Has anyone been to the new computer shop located across from the stadium in Wellington, Aotea Quay? I have a friend who has very little money / is disable and out of work, and who is looking for bargains, especially a printer. Wondering if the shop is worth a look. Thanks.

I haven't been in there, but I have seen their ad in the Trade and Exchange. They have a website which I have visited but can't remember the url.

What sort of things does it want (other than a printer?)

Little money?...disabled?....out of work?

Metla, he has just turned 50 yrs and has been disabled since birth - spinabifida. He used to build and repair old PCs, back in the 486 days, but has not ventured into newer gear. Last week he gave his 486 system to the Salavation Army cuz no one would pay anything for it. Robert is an amazing guy - was voted Dad of the Year a couple of years ago; has a severely disabled daughter (mentally and physically) and a special needs son (both adopted). Robert is a friendly, gentle and kind man but has few mates. He delivers junk mail in his golf cart to make ends meet. It would be great if you could help him. You can contact him via this email address: macmalady [at] yahoo co nz - with dots in the spaces, etc. Thanks heaps.

No worries,ill get hold of him.

The printer in question is only a cannon sp2000 and i have used it 5 or six times,i'll chuck in a couple new ink catdridges.

The only other concern is its usb only.......Any idea if this would be an issue?

Spose i should just fire him off an email.

whats the point of crying out his life story, im sure if your friend out you were telling the PF1 world about this, he wouldnt be very happy at all.

Hey Josh you're just a big softie. Good one mate. PJ

Metla, I just talked with my friend and he is so very thankful. :) :)

He will reply to your email ASAP. USB is no problem. Also no problem, at all, with the description about him I posted above - he is not the sort of person to be bothered with such things; he has a heart of gold.

So Metla, where do I find a PF1 icon of an angel, or a halo to put next to your name? Good on ya mate!!!
