    NOT!

    My old reliable Toshiba LapChop finally blew up in a major way.. #-o …I think it was that HOg Acid threw at me…..or maybe it was Raden….buts its pretty toasted.

    Any ways, unless someone has a main board for a ‘Shiba 1415-S173 they want to donate….or you could take up a collection to get the ol’ Chop a shiny new computer…maybe a duo core , 4 GB hotrod :mrgreen:
    i gotta sit out a little while. 😥

    The War Department says …”You ain’t puttin’ that game on my computer…..then I’ll NEVER get to use it!” [-X

    But Honey…”I’ll share.” I says…. 🙂 ….BUZZ! Wrong! 😆

    I’m researching…any suggestions? Budget is pretty tight due to the great economy after all the bailouts,stimuli and ….ahem….taxes I had to pay for being one of the few people in this country actually working….

    I need a new hammer.

    In my recent times of pc troubles, a few members generously offered to
    send me hardware to get my systems back up. I was able to find parts
    locally, but perhaps someone of greater need would benefit more.
    Either Viking or Tumbleweed may be a person to chat with. No-one should
    be without a system to Scorch with.. that’s just heartwrenching 😀

    You out of duct tape chop? Surely you have some bailing wire sitting around. Check out your local feecycle we have some old slow laptops pop on ours all the time.

    Well, if you pay the postage Choppy, I can prob source you a machine capable of running scorched.
    Won’t run it well I doubt, but should be sufficient.

    Unlikely to be a laptop tho, would be propa PC and screen (so weight will be pretty high).

    Sorry to hear that Chop.
    As some of the more discerning users on here know……..My entire knowledge of computers can be fitted on the left cheek of an amoeba’s arse so I may not be able to help.

    I can fix your motorbike or teach you how to use a crane if that helps 😉

    Ok, I KNOW this is going to cause me GREAT pain, but some things must be said.

    Breathe in.
    Breathe out.

    That is very true, especially BOTH skills together.
    Almost everyone with more than half a brain cell can fix a computer (I had to get SOMETHING in there), but drive a crane AND teach how to ride a bike.

    Fair play.

    @ Chopper-
    Hey old friend…..PM me. We may be able to figure something out. Much respect for all of you trying to figure out something to help the Chop out =D>
    *I’m on a really tight budget also* So, I understand 😉

    1)Could you get by with a older desktop? (You would have to supply-Monitor,keyboard,mouse)
    2)How do you connect to the internet?
    3)Would you be ok with running a LINUX operating system?
