    Formula E

    I'm really looking forward to the 2019 season and I'm thrilled it's all available for free. I just hope they can get out of the habit of saying "usable energy" in every sentence. I do understand that battery management is a major consideration, and I know there's an amount of novelty in having access to the live numbers for every car (as opposed to F1, say, where we don't get to see how much fuel each car has left). But the actual phrase "usable energy" just rubs me up the wrong way somehow. Again to draw the F1 parallel, you don't hear the commentators speculating about how much "usable fuel" a car might have available.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    I can't stand Max. He is, without question, an incredibly fast driver. He's also objectively not a good racer. Horner and co are obviously betting the farm that his racecraft will eventually catch up with his sheer speed. The main reason I don't like him is that I just find him such an insufferable prick. His sense of entitlement is astonishing even for a Formula 1 driver.

    What's hidden in the fade?

    To this day I can't listen to any song featuring a breakdown without automatically saying out loud "What happened? Where are the instruments?"

    What's hidden in the fade?

    There's a good one at the end of "Look At All Those Idiots" by Mr Burns featuring Smithers, from The Simpsons Sing The Blues. The song fades out with the backing singers repeating the chorus. Mr Burns can very faintly be heard grumbling to Smithers "Why are they still playing? They're not still on salary, are they? They're paying for their own coffee!"
  5. I haven't seen this yet (I couldn't make any of the local screenings so I'm waiting for it on TV) but I wouldn't be at all surprised if at least some of the original footage was filmed in stereo to begin with. Stereo photography is basically as old as photography.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    Claire Williams is the guest on this week's Beyond The Grid podcast which was recorded a few days after Mexico. She says they're going to announce their second driver for 2019 "by the end of this season". Who do we think it might be?

    Dave Perry is back...

    That's not even a 90s joke. Spinal Tap was from 1984.

    Gaming things you regret buying...

    I actually really like it. You've got to play it with a DualShock 2 though. You could play it with a GameCube controller but it doesn't feel right because of the eight-way direction gate around the analogue stick. I bought an adapter for a couple of quid on eBay that plugs into a Wiimote and presents the DualShock 2 as a Wii Classic Controller. Swooping around feels much smoother and more comfortable with the perfectly circular joystick surround. I'm still crap at NiGHTS.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    It's not a dig at Hamilton, I like him. I just find it a bit absurd that a presumably non-trivial amount of people will buy one of those watches just because there's a picture of one on the Mercedes F1 team uniforms. I realise all I'm doing is describing the phenomenon of advertising.

    Formula One - 2018 Season

    One of my favourite ridiculous things about this whole inherently-ridiculous sport is that Hamilton's left glove has a picture of an expensive wristwatch printed on it.

    Top Gear - Series 24

    Did anyone watch Carnage on Sky? Freddie was all right on that. No real feelings either way about Paddy McGuinness as I don't think I've ever watched anything he's done. Shame about Rory, I quite like him.

    AMIGArama Podcast Episode 55: Smash TV

    At home we had an Amstrad CPC from 1986 onwards. So when it comes to a lot of the multiplatform games, I would have played them on the Amstrad. Revisiting the superior Amiga versions nowadays is a bit like getting a free HD remaster for my childhood memories. Similarly, but at the other end of the Amiga cycle, we got a DOS PC in 1994. So I've played a fair few of the later Amiga games (eg Enemy Unknown) on the PC instead of the Amiga.

    AMIGArama Podcast Episode 55: Smash TV

    I'm really pleased today because after listening through them all in order, I've finally caught up to the latest Amigarama (not counting the early release for Patreons). I never actually had an Amiga myself, but a couple of my best friends did when I was at school, so I do have fond memories of a lot of these games. A few of them (eg SWOS, Speedball 2, Desert Strike) I even still play to this day, either via UAE or on other formats. I've definitely learned about a good few games that I'd like to check out. Now if I only actually had time to play games... Gave you a five-star rating on iTunes. Keep up the good work.

    Fun fact - Guitar Hero assumes that you will hit the next note if you got the last one, so it starts to play the sound anyway. Then when you do miss one, that's when it cuts off the sound and plays the *chunk* missed-note noise. It's not AI, obviously, but it's quite a clever solution.
