so I drove over the hill to the Mac store and bought an $80 power cord. Am now full functional. Um, well, I am now that I also bought a new printer today...since my old one crapped out on me last week, and I've been paying $0.12 a page in computer labs since then.
Sometimes (often as is the case with me) computers suck a lot.
But thankfully my cabrillo teacher said I could turn it in Monday.
People tell me I worry too much, but wouldn't you too, if you life was so distressing on so many minor levels?
