Back In Business

Wow. What an unpleasant experience this has been. Fortunately, my new adapter finally came today, and with a little work, I got it to function properly. However, my PowerBook is still on its way out. The battery is completely dead and won't charge anymore, meaning that if the adapter is unplugged (which happens very easily), everything shuts off instantly. I don't think I can wait until I have a job to get a new computer. This is some serious shit here.

In closing, let me just say that those were the longest ten days of my life. I feel like a junkie finally getting a fix after going cold turkey for a while. When I got the computer to stay on, I actually collapsed onto my bed in a fit of joyous laughter.

I'll have more on my week and a half of time killing in a later post. Right now, I need to eat.

After further fiddling and about a dozen accidental shutdowns, I caved and ordered a new battery. Eventually, it's going to be cheaper to just get a new computer. This thing is begging to be put out of its misery.

May I recommend a sledgehammer or a long walk off a short GW Bridge?
