Monday morning again, and time to recover from another weekend of racing action. Although, given that the GP was cut short, we had plenty of time to do that yesterday as well. Here's what's on topic today:

  • On that subject, Bernie has defended his start time decision and said that he has no plans to move it. The argument is that you can control the time but not the weather, and Flavio Briatore agrees with this. Meanwhile bosses at the Malaysian circuit have said they'll review it, but presumably what Bernie wants, Bernie gets.
  • The Paddock Life: Sepang Edition makes for a good read. I'm pretty sure I read about the snake thing on the BBC, so I guess it was someone over there. I also like the idea of Patrick Head just sitting in his car waiting for the rain to stop.
  • Finally, Martin Whitmarsh has placed his future in the shareholder's hands, suggesting that whilst he can make the decision whether he wants to stay or not, it is ultimately not his call to make. He adds that they will be planning on ways to do things better. I guess telling the truth would be a start?

That's all for now. Don't worry about staying on topic, that's what the daily thread is here for. There will probably be more reaction to yesterdays goings on throughout the day, so please feel free to share and discuss. I will see you in the comments.

    Felipe baby, stay cool!

    I've just made Zoe listen to the live show with me (slowly I'll get her addicted) and she loves Rob Smedley too. Has he been to Jamaica recently?

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)06/04/2009 at 08:36

    Podcast watch:

    Has anyone seen the Williams, Renault or FIFI podcasts come out yet?

    I must say that the Chequered Flag is not as good this year without Mo...

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 08:42

    Morning all... I'm all caught up! Phew!

    Well I'm all caught up with the race. On the podcast front I'm up to mid way through aSide with Joe!

    Poppycock. The race is run at the wrong time of year, for Jenson's sake!

    I'm just waiting for Bernie to come out and say that under his medals system, Jenson's win would have been worth a lot more than half points!

    The thing that annoys me about Martin is that he handled the whole thing like a politician caught red-handed. Untruths? Where I come from we call them lies!

    Greetings from Los Angeles. I'm a video editor. Will you please give me a high-paying job working on your site? No? OK, next question....

    Can someone explain the moment late in the BBC Sepang coverage from Brawn's hospitality suite wherein John Button laughingly declined to answer a question from Coulthard, saying "I'm not talking to you David", and then giggling something about Monaco? Coulthard just snickered with a look of defeat, and Jordan made a dismissive comment about it, but does anyone know the details? Is there a story worth knowing?

    I like the attention you guys give to F1... I just wish "me" had a better nickname! Anything... Something funny, something serious, anything but the first person plural, because I worry it confuses new visitors to your site.

    (Also, if it's worth anything, we're all still embarrassed over here about Indy '05.)

    He also gets referred to as this when he makes comments that end up in the Digest shows.

  • Lukeh06/04/2009 at 08:57

    Good morning everyone. I had a bizarre dream last night that Kimi was presenting This Morning, i can't actually remember much from the dream but just Kimi with Fern Britton getting really excited about Eastenders and stuff... huh.

  • Jeremy06/04/2009 at 08:58

    As in Mr Christine. Hmmm... maybe a job for both of them on Play School? I take it CBBC is Childrens BBC?

    I’m just waiting for Bernie to come out and say that under his medals system, Jenson’s win would have been worth a lot more than half points!

    A theory about Bernie's points system obsession: Two of the least appealing races last year were Valencia and Singapore. Without Ferrari pitlane shenanigans, they wouldn't have been worth watching. Valencia in particular looked fenced-up like a prison camp, and neither course encouraged overtaking. Recall the last laps of Singapore in particular... With both Ferraris out of the action, Hamilton was content to follow Rosberg to the podium rather than risk any points in a crash.

    So imagine Bernie's phone calls the next morning from the Singapore city council: "You promised us an exciting race! We spent billions for you! We shut down our elegant downtown and marina for a week! We choked our waterfront parkland with expensive grandstand buildings! We brought in thousands of independently powered lights just so your precious audience in Liverpool wouldn't have to change their TV habits! And in the last moments of a close race, the most exiting, best-equipped driver in your stable didn't even try to win!"

