W-W-W-W-Wed, W-W-W-Wednesday!

Hey everybody, it’s Gavin having a go a writing the daily again. Random fact for you, 14 years ago today my family landed in NZ after emigrating there. It was the start of an awesome adventure, but that's for another blog post I think...

I do hope you enjoyed the football last night. Proper men, liquid football, jumpers for goalposts. He tried to walk it in during the second half. What about that dodgy decision by the ref? He was clearly offside. However, it was a game of two halves and football was the winner on the day.

(By the way, I'm writing this post before the game starts!)

Right then, have we got some links for you? Of course we have...

So that's it for another day. Stay tuned for the obligatory World Cup post later, tonight's game between Spain and Germany looks to be a cracker!

    Question: (serious question, not sarcastic as it could be read..)

    What do Motorsport journalists do over a weekend?

  • Leigh O'Gorman06/07/2010 at 23:41

    Just sent off e-mails to various management companies. All I have to do now is wait for them to not get back to me...

    They journalise?

  • Jon Waldock06/07/2010 at 23:43

    Useful Mr Leigh, useful ;)

    I know they write race reports, do interviews and sometimes do some editorial type pieces, but is there anything else ive missed?

  • Leigh O'Gorman06/07/2010 at 23:43

    Hey Jon,

    Did you get your details worked out for Silverstone yet?

  • Jon Waldock06/07/2010 at 23:44

    Hey Jon,

    Which details specfically?

    Hey Jon,

    General stuff - I suppose where you can be at specific times and stuff. I assume yours is just a junior formula pass, right?

    Yeah it is, Friday i'm taking reasonably relaxed i think to get my bearings a bit, so other than GP2/GP3 practice/quali i can be anywhere!

    I would only add to that the networking. I would imagine a large part of their job is establishing and maintaining relationships to enable them to do obtain the information they need to do the other things you mention.

  • me07/07/2010 at 00:33

    In terms of car delay...how long are we talking about for Silverstone? an hour?

    what time, what route, and in or out? we one missed the whole of fp1, so more than an hour

    M40-A34 and in. Would usually take an hour.

    For example; GP3 quali starts at 8.45 Saturday, so i'd want to be in by 8.20, leaving home at 7 usually. Are we talking leaving at 6?

  • Jon Waldock07/07/2010 at 00:36

    Haven't the foggiest, I've never been for the GP weekend.

    It seems that some researchers have figured out that if a load of people tweet about a movie before it's released then it earns more money at the box office: http://www.mrscienceshow.com/2010/05/ep-130-using-twitter-to-predict-movie.html

    Kinda? I do understand where they're coming from - they would want to maximize the land and make sure they don't have vacancies over the weekend.

    It's a press pass, so it's not an official ticket. I'll be there for all 3 days, just not as a general admissions person and so the woman said that she couldn't guarentee that I'd be let onto the site

    Can I just say - this is such a faaaar cry from Lewis flying in his racing suit in Turkey (2008, was it?). McLaren's PR has improved by leaps and bounds this year.

    Probably no coincidence that this is also the first year that Anthony isn't managing Lewis...

    PC game will be avilable on Steam though. I guess you could find the old games as abandonware somewhere, these are the same games but with re-drawn HD graphics and added voices and extras.

    Bernie and Ron in conversation. Very interesting.

    Q: What do you make of the driver rivalry at Red Bull that culminated in their crash in Istanbul?

    RD: Only that every promoter, including Red Bull, should be happy about it. For weeks they have been in the media. Obviously nothing sells better than ‘bad news’. Am I right Bernie?

    BE: Absolutely!

  • Jon Waldock07/07/2010 at 09:43

    Bernie and Ron in conversation. Very interesting.

    Q: What was the problem between Hamilton and Alonso?

    RD: It was very simple - Alonso didn’t expect Hamilton to be that competitive in his first year. He told me at the beginning that it was my decision to sign a rookie like Hamilton, but that it could cost me the constructors’ championship. Fernando was calculating everything, but not that Lewis would challenge him. That affected him massively.

    It sure did cost them the WCC - but not for the reasons either had in mind...

    I'm still very confused as to why Mclaren scored no constructors points in Hungary. It dosen't matter overall because they lost all of them, but F1.com says;

    Note - McLaren scored no constructors' points as penalty for Alonso impeding Hamilton during qualifying.

    Which I don't quite understand. Why do Mclaren loose points for Alonsos issue?

