Guest Monadnock & NES Need your Help!!!
Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by enbloc, May 24, 2019.
Speaking of enblocs, I could sure use an M1 Garand
Ok, let's get a go fund me page setup.
I'll donate the first hundred.
You cheap wads better fork over some of your hidden go time money!
Because everyone wants to upgrade stuff even when their older stuff is still functional, you can't even give away working used computer equipment anymore. I have an older laptop that's very slow and I installed Ubuntu on to help it limp along... I don't use it though and couldn't give it away if I tried. Besides, Grant probably has some newer equipment anyway that's better than this (and also can't be given away).
Pretty soon I'm going to be upgrading my PC, which means upgrading the 2 24" monitors connected to it (because it uses obsolete DVI interface)... they look at good as new. $0 resale value. The PC is very fast thanks to lots of memory and an SSD, but I'd be lucky to fetch $100 for it.
Anyway, the point is, unable to afford a PC isn't an excuse.
Why didn't I think of this a week ago? My fridge died (but I replaced it already). And if my fridge dies, I don't eat. And, if I don't eat, I die. Donate me a new fridge so I can continue living long enough to post on NES!
No can do, Matt. You're a lifer, stuck with us and no chance of parole.
But seriously: seriously?
False news. You can't leave. It's like the Mafia. Once you're in, you're in. Know what I mean!
PING! Get yourself a computer of some sort and stick around
Seriously we must be able to crowd fund a device of some kind for en bloc. I can’t imagine the forum without him
Theres prob thousands of unused computers just here on NES. People dont throw away computers, they just stick them in a corner and buy a new one.
Flip the computer upside down, this will prevent the magic smoke from from getting out and causing further issues.
Like another person in this thread, I, too, thought you were dying. Jesus, Matt... what a bad title lol ... If you're serious about pulling the plug cuz your wicked old computer is dying...... someone here can donate a computer to you or a laptop or a tablet. Or we can all pool together something for you to get something. We need you on here to balance things!
If we don't hear back from him in a week or something... I'll give him a ringy ding ding on the ole tele if someone else on here doesn't beat me to it.
I'm not buying this...lol Gone over to the Dark side, say it ain't so ?
BTW: Can I have your M-1's
I mean just to access this forum a Raspberry Pi with a TV should be fine.
CanaKit Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (B Plus) Starter Kit (32 GB EVO+ Edition, Premium Black Case) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BCC8PK7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_Jyi6CbJJH31DM
That’s only $79 on Amazon, quad-core, Linux Dist, GPU, 1GB ram and 32GB SD card, plus all the port you need with Bluetooth and WiFi...
Damn, beat me to it!
C’mon Enbloc, Life is way to short to give up something that gives you and others so much happiness!!! Don’t leave us bro!! NES needs you!!
NNNOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo!!!!!!! You're one of my favorite people here!
Excellent! I was hoping someone had contact info in case he couldn't check in.
Yeah... kinda thought we were looking at some seriously bad news, glad it’s just a computer. I just replaced three of my office computers this week, have the three old ones which are still functional if you need one.
He speaks the truth. I tried giving up NES a couple years ago. Last summer I even did some drunk post binges trying for a suicide by moderator gig like the Doob did.
'bloc, I have a ThinkPad 760 kicking around somewhere. It's yours. It even has a 1200 baud pcmcia modem.
Take a deep breath and step off that ledge...I'll buy you a donut and coffee and take you to the range. And somebody will get you a decent PC.
My fridge died last Sunday, but I haven't stopped eating or drinking!
mr. enbloc, several solutions offered here, pal.... you're the protagonist to me, the antagonist. i'll give you my phone to use to get on. shit, several weeks ago management stopped short of calling me a racist and gigged me, i'm still here! i didn't call it a day and fold!
Your way too good to leave!
The boxes I have are similar, 8G ram, decent 128G SSD (and if he needs more storage, i have a huge pile of 1tb drives around that could be dropped in) just not something I sell at this point except to my one guy left with a ton of the same boxes still in service. Beefy enough for nes and gun porn/youtube/etc... only reason my customer upgraded out of them is the web apps they use chew up gobs of ram and they smack up against 8gb... best part for enbloc is I have gobs of spare PSU, etc, for these units too....
But, but, but, your a Life Member...?
Go to Walmart and buy a $150.00 laptop? They work damn well for surfing the net only..
he ain't goin nowhere.
if everyone who posted to the thread pitched in $10, he'd be with us again tomorrow.
I'm pretty sure that he has a nice box of .40S&W to give you.