    Bernie doesn't want to take those calls again if a contender makes a decision like Lewis made. The fact that the 2008 season couldn't have endied with more excitement probably doesn't play into his calculations. Bernie's a money guy, not a sports guy: When he talks freely in interviews he speaks of salesmanship and deal-making rather than athletic competition.

    Who knows what promises he's made to the European broadcasters. It's a good wager that we'll see more twilight races.

  • Jon Waldock06/04/2009 at 09:13

    Right, ITV Player has yesterdays British Touring Car Program on it....with support races.....6 hours of racing here i come :D

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)06/04/2009 at 09:16

    I'm doing OK, But I choose not to change my drivers yet. It didn't help that VET & KUB retired from both races but I have had two drivers on the podium both times!

  • Jon Waldock06/04/2009 at 09:25

    Yup, but it’s a bad defence for a half-race isn’t it?

    Plus, it was kind of his fault that it ended early, if it started normal time then we wouldnt have had the half points problem (the benefits of hindsight!)

    that is kinda the intention. partly to be difficult, but mostly because your focus is christine.

  • me06/04/2009 at 09:38

    Who knows what promises he’s made to the European broadcasters. It’s a good wager that we’ll see more twilight races.

    agreed. he really wants lots of night races, but costs won't allowed for it and he won't budge on the profit a circuit can take from him.

    as it goes, while the first two twilight races did cause some problems, they weren't enough to deter the man from continuing the trend further.

    From Jake - http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/jakehumphrey/2009/04/filling_for_britain_at_storm_t.html

    Oh, one last note, apologies for no F1 Forum this week. Over 300,000 people pressed red and watched last weekend, which is incredible and justifies our decision to give you more coverage.

    We are committed to it as an important and unique part of our build up. The thinking this week was that after 75 minutes of chatting, it was probably not necessary as all the angles had been covered already - and we'd run over our alloted time-slot on BBC1 anyway.

    I hold my hands up, though, as I should have mentioned there would be no Forum on air but I ran out of time...

  • Lukeh06/04/2009 at 09:41

    The upside was that we had an extra hour of time yesterday...

  • Cridland06/04/2009 at 09:47

    Thanks for forgiving typos, I meant first person singular anyway.

    Are you guys steamed at Lewis, or is he forgiven? The way he dashed out of the garage on Saturday made it a surprise when he was smiling and backslapping with the crew before the start of the race.

    Still annoyed at him from my point of view but partly is because he didn't go to Trulli to apologise sooner than he did and because of the actual lying. Although I'm more annoyed at McLaren than him.

    It's strange so far this season with the 'big 2 teams' how almost disrespectful they seem. We've had a lying scandal that has really rocked McLaren's boat and Ferrari struggle to get points with a driver who continues to look completely uninterested in being on the grid, more interested in getting out to have an ice cream and stroll about than to work with the team. It may just be my own view that it seemed disrespectful though.

    "Jenson Button: the most gifted driver on the grid"

    I have come to the startling conclusion that I don't like Ed Gorman's blog

  • Cridland06/04/2009 at 10:15

    Although I’m more annoyed at McLaren than him.

    I kinda wonder if the Ryan fellow had some sort of supervision under Dennis that he didn't have under Whitmarsh... Some people say these things happen with the stewards every day, but this time the happened to get busted. But I'd bet you don't get to be Ron Dennis without knowing exactly how much you can trust people and exactly when you have to tug the reins.

    with a driver who continues to look completely uninterested in being on the grid, more interested in getting out to have an ice cream and stroll about than to work with the team.

    Maybe we have to forgive Kimi's weird moods, but remember, he had an ice cream AND a cola; that's a lot of junk food for a guy who needs to be as fit as an F1 driver.

  • Dank06/04/2009 at 10:15

    I can't quite put my finger on as to why, but last year I rather enjoyed reading his blog. This year, it just seems, different? Less personal perhaps?

    Why do people do that, a driver wins 2 races on the trot (in easily the best car) and he's suddenly the best thing since sliced bread. I bet he said the same thing about Hammy last year!

    I'd love to see every sector time of every lap for every driver that includes how much fuel they were carrying (estimate based on pit stop stationary time?) and what tyre they were on.

