D took her macbook in to a Genius. It was the optical drive and something that sits alongside it. He totted up the cost and it came to around Â£150. Then he said he would change the cracked display fascia, change the keyboard assembly because of a crack and he could do that as the job and drop the cost to Â£60 for all the same work. If I’d have gone in I’m sure it would have stayed at Â£150. Not that we are complaining. So she loves Apple more than she already did.
Pre-ordered Tactics Ogre which – along with the PC RPG’s I now have – keep me away from the PS3 and it’s finger damaging controller. Some of the RPG’s include Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2, Neverwinter Nights 2, Planescape Torment, The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, Starcraft and Warcraft 3. Steam + GOG are a lethal combination for the games I want to play (which are the old stuff).
My mac has decided today to not just unmount the 2 ext drives but to completely forget they are there. Have to remove and re-attach the cable. Happened 4 times. Odd.
I imported a few thousand pics into iPhoto earlier. One that flashed up was me with a mohican but that import crashed and I cannot find the pic anywhere. There are about 16k so I’ll have to try again. and again. Don’t think I’ll stick with it, might just make folders myself.
