    Some pics I took while hillwalking at home.... Flynn was enjoying himself, exploring every inch of woodland. And he spotted a nice place to cool down.... Ok, Flynn I think you have had enough bath time. Time to go home...

    Alrighty, so it appears it is time for an update. I have been working on my exciting projects lately, of which I will go into further detail in a moment. I had deleted the Totallympics TV YouTube channel in order to better serve my needs. It will now be easier for me to access those playlists and post them on here (hopefully). I will be updating the links on the front page and in other posts over the following days. I will try to provide a weekly streaming schedule sometime in the feature for all multi-sport and Olympic qualification events. So now let’s talk about some of the exciting projects: 1: I now have the ability to record and broadcast live sport. I don’t know how useful this could be, but It could be used for at least small journalistic segments, and as a way to post highlights I have been authorized to. This is more for personal honestly, but I will try to use it to create some cool stuff for my Totallympics friends too. 2: I have my own website and blog. I talk mostly about sports and politics because that is what I like. I also have links to my sports and nature photography on there as well. You can also find my poetry on there too. 3: I have a new YouTube channel where I can hopefully post/broadcast some exciting stuff. 4: This is the most important new edition for my Totallympic friends. Me and @Vojthas have put around a month of work into getting a podcast of the ground. It is called the “Totallympics Weekly Update” and it (at least for now) focuses on recapping the sports from the week (obviously). I hope in the future to post special episodes that talk about weird sport stories, Olympic facts, explain weird sports, etc. I can also announce now that daily shows are planned for the African Beach Games, European Games, and Pan American Games. I will add a schedule somewhere for people to view episodes, episode length, topics, etc. This is a new Project and it’s something me and @Vojthas are really happy to bring you guys. We ask for your support in both helping to make it and listen to it. In the future it may be uploaded to YouTube with pics, photos, etc.. You can currently find our podcast on Spotify, Pocketcasts, and Anchor; all you have to do is search the name. If your interesting in helping out please DM me. That is the end of the Update, here is a link to the first episode: https://anchor.fm/matthew-nelsen

    Again I create a topic here, again I need to explain my situation, and why have I been missing for so long. The matter was quite personal for me,, as just a few weeks after my grandmother has passed away from leukemia, my mother has also been diagnosed with cancer, and if that wasn’t enough, that was around the same time I’ve lost my first job. So I wasn’t in the best condition emotionally or physically, and I have had to quit school and other hobbies, including Totallympics. Luckily, the situation turned out not to be as bad, as cancer turned out to be curable, and she responds very well to chemotherapy, and thanks to that I’ve lately managed to set my life on the right path again, at least partially :) Lately, everything is going quite good, so I’d like to return, especially after Sindo contacted me, and I want to repay for the days I missed. Still, for the first few days, i may not be very active, but I’ll do my best to help with the forum, and I’ll log in as often as I can. Hopefully, other things will resolve too, and I hope to have a good time on Totallympics again like I used to all those months ago BTW wow, nearly 1000 notifications it's nice to see Totallympics so busy while I was gone

    Totallympics International Song Contest - Announcements: A couple of important announcements to be made in the world of TISC today. The first announcement relates to the length of time it takes between the date the TISC thread opens and the day of the Grand Final. I think it is fair to say that some momentum is being lost from the time songs are selected and voted upon until we get to the Grand Final. Therefore, I think a reduction in the length of time for the registration period, voting period and more importantly, a reduction in the length of time between the date the voting closes and the Grand Final would be beneficial. The reductions won't be anything drastic, but if it cuts maybe 2 weeks off the overall period of time, it may allow for a more dynamic process and hopefully will keep interest in the thread at a consistent level throughout. The current rules state the following: Perhaps we should reduce the period of registration time to 2 weeks and keep the voting window at 2 weeks. Meaning we have 4 weeks given in total to registration and voting? There would still be a couple of days given to the host to cast their votes in between both windows, but this might help keep the momentum right through the process. Also, I would recommend then to have the Grand Final no more than 2 weeks after the voting window closes. Obviously if the host needs more time then we will allow that, just like we always do, but that would be the recommendation. Any thoughts on this? I will conduct a vote on this proposal in the next week so if there are any suggestions, please feel free to write them so we can include them there. Secondly, and more importantly, the host of the next TISC Annual in 2020 has now been settled. Ladies and Gentlemen I am happy to announce that @heywoodu has agreed to take on the hosting duties after his runner-up finish at TISC Annual 2019. Therefore get your tickets booked, for TISC 2020 we are making our way to the Netherlands Netherlands 2020

    That's what happens when you only have 10 athletes per event, but still want to guarantee continental representation. Combat sports should have a minimum of 16 athletes per event.

