Could anyone use a Chromebook?

<< < (2/4) > >>

Jason:
Hey, if you still have it, I'd love to get that Chromebook from you. My friend is probably going to need it until she can afford a new PC. Hers is really acting up. I might be able to fix it still but it doesn't look good. If she ends up not needing it, I can give it to somebody else that needs something for browsing the web. I tend to knew a few people. Or I can give it back to you to pass on.

William:
Talking about Chromebook, I have HP Chromebook 11 G3 without battery.  Both original and replacement battery died, so I removed the battery.  If anyone wants it for free, I can bring it to our future meeting or BBQ (hint!).

Jason:
Cool, William. I'm guessing the battery probably costs close to the price of the Chromebook? Even it can be plugged in, I'm sure somebody might be able to use it. I see if anybody I know could use one that doesn't have a PC (or a notebook, obviously).

And yeah, would like to do that bbq soon. I'm thinking at this point that most, if not all, of us have gotten their first shot. I'd still socially distance but I'd have to get a car ride with someone (in the backseat) who may not want to take that risk. You should set a date gmiller and then do a post and see who can make it.

Hi Jason, no problemo!  I am up north right now, but will be back over the long weekend (I think).  I can arrange to drop it off to you then if you like.

I think a BBQ sounds great, and I think we need to be supportive of anyone who wants to socially distance, etc.  Whatever makes everyone feel comfortable.  Food, friends and chat.  That's what we need now.  We're not pariahs.

I'm open to whenever.  I've got a little portable coleman grill that I can bring to the cause, a couple of folding lawn chairs, and a cooler for beverages/food.  I've got a private butcher that does all my beef, chicken, turkey and lamb (all from Ontario).   I can make some awesome burgers, or do up some souvlaki, or do up some lamb, or do it all!  Whatever!  I'm game.

When are people available?  Jason, maybe you could start a poll to get everyone on the same page?  Perhaps 2 polls, one for location, and one for dates?  I'm ok to drive to Peterborough and I'm happy to pick someone up to get them there.
