Today, my computer started malfunctioning.
I'm currently unable to do the newsletter. It's not surprising. The computer is seven years old. I figured this was coming. I use the computer for OpEdNews an average of 12 hours a day.
I need to replace it with a newer one. Ideally, I'd like to get a new or close to new 13" inch Macbook air, gold or pro with retina display and 512 GB SSD hard drive and 16 gigabytes of ram. At the minimum I need one with a retina display and 8 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD hard drive. Ideally, I'd like the Macbook air. And I need to do it really fast. prices range between $1019 and $1269 plus warranty of $249
So, can you help? I need it fast and money is, as always, very tight. If you've thought about making a larger donation, this would be the time. $100, $200, $250, or more would really make a difference. We need it fast, so I can get back up to speed.
Meanwhile, while I'm working this out, if you have an older fully working macbook, that would help.

This is really urgent. I wish our finances weren't so tight, but they are.
PS, I'll be borrowing a computer to get a minimum amount of work done. But it's not going to enable me to do what I normally do.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.
