To treat a child who is choking:

Give up to five back blows
Hit them firmly between the shoulder blades
Give up to five abdominal thrusts
Pull inwards and upwards

Call the emergency services if the object has not dislodged after three cycles of five back blows and five abdominal thrusts.

Is this type of racing only popular in the Czech Republic?

I couldn't find any videos of such stage rally races from other countries. It looks like it is a real blast. While most cars shown there are rather high-end Xrays, it seems like this can compensate one of the biggest gripes in present day racing that it is mostly about having the best brushless system.

The fantastic open-source transport-simulation game took a step toward Steam. If you have an account there, I'd be nice if you would give it a vote.

The game still will be FOSS, Steam is only another way of distribution, and it will be for free there.

Simutrans on Steam Greenlight

Simutrans plans the move to Steam, as a free game. The distribution platform might help new players to get to know the game, and those who already play the game and also use steam an easier way to keep Simutrans up to date. If you don't use Steam, don't worry, all other ways of distribution, source code, binaries,
Windows-installer, and inclusion in many Linux installers will still be available.

Steam is a large, comercial game distribution platform, that means they sell games online, provide downloads that are started from within Steam. Steam is avaible for Windows, Mac-OS, and Linux (SteamOS). Greenlight is Steam's procedure to get games to the platform that do not have a large publisher behind them. I.e, indie-developers or open source. Steam users can vote for games to pass Greenlight, and if you have a Steam account, we should be very happy if you did so. +Hayden Read is taking care of getting Simutrans on Steam.

As first thing this morning, immediately after I found my towel, I tried to persuade my computer to make tea. It did not work as intended. (I think I ought have piped the randomness into the water.) #towelday

In the sense of the old friendly competition between OpenTTD and Simutrans, I thought it might be of interest to you that Simutrans plans the move to Steam.

We went to the Greenlight process, and were approved within a fortnight. That means, the signals are on proceed from the side of Steam. The game will not be up immediately though. There is the task to make the game fit for a less forgiving audience. In particular this means writing proper game guides and documentation.
 
Simutrans Greenlit!

Simutrans has succeeded in the Greenlight process on Steam. While nothing is baring us from publishing there, a lot of work has still to be done before the game is ready.

hmm.... tried to give it a try...
So, from the fresh eye dummy to long beard hackers:

1) guys, you definitely would have that SIMPLE thing as "how to install pakset".
Okay, I downloaded the exe, two paksets - and went to faraway village with no internet. There I would be kind of lost. Okay, with trial and error I would make it finally, but still....
Yes, it is simple - but actually there are damn lot of simple ways to try.

I think that
1.1) pakset downloader should ask if there are ready pakset files, rather than instantly trying to go online. Afterall that is maybe what already have   few downloaded zips.
1.2) main game zip should have in its readme (or maybe separate paksets.txt) - just few lines about unzipping and that the content should be in pakXXX.YYY subfolder inside main game folder.
1.3) the www paksets download page should have "how to install them" as well
Otherwise the person gets lost and would have to google what should be no-brainer.
Especially for Steamers :-) ----
2. Few seconds after launch ( was not even playing, just checking what I've got there ) I had a problem with Russian translation: a single dialog had two buttons with equal caption. I guess they both could be possibly correct translation - but not when in the same window :-D  https://yadi.sk/i/OBUFktwrqwZfh