    Can this already be done somewhere? Forix?

    Last year before finding streams on the net (thanks SPC) I used to 'watch' the race via Live Timing because the broadcast was always delayed in Australia. I'd tape the race and watch it the next day.

    also, if there's any sponsorship going around, i would argue that an energetic, knowledgeable and talented female formula 1 fan is of far more interest to those with deep pockets, than a nameless, camera shy geek. wouldn't you?

  • Cridland06/04/2009 at 12:26

    Props to C; but I've met tragically few women, especially aspiring talents, who really want to spend time making chromakeys look as good as possible.

    You could call yourself Nigel the Gnarled Gnome and that would discourage unnecessary attention, leaving Christine in the forefront... But in that first meeting with the venture capitalists, everyone would know who Christine was talking about when she said "...And of course, we're going to need a travel budget for Nigel, too..."

    The web continues to steal attention from people who used to watch TV. But it's complicated, and it might go easier for the money people if things had easy-to-grasp names. (Although I love the real-time doohickey for being called the real-time doohickey.)

    There's a fellow named Leo Laporte in California, a radio guy and former talent on a cable tech-news channel, who produces about a dozen podcasts a week as well as a live daily video feed of himself working in the office (with two chatrooms to boot.) Audio downloads are here. During west coast business hours, there's usually a video feed here, and sometimes he reruns videos overnight. Some of the shows aren't fascinating, but does a lot of them.

    So far as I know, he's your only peer as a cottage operation. (And with a broadcast radio show, he makes a good living at it!)

  • me06/04/2009 at 12:26

    I think one of our biggest principles is not to change what we do to attract the "money people". I can't speak for Mr C, but I've got no interest in asking VCs for a travel budget. Therefore, if me wants to be called me, or Mr C, or BananaHead, then that's completely fine.

    You should have one for F1

    One to talk about other sport you like

    Malaysia Race Quote:

    That was possibly the best half-race I have ever seen. Overtaking, fighting for position... some great action out there today! However, maybe I wished too hard when I asked for rain the other day ;-)

    It will be interesting to see when all the cars have KERS - as it seemed that the best battles were between KERS and non-KERS cars. Finally, Ferrari will have to be very worried as they have made the worst start since 1992 and they get things very wrong today - how much do they miss Ross Brawn now?

  • Christine06/04/2009 at 15:24

    So, the fact that neither Whitmarsh nor Haug mention Kovi in the post-race quotes is:

    a) Because what can you say about a man that can't make it round one lap

    b) Because they feel like they need to start mending things with Lewis

    c) a coincidence

    Other than him saying "I made a mistake" it has never been mentioned again. Wasn't even shown on a replay.

    I must own up, my support of him started as an in-joke that I "couldn't handle 2007 with no Finns in the team" and somehow has blossomed into actual support.

    I don't buy it. Did you see how violent the car snapped out of line? I bet you he pressed the KERS button too early and it spun the car off!

    He probably had to get out of the throttle, lost downforce and when it snapped sideways, he just couldn't catch it. Could be the opposite though - he was tank slapping and decided to try planting the foot.

    Malaysian Grand Prix Review

    I was unable to see the race live but I was successful in avoiding all news sources until I was able to view a recording of the race despite my brothers' best efforts to ruin it by telling me the results. The race was very enjoyable to watch right from the start and I liked watching Nico take the lead out of the first corner. It was disappointing to see him fade away during the race once again but still it is exciting that he has been in the points and constantly challenging at the top so far this season. Ferrari were disappointing once again and it is amazing that a slower McLaren has more points than them even when stewards keep on taking points off. Glock was the highlight of the race and had some of the best overtaking maneuvers on the likes of Kimi and Alonso and once again in the later stages when he was on the right tyres and driving around on the outside of everyone. It was a shame to see him demoted down to third when he could have easily been first had the race ended a little earlier. The end was a bit anticlimactic but the race more than made up for the excitement even in the short duration that it lasted. Furthermore it is great to see my Fantasy Racers team move up to 18th. Even though it is still early, the Brawn looks too fast to catch and Button is running away with the championship.