    The stewards didn't believe that McLaren intentionally held Alonso in the pits, which is what Ron claimed.

    Which I don't quite understand. Why do Mclaren lose points for Alonsos issue?

    The short answer is - they shouldn't have. I fully agreed with the Alonso penalty, but not with the McLaren penalty. It was Alonso's decision to impede Hamilton, not McLaren's.

    That said, people at the time still thought that the FIA was favoring Ferrari...

  • Journeyer07/07/2010 at 10:47

    Just for curiosity's sake I checked the price to send the Mario and Luigi cushions to the UK on Amazon. $31.90 = £21.83 for the cushions plus £25.98 for delivery. If I hadn't just spent money in Ikea...

    Jaime Alguersuari is only a few months out of kindergarten (in terms of his age) but he is driving like a veteran. He has done very well this year and as he learns more we expect to see him move into a better car. A man worth watching.

    he is doing better this year - he's held his own against buemi, beating him occasionally, but he hasn't exactly blown him away, either. i have yet to be fully convinced, but i am keeping an eye on him.

    *cries* i haven't seen you since February! #badtimes

    ahh, that's true.

    i do love the idea of celebrity banner spotting though. if it helps, money is pretty much the only issue with going to spa. at least for me. christine?

    moving is expensive.

    I'll try be there.. and maybe bring Emily :)

  • Amy07/07/2010 at 14:05

    I'll try be there.. and maybe bring Emily :)

    it might be nice to meet some folk before trying to live with them for four days, but I would understand if its tricky for any of the non-London-living Spa folk to get to London so soon before we leave.

    we'll try take the banner to spa and get some pics (i was thinking of making a huge 5livef1 one too.. maybe to give to crofty.. or holly just cause they are awesome. not sure if that's too much....

  • Alex Andronov07/07/2010 at 14:38

    Oooh Christine...

    So... I have been checking with Fourstar and he has provided me with the rules governing golden shoes

    The Golden Shoe will be awarded to the player who scores the

    most goals in the fi nal competition. If two or more players score

    the same number of goals, the number of assists (as determined

    by the members of the FIFA Technical Study Group) will be decisive.

    Each goal is worth three points and each assist one point. If two or

    more players are still equal after taking into account the number

    of assists, the total minutes played in the tournament will be taken

    into account, with the player playing fewer minutes ranked first.

    As far as we can tell this third place match counts for golden shoe calculations... So there is a chance that Forlan could overtake Sneijder and Villa who have five (Forlan has 4).

  • Pat W07/07/2010 at 14:38

    Kevin lives in Frome!!!

    And the picture on his Wikipedia page was taken at the Goodwood Festival of Speed...

    It all comes together

  • me07/07/2010 at 14:39

    I won't say anything that Sneijder and Villa...and Ozil and Muller...are still in the competition. As well as Suarez in theory, cos Suarez rules.

    No. Big bunker. Should have said:

    The cheapest way to get a bunker is to rent a factory in Switzerland. All Swiss factories by law have a huge nuclear bunker under them.

    Okay... Wikipedia says he studied it at university, but he's been mainly doing things like designing...

    After graduating, he trained and worked as a theatre designer, then set up his own lighting design practice and manufacturing business 'McCloud Lighting' - at one point employing 26 people.[4] His work includes the carved and painted rococo-style vegetable ceiling in the Food Halls at Harrods, many projects in conjunction with J.J Desmond Interiors and lighting installations at Ely Cathedral, Edinburgh Castle, the Savoy and the Dorchester Hotel and also Tesco supermarket in Finglas, Dublin, Ireland. Today he concentrates on television work, journalism and product design, including work for British manufacturers such as Fired Earth.

    From an interview in 2003

    McCloud denies being a frustrated architect, despite the fact that he is so knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. 'Architecture is a terrible job, a very stressful job,' he says. 'Everything you do is a prototype. Imagine being a car manufacturer, and every car you do has to be different and made from scratch. I couldn't cope with all the detailed drawings. I would go quietly mad working on the same project month after month after month.'

  • Marilene Riddle07/07/2010 at 14:48

    ART has withdrawn their F1 entry bid:

    http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/85047

    "ART Grand Prix had forged strong bonds with several technical and financial partners but with unfavourable economic conditions they could not gather the necessary guarantees to ensure the stability of the project in the long term."

