    another easy 1-2 for merc. at least ham some competition so it isn't a run away. too bad he isn't fighting with a red car, though.

    after watching the latest formula e race this weekend I've come to the conclusion that formula e appears to be amateur hour. everything thing from the drivers, the race officials, race course, track crew and the announcers. Every race this year has been red flagged due to bush league driving. I don't know if it is the way the courses are designed (extremely tight), the drivers or both, but a lot of the passes are basically drivers barging in to the tight corners and pushing the car along side into the wall. not all, but that seems to be the way to pass in formula e. this inevitably leads to a red flagged race with the race officials scratching their heads for 10+ minutes to figure out the order. it really detracts from the event. when the drivers are actually racing it can be pretty exciting as the cars are all pretty much equal. there has been a different winner in all 6 races thus far.

    yep. I've banned ink jets from our house for this reason but my wife is constantly stuff anyways. inkjets would cost a fortune to run.

    Color Printer Anarchy

    we have a hp and brother soho quality color lasers at home. both came from the side of the road. the hp was nice while it worked but it was clearly designed for home/limit use. the brother is much better built, but it seems to have an annoying flaw where the fuser drum doesn't seem to last too long which is why the previous owner put it out in front of their office. $15 in parts later it was back in operation and seems to do a good job. based on these experiences, all soho printers are pretty much the same and are practically disposable. if you want a nice printer, you unfortunately need to pay for it. at the other end of the spectrum, our office moved and we got a couple of nice shiny xerox machines. they produce nice results but they are easily 10x your budget. probably closer to 20x. before that we had toshibas (garbage) and high end hps. the more expensive hps actually lasted quite a while but are still outside your budget. I say buy whatever you can for $450 and just expect to replace it in a few years.

    not win, apparently. although I find him annoying to listen to, will buxton nailed it with his tweet:

    one more thing, merc's double stacked pitstop was excellent! they nailed that.

    another easy one for merc. the gaps between the teams was pretty astonishing: .5 between merc and ferraria and .5 between ferrari and rb. leclerc got screwed again. poor kid. ferrari needs has to get better on strategy otherwise the wcc is already over.

    can you watch those streams on a tv through a roku? I don't have a problem paying somebody to watch the races, but it has to be easily watched on my tvs.

    So they still have problems with the live broadcasts? ridiculous!

    How is everyone watching the races if you don't have a pay tv service? I almost bought the annual f1 tv pro pass but I'm still mad they don't have apps for streaming devices (i.e. roku). It is called f1 TV not f1 browser. I signed up for sling tv's blue package for $15/month for the first 3 months and used it for the first time for yesterday's race. Sling give you access to espn's roku app which is what I actually watched the race on. So far it has worked well except you can't pause live events. It was a lot better than trying to find it on youtube.

    +1! That was a great race, unless you are leclerc. Ham and merc lucked in that 1 -2. And seb still can't keep his car pointed in the right direction! I think they should have kept kimi and dropped seb.

    the last formula e race has finally been posted to youtube. I guess there was a 1 week blackout of something in the us. it was a pretty entertaining race.