    Malaysian Grand Prix Review

    Does it seem to be the more experienced teams that are doing better? As Brawn, Toyota, Red Bull and Williams seem to have had more stable and more experienced team management over the winter. Perhaps that has been the advantage so far. Overall it does seem that whatever the weather that Brawn is QUICK, QUICK, QUICK!

    “Jenson Button: the most gifted driver on the grid” I have come to the startling conclusion that I don’t like Ed Gorman’s blog

    wtf? I rarely read Ed Gorman. The first time I came across him was early last season and the garbage he was spouting resulted in me posting a comment asking if he knew anything about motor racing or was this his first season.

  • Steven Roy06/04/2009 at 17:15

    I kinda wonder if the Ryan fellow had some sort of supervision under Dennis that he didn’t have under Whitmarsh… Some people say these things happen with the stewards every day, but this time the happened to get busted. But I’d bet you don’t get to be Ron Dennis without knowing exactly how much you can trust people and exactly when you have to tug the reins.

    He was team manager until last season when Ron promoted him to sporting director. There was no sporting director previously so I assume there was no significant difference in his role. Forget the fact that Whitmarsh is now called the team principal. Nothing has changed at McLaren.

    Really. I got the impression later that he had been around forever. Of course I rarely read him again after that. The only reason I went to the Times site was to follow up on the Martin Brundle column when he suggested that the FIA pursuit of McLaren seemed like a witch hunt.

    you wouldn't believe the tactics my brothers resorted to. Imagine drivng 275 miles on Sunday without ever looking back in the rear view mirror because the name of the winner was stuck on the rear window. If F1 drivers can drive with only looking at the side mirrors then so can I.

    a bit rash i know, but we're now spending more time moving comments between threads (very forum-esque), than we are doing anything productive. it's completely my fault and i apologise in advance.

    Same engine for F1, F2 and WRC.

    Now that is interesting because last week somewhere I read a comment from Audi about making a multi-class engine along the same lines. I assumed he was just trying to get some publicity but either Audi and Max are together on this or Max read the same thing and decided the idea was insane enough to be one of his own.

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 20:42

    I would like everyone to give Legard more time to mature into the role. He seemed excited at the right times and he read the race better than Brundle twice (once per weekend seems to be his ticket) and that's no mean feat.

  • Scott Dryden06/04/2009 at 20:44

    Has anyone read Chris Balfe's latest article on Pitpass? I decided to stick with the website even after the recent controversy about it on here, based on the fact that in the past it could be relied upon for providing a decent amount of original F1-related views.

    The most recent article really is a new low. It comes across as incredibly bitter, and a good third is comprised of Mr. Balfe detailing some of his political opinions. If I wanted to read such content, there's already plenty of it out there in the blogosphere already.

    I've read that Mr. Balfe no longer has the access he used to, which I guess would explain both the bitterness and his new-found need to write about material largely unrelated to Formula One.

    I certainly won't be regularly visiting Pitpass in the future.

  • me06/04/2009 at 20:44

    You would not believe the criticism he used to get. There were huge numbers of people who hated his commentary. I spent years telling him that when he went they would change their minds and most of the replies I got were less than complimentary about my judgement.

  • Andy Taylor06/04/2009 at 21:25

    there is a difference… i actually mean no

    So did he.

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:25

    Is there a denial stage? I think he may be at that point.

    There is no denial stage!!!

  • Jackie06/04/2009 at 21:25

    Late 80's, 87 I think

  • Pat W06/04/2009 at 21:29

    Just checking my incoming links on the blog.. some 15 of the last 40 visitors arrived to find the song the BBC used to close the coverage.

  • me06/04/2009 at 21:29

    what’s the podcast number for the christmas party?

    sadly live videos are offline (aside from sundays) due to bandwidth / costs issues, so you can't go look. they'll be back nearer the end if the week though.

