Had a good race, and a couple of unfortunate ones.
The first race was a good battle with Danowat, a couple of times I got level but had to pull in behind again. I thought I was destined to follow him all the way, then I finally made it past.
The 2nd race was not so good start for me. There was lots of nudging and pushing, I was caught off line for every corner which meant I lost another place on the exit. I finally messed up the chicane which spun me round. I limped back to the pits to repair damaged suspension and resumed from last.
The 3rd race was going well; I was 2nd but being caught by 3rd. Then the lights flickered in my room as though the power had been switched. Luckily my PC stayed on, but my router rebooted - disconnection grr
I've seen Active Webcam which seems decent. Multiple webcams can detect motion, record jpg or movie, make a sound.
The captured files can be uploaded to ftp, or connect remotely with another copy of the program, or it hosts a webpage with the camera.
(seems their site is down at the moment, you can try the software from the usual download places)
Auto clutch and throttle blip are the only assistance available
Time trials are held on different servers from races. Because the races for a particular series are held only every 2 hours, this tends to group everyone to turn up at the same time. I would expect it to be busier than during the beta testing, there was plenty of opponents during evenings (UK time). Some of the series are staggered for different start times.
D licence, a safe decent driver should get there after 4 weeks
They're planning a progressive rollout to ensure decent service for those signed up. Sounds like it's by invitation from beta testers only for the first week, then probably those that registered interest, then public.
For the first time it's cost me more than £60 to fill my car up.
I think one of the major roadside assistance companies calculated the average cost of running a car in the UK has gone up 20% in the past year, more for larger vehicles.
The fuel companies make an obcene amount of money, but they say they have to charge what they do because OPEC fixes the price of oil per barrel. They would get in trouble if they sold it cheaper.
The government makes an obcene amount of money from the tax, and would like to take more! When will one of the major parties realise that we drive because we have to, not because we want to (most of the time). Probabaly when they realise there are 30 million drivers who are also voters.
Because this plane was one of the best at giving you the spine tingling WOW!! factor at airshows... for aviation enthusiasts like me, anyway.
Hope they are able to chuck it around the sky like they used to, i.e. like a x10 scale fighter
I saw it's second last display in the early 90's, awesome!
