Kozi and Schumacher

July 29th, 2009 No comments

We did pretty poorly at the Kozi quiz. 4th place with 55 points.

The other big news today is that Schumacher is being evaluated to see if he is fit enough to replace Massa. I am hoping he is, and that he ruffles Kimi Raikkonens feathers a bit. Kimi is a driver that has never (to me at least) excelled in an under performing car. When it is good, he is good. When it is bad, he is worse.

I sticked it back from the Kozi to Mum and Dad’s. It was 0.26mile (0.42km), and did not take too long. My hands did not hurt more than normal, and my leg was fine. Roll on Monday 24th August.

After a couple of exciting laps at the start of the race, the Hungarian GP turned into the normal procession. The highlights being Alonso’s wheel coming off, and that was about it really. It was a good win for Hamilton, and shows that McLaren are getting to grips with the car. Brawn will need to pull something out soon to protect Button’s lead in the Championship, as Webber is now the danger man. Jaime Alguersuari did well, and finished his first race ahead of his teammate, and did not make any mistakes.

Good Luck Massa

July 25th, 2009 No comments

The qualifying for the GP was punctuated with a stark reminder as to how fragile the drivers really are. A piece of Ruben Barichello’s car fell off, and in a bizarre accident, it hit Fellipe Massa’s helmet.

Windows 7

July 24th, 2009 No comments

I got some memory for my laptop this week, and downloaded the Release Candidate for Windows 7. I installed the memory this afternoon, and it all works well. Except that 32 bit versions of OSes cannot address the full 4GB. It has to address memory for the graphics card out of 4GB, as that is the 32bit limit. The version of Windows 7 I have downloaded is the 64bit version. That can address 4GB with no problem.

Another GP is almost upon us

July 23rd, 2009 No comments

Friday tomorrow, and this time it is the Hungarian GP. Usually, this is one of the more difficult circuits to pass on. We will have to see how the changes have improved this years cars…

I was back late from work as Alan needed to catch up on some hours due to a Dentist visit. I did not get back until just after 7:00pm. I did manage to get a 300m walk in though. This time, I went the other way round, which has a longer hill. My hands were not aching so much afterwards, so that means that I am getting used to it, or I am putting less weight on my hands, and therefore, more weight on my leg.

We are the Champions!!

July 22nd, 2009 No comments

Well, after a long time, we finally won the Kozi bar quiz. We beat the “Shiraz Sisters” by 2 points. They had brought in 2 extra people to be on their team. We did not win the Snowball of £140. That was decided by a game of Bingo. We did however, win £41 between 5 of us (Gina, Danny, Neil, Brian and myself). Plus we won a round of drinks. Not bad for a £1 entry fee per person. Of course, we will now have to win a few more times to show that it was not just a flash in the pan…

On the way home in torrential rain, I got a text from Gina saying that there was a BBQ at the field, and that Mum was picking me up at 6pm. I replied that it was raining abit, and she replied that it wasn’t at the field.

2 months since the Surgery

July 20th, 2009 No comments

When I got back tonight, I took off my rucksack, and then went for the 300m walk again. I did it in 6 minutes the same as yesterday. When I got back again, I read a letter that was addressed to me from the NHS. It was my new appointment for the fracture clinic. It is on Monday 24th August at 2:55pm. So now, it is only 5 weeks to go!!

The Apartment Revisited

July 18th, 2009 1 comment

I went to my apartment today. Dad dropped me off, and I climbed the 3 flights of stairs to the door. I know that my recovery is going well as I did not feel too bad when I reached the top. I think my sticking skills are much better now as well, as it has been 5 weeks since I last went there.
