Alternative Search Engine.

The search engine that you can access at http://www.wisenut.com/ is different to all the others in that it is maintained and created by ordinary people that donate some of the free time when their computers would be idling to searching the web for site.

If you wanted you can join them and put your machine to use when you are not using it yourself. Give it a go!

Trucks on the Ovals

Thanks to Dave Smith we can see what exciting racing the Trucks provide.


Exciting trucks at Hednesford.

I'm going to try to get to a meeting before too long.

Clean your Registry

Its always a good idea to clean your machines registry every now and then. This will help prevent your computer from slowing down. You can find a free program that will do this for you at http://www.download.com/TweakNow-RegCleaner/3000-2094_4-10262639.html

Hope that this proves useful.

Get rid of Adware

There are a number of free programs that will remove Adware from your computer. One of the best is Spybot Search and Destroy. You can download it at http://spybot.safer-networking.de/en/spybotsd/index.html It's possible to frequently update the data files of Spybot program so you should be able to remove the latest pesky adware.

Adware can slow your machine and send details of your web browsing habits to the owners of the adware.

Look at the contents of your mail box.

If you want to have a look what's in your mail box before you down load it all then "Eprompter" is a great prgram for the job. You can download it FREE at http://www.eprompter.com/

It will let you look at the contents of several pop3 mail boxes and the program is quite easy to set up.

BriSCA F2, great racing.


A real entertainer, Mick Sworder Posted by Hello

BriSCA F2 provides, in my opinion, some the closest and entertaining racing on the UK ovals. Even though the present day commentators seem reluctant to promote the characters of this sport, people like Mick Sworder, pictured above, still shine through and provide fantastic entertainment.

Get along to a track near you to see the F2's.

Cheap or FREE phone calls.

For a month or two I have been using Skype which is a phone service that works via your internet connection.

You can download Skype at http://www.skype.com/ It makes all phone calls made via the computer either cheap or free. Give it a try you will only save money.

Another way of getting very cheap calls can be found at http://www.1899.com/

Let me know if you find either of them of any use, I certainly do.

A first test!

This is a test of the blog. It's the intention to use this blog for all sorts of non Oval RAcing items and even a few racing items.
