Crabbers computer issues
« on: March 11, 2019, 10:21:04 PM »

Our boy crabber is in need of a computer since he moved into the new veteran home.
DR and steamers do you have any ideas?
I will help fund it
When a friend needs assistance we that have need to help
Anything that can get him on line would be good

75 let me see what I can do.  May take a couple days.  Unfortunately, if I can put something together, I can't travel that far right now.  Someone would have to pick it up and take it to him.

Actually 75, I checked my stuff and I have a couple.  It will take me a couple days to check them out and update one of them.  I have a good monitor to go with it and I can snag a keyboard and mouse if I don't have spares.  I'm about 50 miles away from you though and I'm having some minor issues that I can't venture too far from the house for another month or so!  If you can fetch and deliver, I'll supply the rest.

75, please do call the home and find out.  If it's LAN, I can do a desktop for him.  If it's wireless, I'll have to make sure I have a modem that will work, which I think I do.  If not I have a couple of good laptops in storage and I can get one of them going for him.  Let me know as soon as possible so I can get started. 

Also 77, once I know, it will only take me a day or two until it's ready.  You and I will have to decide when you want to come up and pick the stuff up.  BTW, It's real easy to get to my house from Reading.  My youngest brother lived in West Lawn for years and I was down there every other weekend! lol

Steamers, you actually did help and didn't even know it.  One of the computers I'm looking into fixing up for Crabber, you gave me some of the parts contribution a couple years ago.  It was a nice Dell and either you or the Mrs. upgraded and you gave it to me to harvest parts off of.  You actually contributed a hard drive, RAM and a DVD burner. LOL  Thanks buddy!!

You can't say the PSB isn't a full service sports board.  We'll even get our members computers and deliver them!!  ;D ;D  I guess that would make 75 Vice President of Transportation!!

Ha Ha, got to do something to keep busy. When I saw crabber at the Lasalle game I knew something was bothering him so we got into a conversation about his new digs and he was bummed his computer was down. This is where we come in. I called the home, and of course the young lady at the desk was clueless about wifi and LAN (she knew cellphones though). Spoke with Crabber and he said he thinks they have a wall hookup for LAN.
DR, if you can do LAN and WIFI I can make it work for him one way or another. Steamers I don't need any gas money or anything like that but maybe us guys could have a cold one when I come up to DR's place this month. we will have to schedule around the PIAA playoffs and of course fricken taxes. Guys I think we can really do a good deed here for a guy that needs it   8)   DR, just let me know what expenses you need covered and consider it handled, however if it goes over an arm and a leg I will have to hit steamers up for that other leg   ;D

coffee is good for me also, we could also meet at a local diner and have breakfast as another idea. the cold one is cool but I am not a drinker either except for a brewskie now and then( I lie-I got plastered after the funeral ::) You and DR decide and we will make something work.

I know you said this before that you had ties to West Lawn, but where did your brother live?
I have ties to Old West lawn myself (wonderful old macadam playground)
