We just want to thank those who have responded. (in a nice way)
We now have access to a bunch of parts. (older parts but it's all we need)
Of course, we still dont have a number of parts (like hard drives and such)
but we will do what we can with what has been offered.
You have put us in a position that we can at least try to get a system
Thank you and we greatly appreciate your help and/or kind words.
I sincerely hope you dont live your life the way you talk in the
If you do, it is YOU that I feel bad for. You must not have alot of
I know that I wouldnt bother with people so hateful and spiteful.
Why not stop spending all your time complaining about people in the
groups that dont deserve it and go live your own life.

My fiancee, 1yo son and I were in Ottawa for 2 weeks for Christmas, only
to come back and find our car stolen and apartment broken into. Gone was the
new Dell Computer we just bought and our Pioneer Home Theatre set. We got
the car back, but the other stuff is never likely to show up.
Seeing as we had bought a new computer, we sold our old one for
next-to-nothing. Now, nothing is all we have. We need a computer because we
moved here to Edmonton in June of this year and we have no family here. It
is our only cost effective means of keeping in touch with our families. MSN
Messenger and a webcam have been our link back home and to the only people
I hate to ask, but I have no other option right now.
If you have any parts or a computer you are not using and dont mind
parting with, please let us know. It would be very much appreciated and we
would be in your debt.
Main things we are looking for:
Monitor - any size
Tower /w power supply
main board & cpu
(Onboard Vid, NIC and/or Sound is fine.
Saves trying to find them separate
unless ya have one of them to spare.
We could live with a P-233 no problem)
Keyboard/mouse - nothing fancy needed
Hard Disk / CD-Rom (again, nothing fancy)
(wouldnt mind a writer but will take anything and be happy with it)
As I said, I dont expect much, but any help we can get would be a godsend.
Thank you in advance for even taking the time to read this
