I'm seeing a lot of people saying "I know nothing of these vroom cars" so if you guys are interested in learning a bit more about the rules and tech I thought I'd throw up a list of videos which explain some of it.

Note: I've shamelessly stolen all of these from Reddit.

Formula 1 Explained

What is "Car Setup"?

Know what all of the flags mean

Braking

Wet Tyres

Tyre Regulations

KERS and DRS

Downforce

Oversteer and Understeer

Car Data

Aerodynamics

Driving Styles

What the hell is a double diffuser?

More about Tyres but explained by current driver Nico Rosberg

Nico Rosberg is practically lying down in his car

The Complex Steering Wheels

A summary of how the 2014 engines and ERS system are suspected to work

Ground Effects - A very interesting video on the basic aerodynamic principals of F1 cars as explained by former Williams and Ferrari design engineer Enrique Scalabron.

The intro should just be the sound of the new F1 engines screaming along at 14k rpm.

Here is Renault's

Maybe we do three games in one video with cameras and a set.

Artemis Bridge Simulator!

Great things, ya'll.

Oh fuck yes.

First off I really hope nobody finds this offensive to the situation at hand. It is not my intention at all, but the thought of the crew doing this does fill my heart with a sort of satirical happiness.

I've been going back and forth through this forum for the past 30 minutes looking for a place to post this, or wondering if I should post it at all. But after hearing of Ryan's passing and first wondering if it was a joke -> no it's real -> holy shit -> I feel awful for everyone. I started to think back to other celebrity deaths and how it affected those they worked with. I then remembered something Jeremy Clarkson (from Top Gear) said around the time one of their co-presenters almost died in a car crash, and while it didn't totally nullify the grief I felt, nor I'm sure the grief felt by those close to Ryan feel it did make me smile a bit. I'll leave the clip below:

Jeremy Clarkson on the death of a Top Gear presenter

I'm not saying Ryan can be (or should be replaced). Nor am I saying that his passing should be treated quite so flippantly, but I do think that sort of humour would be the type of thing Ryan would've appreciated, especially the sentiment to carry on. And hopefully it'll make some of you smile like it did to me.

Nothing stops the Giant Bomb.

Again, apologies if anyone thinks this is offensive. I will take it down if it is.

So I've played about 7 hours of dota 2 just strictly in bot matches and I've got a handle on the basics, and I'd like to step it up to the big time. But I'm far too terrified to play against pubs. Maybe some of you fellow duders would like to help me out with understanding some more of the nuance of the game like what constitutes early, mid, late game, team compliments, when to do what and why. and generally help me get to a state where I could play random draft and find one or two heroes I could play with some success.

Just to update with more info,

- flash player version is: 11.6.602.167

- Using an ATI 5770m video card

I'll post my specs when I get home tonight to make sure. But it's definitely not mouse movement. I thought it was as well and flipped my mouse upside down.

It seems to fade in and out whenever there is a graphical update to the bar itself. Either when a new chunk of video is buffered (and the buffered section is added to the seeking bar), or when the seeking bar starts to fill in (while the video is playing). It does it about every 2ish seconds or so. Mouse movement has nothing to do with it.

Specs:

- Windows 7

- Chrome 24.0.1312.57 m

- Watching on my TV in 1080p

Issue:

Everytime I go fullscreen to watch a quick look or something and move the mouse off to the side, the control bar on the video player fades out and then fades back in whenever the "timebar" updates a new tick. I think it only happens with "progressive" and "HD" are on.

Alex's Diamond in the Rough. Either a write up or video of games that were not big critical or financial success but that you think deserve their time in the spotlight. Kind of a "Games you love that no one's ever heard of"
