URGENT FROM ROBERT: Please help a family who recently lost their son

A friend of mine from high school's best friend had their young son pass away tragically last week.  She is raising $2500 to help her friend with final expenses.  A modest GoFund me goal.

 

I apologize for coming forward this way, and I promise this is not something I will do often.  However, if you are able to make a donation to help this family, I would really appreciate it.  I would consider it a favor to me.  They are short of their goal.  I would love to see what we could do collectively from the members of S4GRU.

 

Since I deal with you guys so much day in and day out, I know how generous you are.  If we all gave $5, they could easily meet their goal.  Or if most of us gave $10.  Or a good chunk of us gave $25.  And if you can give more, well, I can't think of a more worthy goal than to show that there are good people out there that are complete strangers reaching out to a hurting family in need.

 

Thanks for your consideration.  I appreciate being able to hang out with such a great group of people every day online!

 

Robert

Donation sent, also is there a deadline?  Even though I already donated, I am more than able to donate a few dollars more by this weekend.

There is no deadline.  If they haven't met their goal by this weekend, please feel free to donate again.  I'll keep you all posted.  Thank you for your generosity!

Thanks again everyone who has contributed so far.  They are half way to their goal now.  Please consider a donation.  It is not too late.  The final amount will determine which head stone they will be able to get.  I am so grateful to you all who have donated.  Their family is just astonished that so many people they don't even know are helping them in their time of grief.

I can't imagine the family's grief. Only close family and friends can truly help in this situation, but I hope our contributions can help give a small glimmer of happiness in such a dark period for this family.

I made a donation as well.....no matter how rough I or anyone else may think we have things at times, or even oftentimes in some cases (I speak from a personal standpoint there), it is things like this that bring us back to the reality of just how blessed and fortunate so many of us really are and take that fact for granted by comparison to what these folks are now having to go through.  My heart goes out to all family and friends involved.

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
