Status Update – March 17th, 2016

Danny February 2016 - Leaving for L.A.

                                                    Danny February 2016 – Leaving for L.A.

Welcome back, My Dear Shoevians, to The Other Shoe. I am dropping by, today, just to keep all of you, My Dear Shoevians, up to date on the status of my; writing, blog and publishing. Today, at about 1PM, I dropped off my ‘Writing Computer’ (the computer that I have all my writing, publishing, and animation software… on) at HB Computerz for the replacement of the motherboard. I am holding my breath… keeping my fingers crossed… and thankful that (prior) to dropping it off I backed-up all my documents and pictures.

.

This is a very tense and trying time, my Dear Shoevians, for this budding writer/publisher. This is THE computer that I wrote; ALL 675+ articles that are The Other Shoe, every page of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ (my teen-preteen scare novel), and every single line of ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ (including the creation of Rattopia back in 2009). This computer holds a very special place in my writing zeitgeist and I am hoping beyond hope that it is returned to me working and ready for another ten years of writing.

.

Well, that is the end of this Status Update and I am hoping that I get the computer back, soon, so that I can continue my writing. I am very happy that, at this point, I have written and published THREE articles, this week. I am going to try to write… with my tablet… or a ‘barrowed’ computer, over the weekend. If not, just as soon as I have my computer back, I will push to get off another status update, and return to my regular writing schedule.

.

Thank you, all, for your; kindness, understanding, and support while I am working to reestablish my blog… and my writing and publishing endeavors.

.

Thank you!

.

Repairs, Thanks, Props, and My Return!

Danny Hanning

.

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. In my last article, the very first since my computer problem, I expressed my “Deep and Heartfelt Thanks” to all of you, My Dear Shoevians,that donated to my ‘Computer Repair Fund’. Today, my reason for writing is twofold. First, I wanted to share the proof that the donations I accepted actually did go for repairing my ‘writing computer’ (my HP DV 9500t CTO Notebook Computer). So, I present to you, My Dear Shoevians, scans of the receipts from H.B. Computerz.

.

.

As I explained, on Facebook and via; personal messages, emails and phone calls Amir (the owner ofH.B. Computerz) quoted me a price of:

.

  • $195.00 for motherboard repair )parts included)
  • $130.00 for screen repair (parts included)

.

As it turned out, the computer could be (simply) repaired and there was no need to replace the motherboard. However, the monitor did need to be replaced, and Amir gave me a great deal.

.

.

Second, I wanted to take the time (right here, today) to express my genuine gratitude to Amir, Samand all the staff at H.B. Computerz. I could tell that Amir, and all his technical staff, took their work very seriously and treated every customer with respect. Each and every time that I called I was helped expeditiously and professionally. I have to tell you, My Dear Shoevians, that that has become a rarity in America. This level of service and professionalism is (now) the exception and not the rule. That is unfortunate, and the major reason that I have taken the time to write this article of“Thanks!”. As well, I wanted to make sure that all of you, My Dear Shoevians, that live here in Southern California (mostly South L.A. and North Orange county) that there is a great place to have your computer work preformed.

Now, H.B. Computerz is not limited to just repairing computers. Rather than just mention all the services that they provide, here is a listing from their web site (you can go to their web site by clicking on their name anywhere in this article, or on any of the stickers and/or business cards).

.

.

As you can see, MY Dear Shoevians, if you have a computer or data need, either personal of corporate, H.B. Computerz has you covered. Just to make sure that I have made my point:

.

Amir, THANK YOU for your complete and professional service on my laptop computer. THANK YOU!

.

I hope that Amir, Sam and all the technical support and sales personnel have a chance to see this article. Their service has been very important to me, as it has given me back my Voice on the Internet! With my four blog locations:

.

.

I will be expressing my “THANKS!” and I will be posting free advertisement for the next month… or so. It is just my way for showing my genuine gratitude for your professional work, and the great dealyou gave me on the repairs. You can rest assured that any and all computer work and repairs I need in the future? I will be taking my business to H.B. Computerz.

.

That brings us to the end of this article for today, October 15th, 2015. Now… for a little blog business.

.

My Dear Shoevians, I wanted to take a moment and touch base with all of you. When I posted my article of heartfelt thanks to those of you, My Dear Shoevians, that kindly donated to my ‘Writing Computer Repair Fund’. I indicated that I would be returning to a regular publishing schedule as soon as was possible. I would like to express my sincere apology for not reaching that goal, as of yet.

.

I am not too sure as to why I have encountered the physical problems I have… since the return of my computer. I know that last; Friday, Saturday and Sunday I spent ‘out and about’ taking care of errands (like picking up the repaired computer, purchasing a new UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) to protect my newly repaired computer, cleaning my writing desk, cleaning my power chair, and doing nine loads of laundry.

.

What ever the reason, I awoke Monday morning with both my hands swollen up like two ‘hand shaped’ balloons. I could barely move my fingers, and there was an extreme amount of pain; in my hands, in my neck, and in my lower back. This difficulty has been prohibitive, with regards to reaching my goal of writing and publishing on a regular schedule. However, my hands are improving and I hope to meet this schedule starting this next week.

