Octane free pick up Bronx NY

Octane works--2 strips extra memory--every things works--i have to move on and get rid of it

free for pick up I live in the Bronx, NY on #2 train--i would consider shipping it but it would take time etc to find strong box and packing--would have to take cab to shipping point.

Re: blender install--need some advice

maybe i should start all over with my tar file so that the executable is in my path--a little confused about this but i understand the basic reasoning --how should i start over and make sure it is in my path?-
