiff when they could be using that effort towards something like, ohh I dunno, A DEMO PERHAPS?!?! Come on, EA, sort it out!

  • me02/09/2009 at 18:36

    So I'm pretty safe.

    i'd say go for it. the improvements will take months to come down the line, because all the developers need to take advantages of the improvements. also, memory is still too pricey to drop 32GB of ram into a laptop. but when it comes down, mac's will be beyond awesome.

    The only downside to SF seems to be that it's very hard to find TV coverage though...

    That's because it keeps shooting itself in the foot. If it was looked after properly, raced in the right places, highlights on 'normal' TV, and made personalities of the people behind the national flags, it would work.

    #sidepodsapce

    One from the you couldn't make it up department. A couple of days ago when the shuttle docked with the ISS some manouvring thrusters on the ISS failed. At the press conference NASA said it was not a real problem there are other thrusters that can be used. The main use of the failed thrusters is in moving the ISS out of the way of debris and none was in the vicinity.

    Today a lump of space junk just turned up.

    Astronauts Informed of Possible Conjunction Maneuver

    Wed, 02 Sep 2009 08:32:20 PM GMT

    NASA space shuttle Capcom Tony Antonelli informed Discovery commander Rick Sturckow about a possible conjunction with debris from a portion of an Ariane 5 rocket body. The conversation was preempted on NASA Television by the HTV preflight briefing and was replayed after the briefing at 2:41 p.m. EDT.

    Tony Antonelli: We’ve been analyzing whether we need to do Debris Avoidance Maneuver (DAM). We’re considering all the options and they’re all still on the table. The closest point of approach is at GMT 247:15:06 minutes (11:06 a.m. EDT Friday). The options that are still being considered are: we don’t need to do anything; there would be an attitude maneuver with a reboost option that we would accomplish post-EVA; the other is a deboost that will take a good chunk of the time tomorrow and would delay EVA 2 by a day. We will know more later today. We plan to do the campout tonight either way to keep our options open.

    They are planning to go ahead with the preparations for tomorrow's spacewalk although the spacewalk may be postponed if the station has to be moved out of the way of the debris.

    catching up on comments

    looked like jenson gave two positions back upon rejoining, he may have gained more than two though, i couldn't tell?

    The team told Jenson to give back the places immediately, so he did.

    Lou's birthday + celebrating a Jenson/Brawn championship? Hmmm. Nice idea... :D

    Don't jinx him.. although i wouldn't object to him winning the championship around the time of my birthday :D lol

    First SPC post was in December.

    can we have a party anyway? it will be my 18th and everything :P

    ooh, i just remembered lou's photos. i couldn't get distracted last night, must look now.

    thanks for the favs btw :)

    pic of massa doing some fiat promo work today.

    open a notepad file and just copy all tahts currently in there into it. then whatever you change can be correted

    have done... easier to read it there than the little box Blogger gives you...

  • Steven Roy02/09/2009 at 20:51

    I'm scared I'll break it :-)

    Open a new blog with the same template and break it

  • startledbunny02/09/2009 at 20:52

    I'm scared I'll break it :-)

    I think the part marked content could adjust it, but that might just make the whole thing wider as opposed to the posts

    I tried on a test blog, you can easily change the width, but the border images are a completely different matter :-(

  • startledbunny02/09/2009 at 20:56

    I think the part marked content could adjust it, but that might just make the whole thing wider as opposed to the posts

    its the bit marked #main in the content section that widens the posts, but make sure you adjust the #content width as well. just tried it on one of mine.

  • Pat W02/09/2009 at 20:56

  • guille230602/09/2009 at 21:00

    That's what I was afraid of... thanks.

    it doesn't seem too hard to fix it, though. just download the gifs pointed in the html (there are 3 or 4) , add some space in the middle and upload them to picasaweb (at least that's what I'm going to do tonight... ;-) )

    Night to sleepers,

    I am sorted earlier than i thought...

    Shooting stars is on!

    Anyone else want to live comment an episode of the west wing?

