"Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is a nine-part Pink Floyd composition written by David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Rick Wright. It appeared on Pink Floyd's 1975 album Wish You Were Here.

The song was conceived and written as a tribute and remembrance to their former band member Syd Barrett, a founding member of Pink Floyd.

Barrett was ousted from the band by the other members in 1968 due to his drug use and (partly-related) troubled mental health, which had affected his ability to integrate with the rest of the band and perform and create as a musician. He was replaced by David Gilmour, Barrett's former school friend who had initially been brought in as second guitar. The remaining band members felt guilty for removing him, but they viewed it as necessary, admiring Barrett's creativity and being concerned about his severe mental decline.

Barrett incident

Syd Barrett, visiting Abbey Road Studios on 5 June 1975

One day during recording, Barrett (now heavyset, with a completely shaved head and eyebrows) wandered into the studio (although Mason has since stated that he is not entirely certain whether "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" was the particular work being recorded when Barrett was there). Because of his drastically changed appearance, the band did not recognize him for some time. When they eventually determined the withdrawn man in the corner was Barrett, Roger Waters became so distressed about Barrett's appearance he was reduced to tears.[6] Someone asked to play the suite again for Barrett and he said a second playback was not needed when they had just heard it. When asked what he thought of the song, Barrett said it sounded a "bit old".

Anyone else getting this ? 
I know we are getting the server for another 3 years and AC will always be the main game, but sometimes occasionally it would be cool to do a different game on Thursdays or another night, even if its just a few people, to keep everything fresh as sometime after so long AC does become a little stale ?

Anyway I think I will get (as long as I can confim that it supports triples staright away    ;D  ) I think that the first Automobilista feels better than AC to drive,  I get bored with single player mode so don't play it enough

Yes thanks a lot, muchly appreciated,  I have already Received $50 from AB and I know I said I will worry about after the F1 but I will reserve the instance and pay for it this evening after work as I don't like holding onto other peoples money :)

A small variety of setups to choose from, more will come.

xs-xx = springs
sx-xx = soft
mx-xx = medium
hx-xx = hard

xx-xa = aero
xx-lx = low
xx-hx = high

I may add xx-xx-xr for anti-roll bars, if I get that far down the rabbit hole, but I'll work on the springs of the low DF first.

This is an awesome

Probably my paypal would be best.  krahl8 at gmaildotcom

The sever runs on march 20 and I think I am going to get a 3 year one this time around as its way cheaper, like $280 odd for 3 years and $120 odd for 1 year.

I think Roo said he was willing to pay something again ( he has paid the full amount last few years and I pay the monthly ongoing cost of $8 a month or so)
and Jarmel have also said they would like to help out, so It would probably be best to work out what you all wanted to pay before sending anything as not to overpay  ;D
