I’m back, sorta…


Well, here I am again. Same old crappy keyboard and sound card; same old crappy problems on my 15-inch PowerBook, in other words. The crappy repair shop couldn’t get new crappy parts to replace the old crappy parts, so I’m stuck. You wanna know the worst part? Turns out, the guy who took ’em in mistyped my phone number, so that someone else got MY messages on their cellphone. I know 2 is next to 3 on the keyboard, but sheesh…does no one double-check? He had my old repair invoice with him, after all…complete with correct number.

And the really fun part? He e-mailed me to let me know things were ready. Or one of them, anyway. (I had no computer from which to receive the good/bad news.)

At this rate, I’m not surprised things turned out the way they did.

However, I’m happy to report (well, kinda-sorta happy, anyway) that the 12-inch baby has a new hard drive, the biggest and best-est it could get, and I’m now reinstalling Nurse Leopard on it to help Dr. Bina bring it back to what it was before it died on me so spectacularly. Wish me luck in getting all the info off my Time Capsule into the machine again…

I’d also like to thank everyone who e-mailed me for the 168 messages (why is it always 168?) in my inbox. If I don’t respond to each one individually, now you know why. I’m still trying to read them all. Just know I love you, ‘kay?
