My computer is, I believe, permanently out of service. In short, the power cord melted itself and in the process I think something inside the computer was damaged as well, since my back up power cord won't work anymore. Initially, this was really bad news. I really liked my computer. It was always incredibly reliable and problem-free. But, it is about five years old, and lets be serious, thats up there as far as a computer's life expectancy goes. And I'd be lying if I said it didn't have its little quirks. So, yes, I really liked my old reliable computer and it stinks that I can't use it (now Mike and I have to share), but I can see this situation for what it really is, a chance to upgrade! I have my eye on an an iMac, and hopefully after a bit of money saving, I'll get to 'switch'.
