All I need to say is, GO AND WATCH IT
Just thought I would warn people. XBox Live is up and down like a jack-in-the-box at the moment as Microsoft are doing updates to both Live and the XBox.com site.
The updates went out yesterday in the States, and it looks like they are happening over here in Europe now.
So if you loose Live, then you know why. On a side note, you can't use the Media Centre Extender if your not signed in, bummer! Luckily I got logged in, and am now watching The Unit season 2 episode 5, and have just watched episode 5 of Heroes, which is just getting weirder by the episode!
This is an excellent use of Flash! The 998 GT3-RS site shows the Porsche driven round a track, followed by a chase car, the cool thing however is that you can flick between camera views in realtime, and it shows the G loads on the car at all points around the track.
Brilliant, pop along to see it in action (sounds good too!)
I noticed over on AutoBlog that a video of the 2009 Nissan GT-R at the Nurburgring. (click here for the video)
It looks like the current Mule (the car shown) has some sort of Automatic transmision, is it Nissans version of the VAG DSG/S-Tronic?
Also the chase car is a 911Turbo, so is that showing what market Nissan are aiming for?
Anyhow watch the video, it looks like the GT-R project is coming along nicely.
My top tip today for Vista, is actually an IE7 tip.
We all know that if you have the Glass interface turned on then Windows-Tab will give you a nice funky app switcher.
With a few tabs open try pressing CTRL-Q
You will get a window showing a thumbnail of all the open tabs, you can now either just click the tab you require, or use the cursor keys to navigate around and use Enter to select. You can also click the x at the top right to close tabs you no longer require.
I’ve been moping about at home for most of the day (cold, or as the wife calls it ‘Man Flu’).
I was using the laptop and just happened to bump into a (I think) new shortcut set in Vista.
The Applications in the Quick Launch bar can be launched with the keyboard by just pressing the Windows Key plus the corresponding number (see image). Obviously only the first 9 work, but hey it’s great.
