Dear Marc, you may wonder why you get so few postings these days. Well, let me tell you:
My computer only starts if I press start with the cord in, then remove the battery during start-up, while holding the lap top upside down.
As I proceed to work, turning the lap top the right way, I often accidentally disconnect the power and everything I've typed gets lost. To cheer me up when computer rage hits, my Mac hums a fine tune coming from a spinning library CD, permanently stuck in the DVD-slit. Can I write "slit"? Is that offensive? Sorry! My computer made me this way.
Will buy new lap top tomorrow. Throwing logic to the wind, I will get another Mac. They may break down, they may stall, they may shed little silver screws (can I write "silver screw"?) around like dandruff but they have personality. This very computer refused to co-operate at all until I brought out a regular hammer and forcefully banged my computer a few times.
Don't try that on your best friend, even if I did.
ps. Can I write "banged my computer?" Could I be suffering from computer induced Tourettes? I know I'm not the only one.
