A day after signing up and the paranoia begins.
Did I enter my email address correctly....?

I hope in the excitement I didn't make a mistake :wink:

Shelved.

My computer has been out of my possession for well over a month now, and I except it back next Monday.

It was great, those repairers first said they found nothing wrong, then I brough it to the car, it failed, and I brought it back in. 4 weeks later, I find that they had to replace the CPU, the cooling system, and part of the case, because it was touching the motherboard in ways it should not.

I would have fixed it myself, save for the fact that it is a laptop, and my expertise on laptops is fairly limited.

That, and I knew the CPU was having an issue, and one this particular model, it was soldered to the board. Groan.

How they went from "nothing is wrong" to replaceing nearly everything, I really can't imagine...

Those hentaish casings, I knew it was eyeballing at the MB in an odd fashion the MB did not approve...

Simple, their first shop was a Car Garage.

Not crossing fingers because there are more interesting things than defcon (google for ICPC).

Xander : have 2machines, end of problem

I have two machines. One is a blue and white G3, the other is a PowerBook G4. However, Wendryn just got a raise, so we may be getting an Intel PowerBook soonish (I refuse to call it a MacBook -- it just sounds so... stupid).
