  • Calman: Countdown working fine on my end now.  Can you tweak it to run half way into a race, so I have a chance of earning more than 10 points in the GG? lol

  • Wizzo: Countdown working for you now?

  • Ian: Countdown is working for me too

  • Wizzo: Countdown working for me. What seems to be the problem?

  • Wizzo: I'm working on it now Ian, trying to get it up and running for the next race

  • Ian: Wiz or Slugs, have we lost chatroom and who's online ?

  • Calman: Mr Happy over here Wizzo, so it's all good,  Cheers!
    April 10, 2018, 02:17:21 AM
  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.

  • Calman: Hi Wizzo ... I am trying to understand the system, not change it, so appologise if my attempts to add to the gallery are causing any unessesary stress!
    April 09, 2018, 05:56:12 AM
  • Wizzo: To be honest its a very long time since we had any issues with members photos. I have changed the permissions so that images no longer need admin approval
    April 08, 2018, 03:14:05 PM
  • Calman: Thanks for the info and approval on my 1st photo Wizzo, really appreciate it.  So, who is the best member to contact for photo approval (as I am aware that you mostly appear online over the weekend).
    April 08, 2018, 01:44:45 AM
  • Scott: When I do my GG picks, I get a warning that the website is not secure up on the browser address...using Safari.  Anyone else get anything like that?
    April 07, 2018, 09:34:27 PM
  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.
    April 07, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.

  • Calman: Took a HUGE gamble with my Bahrain Race predications, so let's see how crazy a race it may be!
    April 02, 2018, 11:26:21 PM
  • Calman: Lovely, will have to think about some predictions for Bahrain in the next few days!!
    March 29, 2018, 01:02:51 AM
  • Wizzo: Grid Game countdown all working again. Don't forget your predictions!
    March 28, 2018, 12:11:49 PM
  • Scott: Bahrain countdown appears to be pooched

    It reads like a fan fiction, and there is no link to the official transcript.

    I'm not doubting it, but surely drivers meetings are normally interesting and generally kept private?

  • Actually F1 has been uploading them to their youtube channel.  Here is the meeting in question:

  • But just on the note of seatbelts, did anyone else notice that it seemed to take Ferrari quite a long time to get Seb out of the car after they retired him?  There was an engineer in there up to his shoulders to try to sort it out, but it was certainly a minute or two instead of the seconds it normally takes, especially with crew helping.

  • I saw that, too. Definitely not a good thing in case of emergency.

  • I thought this was going to be about the Grosjeans' upcoming cookbook when I first saw this thread...

    Suffice to say I'm annoyed that the driver briefings are even being broadcast on YouTube in the first place.

  • There's some good stuff on their youtube channel...just wish they would stream the races there.  I like to see the drivers all together to see how they rank each other.  Judging by Lewis on his phone and ignoring the proceedings until he was called on, it sort of reminds me of him last season in the press conferences, and shows he doesn't have much respect for those around him.

    ...just saying'  ;) ;)

    If they're usually this childish, I'd definitely be reading a book (given that every driver is forced to turn up, on pain of being banned from the weekend otherwise). Easier to preserve respect for those round me if I don't have to take that sort of antic into account. If I wanted to be round this sort of behaviour, I'd have volunteered to help out at the primary school down the road.
