  • Wizzo: Hi Greg, you're better off telling us about your concept in a written post on the forum for all to see. I'm sure you'll get a few opinions.

  • Greg_82: Hello, anyone online to discuss?
    November 06, 2017, 05:51:35 PM
  • Greg_82: the best would be to go on skype to discuss the concept, would that be possible with some of you guys?
    November 06, 2017, 12:31:49 PM
  • Greg_82: I'm new and I would like to know if some of you would have some time to spend with me because I'm launching a new concept about F1 and I would like to have your idea

  • Scott: No hassle, I just thought with all the merry go round, it might be easier to simply use a couple generic slots.  But anyhow, that's great Dare.

  • Dare: Hartley and Gasly have been added to GG

  • Scott: Paul
    October 24, 2017, 02:36:11 PM
  • Scott: I would say we use Hartly as Jenson Button on the GG and Gasly as Paur Di Resta...any nay's?
    October 24, 2017, 02:36:03 PM
  • Scott: For example we would need to add Gasly and Hartley for Mexico
    October 24, 2017, 02:34:54 PM
  • Scott: We could add in 'Driver 1' and 'Driver 2' and then make announcements in Shoutbox to tell people which driver sub is which (in the off chance that there are two).
    October 22, 2017, 02:15:55 PM
  • Scott: Not that I think he would actually make top 8
    October 22, 2017, 02:07:30 PM
  • Scott: I wonder if we shouldn't have one or two generic driver slots for substitutions, like Hartley
    October 22, 2017, 02:07:02 PM
  • ChrisCurtis: Well that’s an interesting start!
    September 17, 2017, 01:05:06 PM
  • Wizzo: Sorry guys I won't be around for the race chat as I will be watching the race on catch up
    September 17, 2017, 10:58:19 AM
  • Scott: Only around for lap 1-2 and then have to run today, but I'll duck into chat for the first few minutes

  • cosworth151: Does Alonso's 35 place grid penalty mean that he'll be starting from Parabolica?
    September 02, 2017, 10:09:21 PM
  • Jericoke: Wizzo, my strategy was that everyone else would forget so my 9 points would vault me into the mid pack.  Thanks for ruining that!

  • Yesterday, 26 September, they were putting up Christmas merchandise displays at my local Menards DIY store. It's right beside the Halloween stuff.   :DntKnw:

  • Way way way too early, I can remember when I was a kid my Dad brought the Christmas tree home on Christmas Eve.

  • Yesterday, I heard my first Christmas song in a shop for the year. Which is bad enough... ...but the song was new! What artist/promoter thought early October was a good time to release a new Christmas song?

    (I don't know the artist or song title, but it was cringeworthy in a "adult woman pretending to sing like an off-key 7-year-old, and getting drowned out by over-engineered piano and synthetic cowbell" sense).

    I'll put up my little tree in mid-December. My parents will likely stick to the tradition of not decorating their festive branches until Dad comes home for Christmas. This year, they'll be unusually early because they may start as early as tea-time on December 22nd!  (Last year, we started at 6:58 pm on Christmas Eve due to a broken something-or-other requiring Dad to go back to work for a couple of hours, just as we were about to do the first attempt to decorate).

    Sears Canada might not exist by Christmas, if they can't sell the trees now, they'll never get to sell them

    1) Wow, that surprises me - I thought they were pretty sound as a company :(

    2) Is Sears USA in the same boat?

  • Nearly every big traditional department store is on the verge of bankruptcy, Sears, Penneys, Macy's. Welcome to the world of Amazon. Why drive all the way to the Mall when a couple of clicks brings it to your door and usually cheaper.

  • Sears, and its companion K-Mart, are on the ropes. They've been closing stores all over the place. Sears even sold off its famous Craftsman Tools brand. Many business analysts expect them to go completely under soon.

  • I never buy online, apart from the fact that I like to physically see what I'm buying I'm not happy having my bank details floating about the ether.
