Tony looked pretty peaceful laying there, there was about 40 people there. Sadly I had to go before the service but my friends said it was a good one and everyone pretty much cried. Before I left I offered Violaine anything I can do for her just say the word and I'm there. She told me about some parts that needed to be reviewed because she had no idea what to do with it and I told her I'd facebook her in a few days to pick up some stuff. Everything I get I'll review for Tony via YouTube with my new webcam I picked up. Borrowing a friends DSLR to make written reviews too. I plan on selling off whatever I get to give back to Tony's family. I won't let him and his family down considering what he has inspired me to do with my life.

The HIS & Powercolor video cards have to come back to me, I requested them, they were shipped to me and I shipped them to Tony to review, so they are my responsibility. If worse comes to worse, I'll be publishing the all reviews that are sitting here on my friends website. The GPU reviews can't be posted in a forum, this has to be done the right way. However there is a Azza case, and the Enthoo Primo case that you can review. Thanks

Thanks Mike, I sent Tony's wife my UPS account information, I'm going to have her ship all the samples back to me. I want you guys to know, that I will be making an offer on Pro-Clockers, I want this site to grow as a tribute to Tony, which means within a year Pro-Clockers should have a facelift. I'd also like to maybe keep a photo of Tony, on our home page, this way he'll never be forgotten.

I'm also thinking about doing a high-end build, and auctioning it off on eBay, with all the funds going to Tony's family. Silverstone and a couple of other company's would also like to help out, with either a drive or donating hardware for auction, with all funds going to Tony's family.

What I would really like to do, is try to get enough cash over the next year, to start a college fund for Tony's daughters, if any of you agree that this would be a good idea, please let me know.

Thanks Guys

This just still is hard to believe, I miss talking to tony daily about random stuff and catching up, learning something new to each other and just crazy ideas.

Also stand for his daughters that sounds good. We did something like that for my one buddy who passed away in october for his son.

I'll see what I can do, but this will mostly depend on a lot of help from sponsors. Even if we only get enough to cover the first year for both of them, it would be a big help, seeing how expensive it is to go to college now, never mind 13-14 years from now.

Hey Guys, Tony's wife sent me a couple of photos, which I will post here sometime this weekend. I would really like everyone's opinion, on which photo we should post on our home page.

Thanks

Yeah, why not put it in a escrow and let it build up over time so atleast it makes profit in a sense and still have a little more as every bit helps.

That's a good idea, I'll have to talk to Violaine about that, seeing as she would need to open a new account.

Yeap, its the best way. Atleast you know if people put money in it will never be touched and will always grow till they are old enough to use the money for school.

"Not saying anything bad" Just how I am knowing its staying safe till its ready and usable by them.

Hi Guys

I have a updated for all of you, Tony's wife Violaine found a couple of the passwords we were looking for, so hopefully this will be what we need to start posting reviews again, and get Pro-Clockers numbers back up where they should be. I would also like to thank everyone that kept posting to keep Pro-Clockers alive. I'll keep everyone updated on the reviews.

Now that we will be posting reviews again, I really need to find 2-3 people interested in reviewing, so if you have any experience writing, own a decent digital cam, and you have the time to do reviews, send me a PM

Thanks Guys
Stan
