iRacing Week 9 – Road America

By | 12th February 2019

Having skipped the last race at Oulton Park, UK, I was back on the virtual racetrack again last week as I continued my iRacing F3 Championship Series at Road America, USA. I have to say, I didn’t get as much practice in during the week as I would have liked as I was distracted with… Read More »

iRacing Widget

By | 30th January 2019

Recently, I was looking around for an iRacing web API so that I could display some info here on my website. I found one written in Java, but it seemed to be mostly broken. So, I decided to code my own using PHP. My first task was to enable the display of the current standings… Read More »

iRacing Week 7 – Interlagos

By | 29th January 2019

The F3 Championship arrived in Brazil this week as we hit the track at Autódromo José Carlos Pace, otherwise known as Interlagos. To be honest, I had quite a bit of trouble with my setup here. I couldn’t seem to get any of my setups from previous tracks to work, even after making various adjustments.… Read More »

iRacing Week 6 – Okayama

By | 21st January 2019

Today was raceday for me. It’s week 6 of the iRacing F3 Championship and we are at Okayama in Japan (virtually, of course). The F3 races are designed to last about 30 minutes, so this one was set for 20 laps of the 2.3 mile circuit. The big news is that I decided to break… Read More »

My iRacing season so far

By | 13th January 2019

I had planned to spend this season of iRacing in Formula Renault 2.0 having spent the last 2 seasons racing the F2000 Skip Barber. However, during the December patch they demoted Formula Renault to a D-Class event and brought in a new C-Class licence car: the Dallara F317 Formula 3. I also got promotion from… Read More »

Fallout 4 VR First Quest Bug

By | 12th January 2019

During the last Steam Winter Sale I decided to purchase Fallout 4 VR. Both it and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR have been on my wishlist for a while. Since I already own the regular version of Skyrim, it was always unlikely that I would fork out another 40 quid (or even 20 quid… Read More »

Some changes coming to iRacing

By | 11th January 2019

Back in May 2018 I began a subscription to iRacing. If you don’t already know, iRacing is one of the best racing simulators around. Note that this is very much a racing simulator rather than your typical arcade style racer, so it’s for people who take their sim-racing seriously and you won’t find any AI… Read More »

Collywobbles.net is back!

By | 9th January 2019

Finally getting around to putting my website back up. I had it hosted at Easily for years, but they ‘upgraded’ their whole site and system during 2018 and it is now completely broken. I had my email go down twice for several weeks during the year and I have never been able to log into… Read More »

MAME Cabinet Diary #27

By | 6th August 2006

I finally finished my MAME cabinet in summer 2005; two and a half years in total! Actually, it was great fun building it and I would recommend anyone who enjoys MAME to have a go! It really does enhance the arcade experience. To sum up the final construction: I bought a nice quality MAME logo… Read More »