    I'm playing with the numbers on the page width and I'm happy with that now, I'm just having trouble moving the border. I'm not sure what hosting the gifs elsewhere would do?

    yup

    I've tested it and it works. I haven't thought about that before, but I also have my own playground ;-)

    Notice that I just changed the borders, there are round corners everywhere...

    naaah, I just open my mouth with probable solutions without trying them first. in some cases, it works; in others, well... whistles away.... :-)

    you can say that we Argentinians are good at that. Down here it's called 'we tie it with wire' :P

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 21:30

    Im kinda glad i couldn't get an iphone because i think apple would have made an absolute fortune out of me!

    The scary thing is how awesome the interface works with the iPhone. I have my tv connected to my stereo which is great obviously.

    And because my iPhone connects to my apple tv without turning the tv on I can make my stereo play music by choosing a song on the iPhone.

    Sitting in the garden choosing the track you want to play from the stereo.

    It is the most awesome thing ever - and why I bought an Apple TV before the movies came out in the UK

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 21:31

    Tomorrow?

    I'm out at the theater tomorrow sadly.

    That is really cool.

    Sony are brining out an android phone later this year so i am hoping for some ps3 conectivity before then.

    BTW PS3 3.0 was released (today?) and i have downloaded it. The iplayer launches directly from the XMB but it runs in the browser which is still awesome as it has the soecial interface which came out earlier this summer, but it isnt anything new really other than direct acess.

  • Alex Andronov02/09/2009 at 21:35

    'Apple: taking laziness to the next level' ;-)

    Tell me about it!

    But while they don't always get it right (I'm looking at you iTunes crashing, very slow syncing etc) the thing that they are sooooo awesome at is... "imagine how in an ideal world it would work and that's how it works except here's an extra cool thing you didn't even know you needed"

    Terrifyingly amazing sometimes!

    It also coems with a bigger font on the menu!

    Although I do like the whats new menu, and the fact it actually now tells you if you have new messages rather than 1 little message then nothing!

    I just get my hopes up when they get to a new number that it will be massively huge. still, 4.0 might be revloutionary!

    It should be. But often people want to make the number 2 product... the me too product... And don't stop to think, "I don't want people to be satisfied with my product, I want people to love my product". Interesting fact, you can't have people love your product unless you're willing to have people hate your product.

    very true. Apple are good at making things that you can love, and their success is based on that. if you love something, it doesn't matter that it will cost you a bit more. you don't just need A phone, you want THAT phone.

    I'm going to stay with some friends that live out there, do a bit of exploring. Generally stretch my wings a bit. I'm pretty ashamed that I've never been out of Europe.

    I seem to have (almost) successfully widened the body from 485px to 550px, which should make things a lot easier to read. I say almost.. The header/footer corners didn't work properly, I saved them, extended them and uploaded and they came out red.

    Exactly. Most people once they actually use the product find they live it because it does what they need without getting in the way. It gives people the sense of control that makes them feel in charge of the product (rather than say the way Windows reboots forcing an update without your permission).

    But some people find, quite understandbly, that they don't feel in control because they feel that somebody else is telling them what they should think. Apple people are drinking the coolade etc. And of course it will never work for them. People want to be in control so if they think this they can't buy apple. Ironically they are in some ways more dillusional than the Apple fanboys. They swear against something.

    Personally I use an Apple iPhone, 3 PCs running Windows and 1 Macintosh Laptop. I spend most of my time using Microsoft software.

    Thing is, if you look at the originals via Firefox they look white/clear between the corners. Save it and open in MS Paint (yeh I know) and they show up red. Fine I thought... just adjust and it'll be fine... so now I have red lines there :-)

    when i got my playstation and ps2 i bought loads of sony products whenever they were an option.

    Since i have started using chrome, i have switched to gmail, gone to android and want a chrome netbook!

    Yeah, things have been really tough for me, particularly over the past year and I really just want to go do something I've never been able to do before. I've never been out the country by myself, I've never seen anywhere outside Europe. I know I'm going to have to get my finances together and go back to uni at some point so I'd really like to go broaden my horizons first!!

    If it's price then I can understand although I think it may well be a false economy over the life of the machines.

