We have reached out to help a lot of people here at DKos. I hardly write diaries any more. It appears the last one was about The Nephew which in itself explains a lot. I am asking this community to help some one who has demonstrated heart, mind, body and soul the epitome of a commited democratic kossack.
Someone with more cachet than I, needs to see that we get a computer/laptop for puddycat.
Puddycat, you need a laptop. I have only had one for a year. They now do everything a desktop does with much less hassel. I have read about you standing for hours watching the vote counting and doing all the drudge work that needs to be done while watching and writing about all the strum and durn. I have learned a lot from your writing.
You do not need something you cannot carry to be repaired. You also need a good warranty. People here might verify if geeksquad is worth it. I can't tell and I have a two year policy.
I would do this for you myself if I could but right now I can't. I know what it is like to be without a computer. It is my window to the world and a year or so I went two months without one until I could save for the repair.
With all the things we have done for people on this site, no one has earned this more than puddycat. Best Buy and Fry's ads say we can get her a good lap top with warranty and geeksquad type stuff for less than a thousand dollars easily.
Someone needs to step up to the plate. They need to start a new diary about the how, what, and when. I am too technologically impaired to do it.
