Hello again. It's been a bit.
Okay, last Friday night I noticed that my laptop was inexorably losing power, regardless of how everything was hooked up. At first I thought the surge protector had gone flooey. Then after a little consultation I changed my mind and thought it was the battery, and thus made arrangements. But now I find that it was really the AC adapter. This I didn't suspect because I had just replaced the AC adapter a couple of months ago. So today I bought a Targus cord at Staples which goes with pretty much any PC. Well, "goes with" is a funny term. It stopped the bleeding, but nothing's recharging.
Anyway, I'm back on the scene, blogging-wise. I have to skip Friday Random Ten this week, though. Power's stuck around 9% and I'm afraid what'll happen if I try to charge an iPod off this thing. But I'm ordering another Dell adapter, or cashing in the warranty if I can. Once that's done I should be back on track.
