PowerBook G4 power supply SUCKS

My first power supply got very sucky after not too long when the prong that plugs into the laptop just wouldn't plug in properly and was loose and wouldn't charge properly.

So we moved to the US and got a new US power supply, and that fine. It's still loose, and I have to spin it around until it gets to a point where it actully charges. Then tonight it stopped charging and it looks it's been chewed by some pussy cats! It's a very flimsy cable, and given how frustrated I've been with the lack of charging it probably wouldn't have been too long before I replaced it anyway.

So I looked online for a replacement and it costs $79 and it takes 3-4 weeks to ship!!!! WTF???? How ridiculous is that??? I had a look at the reviews at the Apple website, and there's over 1300 reviews, with an average rating of 1.5 out of 5 stars. All the reviews complain about how flimsy and useless it is and how expenseive the replacements are.

I love my Mac but that's just stoopid!

Home again home again jiggity jig

Home from Las Vegas, much fun was had, and now I'm back at work, tired and sick. Bleh. More exciting Las Vegas report to come.

Hope everyone had a happy, safe chrissy!

It's beginning to look a lot like christmas!

Food is everywherrrrre. That's how the song goes doesn't it??? :)

One of the lunch options at work today was christmas lunch which I'm currently munching on - turkey, roasted vegies, mash potato, stuffing, and a really yummy gravy! And dessert is peppermint smores - it's the first time I've had a smore, so I think once I eat it I'll officially be American :)

Another year older...

Ho hum, I'm another year older today. We've just had 2 weeks in Australia, I've started a new job, and we're about to go off to Vegas for 5 days, so we'll just have a quiet one tonight at home.

Uber quick update

Back from Australia. Had a GREAT time! Heron Island was so beautiful and we had a really relaxing time there. Lovely to see our respective family and friends.

I got a job at Google in a temp to hire position as a project coordinator (woohoo!) which I started on Monday and is going well.

Andrew's now in Spain for a Debian QA meeting, feeling a little sick and tired (literally...) of travelling, but I think he'll have a ball still.

I passed my uni exams - yayyyyyy!!!!! I now have 3 months off for "summer holidays" which of course is winter over here, but we'll cram in as much as we can anyway.

Will get photos from Heron up very soon.
