Road America SCCA Regional race – 08/25/2007 Formula 2000!

August 30, 2007

To get back into a Formula 2000 car after a year and the broken foot which kept me out of this race season, I traveled to Road America over the last weekend to dip my foot (all puns intended) back in the waters of race cars. I definitely drove with my purse in the car overslowing way too much at key points, but still had great times. Having been out of a car for a year and never driving Road America in a F2000 car, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was nothing but fun fun fun. I’ll give the hardcore reset in the next couple days. In the mean time, here’s some video from Race1. Qualified 5 in FC class (15 running) and 6th over all (33 cars running). Finished 4th in class and 5th overall. The video is a battle for 4th , starting around the halfway point in the race.

Enjoy!

DIV innerHTML updates are way cooler for binary actions than dealing with responses.

Skype update 08/17/2007

August 17, 2007

So I drove by Skype and eBay on the way to dinner/Happy Hour tonight.  Absolutely NO parking spots available on the campus AND the cars were parked out on the road all the way to Hamilton.  EVERY person on call apparently is on location for the crisis.  At least eBay takes the billion $ crisis seriously.  I’m personally getting a little pissed about seeing the ‘connecting’ icon spin all day long while they have a good hunk of my cash to make and receive calls.

I have a 2×4 AND a pipe wrench in my toolkit.  I’m more than happy to reboot servers if it’ll help.

Life without Skype sucks!

So the big news today is that Skype went down.  While I don’t heavily use Skype, I do rely on it for daily calls so I don’t burn my cell minutes.  Haven’t used a landline really for a couple years now.  So today, I’ve found myself pissed at the constantly spinning connecting icon and watching it like a puppy dog at a steak dinner!
