My Main Laptop is Down - Need Support to Replace or Repair

Recommended Posts

So, I got nearly 3 years out of this one and the screen went out.

 

Time for a new one, problem is I am strapped for cash as I have focused on regenerating the message board. In fact I have devoted so much time to bring the community back from near disaster I have not invoiced Patrons & Sponsors on a timely basis. Making sure the community was back on track has been my main concern. Generating funds to keep it going has taken a back seat. Now, I am forced to ask for help. I have a Supporter that has pledged to match funds up to $1000.00 in order to get a new Macbook Pro.

 

I need to raise these funds in the next 45 days. So, the way that has been done in the past is ask for new Patrons a Sponsors.

 

Being a supporter is not a requirement, those who have chosen to provide such support are recognized by either a Patron or Sponsor Bar under their screen name. I addition they are noted in the sidebar.

Kind of defeats the whole portability thing haha

I'll look into throwing some cash your way soon. Even when I haven't posted I've enjoyed the forum so it's high time I support it.

I have been a member of Tow 411 now Towforce for over 13 years ( I think )  and it is without doubt the most informative forum for the towing industry in existence...

I have met a lot of very knowledgeable folks  and truly very welcoming families and seen many innovative ideas and solutions ......

with the advent of social media some things have changed   ( I am not sure for the better !! ) 

This forum is an excellent learning tool and information exchange and cannot be allowed to founder ....

I have renewed my sponsorship  today  and am proud to do so ....

John.

Louwo, I am working on doing that, but as stated it defeats the purpose on the laptop and I am on the move much of the time.

 

Thanks John aka mushspeed, hoping to replace the Macbook Pro. But, at worst I go back to a regular PC for awhile.

 

Any help is appreciated, hopefully I start getting invoices out soon. Towing has been very busy as of late. Anyone else busy?

Glad to hear you're staying busy. My company has been busy but my night shift has been dead dead dead.

Very busy on day shift. But you are right. Third shift has slowed down. Trying to figure out what is driving this ?

It has been getting chilly here in VA. I'm guessing people are just going home and staying home instead of most of the nightlife we normally have.

Thanks Don, I'll send out an invoice next week. Working on getting a temp solution together as I don't want to just run out and put a new laptop on charge. We are nearly halfway to our goal thanks to New Patrons and a Sponsor. Only 6 weeks remaining to reach the $1000 matching funds.

 

Oh, I know we should all have a backup plan for our personal laptop. At one time, I had a desktop as well but didn't use it much. Think I will be going back to it more.

Technically, it is not the screen. it is the connection between the keypad and the screen. The cost of repair could be higher then the value of the unit. At that, I need to clean off the unit before sending it out to be repaired. Thanks

Not half way to goal, there has to be more members that can support this community

with a new Patron or Sponsor Status.

 

The matching funds up to $1000 are being offered thru November 15th.

Time is ticking down and this effort to raise the funds needed to replace a laptop is falling short.

 

Please Help...

This is the first that I noticed this post.  The title of laptop being down made me assume it was a question about which laptop to buy or something of that nature, so since im not really much into computers I overlooked the post.  I think I am up for renewal around March anyway.  Send me an invoice and ill renew early to get some funds coming your way.


On a sidenote, we have one of our guys coming to the tow show for the first time- His name is Bill. He is now signed up here as a member as of last week.  Ill make sure he stops and shakes your hand at the meet n greet on friday night,  The rest of our crew wont be making it down this year.

Thanks, matching funds were suppose to end November 15. But the Supporter has extended to offer an additional week. I think we may just make goal by the end of November. Have not had time to get the broken mac on a monitor yet. After Baltimore I will get on that task. Hope to see several of you there.
