Technical Troubles

Argh. So my iBook’s battery has not held a charge for about a year, making it about as useful as a desktop since it has to be plugged in all the time, but I’ve been too lazy to do anything about it (and too poor to buy a replacement if AppleCare won’t replace it and too scared to find out).

As of today the AC adapter only charges the battery when the computer is closed — when it’s open, I get an error that there is no juice and the computer is going to sleep, BYEEE! So basically my computer is good for three minutes at a time, not even long enough to back it up.

YAY!

All this is by way of saying that I can’t write the post I planned on writing today. But, um, it turns out this one is longer anyway. So never mind. (Don’t you hate when people post just to tell you they can’t post? SO ANNOYING!)

I’ll be back, hopefully. If I don’t get eaten alive by angry iPhone customers at the Apple Store.

    This might not be helpful now, as you’re already on your way or gone, I’m sure, but mine started doing that and it would only charge if the plug was rotated into the exact right place. Again, making it as useful as a desktop, but still useful enough to back up.

    You underestimate how lazy I am. I have not gone anywhere yet! The plug works sometimes if I hold it in place, but only sometimes. Obviously I will TRY to back it up (I’m about a month and a half out of date, so of course my novel is on there and tons of Sammy pictures but everything else is safe). And I will probably call Apple first to find out if they can or will help before I go stand in line.
