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.
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.
