Given that I’ll soon be traveling, hanging out in airports, seeing family, all that… I really had to get my shit together.
And so yesterday I made the painful decision. The trip to that hip Ginza clinic was a difficult one. Coming back to an empty home, even more so.
But it had to be done… lest my warranty runs out before I had been able to get all the crappy pieces of my Powerbook fixed.
Yoshiko gave me back the old G3 I had loaned to her last year when I got my G4, but it’s even more broken than it used to, basically won’t even start (although this would not be the first time and can probably be solved with a bit of soldering iron here and there), but anyway: I could barely stand its excruciatingly slow CPU a year ago, I can only imagine how bad it would be now.
As for the old PC laptop: I gave it to a church months ago. Wasn’t a donation, just a routine exorcism. Unfortunately it didn’t survive the bath in Holy Water.
Which is why I am typing these lines on Eriko’s old piece of junk, running XP Personal Edition…
And God does this thing suck.
Entering acute phase of withdrawal tonight…