.

I thank you for your understanding and support. I have continued to do my research for images and news on; Curiosity on Mars, the New Horizons Flight, and more and more images from the Hubble Space Telescope. Let me assure you, My Dear Shoevians, that there IS plenty of new and inspiring material for me to share. Just as soon as my pain subsides, my hands return to their regular size and I have full dexterity back? I will begin the work of returning to a regular writing and publishing schedule. Hang in there!

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. It has been some time since my last post, but I am back and I am ready to write. However, first things first!

.

The people who have made the repair of my ‘Writing Computer’ possible, well are just too numerous to name here today. Thousands responded with emails and messages of; support, kindness, understanding and caring. These voices reached out and gave me strength. Yet, out of themasses a handful stood out and lent a helping hand. I would be gravely remiss if I did not give them a mention here, today.

.

The following men have reached outside their own lives, and through acts of generosity bridged the miles between us and touched the life of another human being in a way that will never be forgotten.

.

Ian Cottier

Ian Cottier

(Ian Cottier)

.

Ian Cottier – I met Ian through Facebook, and my life has been graced by his friendship. When I wrote of my problems with my computer, Ian did not hesitate to dig deep and bridge the ocean between us with this generosity. “Thank you very much, Ian!”

.

William Booth

William Booth

(Kinky Friedman & William Booth on the right)

.

William Booth – Bill and I meet though mutual friends, and our mutual love of the Great State of Texas. Bill has returned to Texas, I have stayed here in California. Though thousands of miles separate us physically, our love of ‘good governance’, and a shared dream of a better and more prosperous America (for all) bridge the physical world that separates us. When Bill learned of myneed for assistance getting my writing computer repaired. Bill did not hesitate to reach out and help.“Thank you, Bill!”

.

Jack Wright

Jack Wright

(Jack Wright)

.

Jack Wright – Of all the friends I have listed here, Jack and I have just met. We are both friends of William, and when we found ourselves standing together against intransigence and intolerance a friendship was forged. I was very much surprised by Jack’s generosity, for we have only known each other a short time. It just goes to show you, that a friend that reaches out, when you are in need, is a friend in deed! “Thank you, Jack!”

.

Jason Kleppinger

Jason Kleppinger

(Jason Kleppinger)

.

Jason Kleppinger – Though last in mentions, here today, Jason has been my friend the longest. I meet Jason back in the late 90’s. As with all the friends I have shared here, today. I met Jason via the internet. Funny that all the friends and benefactors, mentioned here today, I have never met any of them in person! Jason reached out all the way from Iowa, just to lend me a helping hand. “Thank you, Jason!”

.

I must admit that I am deeply moved by the generosity of the men mentioned here, today. Thoughnone of them, have I met in person, they have not… did not hesitate to help when they say a friend in need. Here with all of you here at my side, My Dear Shoevians, I would like to express to them my most deep and heartfelt… … … “THANK YOU!”

.

With every word that I write, from here on out, and every article that I publish. I want them to knowthat I think of their generosity. For, with out which, my voice would be silenced. Because of their kindness, support and caring I am able to continue my work. Continue; writing, sharing and publishing here at The Other Shoe.

.

Finally, I would like to express my thanks to the Owner and workers at H.B. Computers. Amir, the owner, gave me a great deal on the repairs that my computer needed. The work they did returned to me my writing computer in great working order. In the coming week I will be preparing and posting advertisements for H.B. Computers that will appear along the sidebar of each and every one of my four blog locations. “Thank you EVERYONE at H.B. Computers!”

.

Well, that about wraps it up, for today. My Dear Shoevians, the past two days have been terriblydemanding, of me physically. I have; spent hours out in 94+ degree heat, helped with shopping at several different stores, and assisted with nine loads of laundry.

.

This has left me sore… well all over my hands… my neck… my back, and more. I simply must rest, and recuperate, before I begin my writing and publishing in earnest. I will return, in just a matter of days, with publications of; ‘The Mars Report’, ‘Lost in Space’, ‘Election 2016’, ‘American Governance – What We Need Today!’, and ‘A Week in Review’!

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

                     Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. First, I would like to extend my heartfelt “THANKS!” to Jason Kleppinger for his donation of $25.00 to my ‘Computer Repair Fund’. This is my very first donation and I am hoping that, with the publication of this article, I might reach more of you, My Dear Shoevians, and convince you that my need is great and genuine. In this second article, regarding the death of my writing computer, I am including images of the; desktop, Device Manager, Device Tab and others as evidence that (in fact) my laptop (writing) computer is damaged and does need repair.

.

.

Since I first wrote of this problem I have been able to get two (over the phone) estimates for the cost of the repair. The estimates (so far) range from $225.00 to $460.00. Of course, I am going to take the computer to the repair company that offers to do the work for the lowest estimate. So far, that is $2250.00, but that is “sight unseen” and could go up (slightly) more if there is more wrong with the laptop. My Dear Shoevians, I have run several diagnostic programs on this laptop and have come to the conclusion that only one problem exists. The ‘Display Adapter’ is not working. I have: rebooted, removed the battery and let computer stand (without power) for two hours then rebooted, booted up without the ‘Repeater-Extension’ module connected, and ‘Uninstalled/Reinstalled’ the display adapter twice. All to no avail. The image below shows the ‘Device Manager’ with the error indicated with the ‘Display Adapter’.

