I am TOTALLY overwhelmed: Updated again

I just don't know what to say.   I, just moments ago got a package through the mail, and I saw that it was from Jessy.  It was the package she said I should be expecting...but I wasn't expecting this !

You all are just too much, you know that?  How can I ever repay you all for this kindness?    I don't even know "who" was involved so I can thank you (except for Jessy).  The note enclosed in the package has no names on it.

I really am totally overwhelmed.
:..-...)  tears of joy for having such friends as you all....I hope I can someday pay you back for your kindnesses...
 My wife is in the pictures I took (before the camera batteries started to die).
I haven't booted it up yet...I want the batteries to be fully charged before use.
I added a picture of the note that was enclosed with the laptop (it had temporarily gotten misplaced).


 To all of you, whether you gave time, effort, contributed towards getting the laptop, or just made suggestions;  even those who didn't get to know about it ahead of time, but later wished they could have known,  you all are very special to me.  Thank you all.   For those I am sure of contributed, even if only a post, I will thank in my own way, individually. 

We really need a LOT more people like you all in the world, honestly.

Nice one, there are some really thoughtful people on this site :)
What was wrong with you before? (I saw the letter in the picture, I don't know what you are recovering from).

Thanks, yes, they ARE very thoughful and considerate.  I can't begin to thank them enough.

I was having terrible back problems. 

Thankfully, this time, I did not have to have the surgery.   I may not be so lucky next time.  
Congrats Goodhart!  (and everyone who contributed!)

This is incredible.... a benchmark in Instructables history!  It'll go down in the books forever!

Thanks, but it is still a bit overwhelming....

Thanks.  I can not thank everyone who considered this, helped with it, and even those that mention it later on, enough.  I am truly overwhelmed.

Good for you! Of all the people on Instructables who deserved it, I think it's you.

How is it I always miss out on these kind of kind schemes?
Goodhart (author)  Kryptonite8 years ago
 Thanks, I don't know if I "deserve it" or not, but I certainly do appreciate it. :-) 
Besides, as I have told others, if you wanted to participate and either were not informed or just could not, saying you wanted to later means JUST AS MUCH TO ME.  So, thank you too.  :-) 
Well it's great to see it's well recieved. :-)
