Do we have Taz's address so we can send him letters and packages, or does Taz not wish to share?

Right now it looks like I will be working at the American Airbase in Bagram (supporting all nations efforts via various investigative duties). I am training now and scheduled to leave in September sometime. Once know exactly where I am going, I will post an address, hopefully somebody will keep me updated on how our Bruins are doing. Thanks to all for the best wishes.

As some of you may know, my DVD recorder decided to not work anymore. It doesn't recognize discs. I tried the disc cleaner and when that didn't work I took it apart and cleaned the lens with a q tip but it didn't even look dusty to begin with so I don't think that's the problem. It is in fact old though, upwards to 4 or 5 years and it's been through a lot until I was introduced to DVR. However I need a new one to record DVDs for Kirk and searched long and hard for the cheapest one I could find and settled on this one for $60. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=160156869370

Here is where we stand right now

$115.15
($60.00) DVD recorder
----------
$50.15
----------
----------

I have a TON of DVD's at the moment right now though, and a ton of cases and envelopes so the $90 should take us very far.

Is there anyone on here that could do the same for Taz? I had asked Silva before, but it would take too long for him to make a second copy. I'd do it, but I don't have the equipment nor the know how to do it.

Any volunteers?

What is it you are looking for? I have DVD burners and all but if its $ you want for a DVD burner for TAZ I will help too. Just not sure how what to do way out here in Windsor Ontario! Just PM me if you need anything.

I don't have the capabilities to record TV yet but am looking into it. Soon I hope.

I have a DVD recorder, but might miss the first two games of the season as I may be traveling for work. Otherwise, I could easily record each game. Let me know if I'm needed.

$115.15
($60.00) DVD recorder
----------
$50.15
----------
----------


Ok, this DVD business has been driving me absolutely nuts the last few weeks. My DVD recorder had broken. I promised Kirk Pats games and Red Sox games plus Bruins games.

I bought a DVD recorder off eBay for $60 because it was a great price. Well you get what you pay for. The DVD player only plays DVD-Rs that are 2x or 4x. What this means is, you can't buy them in stores or online ANYWHERE because it's an old format. You can buy them at costco or Fry's stores.

I complained to the eBay seller and he sent me 2 discs to prove some actually work in the recorder. He has the discs so I just bought 100 off of him for $60. That'll take us pretty far.

The problem is now i have 100 compatible discs and close to 100 that don't work with the new recorder.

However, I am going to try and see if I can use my laptop and copy Bruins games that I record on TV onto the other type of DVD and send a copy to Taz as well. I'm not sure if this will work yet but I will try.

Right now I have 2 DVD's so I can definitely record Fri and Sat Bruins games for Kirk. By then hopefully the other 100 DVDs come in the mail. I will try the copying for Taz as well.

Hopefully all of this stuff works because it has really stressed me out the past couple weeks!

Here is where the fund stands
$50.15
($60.00) 100 DVDs
----------
(-9.85)
----------
----------

as you can see, we are in the Red right now. We will need money to ship out to Kirk and (hopefully if all goes well) Taz too.

If anyone wants to help out with the fund, the paypal address is bruinsdvdsforkirk@hotmail.com

any donation is helpful

I'd also appreciate if a Mod can edit the title of this thread right now to "Looking for donations"

If we don't get any

This board is absolutely unbelievable!

I posted this morning at 12:30 AM and only 12 hours later six people have donated a combined $270 Paypal charged fees on this but I'll take the fees as part of my donation

Here is where the fund stands
(-9.85)
$270.00 (donations
----------
$260.15
----------
----------

This board is absolutely unbelievable
this is a LOT of money for shipping and DVDs. Right now I have 100 compatible DVDs for the recorder on the way and I have a lot of DVDs on the side right now too. I'll record the games for Kirk (pats/sox playoffs/bruins) and also make copies for Taz as long as technology permits it. However I think the DVD's should be able to be copied by my laptop.

We do not need any more donations for a whileeee now, this is enough to keep us going for a long long time

This board is an amazing place with amazing generous people

Wow, the generous, caring people here are incredible. As are you Silva for spearheading this project again. Let me know if you ever need help recording, especially if there are conflicts with Sox and B's on at the same time.