  • Jon Waldock06/04/2009 at 21:29

    what’s the podcast number for the christmas party?

    im not sure the podcast gives you a full feel for it....you need to watch the live recording :D

  • lou06/04/2009 at 21:29

  • RG06/04/2009 at 21:30

    Aye, but not the party bit, just the awards and the 12 days of xmas thingy

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:32

    Aye, but not the party bit, just the awards and the 12 days of xmas thingy

    Yup, 12 days starts at 23:10 of Ep 87

  • me06/04/2009 at 21:32

    ahh, the memories.

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:33

    That was amazing. :D

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 21:34

    I did have some lengthy negotiations today at the office about being off on SidepodScience day... And it looks like it might be possible but I will have to go to the office in the morning...

    But I see you guys are meeting at 1pm ish! Woo and indeed hoo!

    Is the plan to have eaten earlier and then science it up? And then see what happens after?

    And I heard Christine is running away to join the circus over the weekend. Presumably she's back for this?

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:35

    w00t!

    Is the plan to have eaten earlier and then science it up? And then see what happens after?

    I'm going in early in the morning to taunt everyone in the office for a few minutes * ;) * and then I'm off to do some shopping. Will probably find a burger or steak or something while shopping.

    Then a taxi to the Science Museum

  • Jackie06/04/2009 at 21:37

    That was amazing. :D

    it is funny

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:37

    More records Flibster?

  • Flibster06/04/2009 at 21:39

    More records Flibster?

    Might be.

    The other half found the other 2 though - and the credit card bill. Damn...

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:40

    The other half found the other 2 though - and the credit card bill. Damn…

    Oops, looks like your clean up jobs don't extend beyond the bathroom then ;)

  • Steven Roy06/04/2009 at 21:41

    YOU COULD HOST!!!!

    erm.. no.

    I thought we had come to a decision on you hosting a panel

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:41

    ahh, the memories.

    Oh, I'm gonna be laughing for so long now...

  • RG06/04/2009 at 21:41

    I thought we had come to a decision on you hosting a panel

    She took the name of the list

  • Flibster06/04/2009 at 21:41

    Oops, looks like your clean up jobs don’t extend beyond the bathroom then ;)

    Bathroom is spotless. :D

    Obvious thing is, if I buy more records - put them on the connect card. ;)

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:41

    We need more cupcakes!!

  • Steven Roy06/04/2009 at 21:42

    Don't know what you mean.

  • lou06/04/2009 at 21:42

    i'll host a panel... i said i would... just not at the science museum...

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:43

    Any chance these could be part of Jenson's helmet design ideas?

  • Jackie06/04/2009 at 21:43

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:44

    You never said, "but not at the Science Museum" earlier, talk about being conditional, yeesh! :D

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:44

    Any chance these could be part of Jenson’s helmet design ideas?

    Kimi should wear one. It'd look good in a Ferrari!

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 21:45

    By the way... For everyone who thinks that I am the one who started the singing trend from Sidepodcast I would like to make a call back to the comment that started it all:

    http://12seconds.tv/channel/sidepodcast/29503

    It was my fault and I goaded Christine into it. But it was awesome... And it was also the weekend that Buemi became Mr Potato Head!

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:45

    I see Jenson's Design a Helmet competition has returned.

  • Steven Roy06/04/2009 at 21:46

    We discussed it for a couple of minutes after that and Lou decided that she really wanted to do it.

  • RG06/04/2009 at 21:46

    We must have had singing before that?

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 21:46

    I hope that I have provided for you all the ultimate ear worm :)

    You'll still be singing it tomorrow morning!!!!

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:46

    And I’ve just got that bloomin song out of my head, I HATE YOU

    Don't hate, change. :D

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:46

    it was more than a couple of minutes and i don't really want to do it ;)

  • Steven Roy06/04/2009 at 21:47

    It’s .. erm big!

    It's only 150 more than Lou and 300 more than Gavin.

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:47

    By the way… For everyone who thinks that I am the one who started the singing trend from Sidepodcast I would like to make a call back to the comment that started it all:

    Was the Giggles rap not before that?

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 21:47

    We must have had singing before that?

    It's possible... I can't think what it was though.

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:48

    It’s possible… I can’t think what it was though.

    Hmmmmmmmm ;)

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:48

    Was the Giggles rap not before that?

    Nooo. Giggles rap was about Vettel.

