A shorty for you tonight. Todd and I talk again about the Wikipedia page, the time change that db just couldn’t get right and more problems with talking on a Saturday afternoon.
Plus Todd drools more over the new Alcantara componets he has picked up for his GP and db throws down a good rant or two. Good times, good times. Plus, you can keep an eye for the John Cooper Garages website to re-open this week.
Next time you are at the Owners Lounge at MINIUSA.com, you will see they are asking for stories from you, the MINI owner, for inclusion in the new miniusa.com. So, give them your story, but we would really like it if you could mention us over at White Roof Radio. Just a little mention would be cool and the ultimate way for you spread the word!
106 is uploading now. If you were one that had trouble downloading it Sunday or Monday, please try again. If you continue to have trouble, please let us know in the comments below.
As has been commented and emailed in (THANKS EVERYONE!), the for sure fix to keep your iPod from crashing with mono podcasts is to turn off the EQ on your iPod. This week Todd encoded the show in stereo, so it shouldn’t crash your iPod even with the EQ turned on.
Thanks to Kerry from Magicmini for sending in the first user generated news music. What did you all think? If you think you can make something that is equally subtly bumpin’, send it over and we’ll give it a test drive!
Don’t forget to check back over to Motoringfile.com for all of the news stories we talked about tonight.
A Canadian in Italy
Robert and his Wife report in from Italy…not driving a MINI!.
That annoying beeping sound? That would be Robert breaking the speed limit laws in Italy. But at least he has a cool GPS! Great to hear Robert being given what for by both his wife AND the GPS unit, affectionately known as Millie.
And Robert might be switching to a scooter? He could start a club with Michael!
We do go a bit longer tonight that we normally do on Monday, but there is a ton of info in tonights show!
Also, WRR has a swag shop in case you haven’t heard! You can check it out here.
Todd thinks he has corrected the crashing 5G iPod problem too. Please let us know if that is not the case!
We have a winner!
This past Saturday, Hubie and the M600 travelled the 1/4 mile at Pomona at 10.8 seconds. It was an awesome run, that I actually have some audio for (hopefully posted here).
It was his best run of the weekend.
The winner who guessed closest without going over is…..

Iâ€™ll say 10.71
So, SBrcm, comment below so we know you saw this and then email us (email@example.com) your particulars so we can get your WRR shirt and Fireballed! Shift Knob.
Gabe’s back! Starting off with a bang and throwing down with the laundry tips, iPod help and that stupid IE7.
Update…After listening to this again, I noticed we said Cooperspeed about a million times. Everyone knows that’s a forum, not a MINI Outfitter. That, of course, would be Cooper Sport. Now available in the US as well as in Canada (at coopersport.ca). All apologies Jason, it wasn’t on purpose!
Plus news of the week from Motoringfile.
Check back tomorrow and listen in as we go through Gabe’s design review of the R56 plus his review the M7 Under Strut System.
DO NOT INSTALL IE 7!
For you windows users…
Less than 24 hours have passed and there is already a vulnerability in the Internet Explorer code base.
This one is nasty too gang. With IE 7 installed, a website can get access to any site you have visited, using your creditials for that site! Like, your bank, your paypal account, your gmail account or your eBay account. If you don’t log off from those sites and hit a site that exploits this vulnerability you will, essentially, be hosed.
