I made it back after a little hiatus. On top of that, one of my co-workers passed away on 3/6 and I known him for five years. The video was recorded as raw footage two days later. At this rate, it is hard to battle an extreme degree of grief, depression and adaption to unexpected changes. Welcome again to the real world, I guess?!

With a little bit of computer knowledge and a decent budget, it is obvious that you can't always find a computer that works right out of a dumpster unless you're that damn lucky! What would you do with a trash picked computer? Make money off of it one time by pawning/selling it or what?!

 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

This is an interesting juxtaposition of subjects. It reminds me of the store in my home town that sells beds and bicycles. Anyway, that's not a critique just an observation.

My nephew was murdered on 3/6 two years ago. It's a shitty date for me too. Sorry to hear about your coworker. I hope you're able to work through it without getting into too dark of a place. Annndd.. nice score on the lappy.

That's a great find! That's a tough question. I guess it depends on how much I could get for it. I bummed around Austin, TX probally more than I would like to admit and when college was getting out we would find so much. Found a brand new 200$ keyboard, and cases of wine and booze, bunch of stuff. I did pawn the keyboard. Unbelievable what those kids throw away. But their loss our gain!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
