  • Wizzo: GPW will be down from approximately 13:30 tomorrow until the migration to the new server is complete. Once the site is "live" on the new server it could take another 24-48 hours to become accessible to all users.

  • Jericoke: For newcomers to GPWizard, make sure you check out the live chat during the race!  It's the best way to turn a dull race into a great time, and the cherry on top of a great race!  (I won't be able to attend Aussie though)

Thank you very much :D

NASCAR also has a rule that whoever crosses the line first is the winner, regardless of any rules infraction discovered later. Big Bill France didn't want to have a small print article on the back page of the sports section a couple days later announce a new winner.

It seems that F1 is trying to move toward a NASCAR style model. NASCAR has long bragged that "the rules are written in pencil, not ink."

 :good: :good:

Always interested in Alia's take on anything F1...or in her travelogues as well.  :D

Even the FIA can't answer that one, because they don't keep track of all their race briefings and informal notes that also act as regulations but never get formally noted as such. (Why yes, I do have a bee in my bonnet about this one, as someone on a different forum moaned at me earlier this week...)

Alia is the bee in your proverbial bonnet:
(a) lack of proper FIA records, so what are the actual regs?
(b) the fact they change things on the hoof in so many ways after rule sets are fixed for year?
(c) fundamental opposition to this deep dive scheme? -
        [1] because it looks more like a hunting expedition that assumes teams are always up to something, i.e. cheating, but with no real idea there's anything wrong
        [2] it's cunning plan to try to find out just how the different teams work software, as they (the FIA) ain't really got a clue.

............ Or something else entirely?

I'm sure many on here would like your more detailed opinion, Alia, I know I should.

Entertainment, Games & Computers / Budacanta
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on April 04, 2021, 10:32:44 AM »
I've been quiet here for the last few months. The main reason is that I've been coding a game called Budacanta, based on a holiday I took to the 2018 Hungarian Grand Prix.

The demo has now launched at Spring Thing 2021, a festival of interactive fiction games. There's 38 games of various kinds, ranging from visual novels like mine to parser-based adventures like those some of you played in the 1980s (yes, there are still people making games like Zork out there). The demo has the first day of what will eventually be 12 days of holidays.

Feel free to enjoy the games, and if you play Budacanta, please do give me feedback so I can improve.

Can anyone tell me how many regulations there are in F1?
There must be a few million.    >:(

It sounds like an old blender I used to have right before it konked out.
