Shortly after we started on our vacation, my laptop quit recognizing the AC charger, and my battery quickly ran out, so boom, I'm without my principal computer again. I still had limp-along Internet access with my work computer and Barry's iBook, but it's just not the same. Upon returning home, I contacted Dell and sneaked the repair under the last 60 days of my 3-year on-site next-business-day warranty. "Next business day" translated into "Three days later," but I did get a new motherboard last night - and boy does it feel good to have my 'puter back!
Now I have a lot of blogging to catch up on. The next few posts will be in no particular order, I'm afraid.
