I'm still here......

Just a short note to let everybody know I'm still here and following matters as best as I can.

I've been dealing with a few system hardware issues (laptop DC power jack issues) but I am still hereabouts.

A few spats about COVID-19 aren't enough to keep me away from here! c99's stuck with me unless and until Monsieur le Conqueroo throws me out!!

Wink

Love and Peace to all!

Sean

p.s. Dedicated to the same Monsieur le Conqueroo:

@on the cusp

Glad you got your stuff fixed and can enjoy the fray.

Still workin' on getting my junk fixed ( Wink ) but am string-and-baling-wiring along as best I can.

For my current Asus K54C, any replacement DC power jack must come from China. It might even be closer to get something from dear janis b!

Point being: I'm not baling from here. I have a 3-digit user number and am quite proud of it!

(And I love all you folks!)

Things are scarcer here during this oppressing lockdown, but I will check.

Is this of any help?

I don't know yet; but the selection seems to be far better than I've yet found in North America. It'll take some digging to find out.

But again, thank you for your help researching it!

It may be or not, that the part needed is in stock here. If it is I would be able to have it delivered to my door in a matter of days by the most amazing courier system. How long it would take to arrive in CO at this time, I don't know .

No matter how hard you try. Biggrin

Thanks for the moral support and for checking in with us, Sean.

Note to c99ers: Anyone have a decent extra laptop laying around that we could get to than.

...and hear you're still with us. Best of luck with the old laptop. I've got one that needs to visit the repair shop too. I mainly use this 20 year old desktop...it is currently working anyway.

All the best and don't be a stranger!

I’ve been workin bout you and was getting ready to send you a message to see how you were.

Been thinking of doing a check in essay for those who have been too quiet whether lurking or something else.

I just picked up Sam and boy is she doing so much better. Taking her to her vet now and hopefully she will be home tonight. She says ‘hey’ and thanks for the well wishes!
