I wonder if anyone got to the bottom of why Game had those financial problems a few years back?

Possibly the reddest sunset I've ever seen. I've tweaked the photo to look what it actually looked like, it was far too washed out straight off my phone camera.

Sounds legit.

Seen to remember Ralf Schumacher having 2 concussions in close succession. Maybe the US GP when only 6 cars raced.

That was 03 at Monza and the USGP. The really bad one was the following year when he backed into the wall on the final turn of the USGP. 78g deceleration resulted in another concussion and 2 cracked vertebrae!

I'm looking for a bag that will be able to hold my D5300, a couple of lenses and my Manfrotto 190XB tripod. The Manfrotto Agile Slings have caught my eye but I'm not sure whether they'll be able to take my tripod.

Does anyone have first hand experience of this combo (long shot I know).

I'd rather not have to take my tripod to the shopping centre (Mall for US cousins).

As a disclaimer: I have not used the bag you mentioned.
Having said that, I have used (from a professional as well as amateur perspective) pretty much every kind of bag and support system out there. The absolute best solution for amateurs (and, depending on the scope, professionals as well) is a sling.
I'm using the one described here:

And let me tell you, it is well worth the very modest investment.

Fast and friendly service.

First visit, a little confused as entry was free but had to queue for someone to ask if I wanted to donate any money. This caused a delay getting in and also a little guilt trip on the way in. Food was nice (if a little expensive).

I've never had a bad experience at the Tyneside Cinema. It has to be the most comfortable cinema around with a great coffee bar to boot.

The veg was tasteless, however the beef and turkey was well cooked. Quite possibly our last visit to a Toby. Avoid the breakfast if possible.

Fantastic food, excellent service. We'll be back (not as often as we like as we live in Newcastle).

A nice quiet family oriented site for camping (or Glamping as my son corrects me). Electricity is charged on a meter that you settle with at the end of your stay, it wasn't expensive. My only little gripe is that there are 5 electrical items in each hut (kettle, microwave, heater, refrigerator and light) and only 2 sockets. This means you can't leave your fridge plugged in if you want to make tea with the light on. The family that run the site were very friendly, I'd definitely go back.
