    I'm so gutted I missed RTX London. I understand that not everyone had the best time there, but it would have been my first convention. More importantly, my first convention and it's by the company that inspires me the most and I don't go a day without watching some of their content. I bought my ticket in June, was fully prepared to have the time of my life... Then I had to move house and am unemployed, which ended up taking all of my money away from me, so I  couldn't afford travel or accommodation. There was nothing I was looking forward to in 2017 than RTX London, and I had to miss it because of fucking money. I just hope there's an RTX London 2018, because no way in fuck am I going to miss another one

    I would love for a RTX Toronto seeing as I'm unable to travel to Texas. Alas I'll be happy regardless as long as you guys just keep creating all this wonderful content for me to watch. Being Disabled leaves a lot of free time and you guys usually fill 3+ hours a day for me :D

    Oh, btw, technically I would prefer an RTX Hamilton over Toronto for a few reasons. First of all being that for other Canadians that would need to fly to get to Hamilton or Toronto, then Hamilton Domestic flights are actually cheaper (for Westjet at least, I can usually get a ticket to Halifax for $100). So naturally you would get more Canadian attendance than just the People in the GTA(Greater Toronto Area) and Hamiltion Region. The next reason would be Driving. Obviously both downtown Toronto and Hamilton are traffic filled, However Hamilton is much easier to navigate. Also Toronto's "Downtown" is considerably larger.  And finally because it's cheaper. Just as an example, a Little Ceasar's Hot n Ready Pizza in Hamilton is $5-6. In Toronto it's $7-8. Although I do have to admit that Gas prices suck here too though, so I can't say that's cheaper.

    It's a shame that RTX London was so disorganised though... Loads of people couldn't get in to the major panels like MDB and RWBY, while queuing instructions from guardians changed by the bloody hour. There was limited seating, limited things to do and it was completely understaffed. Some people essentially paid £45 just to queue up for the weekend. It really needed some much needed improvements and I know that a lot of community members wouldn't go again with the shambles the event was in.

    Was stoked when I heard RT were coming to London and I could finally attend an RTX, bought tickets soon as I could, was counting down the days... and when the weekend finally came I spent the time in hospital instead; too ill to attend. Was absoutely crushed.
    Looks like everyone had a super time though, so here's to next year!

    Two Questions:

    1. Where the hell is Burnie doing the blog?  (I know this is probably a nube question, but I don't actually know and wanna know what to call that sweet setup)

    2. Where is Ellie and who is she assassinating for Burnie?

    Tip for the coffee from a Starbucks barista of 3 years, don't let your shots of espresso sit. Shots are best while they still have a caramelized look to them (best viewing of this is through a clear glass), however, they quickly start to settle and "die" as we call it. Once this happens the shot settles and appears to be all black and the flavor greatly suffers due to this. another option is to manually stir the shots after they pour while you are waiting for your milk to finish steaming. This doesn't completely stop the "dying" process, but it does make it not as bad. Another option is to add a flavor to your coffee and stir / swirl your cup to mix the shot and flavor together, because then the shot is mixed and infused in the sugar, syrup, or whatever you decide to flavor your drink with while your milk is steaming. This may not completely fix your coffee issue, but it will definitely help, along with aerating your milk as you steam it, but a youtube video would better show you how to do that. Keep up the amazing work!!

    I was lucky enough to meet Burnie during RTX London by pure chance. I did a 15 second interview with him on how I started my own content creation company off the back of so much good advice from him and he even accepted a badge from me with our logo on it. I can't thank Burnie and the whole fleet of RT staff that made RTX London possible. It was an awesome weekend. Here's to next year!

    "A lot of people don't consider the UK to be in Europe, proper"

    Well, just because "we" voted to leave the EU, we'll still be a part of Europe

      Besides not having had the Euro, "you" also live on an island that people consider "disconnected" from continental Europe.

      [Throws back geography stuff]


      No offence meant, although my only trip (yet) to London wasn't great (probably because it was a school trip). Seriously, The British Isles have an interesting history, a lot of great places to visit and, according to people I know, it (Scotland) is a great place for hiking tours.

      @Klorix I think this person said "we" because there was a pretty decisive line between leave voters (the older generation) and the stay voters (basically everyone else) resulting in a nearly 50/50 split. Also now polls are showing more people want to stay than leave. I know it won't change anything, but it really should :(


    • Klorix FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      @bpunman — Thank you for trying to clarify. I am aware of the quotation marks and their meaning, which is why I used them in my reply. I did interpret that LazarouDave meant the majority of voters and not necessarily himself, which I was also referring to with "you".

        

      I merely pointed out (or rather tried to) why the UK has been regarded as a bit of an outsider (for lack of a better word), which is what LazarouDave was referring to in his quote.


      One point being their (the political entity named UK) decision of not taking part in the currency union of the euro – regardless of any opinion whether that was a good or a bad decision.

       

      Secondly because geographically, the British Isles are obviously not connected by land to the main continental land mass.


      People also tend to not be very specific in their use of Europe (continent), EU (the European Union) and the euro (currency) and Euro-zone, adding to the confusion. 

       

      I am sorry if I inadvertently hurt any feelings, I am not always good at expressing my thoughts and my tries at being humorous do tend to cause misunderstandings.

    • LazarouDave FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Can't afford Double Gold

      @Klorix I can confirm that "we" was implying that as a country, while i myself voted to remain in the EU


      And as for the not connected to mainland Europe, if you applied to same logic elsewhere, it'd mean Japan isn't part of Asia, Hawaii isn't part of the U.S, New Zealand isn't a part of Oceania/Australasia (When in fact they all are, despite not being physically connected, etc. etc.)


      And i think we just chose not to adopt the Euro (probably to do with economy reasons, and to be fair, we'd be much worse off now if we had taken it on board) - anyway, all's good, if there was no vitriol intended with the statement, then speak your mind, we all have free speech and such.

    Burnie if you do other speaking engagements besides PAX/RTX you should do it in Austin. Maybe a business talk in how to run successful businesses for colleges or just for the public. That way you don't have to go somewhere else and you can continue to inspire people outside the normal fans.