    I wouldn't have a problem with using a Mac.. but I would get the urge after 12-18 months to want to upgrade a component or two. Last time I used Macs you couldn't do that, I don't know if you can now. I like the moddable nature of PCs. Windows is what lets it down.

    If it's price then I can understand although I think it may well be a false economy over the life of the machines.

    It is false economy and there are independent figures to back that up. The problem is that everyone is scared of the unknown and so they stick with what they know. This is usually Microsoft.

    Nick, I'm not sure if you caught my comment earlier... But I saw you were looking at podcast software for Android. I suggested you might want to look at Acast, and I've since come across Mediafly which has just been released for Android, and looks like an even better free option, in what I've seen of it so far.

  • Pat W02/09/2009 at 22:13

    Rubbish. If any group of people knows what it is like to be told what to think, it is people using MS products. That isn't why some swear away from Apple (not me btw, that's not my argument though it may seem like it often).

    why would you say you don't?

    If it's price then I can understand although I think it may well be a false economy over the life of the machines.

    Y'know what, I've been trying to pin that down for a few weeks now, and its hard because Macs have come a hell of a long way since I last used them, some 14-15 years ago when Mum had one. I'm closer to considering them now than I ever was.

    I've always liked the upgradeable nature of PCs. Get it how you want it, then 18 months later you just need to change a component here or there rather than the whole machine.

  • Steven Roy02/09/2009 at 22:13

    Yeah, things have been really tough for me, particularly over the past year and I really just want to go do something I've never been able to do before. I've never been out the country by myself, I've never seen anywhere outside Europe. I know I'm going to have to get my finances together and go back to uni at some point so I'd really like to go broaden my horizons first!!

    Macs can run any software now that they are Intel based so you can fiddle to your hearts content. The Mac OS has a terminal program built in, so if you want to do command line stuff, knock yourself out.

    Poor poor Nick! :D

    In Australia, you could buy it from three different carriers, and if you were on a plan, they would happily unlock it for you, since they had you locked into 12 or 24 months of payments anyway. If you went prepaid, you could unlock for a fee.

    You can now get it from 2 extra carriers or buy it outright unlocked. We win for once!

    I agree. It's just that the difference in price doesn't justify it right now for me. I've just bought a few months ago a PC (built at a local store) which was almost the fastest machine you could get here, for 1000 USD. An equivalent Mac would have costed me... wait, there is not mac with that config here. Either I should have settled for a less powerful 2000USD iMac, or lose my mind and go for a 4000USD MacPro

  • Andy Taylor02/09/2009 at 22:50

    For Windows, perhaps (dump the Vista name - Microsoft's Edsel), but Snow Leopard is a lot more than a service pack. Some of the changes deep in the system that most users will never even notice will become very significant as more software adds support for them. Grand Central Dispatch is one of the most elegant ways of dealing with the multi-thread programming conundrum I have seen.

    I don't think she gets to judge. She went to live in Africa for 2 years when she was in her 20s. It's just because I didn't show any real interest before the boy and I got together, she thinks he's making me (even though he's not coming....)

    You would think if she did that she would understand. I would have thought she would be more worried about him abandoning you wheli he went off to India than him forcing you to go to New Zealand

    All I need to do now is make proper plans for Christmas!! I have no idea what to do.... I don't really want to impose on people down there and mess up their plans, similarly I'm not spending it by myself!!

    Zoe and I will put you up. I vote SPC xmas at my house. Amy can fly up, Paul, Rocket etc. can road trip from Canberra. This is going to be fun!

  • Andy Taylor02/09/2009 at 22:54

    Where to start? Ok here's one thing that infuriates me - the "secure" mode that darkens the screen and places a message in the middle to tell you that you are about to do something that might damage the machine and is it OK to continue when creating a folder I know you can disable it, but it drives me mad.

    She doesn't like him because it's becoming a serious relationship, it's quite obvious he doesn't want to settle in one place and she's worried she won't get to coo over grandchildren I reckon.

    I have an odd relationship with my mother. She can't just be happy that I'm happy.

