  • 2018 fundraising

    Hey guys. We're approaching the end of 2018 and we haven't hit our fundraising goal. Since I am now hands off with the site, managing it's funds and bills is really the only thing I handle here since I want to avoid conflicts with my day job, and my schedule is pretty crazy anyway. Delayofgame.ca has always run 100% on community support. Without it the site will cease to operate.

    A couple of years ago we switched from doing a big annual fundraising drive for the yearly bill payment, to instead just having the donate link in the sidebar all the time to see how it would go that way. It seems this is a less effective approach. The previous method got the year funded fairly quickly and this new method didn't do much at all. maybe next year we'll just go back to the old way ;)

    The site's domain and hosting expenses total about $100/year after tax. While 2018 hasn't been funded, we're nearly at the end, and we'll have to start 2019 fundraising in Jan/Feb.

    There is a link in the sidebar just to the right here where you can contribute. As contributions are made, I'll make an effort to update this thread so you guys know the rolling tally and when the goal is hit for the year. Depending on how fast it's hit I may consider keeping it up to proactively fundraise for 2019's bills too since we're only a few months away.

    Thanks. :)

    Tims crazy life...we need to make a reality show on tims life

    Anyway, im still in greece. Im currently on an island called Timos. I havent dont anything today. I am very tired from the past few days in Athens...

    Heres what happened so far

    When i got to thessaloniki i rented a car and in greece they only drive standard. I have never driven standard. I learned really fast as i left the rental company parking lot onto the crazy streets of thessaloniki.

    I headed right away to my old village of vissinia which was a 2 and a half hour drive.

    I got to vissinia...walked around the village. Looking at everything and it looked the same as it did 20 even 30 years ago.

    Stayed with my uncle for the most part. Met up with cousins....one cousin took me on a day trip to a beach 3 hours away by bus and we swam and drank and got burned.

    Spent the first week and a half with them

    Then i left for Athens. Stopped in Delphi 4 hours away abd checked out the museum and hiked up the mountain with the temple of apollo and on a hot as hell day. Thought i was gonna die.

    After a few hours heade the rest of the way to Athens
    Checked into my very cheap hotel
    Hotel Orpheus. Just 2 beds and a bathroom.
    Little did i realize it was boiling hot and mosquitos loved it.

    If i closed all the windows id die. Leaving even one a bit opened meant fighting respawning mosquitos all night. I am currently full of mosquito bites.

    The good part was that it was a 30 minute walk to the acropolis. Which was pretty awesome. Though my hike up to and into the acropolis was again a scorching hot day.

    I apent 3 nights in Athens. My area was full of junkies and homeless people. I saw people injecting drugs and snorting coke off the sidewalk. I also got no sleep the final night because of the heat and damned mosquitos...

    I left the following morning (yesterday) at 5 am. I needed to get out as i couldnt manage another minute there

    So i left and went to the port of piraeus where i parked my rental for the last leg of the trip and got on a ferry to Timos. Where i am right now.
    I will leave here saturday on another ferry for milos for 4 nights with a quick stop on mykonos. Finally spending one night on Santorini before heading back to piraeus and driving 6 or so hours to thessaloniki to spend a night and the next day leave to come home.

    My hotel on Timos is much nicer. No mosquitos. Has air condition. Is right on the beach and has a kitchen

    I agree 100% but the only information we had at the time was that there was a single downed line like 2km up the road.

    Like I said we were being super careful and cautious. We had our lights on bright and we were driving like a snail to make sure we could see everything. Every car we passed we stopped and asked what the situation was. At that point we only knew about the one downed line and a couple of trees and we were being told that if you could get around this one tree we would be good until the one line we knew about

    I had to get out of the car to check if we could make it around the tree and that's when we noticed the hidden downed line in the branches of the fallen tree.

  • !Movies! - Old - New - !Movies!

    I finally got around to seeing Black Panther on sunday... I saw it in 4K, and might watch the 3D version , but maybe not since the movie was pretty bland.

    Bad fights. Like boring, not exciting and slow paced as in you can see the actors thinking too much about the choreography while doing the moves.

    There is a scene in some club where black panthers guard has a spear and it swinging it around knocking people over , but shes not putting any force or speed into the hits so it took me out of the immersion.

    Even the main character , ole panther himself was not exciting to watch fight. Nor was he likable. Sure he was a good guy but he was a very boring guy too. Killmonger and the leader of the gorilla tribe were far more fun to watch on screen.

    The CG was very bad through the movie.
    The story was very basic and very predictable. It was marvel paint by numbers.

    Many spots where it looked like the star wars prequels where you can see a major separation between the characters and the green screen.

    Big disappointment after how highly people talked about this movie.

    Yeah I love bad books. You read a bunch of them and when you finally get to a good one it's that much better because of all the bad ones.

    I cant say I have ever read any historical fiction. Mostly mystery/thriller/suspense and some fantasy.
