on the rain

Got up this morning and noticed the torrential downpour that is currently occuring. "That's weird" I thought. Then I realized that its Carnival, and thus goes the curse of buggy.

wheee!

MacOutfitters called. My laptop is all fixed and happy. I can come pick it up at anytime.

Anyone else feel like skipping out on rainy carnival and going up there?

back in my hands...

so I have my laptop back... yay! I can actually like log in and read my mail at will now instead of at the good graces of beststephi and sui66iy (both of whom I thank for allowing me to use their machines this last week).

It turns out that it was not a loose cable, nor was it a damaged screen. I had a bad logic board. It was probably defective all along and just got worse, which might explain why I had always had a problem waking it from a sleep. (that is apparently a possible symptom). Anyway, it was covered under warranty and now I have it back and it seems better than ever.

I also bought a LaCie firewire drive while I was out there. I will use this to back up and fix my desktop. The screwed up part is that after paying $300, I get home and it looks like someone had previously opened the box and swiped the CD of free software. So I need to call and try and acquire one of those now... *sigh* its always something.

UPDATE: I lied. I found the CD. It was just stuck in an awkward place inside the box where one might miss it. So now I have everything. Oh happy day!

Vagabond Plate

The Vagabond is dead, long live the Vagabond...

Finally sold the Vagabond MK I yesterday. Got $125 for it. This doesn't seem like a lot, but given that its currently a 2 ton paperweight, and that I only paid $1 for it in the first place, the 12500% profit is pretty awesome.

Not I just need to fix some of the nuances on the MK II.