  • Paul02/09/2009 at 22:56

    For Windows, perhaps (dump the Vista name - Microsoft's Edsel), but Snow Leopard is a lot more than a service pack. Some of the changes deep in the system that most users will never even notice will become very significant as more software adds support for them. Grand Central Dispatch is one of the most elegant ways of dealing with the multi-thread programming conundrum I have seen.

    I can't argue that. Honestly, you can't really compare across operating systems, it's a no-win argument. The rest comes down to company marketing. Microsoft didn't charge for WinXP SP3, a very big upgrade, Apple did for OSX.6. But, whatever.

  • Andy Taylor02/09/2009 at 22:56

    Don't get me started.

    :D I forgot to mention DRM, licencing, the different "versions" - Home, Professional, Ultimate etc.

    OS X comes with simple licencing, no serial numbers and just one version.

  • Steven Roy02/09/2009 at 22:56

    I agree Vista i rubbish. Windows 7 was hardly a rushed upgrade. It's a significant one, but and upgrade, not a new OS in any way. Also, Snow Leopard is arguably just a service pack. Apple could have been trickling out the changes over time, but they choose to pack them up, call it an OS upgrade and change for it. Looks more like a marketing exercise to me

    I mentioned to Alex earlier that I listened to three of Leo's shows yesterday which are full of Mac fanboy's and every single person had a go at Snow Leopard. They either said they could see no differnce or they had compatibiliy issues. They also made the comment that it was a service pack and was simply a marketing exrcise to put something up against Windows 7.

  • Jeremy (GMT 10)02/09/2009 at 22:56

    haha! I'm glad you said that!

    if it works for you, leave it alone. but at least play with a Mac after making a rough list of what you do on a computer and taking note of how you do certain things.

    I've specifically avoided using it (and I like Windows generally) because it has such a poor reputation. Some basic functions are just terrible. Like copying multiple large files, which takes longer than it does in XP for no apparent reason.

    I am happy with what i have, and it works for me :)

    For when i have alot more money/sense/when my computer needs replacing, i'll think about getting a Mac, but until then, i'll stick with Vista and hope the judgement of my choice goes away

    I hate Vista. I never have problems with computers. The one I am using now is years old and runs XP and has never needed any kind of repair. My Vista laptop lasted a year before I had to re-istall the Vista. Then it lasted 4 months before it needed it again. From the first day I used Vista I hated it.

  • Jeremy (GMT 10)02/09/2009 at 23:00

    yet

    It's been about 8 years since Mac OS X was released. We ran ads on TV saying we had no viruses. Boy did that stir up the hornets nest. Keeps trying code kiddies!

    There's a better one than that. the Vista developers decided that to make sure that media content played back without stuttering, they would make media events such as playing a sound or video high priority. The result of this was that when your computer played a system sound, the network throughput would drop to a crawl. (It's fixed now).

    My favourite bug bear with Vista is the five minute shut down warning. What genius ever thought that was a good idea? You go to get a cup of tea and come back to find the computer has shut down and you have lost everything you had open.

    Earlier I mentioned that I had installed Windows 2000 to use as a platform for SQL server Enterprise Manager. Bearing in mind that it is running as a virtual machine on my Mac, which is slower than running directly on the hardware, Win2K runs very nicely indeed.

  • Steven Roy02/09/2009 at 23:07

    what?!

    You haven't had that. Every few days I get a pop up box saying that something has been downloaded and needs to re-boot to install. It gives you a few options but the default is 5 minutes. So it pops up and starts counting down like a bomb on a James Bond film.

    Oh God. I do have to confess this has happened to me.

    If you install updates that need a restart, it warns you it's going to do it in 5 minutes (which obviously you can cancel!) but if you're not watching when it warns you, you come back to find the stupid machine restarted and all your work gone....

    That's Auto Update at work. OS X just pops up and asks you if you want to update stuff. You then have to type your password in befre it will install anything and it helpfully shows you which updates require a reboot.

    and you can pretty much do that with Vista as well. The problem is the defaults - which is what Steven is seeing. After the WinXP days, MSFT went overboard to try to enforce patching of vulnerabilities.

    These kids (regardless of age) that have time to write code (or hash together bits of code) that can take control of your routers etc really drive me nuts.
