Oh Julie, I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Zarah Maria

Hope you'll be back again soon Julie!



I certainly empathize. My 2003 iBook hasn't completely died. The hard drive is just, immediately, full. And I wanted to install a wireless card, finally, on it, for my upcoming trip to New York. (Yes, that's right, I'm coming to your neck of the woods.) Geek that I have suddenly become, I want to blog from coffee shops while I'm in my old city. But Apple doesn't make them anymore. I'd have to buy them off of eBay.

Enough. I finally gave in and bought a new one yesterday. Yikes. I hate that three years in computer time is 20 years in human time. I'm always going to feel behind!

Come back when you can. We'll be here.


Keiko and Zarah, thanks so much. Your heartfelt wishes and good energy obviously helped to heal my iBook, since it's now up and running again...

Hey Shauna,

I actually neglected to mention that Apple not only repaired my computer beautifully, they had it back to me in three, count 'em, three business days. I was pretty flabbergasted, but it looks like this baby and I are going to be in business for at least a little while longer.

G says that total life expectancy, especially for laptops, is only about 3 to 5 years...you might have one that lasts for longer, perhaps, but the question becomes whether or not it will be able to run anything that you want or need, as the technology changes from minute to minute...sigh.

When are you planning to be in NYC?



I know. It's planned obsolescence. (Did I spell that correctly? Ah well.) I've had mine for three years, and since I'm taking so many photos and downloading material, I think the poor thing has just had it. Now, I'm actually pretty excited for the new one to arrive in the mail.

I'm coming to New York next week! I arrive on the 29th, and I don't leave until the 5th. Would you like to have coffee? Molly (of Orangette) speaks so highly of you!

(We could take this to email if you want to meet.)
