Thanks Denis and Bueller, turned on the PC this morning and guess what? Discord happily updated and is now running again!!

No idea what I did. Yesterday I was a computer moron but now it appears that I'm obviously a computer genius, but the secret of Discord will remain a mystery forever.
Great news Rob , you are a computer genius  :).

Well, it appears my BSOD issues have nothing to do with my new computer, but my G25.  That's typical, I mention something about still using an old G25 and
then I get a BSOD followed by noticing a burning smell.
I suspect that it was pulling too much current through the USB 3.1 connector and that resulted in the BSOD.

Interestingly I hadn't noticed it playing up, just the smell. I'll pull it apart and see if it's something nice like the brushes needing replacing, if not
then I'll get a new wheel.     
Hope that hasn't caused any problems with the new pc. Does the port still work?

yeah, it all still works fine. I did scare the crap out of me a bit especially as it's a new cpu/ram/mobo/nvme ssd.
I'll have a look at the wheel this weekend. I'd like to keep it going somehow as I occasionally do a bit of retrogaming on old pc's and the
G25 will work on everything from Win98 up to Win10.
I now have 2 spare G25 wheels one of which you can have, I live in Coffs Harbour.

The Sprite (race version) in this list of mods could be interesting, I will test later today. 8)

These are good. For a test track may I suggest Oulton Park Fosters :) :) :) :)

You need 900deg of steering input for subtle corrections ;) , now to find something to race them against ;D.
added a direct link to this great mod.

I am in the process of selling my house and there is a big chance I wont make it tonight,  the server is ready for race 1 and I have sent Wally a link to the configs to race 2 if he would be so kind to restart the server if I don't make it.
I hope to make it for race 2 at least, but not sure.
Hope all goes well Phil and maybe see you tonight.

Can I have the Facetti please? Will See if it likes corners unlike that horrid M1 from last week.

Hopefully I'll have my new Ryzen 2600 based computer up and running properly by Thursday night.
I'm going to shove Assetto Corsa on the new M2 NVME drive I have bought, should load a lot quicker on that.
Same Video card as before, GTX1070, no need to upgrade that. First cpu/mobo upgrade since 2010.
I will be interested to see the performance gains ,as I also have been running a 1st gen i7 860 oced to 3.9 gig with a 1080TI. Great to see a PC build last so long.

Thanks Phil and Denis.

STEAM confirmed that my a/c had been hacked!

By the time I got up this morning it had been fixed. I just needed to jump through several hoops to confirm. All in all very pleased with their service.

A timely reminder that nothing on the internet is ever totally secure and vigilance is always needed.
Great news Rob :) :)

I mentioned the other night that my password needed to be reset almost daily. Then tonight STEAM notified me that a new phone number had been added to my Account. Definitely not mine, so sounded a bit suss.

Tried to delete new phone # from Account and now I have to submit a whole lot of info to prove its my account before they will look at it. No big deal as I only have AC and Project Cars.
Very annoying Rob, this has prompted me to add a phone number to my account, something until now I did not think was needed. I had my Steam account stolen many years ago and I also gave up trying to prove who I was, I always thought your email address would be enough.

Guess I have to take a K3. :-X

We have come this far with the Status Quo, we may as well carry on till the end, otherwise it may feel like a hollow season championship win for Bacchulum.

I think Bacchulum now has this Championship sewn up  :). It may have been helped by the fact that he had the knack to pick the a good car for each circuit, his knowledge of Monza and why he chose a Ferrari for this circuit was very interesting  8). I still had a fun night, but I am finding getting these cars to Turn In a bit annoying ( some peoples main complaint about AC physics). I do feel the Porsche should have been more competitive on some of these tracks :'( maybe at Oesterreichring it may show some promise). Anyway, on to find the best car for Sebring  :).
