Hello and welcome to Saturday. Today is World Environment Day which is an international day to raise awareness of... well, the environment, I'm guessing. That being the case, I think it's only fair to mention the panda, don't you? The panda does it's bit for the environment by generally keeping out of the way, and being pretty darn cute. Now, on to the bullet points.

  • After several long years of arguing that F1 is the only sport that matters, we are suddenly starting to awaken to the beauty of other sporting endeavours. I have long since been a fan of the tennis, but have been paying special attention over the last few months. Today and tomorrow we have the finals of the French Open, and soon it will be Wimbledon. We'll have plenty to say along the way, I'm sure.
  • We're beginning to plan our mission to cover all things Le Mans as the 24 Hour race slowly creeps up on us. All I know is that the fabulous Franck will be present, barring any more of his ribs suffering injuries, but Mr C has in mind multiple live threads and 24 hours worth of commenting as well. Sounds like fun!
  • Finally, it even looks like we might be making space on the site for football! With the World Cup rapidly approaching, we're planning how to cover the event - both for those who want to enjoy it, and for those who would rather steer clear of anything involving twenty-two players and a ball. We're hoping to please everyone, as if that is even possible.

That should do it for now. Don't forget to check out Nathan's great guest post, and visit this page if you're inspired to submit your own words for publishing. I will see you in the comments.

    Indycar practice returneth and because the session is being held at a vaguely reasonable hour where it's not too hot, there are more people in the stands than there were for practice; although that does not say much as the stands are virtually empty

    watching now. this is good.

  • Leigh O'Gorman05/06/2010 at 00:09

    watching now. this is good.

    did you notice the way the cars in the pack running 1st, 3rd and 5th ran high through the banking, while the cars 2nd, 4th and 6th ran low - it's like a strange kind of ballet

  • Leigh O'Gorman05/06/2010 at 00:14

    Hmmm... had a quick look at the ticket prices for raceday at Texas - mid level grandstand seat just by the start/finish line is $84 for race day.

    Not too bad i suppose, but there's not a whole lot else on during the day to fill that out.

  • startledbunny05/06/2010 at 00:15

    i know they might be off the track on pit lane, but it only takes on car to lose control over the finish line and veer into there

    i know they might be off the track on pit lane, but it only takes on car to lose control over the finish line and veer into there

    I think one of the reasons the pits are laid out as they are is they are absolutely massive and everyone must be behind the secondary wall. The pitlane is as wide as the track - i think the idea is a car will have scrubbed off enough speed before hitting the second inner wall to do too much harm

    Please. If I want to watch 22 overpaid idiots I'd much rather they were in racing cars.

    there's 24 idiots this year

    only thing I know is that it apparently saved me from a many dozens of lines of code. and it seemed much more natural to code than the equivalent plain JS, at least from the few functions I found the two ways of doing it

    I start in 35 minutes so am pondering getting up. The other half of me is thankful I don't live a 1hr commute away like so many of my colleagues.

    I moved house (temporarily) from 15min walking to 30min walking/bus. I'm suffering now :-(

  • Leigh O'Gorman05/06/2010 at 01:28

    you can get from bed to your desk in 35 minutes?

    with the minimum of effort and maximum cool of course

    I can get up and out in 5. I normally decide what to year the might before, I eat breakfast at work, I've always been a night time shower person. Mornings are easy. I read somewhere the average woman takes 70 minutes to get ready and I fell off my chair

    Including shower, but not breakfast, I must be just below those 70min from bed to the door. not bad for a man ;-)

  • RG05/06/2010 at 01:36

    how do you shower, eat and prepare in 5mins?

    Okay... 10 minutes. Shower takes what, 4 minutes-ish, i don't usually have that much for breakfast so it can be eaten in a second(ish) and getting ready can be done quite easily.

    30 minutes here, then a 12 minute drive which in my head takes 8 minutes. I don't actually wake up until 9.30, after my first cup of tea in the office has gone down..

    Yep and for that reason evening showers instead of morning showers rock. Wash the day away with no need to rush thinking "got to get going". Then you can just get up and vaguely aim for the door (after food, shave, etc).

    I'm often in a daze in the house. Especially if I've been up late commenting, blogging, watching telly etc. On those days the manic walk to the car and subsequent Colin McRae impression on the lanes to work are often enough. Need to work on that.

    I'm the opposite, I can't wake up until breakfast has been had. Same for weekends. Actually for several grand prix this year I've got up, pottered about, sat down and watched the race and not actually woken up until halfway through when I've made tea and cereal. And if something actually happens in the race I don't get it and I'm dozy.

  • Amy05/06/2010 at 05:05

    I am fussy, because I travel with a lot of gadgets I like the double adaptors so I can charge 2 things at once. They are strangely hard to find because most of the stores that have them seem to always be sold out. I have my UK one from when I went to Singapore but have been hunting down a Europe one for months.

    first 90 mins spent eating breakfast, feeding the animals, browsing online, and filling ipod with podcasts/music

    Oooh the opposite of a fee, they'd return my deposit :D

  • Lukeh05/06/2010 at 18:32

    If Lukeh's around, he may be interested to know that Guitar Hero 6 has been officially announced and that there's one song in the small selection of tracks revealed so far which may interest him ;)

    have known about it for a whole but I hate the Guitar Hero games so it's all good.

    seeing as i haven't seen anything on his website yet.. do we think this is a legitimate site?.. he had a just giving page last year.. and is going the Tri this year too.. so i'm thinking maybe it is. It seems strange that this year it says the page was created by Jenson.. when last year it was created by Jules..

    tweet him and ask

    he's never ever on twitter. i thought about tweeting him but i was out when he was online today. His mum appears to be linking to it alot though so i'm going to assume it's not made up.

    Question; if a photo is Creative commons on flickr then you have to credit it but a photo im using already has "photographed by... etc" as part of the photo, so do i still need to put it as a credit?

    good question. i guess not.

  • me05/06/2010 at 19:09

    although you still have to say it's CC. and point to the licence, right?

  • Jon Waldock05/06/2010 at 19:09

    good question. i guess not.

    ill link the picture to their flickr aswell, just to be safe

    over-crediting is never a bad thing, if you have space to do it. if not, the

    copyright sentence on it should be fine.

    it also depends on the creative commons license. normally you should link to the license, as they ask you to make clear to others this terms

  • Jon Waldock05/06/2010 at 19:10

    although you still have to say it's CC. and point to the licence, right?

    really? i've never done that, I always put "Credit: username" as a subtitle and then link that to the flickr account

    It all depends on the amount of effort, modeling information and historic data you have. I know a company that make a business of giving 4 days predictions of freezing days in the fruit farming region here. They have to do it to the hour and within a precision of 1 or 2 degrees Celsius, as the owners of the fields have to rent equipment (helicopter) and allocate working hours to counteract the frost.

    - 30 minutes to read

    - 10 minutes to get dressed

    - 10 more minutes of reading (I like my reading :) )

    :( That's a shame! MotoGP won't be the same without him these next few races. Hope he makes a swift and complete recovery.

    I really really hope to be wrong, but this may be the end of his career. With Lorenzo rising so fast, if there is any problem with his recovery he may chose to go rallying/F1 at the end of the season rather than suffering legs problems (and being beaten as a result) for a couple of years more.

    On the other hand, going by his record, he's very capable of coming back in 45 days and storm to win the championship to show everybody how good he is :-)
