    From Mike Powell@454:3/105 to ALL on Sun Apr 26 11:04:00 2020
    I have received a couple of emails from Daryl. The first indicated that he
    was having some severe issues with his network mail tossing. The second indicated that he has suffered some storm related damage again, this time
    to the UPS that protects his BBS equipment.

    He is feeling pretty down about it and, for the immediate future, will be absent.

    Maybe calling his board "Thunderbolt BBS" is not such a good idea.

    I guess Lightning Rod would be an even less lucky choice.

    Yes, appears the attitude is he gets kicked, down for a bit licking
    wounds but figures out how to get back up and fight back. I'm not sure
    but I think one of the two original UPSs was damaged and the other is
    going to be used for a spare/remote computer. The two replacement
    computers are supposed to be arriving today or tomorrow. (It's probably
    like trying to explain the computers and UPSs here - complicated and
    confusing with written text.)

    Agree. LIS it's sort of the get knocked down, OK, enough is enough I
    give up, ...no, I will not give up! and he comes back fighting.

    Good news is last he mentioned he was getting either a new computer or upgrading one, with a shop doing the work.

    Nancy,

    I think that light is a train about to run me over.

    How optimistic... <G>

    And while it seemed sarcastic, sometimes I've wondered if it was true.

    Not really surprising... From what I've seen, once a sysop, it gets
    into one, and never lets go... ;)

    This is true.

    You certainly aren't the only one I've known that was that way... :)

    It's like any other hobby as well.

    I received an e-mail from Daryl Stout saying he was invloved in a multi- vehicle crash last week - he's OK -- with aches and minor injuries --
    and the others involved are also not too seriously injured. His car is
    totaled -- so yet another expense. His e-mail follows:

    Quick Summary of Jan. 7, 2021 Multi-Vehicle Wreck that I was involved
    in:

    The photos named Jan 7 2021 Wreck (A-E), are damage photos from my
    car, that was involved in a multi-vehicle wreck (besides mine, another
    car, plus a pickup truck hauling a trailer). I basically was rear-ended
    on the right rear of the car (photos A and B) by the a vehicle, causing
    my vehicle to spin out of control on the wet pavement. I crossed the
    center line, and was hit by a second vehicle. The vehicle that hit me
    careenef into a utility pole, after hitting another vehicle head on.

    My goal after the initial shock was to get the car off the road before
    I got hit again. My airbags did not deploy, but they did in the other
    vehicles.

    With my legs shaking violently, I got out of the car, got my walker to
    steady myself, and got the cellphone to call 911. Unfortunately, with
    the weather (it was light rain at the time, and the roads were wet),
    the cellphone networks may have been overloaded, as I got dropped. I
    got called back, and I told them what had just happened. They said that
    they had personnel on the way. A squadron chief from the fire
    department, 2 police cars, and 2 ambulances responded.

    I was not charged in the wreck, as I got rear ended, then hit by
    another vehicle. The vehicles involved were mine, a pickup truck
    hauling a trailer, and another vehicle. The driver that rear-ended me
    was cited for negligence, as it started the chain reaction wreck.

    At least one individual was ambulatory to a local hospital for
    treatment...but there were no fatalities in the wreck. I ended up going
    to a chiropractic clinic, who works with the insurance company of the
    driver who was charged in the wreck (it wasn't me), for chiropractic
    treatment on Jan. 8, but I had to be transported by Uber to and from
    the facility. I have a follow-up on Jan. 11.

    My car had to be taken to Gwatney Collision Center. Unfortunately,
    with the car being 17 years old, and the amount of damage, it may end
    up being declared "a total loss". That leaves me without transportation.
    I didn't have a rental car deal on my policy due to cost ($1150 a month
    on disability doesn't go very far). So, I'm trying to obtain a rental
    car, as I know I can't get a used car for under $5000. I may end up
    going to court to sue for damages, pain, suffering, and inconvenience.

    Call the other person's insurance company in the morning and tell them you
    want them to cover the cost of a rental car. It's their drivers' fault, they need to reimberse you for your loss.

    As for cheap cars, they're around.

    Yep, they are -- sometimes very nice ones. Last summer I looked at an
    Explorer that was like new for $2500, and was very sad that I could not
    get comfortable with how the seat sets, so passed on it.

    Anyway, glad Daryl is okay!

    Hi Nigel!

    My car had to be taken to Gwatney Collision Center. Unfortunately,
    with the car being 17 years old, and the amount of damage, it may end
    up being declared "a total loss". That leaves me without transportation.
    I didn't have a rental car deal on my policy due to cost ($1150 a month
    on disability doesn't go very far). So, I'm trying to obtain a rental
    car, as I know I can't get a used car for under $5000. I may end up

    Call the other person's insurance company in the morning and tell
    them you want them to cover the cost of a rental car. It's their
    drivers' fault, they need to reimberse you for your loss.

    Will pass both on to Daryl. Thanks!

    Ky,

    Anyway, glad Daryl is okay!

    Yeah, I could've been hurt or killed...the car can be replaced...
    and it will be. :)
