    Well, after many good years, my 13 year-old PC is giving up the ghost. I have spent the last 4 hours trying to get various websites to load. At 5pm I starting getting a little connectivity, but I think this will about do it for me. I will not be upgrading my system. Just unplugging it.

    I'd like to thank the entire NES Community for the wonderful times and learning experiences I've gotten to share in with you all. Derek, DrGrant and all the Mods have been great and slow to anger and have provided a top-notched Firearms and Gun Rights forum. From the bottom of my heart; Thank You.

    To my many friends, stay safe, stay healthy, stay True, but most of all Stay Accurate!

    I will check in from time to time, when I come across an unattended PC, without security cameras monitoring it. [smile]

    So, God Bless and God Speed NES...
    Fraternally Yours,
    ~Enbloc

    You DO realize, of course, that half (or better) of NES has spare gear you could probably have to replace that old box, that would be yours for the asking?

    First of all, when I read the subject line, I thought you were dying, so I’m relieved it’s just the PC.

    Do you need or want another one, maybe someone can donate one or we can take up a collection?

    I’ve been here exclusively via phone for over two years now, so it can be done that way believe me.

    See you again in less than a week. Unless you go to counseling. You can't just quit cold turkey. It doesn't work like that. I have a spare desktop and monitor if you want it.

    No you don't. You can't get away that easy. I'm ready to contribute to a new computer for you if someone will arrange this. Jack.

    You survived surgery last year, you can certainly survive this. Take Dr. Grant up on his offer.
