I have no idea what you said. Greek?
I can personally confirm that his computer is old as shit (I've seen it in person) and he is pretty tech-less.
Pretty sure this is the computer he has
He does have a smartphone but he does not use it as such lol
As promised, I'll give him a call. Please, hold.
Alright, y'all... I just called Mr. Enbloc. He is alive, doing well, and not dying. I repeat, he is NOT dying. He says he'll try and come back on NES real quick to let all y'all know he's fine. You know... if his 13 yr old computer and dial up modem will let him
It's only been 2 days and we all miss you already. Don't go!
JFC. Will one of you closer to him than I am please drop a machine on his desk? I can turn my head to the right and look out the door into my outer office and see an old Dell Optiplex I salvaged from a customer and managed to turn into something... acceptable, but I'm still in the southern end of the Constipation State, and I know one of y'all is better positioned.
If we need to drive a computer to Enbloc, I can volunteer, there have to be some gun shops between the pick up and his house. (Disclaimer, short of plugging it in, I can offer very little technical skills should there be a problem)
I'm happy to inform everyone that he appears to be back because he just 'liked' a shitload of posts in this thread
(I think he's only up to the 4th page as I write this).
His shit's slow. Give him a few more minutes
I literally have that computer stowed in the basement. It's next to the trs-80 and the commodore 64. Not kidding.
That’s got a wicked Intel 8086 8bit, upgradable 512k ram, Dual Double Density Double Sided 5.25 Inch drives. The 300bps acoustic coupler modem is a nice touch! My laptop have 64,000x the max ram of that thing...
No Vic-20, or TI-99? Heath Kit?
He sounds old school, can you dig up a 20mb MFM Drive for him?
Hey the ghost of Enblocs computer just sent me a like.
That’s not creepy, no, not at all.
Lol. Much love to you all!
I'm fine in both health and Spirit.
My computer was the reason for the post. I thought it would be better than just not being able to dial-up and post again. My bad.
I am writing this from my niece's 3 year old computer. At least it looks and works like a computer. It has a large LCD screen, keyboard, mouse, but I can't see the big box that holds the electronics anywhere.
Must be in that Cloud or something...
I have the wherewithal to purchase a new PC, Lol, so I won't need to sell my ammo, and all of you who offered up a PC, or parts and such, Thank you. NES has Heart!
My problem as of now is two-fold. My PC and my dial-up connection. Together, they make the Spanish Inquisition look like "Senior School Day" at Six-Flags...
I will get things updated on my end and it may take a little while so, I will post every week or so on my niece's computer. (I don't 'smart-phone'... )
All of your posts made me laugh pretty good, so thanks for that. And I apologize for my "lame, weak-sauce" post. I had no idea that it would get a second look...
Besides, all my "Cries for Help" include .gifs...
P.S. This is not the .gif that I wanted to post. ^
It's my niece's PC for cryin' out loud...
If he can't, I can lol
Exactly. I didn’t know there was even dial-up anymore.
I wonder if enbloc is using pre-internet Prodigy. You can use the SAABRE system to book an airline ticket online now. Lol
Yeah buddy! Welcome back!
I didn’t know dial up was even offered anymore.
Better you post her .gifs on your thread than your .gifs on hers. That could be embarrassing.
"Weak sauce" is good. I haven't seen "clambag" for a long long time and that is not as much a term of endearment.
I nearly busted a gut! Glad to hear you’re in good health.
i have a 300 baud modum in my closet you can have. i think it still has the prodigy disk in the box so you'll be good to go.
p.s., you're funnin' us regarding that dial up, right?. just the elvis photo you put up here on the first post would have taken 2 days to transmit via dial up...you rascal!!
hey...I have one of those rolling balls thingy! It works great for lower back muscle spasms and it seems good for doge too. I am SO glad to see you back enbloc...now let’s talk M1’s
Has someone sent this pillar a Chromebook or something yet? (If not, I may snag one off Amazon.)
@enbloc so you thought you could leave that easily.. did ya..muhiHAhahahaha
We should set up a NES Social Security Fund.
A bit of our yearly membership goes to fund data usage on iPads for those who have "dial-up".
If you have more than 10,000 posts and 1000 likes, you qualify.
It's like a government ponzie scheme for wayward gun nuts to connect to the hive.
Back in the 90's, my then mid-70's mom got mad at the phone company because they wouldn't give her a party line. (google it - it isn't dirty)
She had to explain to the account rep what it even was.
I want my... I want my Web TV
It's hotlinked from DuckDuckGo, so I'll at least give him credit about learning how to fly beneath the radar.
Spend $30 a month for 10GB of hot spot access from Sprint.
Don't waste it on HD p*rn or you'll run out of data prematurely...
If everyone who chimed into this thread donates $1, you'll be set!
We suffered long enough without Mr. Enbloc during his operation.
We can't want a whole week for him to grace our presence again.
