I am told Tex is making good progress.
His computer was destroyed in the fire, and he's going to have a long recovery.

i've requested that Tex's family (nina) set up an account so we could all get together to get Tex a laptop. I lost a house to a fire about ten years ago and the insurance was a pain in the butt, and slow as ****, and i wasn't even hurt. I am assuming that he's going to be in the hospital for quite awhile yet, and i bet a laptop would make his time there alot better. Besides, we'll hear from him sooner...

Thanks, Glassman. Dad will be so touched. If it happens quickly enough, I can deliver it to him next week when I return to Texas. I think a goal of $800-$1000 would get him a nice, dependable machine, don't you? And since he won't be settled back in his house for some months, a laptop will be the perfect thing.

Since I have no way of projecting what you guys will end up raising, I guess if there's a huge surplus, rest assured that it will go towards his mounting medical costs and costs of living, as he does not have medical insurance and won't be able to work for some time. I will report the progress of the fund daily. I know you guys like fast, frequent updates.

You're a great, supportive community for one another. What a blessing.

Sincerely,
NdT

There are also a bunch of responses on the stock side of allstocks in case you were not aware.

Thanks, IWISH -- which thread? I'd like to print out what's happened for him so far and mail it to him at the hospital this week...

Glassman, You are the type of person that people need when they are down. This is my opinion formed from everything I've seen you post as well as what you are trying to do now to get TEX the new laptop.
TEX can get the new lap top to talk with us. But according to his daughter, TEX has no insurance.
Therefore I would like to make a challenge to all of the well wishers and friends of TEX on the board.
I will put $100 into a fund. Glassman, you pick the place to put it. Then everyone who matches my $100 has a vote as to what stock to invest in.
Glassman, you determine, from the best of the best of the people on the board, who picks the stock. Take all of the proceeds. Roll the dice. Proceeds go to TEX.
What you think?

I did the search for the post on tex on the stock side and it shows but it will not pull them up.

If there is any way they can be pulled up and maybe placed on this side to make it easy for nina-de-tex. Thanks.

i like your enthusiasm rk,
Tex may not have health coverage, if so?
i missed that,
but i am pretty sure he has homeowners...

we need to give Tex time to heal right now...

there are philanthropic people we could approach on his behalf if this is catastrophic for him, but we need to wait and allow him to make decisions, in the meantime, most charitable organisations sell gifts of stocks immediately for a very good reason...

there are some very good stock pickers here, but actually choosing buy and sell points even on good stocks can be very difficult, especially with half the board looking over your shoulder, and there can only be one person on the buy-sell key...

you know, to my knowledge? Cramer has never released any actual proof of his trading ability? i like the guy we see on TV, he makes alot of good picks, but i have to say, i expect Jim to stroke out at any time [Eek!] ...

BTW? i am not doing this laptop thingy, we all are... quite a few did something like this for me once and the goal is for Tex to be able to do this for somebody else in the very near future....

I pitched in as well, and glass, that was a great idea.

I can't believe he has no health insurance and has been in the hospital for 5 or 6 weeks and counting. Of course I hope for a full physical recovery, but secondly, I hope he comes out okay on the financial side as well.

Get better Tex, we miss you!

I'll put it up on TGL on IHUB, I know Tex posted there soemtimes, and I have done the same, but just glancing at some of the other boards he posted on, I'm a total outsider there so don't feel comfortable asking on other boards.

I would have never found this had one of the posts not come from Tex's account directly. I have been wondering what happened to him, he never replied to a PM and I saw that he hadnt posted in weeks. I decided to check again today and found this thread. I had hoped it wasnt something like this. [Frown]

I see now that he is "making good progress" but im still crushed by the news. I'll be watching more closely now and hope for a speedy recovery!!

Tex is a very good man...grumpy and bluntly honest at times, but easily one of my favorites from here and I have a ton of respect for him. Please pass on my best wishes!

Try posting it on I-Hubs Rules and Regs board. That was Tex's board, and Nina(his daughter) also posted a message there.

Wow, you all.

As promised, I'm here to post your progress. Here's what you've done in less than 24 hours:

NET: $482.86 (that's less the paypal fees, of course.)

I can't wait to see his face when I tell him where his shiny new laptop came from. He's going to be stunned.

I have also posted the link on Rockband Inc. (The other board he mod's for on I-hub.)

Alright guys, we're off to a good start but we can do better.

Time for a PM chain. If you know anyone who knows Tex it is time to message them and tell em what we are trying to do here.

$1000 for a new computer is a good goal but lets not forget what hospital stays can do to a family budget. If we can go higher (and based on the response so far I think we can) then lets kick butt and get TEX taken care of!

actually i can't take credit for the idea, there's a couple of other posters that nudged me here. all i did was call best buy to ask about how to get a gift card fund there and they gave me a runaround and eventually lost me in their computerised phone system, so i asked Nina to open a paypal account... which was easier (for me) anyway, and posted it.
