Well, it was 12 months ago today that I had my little incident. How things have changed. Read more…

Crutchless Ambulation

September 22nd, 2009 No comments

As a further update, I have been mooching about without the aid of my crutch for a week now. I have taken to leaving one in the back of my car, and the other is near the front door at my parent’s.

I am still limping a fair bit as my knee is not quite right. Last Friday, I walked to the pub in record time (10 minutes), and when I got there, a friend of Danny’s who I have met before asked about my leg. I told him about my knee, and before I could say anything, he was feeling my thigh and knee. He proclaimed that it was some ligament / tendon type thing. It turns out he is a chiropractor, and he was used to feeling up people, although, I doubt I looked like the happiest of customers. I needed a couple of half shandies to take away the mental anguish. On a less homoerotic note, I am now walking around like John Wayne. Well, it’s either that or I am walking around like a serial self defecator. I prefer the former.

2 1/2 days of work before a well earned break (forgive the pun).

Italian GP + Update

September 12th, 2009 1 comment

I have added another of my weight charts to show the relative qualifying performances of the F1 drivers for tomorrows race. From the looks of the weights, Hamilton, Sutil and Raikkonen have all gone for the glory of Pole Position. While that might be good for Saturday, when you look at the weights of the other drivers, you can see that only these 3 will be on 2 stop strategies.

I have not posted for a few days due to my impending visit to the Fracture Clinic. I arrived there at 2:30pm (thanks Dad), and was told to go and wait outside X-Ray. Read more…

I am still here.

Since my last posting, not much has happened.

Of importance to me is of course that Schumacher has been confirmed for Ferrari to replace Massa. Rumour has it that there is already a beach towel on the top step of the Valencia podium…

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.

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.

Not too late up this morning. Breakfast, sudoku, exercises as per normal. I sat and checked the internet (it is still there), and sorted out some paperwork.
