But have you ever scratched your eyeball? Man, it’s like hell. Or maybe it just reminds me of Hell.
Today’s the last day in PHX for a while. I’ll make some calls around, but it looks like good old-fashioned not-much-happennin’. I’m thinking (and I like this thought because it only means a $35-$75 fix instead of an entire new laptop) that I may have burned out my AC adapter. I took the voltmeter to it last night, and assumming my head isn’t full of squashed flies, there’s no current coming out of the thing. Which sure would explain why the laptop doesn’t turn on. If I can, I’m going to try to get out to an Apple Store of some kind and see if they can just plug it in with one of their AC adapters to see if that’s the problem. Anyone know what busses run through the Biltmore area?
It feels like there is actual cat hair between my eyelid and my eyeball. Except on fire. That antihistamine I just took better take effect soon, or I’ll have to tear a hole in space-time to get somewhere I’ll be okay to get around.
I have used more Windows XP in the last couple of days than in the last eight months. It’s frustrating, all the things it doesn’t do right. I’m thinking what needs to be done is someone needs to write a virus that infects people’s computers, then senses when people are frustrated with Windows and pops up with the Apple web page showing how Apple computers don’t have the specific problem they were having, and suggests they order a Mac. Of course, I also think there should be a way for ‘switchers’ to turn in their CDs and licenses for the PC versions of software they use in exchange for the Mac version when they switch, for maybe a small, nominal fee covering the cost of the CD and Manuals themselves. The biggest reason I hear from people about switching isn’t with anything Apple is doing, but with the cost of re-buying all their software. (For those of you who just pirated your PC software anyway and complain that there aren’t good pirating options for Macs, either grow up and pay for your software or take the time to learn how we do it.)
No, I’m going to go fight with BitPass. Wish me luck!
