Personal Assistance Humbly Requested

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

So I use a Mac that controls everything for OZx and everything else I do around the traps in regards to my servers etc, yesterday this machine gave up the ghost and today I took it to the repair centre and it is almost as expensive to repair as it is to buy a new one. Luckily I use continuous backup on the time machine and thanks to a dear friend of mine, I now have access again to everything having borrowed his laptop.

Now due to my work issues, I cannot afford to outright buy a new one unless I get some sort of loan happening, so I am going to humbly ask for your assistance first before I have the guts to try to convince my wife lol I need a loan for it. 

My idea is this, whatever comes in in assistance, if any, I will put back in the OZx pot for server costs over a time span of 5-6 months so that when we do a donation drive next year, there is a lower target to achieve.

I hope this all makes sense and does not offend, I feel awkward enough asking but I really do not wish to go and get a loan.

Any help is much appreciated and humbly accepted, thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Hi Jay,

  As a confirmed "Mac-ophile" myself (iMac 21.5 and MacBook Air 12"…plus a new iPad Pro 9.5" and preorder on iPhone X)  I feel your pain.:(  I assume there will be some type of funeral or service.

I will send a donation in leu of flowers.

I don't know what to say guys, other than give you all a humble and heartfelt thank you 

I really felt awkward doing this and you guys have also made me feel better about it all so I would like to thank you for that as well