    Just letting you all know of an update to my Road To Tokyo tool. The data capture process now reads performances (IAAF Top List) as well as the IAAF World Rankings. The filtered rankings, e.g. top 3 per nation, are based on athletes with the standard first (ordered by performance), then athletes without the standard (ordered by IAAF world rankings points as before). Unfortunately it doesn't take account of the oddities like finishing in the top 10 at a Gold Level marathon where athletes are awarded the standard irrespective of time. If you select "See All" you'll see all the athletes who have the standard. The tool is hosted (replicated) in the following 2 locations: https://bluecattechnical.shinyapps.io/RoadtoTokyo/ https://www.bluecattechnical.uk/RoadToTokyo/

    Occasionally I write a poem I become very found of. The following is a political poem about asylum seeker and refugees, inspired by the argument presented in Capernaum. Sanctuary I am no one, I matter to none. They bomb my house My country is like an outhouse, Full of shit. It’s split. At the seams where people tear, Each other apart without care. The soldiers shoot the innocent. War is their sad little instrument. They play an tune of death, And sell large amounts of meth. I want a better life, Away from all this strife. One where I can actually live past ten. One where I can play again. One where I don’t live in fear, Where imagination is my only frontier. I want to live. These “refugees” take our jobs. I don’t really feel a need to sob. Who are they to steal the American dream? They all just want to sit around and eat ice cream. They are lazy, And their “truths” are all so hazy. How am I supposed to sell a house? I’m caught in a political trap like a mouse. Ah, I’ve got it! Parent with child, make em’ split. Asylum seekers at my gate I’ll disseminate hate. “Build that wall!” I’ll yell. Then we’ll throw them all in a cell. I had this notion, That I would one day swim in an ocean. Drifting carelessly in the water Away from all the manslaughter. I would be free, My life long and lengthy. Instead in live nowhere. I am no one. I am nothing. I am an afterthought, Just waiting to be shot. You are the worst. America First.

    2017-20 Athlete Performance Database Link I'm in the middle of creating an athlete database and I'm wondering if some of you want to beta test it before coming fully online by the end of the month. Basically I want to know if it works for everyone and whether there are any formatting errors. The other big thing would be whether or not the names for some athletes are spelt correctly. Sadly a lot of times there are mistranslations when the name is romanized, additionally some athletes change their name (mostly due to marriage) or even nationality.

    This tournament is a complete joke. Not just because of the b teams, but mostly because everyone plays like they don't give two shits. Nothing really matters, this doesn't qualify for anything, it's just a bother amid preparation for the real qualifiers which are in 2 months, ranking points are laughable, it's 15 games just to make the finals, the main leagues finished like 2 days ago... I miss the old World League of the 90s/early 00s almost all teams cared, B teams were rare and the title had prestige.

    Final Standing available here Vojthas Finnator123 Topicmaster1010 What an end of the contest! It was exciting to follow the changes in the top three positions. Almost like Game of Thrones, but here the winner is not that unexpected, since @Vojthas hold the position at one moment. This one is final, and brings him first gold medal in prediction contests if I remember well. Congratulation! And finally, after so many attempts, @Finnator123-I-never-medal-in-these-contests wins his first ever medal in Totallympics Prediction contests and first one for Finland after many years! On top of that, Finland won the World Championship! Many congratulations to Finland on gold and Finnator123 on silver medal! Canada won silver and @Topicmaster1010 was close to defend his title from last year, but being almost out of top 10 last two days, this result is excellent recovery! Congratulation on bronze medal @hckosice will wait for real hockey it seems, but luckily next year is Olympic year, so no need to wait 4 years for hockey world championship Thank you all who participated, and with this we are closing winter sports, and can turn on summer full of football! Women's FIFA World Cup prediction contest is already opened, so join in!

    Almost nothing makes sense except for Sansa getting independence for the North. Dialogues are comical. That meeting of the remaining high lords is laughable. Really disappointed with the way story is closed. I hope GRRM really finishes the books before he, you know... It looks like it was all directed by Brandon the Broken! At least "the wheel" is broken. So, is House Stark going to exist after Sansa?
