Vista or not?

So, now it's out and it seems like people couldnt care less about "the" release of "the" new OS by M$. Why on earth did they cut the possibilities of Vista that much down, that basically nothing new stays in, well except the c&p from Mac Aero thingy...

On the other hand, LFS can be unlocked on Vista since Patch V, which seems "quite" important, cause everyone will switch to Vista immediately (read: 2 years). While more and more people got already Dual- or even Multi-core CPUs, or at least HT capable CPUs and LFS doesnt support multithreading. So what would you have done in the Developers seat? Work on Vista compatibility or check the possibilities of Multithreading? I think I made my point clear...

Prison Break Day(s)

 Yeah, as you see already, tuesdays is my Prison Break day. The great show airs monday nights in the US, and I cant wait to see it. But what's up with racing on tuesdays? Well there have been some interesting leagues on tuesdays a year or two ago, and I heard that there might be a folow up to the ESCC by the ESL quite soon, which might be on tuesdays again, but the rest is just... nothing special. So I head over to watch some Prison Break and read some forums, having a laugh on a lot of people.

Oh, if you aren't a fan of TV-shows then this video from kraniwani might interest you. He did it as an interims vid until his big project for OCRANA - 10 years movie is finished.

 Usually sundays were cool some months - even years - ago in terms of Racing and LFS. Last practice sessions needed to be done for the Pro Series Race on Monday. But at the moment we have the winterbreak, no season is running and I stopped racing at that high level for quite a while now. So now my sundays are full of personal study stuff, family and a lot of preparation for the upcoming seasons. Yeah, I'm checking stuff too, even if I'm not racing. I will do the penalty stuff for the EAS participants again this year, and besides that our team needs to have some little push for 2007 ;) As usual with games that stay on the market for a looong time.

Oh, about games: Just heard that rFactor wouldnt be supported for free anymore after this last patch 1.250. Understandable, but still a shame. I think that the Racing Sim market isnt fully fed at all by rf and LFS. The minimum goal for evey sim should be, to reach GPL selling numbers and those were in about 600k. Well, we'll see how ISI will try to get some more money out of the crowd with the same old aproach to physics in future releases - although there are some quite cool mods of rF.

Well that's all for now, still learning that blogging stuff, and I think, I'll be able to put some podcast on this week.

Hello World!
Some year(s) after I registered the url and after I got the idea, to start blogging, I finally will take the step and get out into the world and talk about myself, my life and all the other stuff happening around me. Besides that I will post some podcasts on a not regular basis. You might find some interesting stuff on my beloved hobby sim racing, especially on Live For Speed, the way it takes and some little stories straight out of the world of simracing. So I hope, you'll enjoy this and give me chance. Have fun!
