Two Broken Computers

My macbook’s power cord is limping along, disconnecting each time it gets jostled.  That makes two dead power cords in recent years–a pattern I can easily explain.  I sit with my laptop in weird positions, bending the cord where it attaches to the computer.  Or I don’t pay attention, so I stand on the cord or put my chair leg down on it. So that’ll be a billion dollars at the apple store tomorrow.

So then I pulled out my ancient thinkpad, thinking I’d see if the new Ubuntu release made the wireless happy.  It won’t turn on–no noise from the hard drive or anything at all.

Lastly, there’s Amanda’s computer (she’s in NC this weekend).  It only runs windows, which displeases me.  But I’m also worried about striking a trifecta…
