I was watching that stupid show "Becker" last night for some reason? Has anyone see the one where he is having a day where everything goes right for him, but he won't believe it? Anyway....
Macbippy is trying to time-line the screen issue with powerbooks by analyzing the s/n of machines. Some of you may want to participate:http://www.hardmac.com/niouzcontenu....2003-10-16#803
The other news I had was that my machine is back to being repaired in Houston:
Let's hope that they found a permanent fix to the spots issue. I completely put the PB out of my mind, and I wasn't expecting it to be back in repair until next week, so maybe I will have it "early".
Anyway, back to Becker. My point in bringing this up was that I have had a seemingly horrible
week: two of three kids throwing up, me getting sick, my wife working late every night, then going on a business trip today, and then last night, our "good" car started making horrible noises. The rental place only had a small car and a pickup truck, and I had to pay for the rental. And
I have been stuck using my wife's 12" iBook to write exams and so on, in addition to using a Solaris box at work, and synching three times, twice a day to my linux box at home.
Today, my kids are great, acting great, I feel good, VW is going to pay for the HUGE repair to my car, and the small car turned out to be a new Beetle. Kind of fun to drive for a day or two, the kids love it. My wife is looking forward to driving it tomorrow. A small problem that I was having in my research has found a solution. And
it looks like my PB will be fixed and back soon.
Oh, and soccer practice was cancelled tonight.
