    Free Speech

    Of course the UK has protections on free speech. No country on Earth that I am aware of has 100% unrestrained free speech. Of course each nation has its own views and laws about where lines should be drawn in relation to free speech. Around the issues of oppressive and hateful speech. It may...

    PC Iso Box - Cool and Exhausted

    Yes that's much tidier. Great work.

    Free Speech

    UK has laws governing "hate speech" so police are right to follow up accordingly. From Wikipedia: In England and Wales and Scotland, the Public Order Act 1986 prohibits, by its Part 3, expressions of racial hatred, which is defined as hatred against a group of persons by reason of the group's...

    Britain - The Official Thread

    GB News has been a disaster so far and it's been a joy to see it fail. Thing is - will it fail completely or will it survive?

    PC Iso Box - Cool and Exhausted

    That's a pretty cool! concept and I really like the acrylic box. My only criticism is the ducting - compared to the box it looks less professional. Have you thought about using hard ducting rather than that flexible stuff? Just showing the above as an illustration - rectangular cross section...

    I think GT7 will have the SAME graphics as GT Sport. Not a bad thing.

    PS4 Pro runs around 1800P @ 60fps upscaled to 4K.

    Has PS5 been hacked for homebrew yet?

    Britain - The Official Thread

    What is it about football that attracts such significant numbers of racist and violent thugs in so many nations that play the game? Who do the these people follow football as opposed to say rugby or cricket?

    Monitors:

    A few questions so that people will be able to help you out: What's your budget? Is this display just for sim racing - will it be used in a sim-rig, or will this be sat on a desk and be used more broadly? What will be your viewing distance to this display when you are racing? What is the rough...

    Silverstone was lucky enough to have the British Grand Prix become a test venue for the "Events Research Programme" along with about 20 other events. The first one was the FA Cup Final in April and the final one is Grange Opera Festival in Northington in late July.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus Discussion Thread (see OP for useful links)

    With regards to viruses adapting to vaccines - it's a complex area but a somewhat oversimplified truth would be to say that viruses don't typically adapt to vaccines. There is a common misconception that they do - probably based around the well understood concept of bacteria developing...

    Free Speech

    Probably not worried about it because it is unenforceable claptrap. The legislation still needs to go though - it is laughable.

    COVID-19/Coronavirus Discussion Thread (see OP for useful links)

    What I'd like is for government to be upfront about what the "acceptable" level is for hospitalisations and deaths from Covid. We will never be at zero Covid, so there has to be a number that society will tolerate and allow society to return to normal. In the UK for example we tolerate 27,000+...

    The rise in cases does not seem to be tracking with any serious (yet) rise in deaths and hospitalisation - a sign that vaccination and natural immunity is working - most of the UKs vulnerable population have had both doses of a vaccine. 7 kids in my son's school bubble have now tested positive...

    New Le Mans 24h game soon?

    Given that this year iRacing could not even host a 24hr race at Le Mans on a track that they already have in their game, it does not look good for the future of this track in upcoming games.

    Well both my children back home isolating again for the 2nd time in a month (3rd time in total for my son) due to a Covid case in their school bubbles. The isolation rules for children in England (similar in Scotland, Wales and NI as well) are unsustainable. I really hope that come September...

    Fanatec CSL DD Now Available to Pre-Order; New ClubSport Steering Wheel Formula V2.5 Revealed

    On PC - yes. Just plug your Thrustmaster pedals into your PC via USB (assuming you have the adaptor). Not sure what exact pedal set you have but you may need to install drivers so head over to their website for drivers etc.

    Transgender Thread.

    Indeed. However, it's those rules that form part of the controversy as there is far from a consensus within the sport that the rules are fair for females.
