Ghostbusters Game Save Bug

I've been playing the Ghostbusters game from Atari for a few days now and I must say I'm really enjoying it. I'm not sure if that's just because I love the game or because I grew up loving the cartoons and films and I'm getting a kick from being able to catch ghosts along side the greats. Either way the game really is great fun.

However, it has rather an annoying bug. Twice now I have accessed the career menu to be presented with a New Career option and that's it. No way at all to play on from my last saved position. Apparently this is quite common and there's an easy workaround.

Simply load into the Multiplayer game and then exit back to the Main Menu. Go back into career and you should be able to restart again almost as if nothing happened. I say almost......Sadly the game removes all you Tobin Spirit Guide Tokens and Artifacts. My finances were unchanged but I have heard of other people losing those too. It seems to just have varying degrees of impact.

Being able to get the save back is at least something but come on Atari lets get this one fixed. It shouldn't really take long to get a patch released for this. It's a great game that does not deserve to be impacted so negatively by a beginners programming bug.

Radon in Newry, Mourne and Down - Action & Education Needed

Council budgets have been and continue to be slashed and perhaps that's the reason why more is not being done to educate people on the risk Radon gas is posing to their health in the area of Newry, Mourne and Down. A recently published Government report includes the below map which starkly highlights the huge areas of the district that are potentially exposed to high levels of this naturally occurring radioactive gas.



While the UK Government recognises and highlights the role this gas plays in causing lung cancer the EPA in the U.S. goes further adding numbers and additional facts such as : 1. 21,000 deaths a year are linked to Radon gas in the U.S.  2. It's the second biggest cause of lung cancer after smoking 3. Radon can enter the home through the water supply as well as the soil 4. There is a risk of stomach cancer from ingesting water containing Radon and lung cancer from inhaling the gas carried in the water.
To help protect and educate the population it's time the c…

Asteroid 1999 FN53: The Truth

This is a short post just to correct reports coming out of some media outlets. The 0.9 km wide 1999 FN53 asteroid is not going to hit us on May 14th. There are no instabilities in its orbit that might send it our way. In fact it will not hit us within the next 8000 years. Its going to miss us by about 7 million miles. Panic over. Check out the link below from NASA JPL for more details:
