Yes it used to be, but we won't be running one layout exclusively anymore.
If you're after the layout, it was made by Phil 'PMD9409' Diaz and is part of his Drift Layout Pack, we just ran a slightly modified version with a lower object count for performance reasons.
E: Also I'd like to make something clear: This is not a new incarnation, it's exactly the same thing that went offline a couple of months ago, except now running 6B obviously. The InSim is identical, aside from a few minor fixes and compatibility modifications to make it work with 6B. The web-accessible toplist is no longer operational either.
I've had my G25 for four years, never had any problems with the wheel or pedals, but the shifter had to have virtually all original wiring replaced to function reliably.
Always 100% ingame FFB and 100% in profiler, 101% before they had fixed the non-linear-scaling issue. Pedals filled to the brim with dirt, dust and doghair, no spiking at all.
I open the wheel up at least twice a year for routine inspection and maintenance (grease), never had to do any actual repairs until ~3 weeks ago. Optical encoder casing had shaken itself loose, which caused friction between the PCB and plastic encoder wheel, which fractured as a result of that. A dab of hotglue solved that problem
It's never lost alignment, never lost FFB, never caught fire, never had electrical issues of any kind, it has no play, it's no louder than it was back when it was new, all buttons are working, it doesn't overheat... Yeah, I'd call it reliable all in all.
Nice approach to making the world seem a happier place than it is, but I'm not going to argue about definitions. As I said, I actually don't want this discussion to stretch out.
No, ignoring it is being oblivious to it. Nothing more, nothing less.
I'd say actual parenting is exactly the right way, but what do I know
Actually, according to your point of view, aren't parents passively condoning everything their child does? Don't respond, I know full well you don't mean that, just pointing it out.
I'll pick this up even though it wasn't directed at me. No, I wouldn't be offended (substituting "Austrians" for "Hungarians" of course), because I partly agree () and because, quite clearly, you and all the other people are idiots. I'd be one if I cared what you have to say.
Is this in reference to racist activist groups / hate groups? Do you think those are the only racists? I assure you, of all the racists on this planet, very few are member of any racism-related groups. Fewer still are publicly attacking ethnic groups or hatemongering, and the "public" part is the important thing.
They wouldn't because they wouldn't exist, at least not as law enforcers since there wouldn't be any laws to enforce. However, I was in fact referring to what the current western society considers freedom. Unlike a murderer - who to be called that must have murdered someone -, a racist does no harm just by being. You could be a racist for all we know, just an introverted one so to speak. A racist is defined not through actions but thoughts, and those needn't be expressed to exist.
Don't be silly, of course you have the right to be a racist. You even have the right to express that racism to some extent, though it is true that that's where some governments (and community managers, moderators, server admins, etc. for that matter) draw the line, particularly when - as col correctly states - you express it in a manner where it might incite others to adopt - and perhaps act on - your views.
Obviously this discussion has a lot of potential of growing long and windy, potential I'd like to see unutilised to be quite frank. My point was: Unlike physical attacks, verbal ones (at least written ones, oral ones depend upon method of communication) can be ignored. You're certainly not going to turn a racist by banning him from an LFS host.
Guys, this is Germany you're talking about, being German they obviously keep statistics (as do we, Austrians that is).
65.4% of all registered passenger cars are German-made (or at least wear a German brand's badge) and of 42.9 million passenger cars total, 9.1 million are VAGs, so about every fourth. This is straight from the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (Federal Motor Transport Authority) dated 01.01.2012, no bullshit made up statistics.
I didn't know Joe, I only read a few posts of his, but that was enough to respect him. Not even necessarily for their content, but simply the eloquent and witty way in which they were written.
His family and friends won't have much use for my thoughts, but they might take comfort in knowing he was respected by complete strangers, so particularly his parents must have done something quite right
Useless or not, for tradition's sake, my thoughts go out to them.
Don't know about "local", but Fleurop (link goes straight to Sympathy/Funeral selection) do world wide same day delivery
You muppets, cars are exactly where LEDs play out their advantages best!
They last virtually forever, consume little electricity, emit barely any heat and allow for much more compact designs. Besides, LEDs aren't necessarily brighter or colder.
My 5510 suffered a display failure from just dropping it on the kitchen table from no more than 30cm. Had it replaced, never had any issues afterwards.
My 3310 was very good, but not indestructible; my dog ate it.
My 6230i lasted 6 years before it developed the first issue that required soldering, but nothing I couldn't fix myself. It still works like new, though it doesn't look the part.
Current HTC Mozart survived a few drops as well, most of them I was sure would kill it. Few scratches and bruises but could still sell as new on ebay
