Anyone live in Toronto Canada?

I'm hearing they are running an article about this. Yes, Toronto, clear across the continent.

I was wondering if you could mail me the newspaper if it happens? I'm assuming it will be tomorrow's paper or the day after.

I know i can probably find it online, buy wife likes to scrapbook, so print would be best.

I also just had an AP interview that might make the national news. how crazy is all of this. Ethan still has no idea, and it's becoming difficult to not talk in front of him. We kept him out of school today because 1st graders talk, and we've been over the local news all weekend.

Here is the local newspaper article that will be published tomorrow.

That's one movie that doesn't need to be remade, and I'd argue, the original shouldn't have been made either.

Here's today's interview at our local abc affiliate.  We have another one scheduled for Sunday, and then Tuesday.  Feels weird and nerve wracking at the same time
7  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / #EthanCleansUp on: July 22, 2016, 06:26:14 PM
So lots of things happening with Ethan's big day this Tuesday.  I like to share since you're all extended family.  We gotta be in our 20 year mark by now right?

In case you don't know...  Ethan is having his wish granted by our local Make A Wish chapter.  His wish is being a garbage man.  On Tuesday July 26th, he'll be picked up at his school with all of the students cheering him on as embarks his new career.  We'll be making several stops throughout Sacramento, (VSP, a firestation, my work (CAL-EPA) Frank Fats, a restaurant, and end up at the State Capital where he will be introduced by our new Mayor, the Chief of Police, and other dignitaries around the area.

He has no idea that this is going to happen.  He has completely forgotten that he went to the Wishing Place to make his wishes, so this will be fun seeing his reaction.

The media and community is heavily involved.  Yesterday I did an interview with the Sacramento Bee, and today we had an interview with our local news station.  A live interview will take place the day of as well. 

I can't wait for him to experience all of this!

I'm also finishing up his garbage truck video that you and many others have submitted.

I'll use this thread to update things as they come.  You can also keep up to date by searching #ethancleansup

I've got a 321MB file for you. It's fantastic quality, as opposed to the preview video.

Thank you!  I'm listing the videos in alphabetical order, and have everything set up in my video editor.  This will make it easy since it's gonna be the last entry smile

I didn't get that option, it even warned me if I quit I lose progress and checkpoints.
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [All] Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens on: June 28, 2016, 09:17:31 PM
So we picked this up for Ethan has he recovers from Tonsil Surgery.  He paid half from his remaining Xmas and Bday money.  How the heck do you save?  I know it uses checkpoints, but in the Lego Movie game there was a save station.  I have yet to see this after playing two levels.  Don't want to quit without saving.
17  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Odd Request but for a good cause !!Last Week!! on: June 25, 2016, 04:18:18 PM
So Ethan has been granted a wish for Make A Wish because of his Cystic Fibrosis. Early this year he went to the wishing place and made 5 wishes based on categories such as, who would you like to meet, where would you like to visit, who do you want to be, and there were two others that I can't recall. He doesn't know, but his wish was granted to be a Garbage Man. Yep, that's right. We don't know all the details of what the day will be like, but if you saw the news a few years back about Batkid, it's going to be something similar but in Sacramento. All I know is they will be picking Ethan up at school to ride in a garbage truck. He has his own uniform to wear and will make several stops from our city to the State Capital. My work (Cal-EPA) is involved and possibly our local AAA baseball team, the River Cats. I also heard there's a toy drive to help other kids in need. I don't know the details as everything is being kept hush hush.

So here's the odd request. I was thinking it would be cool to have videos of all the different types of garbage trucks throughout the world, and what better way to ask a wide audience than OO and GT. I was hoping you would be willing to record a short video of your local garbage man picking up your garbage and send it my way. A file is fine or even a uploaded link from youtube. I have a tool where I can download youtube videos. I'm planning on stiching up all the videos that are collected into one video, I just need yours.

When driving around we see all types of garbage trucks (colors, style, age, etc), So I thought it would be cool to show him what other trucks may look like from all over the world.  He would love it.

The video doesn't need to be long, preferably 30 seconds or less. It would also be helpful if you include your city\state\country.

His wish is on July 27th, and I was hoping to have this done by then. If you can turn them in by July 20th, that would give me the time to make the master video.

Thank you in advance.

You can send the videos with the subject of Garbage Trucks around the World to

Steam has this and the latest tomb raider game for sale (summer sale) for $51.  I'm tempted, but I keep hearing performance issues for PC.  Has it got better?  I know the story is pretty much absent, and that's fine, but how is it now?

gonna miss my voice commands greatly

Voice commands are still in with the "S" version, but will have to use the headset mic

better than nothing, but it means I can't toggle mute to you guys when saying 'record that' anymore.

ya, but when they hear you say that thinking of it as a shaming moment Tongue

Man, this game is flat out the best looking game I've ever seen. The graphics are incredible, and it truly is like playing a movie. The dialog is incredibly well written and believable and I can totally picture someone like Jeremy Renner or Nathan Fillion playing Drake in an actual Uncharted movie.

I loved the quiet scene at Drake's house and his conversation with Elena. There is an awesome game within a game moment there that just blew me away.

I am tired as hell this morning but I want to get right back into it tonight.

The game within a game was really great, but what made it so perfect was the seemless dialogue while playing.  Incredible.

Also, I didn't get very far.  How long can you play it?

you get 3 lives...

Good morning GTers!

This will mark our 7th year participating in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Great Strides event in Sacramento.  Over the 7 years of fundraising, we have raised over $35,000 to help find a cure, fund new research for new medication and therapy programs.  

We couldn't have done it without you!  You have been a key component for our success over the years and out of all of the donations we receive, OO and GT are my favorites because we have never met face to face, and yet you care and are typically the most generous.  I'm very grateful for all of our donations, but  your donations have a special meaning to me just because our only connection is from a gaming forum.  It means a great deal to me and I want every one to know that we are truly thankful for your support over the years (even if you haven't donated, but passed along on good thoughts)

Our walk this year is on May 21st, with our goal of $10,000.  We're just over half way to our goal.  We could really you your help!

Ethan is 6 years old and is doing very well.  Doctors are impressed about how healthy he has been.  We haven't had a hospital stay in over 4 years.  He does have some liver damage that we have been treating (keeping his liver enzymes down).  Other than that, no major issues.  We continue to do nebulizers to help clear his lungs as well as his chest therapy where's hooked up to a machine that shakes his chest to help move the thick mucus out of his lungs.  This is all preventative therapy.

He's just about ready to finish Kindergarten and it's amazing how much he has learned over the year.  This year we have him signed up for soccer which should help his lungs.

If you would like to support our cause, you can visit this link for more info about Cystic Fibrosis with the link to the donation page at the bottom.

Here is our team video for this year.  I tried having it embedded, but I can't figure it out frown

Thanks again for all of your support over the years and into the future!
Ken, Erin, Ethan and Lila
