My computer problems have finally been analyzed:

  • The fan to my PSU is fucked up so I need to replace the PSU.
  • My RAM is fucked up so I need a new one.
  • My OS and registry is also fucked up so I’m going to need a clean install.
  • My hard drive is ancient by computer standards and needs to be upgraded so it will stop fucking things up.

In other words basically everything is wrong with my computer.

Okay so just a few days ago (thursday I think) I was looking up if FE was airing in Sweden and there was no. information. whatsoever. On FE’s website it said the company that air F1 had the rights to it, but I saw this post on their facebook page that was just a week old that "unfortunately we do not have the rights to FE and will not air it." I checked all the TV guides and there were no mentions anywhere of FE at all.

So I shrugged and was like “oh okay fuck you I guess I’ll have to watch a crappy stream on my tiny computer instead of on a proper television”, and then I did that.

But now when I went on the facebook page again this evening I found out that they DID buy the rights and they DID in fact air the race on TV?? When there wasn’t a trace anywhere of it at all as late as thursday??

Terrible advertisement for a new racing series. I’m very disappointed.

(The fact that my TV is broken and that I would’ve had to watch a stream either way IS NOT RELEVANT THAT’S NOT WHAT I’M COMPLAINING ABOUT!!! I’m excited about FE and I want people to watch and support it and it should’ve been advertised properly.)

It’s been odd, the website advertised ITV4 as showing all the sessions but they only did race and race build up. The only company I found that was airing sessions from FP2 onwards was Star Sports 4 (IND) (and the only stream of that I could find was one with a weak master signal so when I say I watched quali, I mean I squinted at the glitchiest stream and inferred what was happening from live timing)

Yeah, I was disappointed that a lot of channels discarded airing qualifying sessions. I don’t watch practice sessions, but if you wanted to watch those there were not a lot of options. It’s the first season though, so I understand TV companies are reserved when it comes to how much they will air when they do not know how many people are going to watch it and if it’s worth including in their air schedule. I don’t agree with it, but I understand it. There’s also noticeably been a few hiccups when it comes to technology, so maybe they still need a bit of time to get everything running smoothly and analyze the areas that need improvement.

I do believe electricity driven vehicles is in our future, and I think FE is a great way to develop and showcase new technology and hopefully contribute to changing the prejudice a lot of narrow minded racing fans have towards electric cars - It feels important that a series like this gets the exposure it deserves and needs. I think this early in the sport’s history it is also a great time to get involved and influence the way it will continue to develop in all aspects of the series. It’s kind of freeing that it doesn’t have the kind of history and tradition that F1 has, which I think is limited a lot by expectations from the past that in a way halts the progressive sport it could and should be.

I would do my live blogging on twitter but sometimes I like to use 2 characters and sometimes I want to use 5000 characters and I don’t like it when someone tells me what I can and can’t do.

For future reference, it’s http://livetiming.alkamelsystems.com/fiaformulae/ idek how I found it, I think someone tweeted it

That’s great! I’ll bookmark it in case they haven’t geared up their website to properly handle all the traffic they get. It looks like the link is the official live timing provider as well, which is good. They probably stream that exact thing to the FE website.

The Formula E website during the race: “Shit, people actually care about electric cars. I can’t handle the pressure.” *breaks down*

He’s not fluent as far as I know, but he knows quite a lot of words and sentences :) I’m sure there’s lots of evidence on Youtube of him speaking Finnish.

What I know is that he understands Finnish pretty well so you can’t talk shit about him infront of his nose, and speaks it well enough to form sentences that make sense. His pronounciation is really good too, so I suppose he’s proficient.

fadetoblaqk ^^^ There you go, the Finns know their shit.

Someone just pointed out to me that Nicolas Prost and Nick Heidfeld will be sharing a car for the WEC 6 Hours of COTA next weekend.
