    The Whirlwind Translite is in the mail to it's new owner!

    #302 3 months ago

    The Logic Probe has a new owner!

    Thanks everyone for your donations and prayers. I'm doing much better, well until I saw the bills start coming in

    But with your help and the help of God and Family I'll make it

    #303 3 months ago

    Re your bills; contatct the people and explain the situation, some of them may be willing to give you more time to pay

    #304 3 months ago

    How much do you want for the SNES? I have a buddy that wanted one and had trouble finding one. Shipped to 19808

    Also, glad to see youre on the mend

    That works out great once you have some money coming in. What some people don't realize is not everyone has a large "safety net" when things go bad and they are out of work for a period of time. What OP is looking for is some money to "hold him over" until he can start making some money on his own again. At that point - if he needs to - he can make arrangements to pay some stuff a little at a time.

    Go-Fund-Me is looking pretty good but he could still use a little more help!

    #309 3 months ago

    Oh received all the circuit breakers and happy to get 'em .... after blowing at-least 7 fuses on the last game I was working on they were the clear choice for me (28 pin header connector for a 25 pin header with no rejection key .... bad eyesight didn't help either )

    The Snes Classic is headed to it's new home!

    I never said anyone didn't know what they are talking about. Everyone's situation is a little different and some people get into a short term bind with money due to something outside of their control. As OP has stated all along - if you don't have an interest in helping him out that is just fine but I see no harm in him asking for a hand. OP sounds like a great guy that just had a little bad luck. Sadly he didn't reach his fund raising goal but what he did get should help him a good bit short term.

    Quoted from too-many-pins:

    The GoFundMe just reached 75% and I am so thankful to everyone here, all my Facebook friends, my IRL friends and my family. What a blessing everyone has been! I still have people bringing over food and driving me places I need to go. It's been faith strengthening and awesome!

    Even without hitting 100% I am now confident I can make it without going backwards to far. And with Gods help I should be back to work in less than a month and by 2 months hopefully back to almost normal. And if not , well I'll make it somehow. If this has taught me anything its taught me to see the positive in everything.

    Thanks again for all the help!

    #313 3 months ago

    Good luck reaching your goal

    #314 3 months ago

    I think it is time to give this a bump again. A few dollars will not break any of us but would sure help OP. Everyone please do what they can to help OP reach his goal. Even though he expects to get back to work in a month or so I am sure things will be tough for him over the next few months and every little bit will help.

    #315 3 months ago

    I sent him money directly, I dont deal with gofundme n stuffs, and thats after I didnt get the snes classic

    Once again, thanks so much for the kind words and support. It seems like everytime you post I get a bit more

    Thanks for your donation. I added it on the GoFundMe as an anonymous donation.

    I just read this and donated. All the best to you, Jonathan. I once spent 3 months in the hospital with a lot of broken bones. I know it's no fun, but it will get better. A few years from now it will be a great story!

    Thanks so much Dennis!

    My first AlphaNumeric was a Dr. Dude. I loved it! Your pins are some of the best I've ever played. I also love listening to you on Charlie's Podcast. You guys crack me up.

    I remember hearing about your accident. Glad you recovered from it. I'm sure I will look back and tell everyone one day about my "stupid" accident. LOL

    Went to the doctor today. I was in a bit of pain. Turns out I displaced the fracture in my right radius. I had a major pipe burst and tried to dig down to it with a pick axe and a shovel. I didn't do much before my neighbor saw me and took over. But apparently I hurt myself.

    I'm in braces with doctor's orders to do nothing for 2 weeks. Stinks but it is my fault. I hate asking for help but I should have sooner. God bless the kindness of my neighbor.

    Way too soon to be using a pick axe! Believe me I get it, you got stuff you need to do.. but you have got to be realistic about your capabilities. I’ve been stuck at home for two months after having radiation on my brain and I have had to swallow my pride a couple times and ask friends for help when I had a home project that I couldn’t do myself.

    Hope you heal up soon!

    What a fantastic neighbor you have!

    #323 89 days ago

    Dang brother. Saturday was a bad day for the both of us. I crashed a motorcycle doing 65 mph without a helmet on Saturday. I have internal brain bleeding and everyone is wondering how I am not dead. I hope we both recover asap.

    It is going to take 12 months + for your bone and skin to get back to full strength
    Every time you over do it, it will set back your recovery by 3 weeks

    damn, no offense but I never understood anyone riding a motorcycle without a helmet. Glad you're still kicking to tell about it.