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:49

    It’s possible… I can’t think what it was though.

    Erm... 'me' had a guitar in one of the podcasts?

    No singing, though...

  • RG06/04/2009 at 21:49

    It’s only 150 more than Lou and 300 more than Gavin.

    1210 more than me in 4th though.

  • Jackie06/04/2009 at 21:49

    Ah but it was the headline count that caught my eye :D .. and I remember when we all ooed and ahhed when Lou did 1100 in the off season

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:50

    Nooo. Giggles rap was about Vettel.

    I know, but when was it?

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 21:50

    Was the Giggles rap not before that?

    I don't think so... That was November I think

  • Steven Roy06/04/2009 at 21:50

    it was more than a couple of minutes and i don’t really want to do it ;)

    OK 3 minutes and you do. You just probably won't realise till afterwards.

  • RG06/04/2009 at 21:50

    I don’t think so… That was November I think

    Yeah, the last Panel was in November and it was in the week before

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 21:50

    Erm… ‘me’ had a guitar in one of the podcasts?

    Somebody did a song about Lewis. Austrians? Australians?

  • Steven Roy06/04/2009 at 21:51

    Was the Giggles rap not before that?

    That was on the podpanel I hosted.

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:51

    Somebody did a song about Lewis. Austrians? Australians?

    There were no Austrians. ;)

  • lou06/04/2009 at 21:51

    It’s only 150 more than Lou and 300 more than Gavin.

    blimey a few weeks on holiday and i'm already 2nd... i have been revising, honest.

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:52

    I don’t think so… That was November I think

    Really? Thought it was more recent then that...

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:52

    Somebody did a song about Lewis. Austrians? Australians?

    Wasn't that a clip from somewhwhere else though

    This ( http://12seconds.tv/channel/sidepodcast/29503 ) must've have been before drop.io then

  • lou06/04/2009 at 21:52

    OK 3 minutes and you do. You just probably won’t realise till afterwards.

    haha.

  • Bassano Clapper06/04/2009 at 21:52

    Really? Thought it was more recent then that…

    It was repeated in one of the end of year shows I think

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:53

    This ( http://12seconds.tv/channel/sidepodcast/29503 ) must’ve have been before drop.io then

    Nope.

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:54

    Nope.

    I'm not sure why that idea didn't last?

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 21:54

    There were no Austrians. ;)

    Nope.

    Have just seen the 1st ep with the "12 seconds" explanation.

    New one on me

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:54

    1210 more than me in 4th though.

    I haven't been up there for ages. :(

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 21:55

    There were no Austrians. ;)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=GB&hl=en-GB&v=d6opMZBux1w

    Right that was from http://www.sidepodcast.com/2008/11/04/episode-83-i-dont-know-if-anyone-will-remember-that/

    Which is also in November so I think it was the Lewis song that set me off for the Vettel rap. I thought it was post Mark Webber breaking his leg when was that?

  • Christine06/04/2009 at 21:56

    I’m not sure why that idea didn’t last?

    Which idea, the 12 seconds one?

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:57

    Which is also in November so I think it was the Lewis song that set me off for the Vettel rap.

    That was in November??? I was thinking July or something. Only a few moths out!

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:57

    Which idea, the 12 seconds one?

    Yup.

  • Alex Andronov06/04/2009 at 21:57

    The moths do butterfly by don't they ;)

  • Christine06/04/2009 at 21:58

    Yup.

    I couldn't get it to work reliably. The site didn't like my webcam, or something wasn't working. Would have to redo each video about six times because the audio would cutout, or it would skip frames.

    I reaaally wanted it to work as a replacement to SPC diaries, but it was just too flaky. I don't know if they've fixed it by now though.

  • Dom06/04/2009 at 21:58

    I am way behind the curve on this one but still its funny. I came across the 2008 IgNobel prize winners earlier. They are awarded for achievements that first make people laugh then make them think. Manly think how could people decide to research stuff like that. As an example the medecine prize was given to a group who demonstrated that high priced fake medecine are more effective than low priced fake medecine.

    I bet the winners of the Economics Prize didn't mind spending countless hours researching. ;)