    I wonder if they looked into buying part or all of STR or Sauber. Surely, they could get involved with what would be established teams at a slightly cheaper price? More cost-efficient too, IMO.

    http://twitpic.com/2399j8/full

    Looks like you have an Anytime ticket (most expensive), an Off Peak ticket (next expensive) and Advance tickets which are priced according to the train you are booked on but can only be used on that specific service.

    It really depends on how confident you are that you will make a specific train. The Advance tickets vary due to the popularity of the train.

    Also, those are single fares, are you coming back? ;)

    That makes it a bit more complicated. Also, travelling in & out of London causes it's own variations due to the volume of passengers at the peak. The Train Operators try & set prices to get people to travel at times when there are fewer passengers which won't help you trying to get there in the morning.

    it's very awesome. it's even got a touch screen so when you're really reaching up high and can't reach the shutter you press the screen and it takes the picture. the quality of the photos is very very good too! colours are almost perfect. HD camera which with a 2GB SD can shoot an hours worth of video. I enjoyed playing around with it alot. However i'm one of those people who like to have much more control over their camera, which is why all the blink detection etc annoys me. however once i got used to it and switched it onto manual mode i found myself wanting it more and more.

    while at goodwood it was perfect for a second camera. i felt like a proper motorsports photographer, one with my larger lens and the other with a smaller one. the best set up :)

  • lou07/07/2010 at 20:27

    blink detection?

    yeah, once you press the shutter you can programme it to take two shots one after the other - reducing the chance of you blinking in one of the pics. it automatically selects the best one which is the one you see... i think... i don't fully understand it... but i don't like silly things like that. just gimme a nice camera, if i take a pic where someone isn't smiling or they are blinking i'll take it again..

    it's not easy trying to see the car in on the camera screen in daylight, and timing it to press the shutter, so it takes the pic at the right time.

    the camera i have now is quicker, but a lot of basic digital cameras take an age to take the shot.

    shoot.

  • lou07/07/2010 at 22:33

    shoot.

    once i've finished sorting through the photos i've uploaded.. and have exported them to another file on my hard drive... how to i like... wipe clean lightroom so i can import more?..

    you don't normally need to wipe it. they just stay there. usually i delete the exports after uploading to flickr.

    the lightroom database remembers all of your changes you just back up the database regularly.

  • lou07/07/2010 at 22:38

    what worries me is where they are saved to.. i only have 3GB left on one of the hard drives on my laptop..

  • me07/07/2010 at 22:40

    i would imagine you can move the database to another drive and use it directly from there. i don't know too much about that to be honest, i just let it do it's thing.

    for the moment, i wouldn't delete anything, spend a bit more time with it and watch all of the tutorial videos. there are several ways of using the workflow to suit your needs, but i'm pretty sure none of the involve removing stuff from lightroom.

    no he isn't... he's missing out by not knowing or listening to bombay bicycle club..

    the fact you can't find the erase option, tells me there probably isn't one. i haven't looked, but i only remember seeing a "delete individual photo" option. not "wipe database".

    ahhh! i have found that if i make a new catalog then i can trick myself into thinking that lightroom hasn't saved anything... ahhhh :) what i don't remember wont hurt me :)

    please listen to bombay bicycle club.. they are amazing.... do i need to ask Alex to tell you they are good too.. (like i did with Gavin and Stacey?)

    I will definitely do so.... tomorrow, as I am very tired :( but i will listen to them. Now I go to bed though, night everyone

  • me07/07/2010 at 22:51

    it might be worth having a "motorsport" catalogue and another for everything else. i'm pretty sure you won't never one for every single shoot.

  • lou07/07/2010 at 22:52

    ah that's true, i may do that. although seeing as i'm going through all my goodwood pics atm i have made a goodwood catalogue cause i've nearly got 2,000 shots all together.

  • me07/07/2010 at 22:55

    ah that's true, i may do that. although seeing as i'm going through all my goodwood pics atm i have made a goodwood catalogue cause i've nearly got 2,000 shots all together.

    fair enough. my catalogue is about 15,000. not sure i've loaded all of them, but a good number and it's still pretty quick.

    woooah! okay. you're using a lovely mac though.. i'm using a dying acer :( although lightroom is much nicer for my laptop than batch editing in photoshop is :)

  • Lukeh07/07/2010 at 22:57

    woooah! okay. you're using a lovely mac though.. i'm using a dying acer that is determined to make people burn cd's at any possible cost :( although lightroom is much nicer for my laptop than batch editing in photoshop is :)

    OK, I'm really going now *runs*

    photoshop is really not good at batch editing. wonderful for single photo styling though.