.

In order to see the image better, just click on the image and it will take you to a full screen display of the image, this is true for all the image in this article and all images on my blog(s). You can clearly see the Yellow Triangle with the black apostrophe indicating that the problem device is the ‘Display Adapter’. This would be a very small problem with a desktop computer. Just as easy as buying a new (or used on eBay) Graphics card and installing said card into the computer. However, this is a laptop computer and that means that the ‘Display Adapter’ is built into the motherboard. That means, in order to fix the problem, the motherboard must be replaced.

.

The image, above, shows the ‘Display Adapter’ tab in the ‘Device Manager’ showing that there is a problem with that device and Windows has not/will not start the device until the problem is resolved. As I have indicated I have gone through any/all trouble shooting for this problem I could find; one the Windows web site, Tom’s Hardware web site, and the nVidia web site, too. I am very much certain that the replacement of the motherboard will resolve the problem I am having, and return to me my writing laptop computer.

My Dear Shoevians, I deeply apologize for this… intrusion into your life… asking for help/assistance is not something that I enjoy or relish. Matter of fact, it really rubs me the wrong way and I work very hard to avoid these situations. However, this has become an unavoidable reality in my life. Again, I deeply apologize for writing and asking for your financial assistance in this matter.

Again, ‘THANK YOU JASON!!!” for your generous contribution of $25.00. With ONLY F I V E more contributions of $50 or more I will have the funds I so desperately need to pay for this much needed repair. I have a real and deep bound with this machine. Over the past seven years I have written; over 650 articles, TWO questions USED BY Bob Schieffer on ‘Face the Nation’ (to question Sen. Mitch McConnell and Speaker Rep. John Boehner), 200+ pages of ‘The Horror in Smithville’, 100+ pages of ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia – The Healing Light’, newsletters, business cards, fliers and a brochure design (all for Hanning Web Wurx and The Other Shoe).

With your contribution(s) (via PayPal) just use enzomatrix@earthlink.net and Daniel Hanning. The repair company HB Computers will be the company making the repairs on my HP DV9500t CTO laptop computer. This laptop computer, when new, cost me $2,000.00 and it still works incredibly well (aside from the display adapter not working), and with this repair I am certain that it will serve me another five years and another 500+ articles plus two more books in the ‘The Horror in Smithville’ series and two more books in the ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ series.

.
My Dear Shoevians,
I do hope that you consider the information I have shared, look at the desktop and device manager images, and PLEASE consider assisting me in this venture of repairing my (desperately needed) writing computer. I have priced new laptop computers and found that a laptop (17.3′ screen, Geforce Video Card, three USB ports, extender port [an HP QuickDock 2.0 Docking Station – which I OWN] and a full sized keyboard with number keypad) would cost me between $2,000.00 and $3,000.00. This, investment, of $225 – $350 is a fraction of that amount and well spent.

.

Again, please go to PayPal to make your donation to Daniel Hanning enzomatrix@earthlink.net to help me get up and writing and publishing again… soon. Thank you for your time and effort… THANK YOU for your consideration and kindness… THANK YOU for EVERYTHING you do to HELP!

.

As always, if you ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ this article, via your social media outlets, it will greatly increase the chances I meet my goal and obtain my working writing laptop… Again!

.

P.S. Dear Family, Friends, Facebook Friends, and Followers of The Other Shoe​;
BELOW is a scan of the receipt for my $50 payment for Diagnosis &/or Deposit towards REPAIR of my ‘Writing Computer’ with HB Computers in Huntington Beach.
.
I am still quite berfet of the FUNDS I NEED to PAY for said repairs… … but I just HAD to FIND OUT; IF it can be repaired, HOW MUCH it would COST to Repair, and WHAT is WRONG with this (eight year old) writing computer. My Dearest Family, Friends and Followers… Over the past FIVE YEARS I have written and PUBLISHED more than 650 articles at my FOUR blog locations. ALL these articles (along with one NOVEL 75% DONE and ANOTHER Novel 25% DONE)… I REALLY DO N E E D this computer to write and publish. Without this machine… my voice WILL fall SILENT.
.
ANY amount of help WILL H E L P! I AM sorry to have to ask for help… I am just unable to work… and this month I am BACK to my Oncologist…
.
PLEASE take a moment… and PLEASE consider lending me a HAND?
.
Thank you,
Danny Hanning​

.

.

P.P.S – The Owner of H.B Computers told me he WILL “accept payments from ANYONE that calls and offers to HELP with the cost of  REPAIRS. He ACCEPTS ALL major credit cards and WILL apply ANY/ALL monies towards the REPAIR COST(S). If you want to HELP.. but not to send ME money? The Phone Number is right here.. Call and ASK FOR AMIR! Thank you!
