    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    You got it right. Under red flag, or safety car (not virtual safety car) the gaps will get compressed back to <1 sec. In red flag, they can (will?) unlap cars as well. Say cars 1-7 are on the first lap and 8-17 are down a lap, they brought 8-17 to the front in the pits to unlap so they would...

    self-quoting because uh, dry quali + wet race was good, no?

    Tiger Woods Car Accident - Ongoing News and Commentary

    To be clear: you always press the brake with the left side of your right food and give it gas ("blip the throttle") with the right side of your right foot, at the same time, when downshifting? That's pretty good if so. The simple (but slower) way to downshift going into a corner is to brake in...

    There's also left-foot braking, usually to rotate the car - it's more for rally and/or FWD cars though: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xl7O01h7MU4

    Tiger Woods Car Accident - Ongoing News and Commentary

    I've driven one of these, for about 6 laps at Road Atlanta. It's scary as f*ck, so I don't fault him for that.

    Tiger Woods Car Accident - Ongoing News and Commentary

    This actually isn't a coordination thing (normally), it's a panic/mental thing. Having seen it happen, people are 100% convinced they are braking and they are mashing the gas. There are some sports cars where the pedals are actually really close (for heel-toe as bwB said), and then it can be a...

    Tiger Woods Car Accident - Ongoing News and Commentary

    I drove enough on a race track to get qualified to do a bit of instructing for novice students, I know how to heel-and-toe :) - I've also seen where people panic and hit the gas instead of the brake, even thinking that they are hitting the brake. The statement from the police was which is less...

    Tiger Woods Car Accident - Ongoing News and Commentary

    Why? If the datalogger shows no brake application, then what is the other explanation? NHTSA claimed 16k accidents per year with this kind of mistake. And remember this was a loaner/courtesy vehicle, not his normal car, so its behavior at speed might be unfamiliar to him, or he'd be more...

    Talk to me about NAS stuff

    I have a Synology, it's great. But I don't think it quite meets your plug it in and have it just work test, it's more of a thing for tinkerers / IT-type people, since it's basically a swiss-army-chainsaw gadget. I use it to store and stream my music. And then as a place to backup my laptop and...

    Help buying a computer (Windows)

    FYI: I actually don't think you lose much (or maybe anything) using Windows Defender, from all that I have read. In some cases it performed better than AVG/McAfee/etc is what I remember.

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    For the race, get used to paying attention to deltas / gaps between drivers - it will be displayed on the upper left of the screen, but the commentators won't always call attention to changing gaps. You are looking to see if the delta/gap is rising or falling - it can take many laps to get...

    Finding and Highlighting Data in Google Sheets

    My excel/sheets-fu is terrible, so the only way I can think of is: 1) I assume there is another sheet (?) where each row has an order number and an associated person ("Isaac" in your example) - or maybe it's a column in this sheet you screenshotted? 2) In this tips sheet add another column that...

    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    Do you have any other HDMI-out device (Apple TV, Roku, game console, whatever)? Can you try making that the default startup and see if it does the same thing? (Ideally, plugging it into the same port as you currently have the cable box on, just to narrow down where the issue is.)
