Why have I never heard of Trackmania?

It's good, but has the annoyance of Starforce which makes me reluctant to reinstall it. 

There's a free version - Trackmania Nations - lying about somewhere, albeit also with Sf.  See http://www.trackmanianations.com/indexUk.php, albeit I don't know if it includes the trackbuilder from the retail games (which is really what made them worthwhile)

What on earth is the point of having starforce on a freely available game? Especially one that is, presumably, downloaded and doesn't even need a CD in the first place? The depths of stupidity some members of the human race are capable of never cease to amaze me.

Because you can reverse engineer the executable in order to run (a pirated copy of) the retail version, otherwise.

They are now, yeah.  I think by dint of one of the Starforce forum admins directing people to download GalCiv2 (including a link) when it was pointed out how Stardocks commendable attitude to their customers, including not needing the CD or having intrusive copy protection to play it, had seen high sales for that game.  Additionally, Ubisoft dropped them as a result of a class action suit being brought over starforce, and CDV and JoWood have dropped it as well (due to complaints, and in the US at the least).

"The Thousandth Landing" from the BSG season one soundtrack goes perfectly with this movie, even matching up with some of the cuts.

*Looks at title* hmmm....

Oh, and very nice find.

Praytell, how exactly did you happen across that?

Methinks they have a wee collision detection bug somewhere...

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

AFAIK they don't have collision detection at all. The video was made by some guy driving the track again and again and again, then somehow overlaying all his different run-throughs so it looks like you've got 1000 cars going at once. The slight variations in each run-through are what make it interesting.
