Support Available, It's Almost Show Time!

We now have an IT expert, Rob, volunteering here with us. He was able to display his skills as soon as he arrived by fixing my two CPUs which conveniently both would not turn on as soon as he got here. It seems as though something happened with the Windows operating system in both of them, so he downloaded an operating system that is new to me called Ubuntu. But this only worked for one. Nonetheless, I was thankful to have a working computer. He then suggested that we take hard drive out of one and put it in the other, compressing both computers (or the hard drives at least) into one! I was amazed! Now both of these CPUs that I was juggling between are both in one computer. What a pleasant surprise out of an unpleasant situation!

With Rob's skills, I think we could do some compra venta shopping, which is essentially pawn shop shopping. We could find parts and construct them into the best use of the parts. I think that with his skills, we can save some money, is what I am trying to say. However, we have no money to start with even to get cheap parts. Peralta's presence is still needed more to launch the business. But we are moving in the right direction and I don't think it will be long from here before we have a business up and running.

Thank you for your support!
