Day of Silence: summary
It was interesting, although, sadly to say, I decided to end at 5 PM, since that was when everyone else was breaking their day of silence. So it was like a~ morning+afternoon of silence. Oh well. Keeping silent for the whole day would have been much much harder.

And I figured out why I had that need to talk? It's because I talk to my self, constantly, throughout the day. And part of not talking yesterday meant I couldn't do that.

Hm, I'm weird.


And there's something STILL wrong with my iBook. Now, when I plug in the power adaptor, it doesn't always light up... no, I should say, it doesn't always charge the machine. When it doesn't light up as orange, it's not charging the battery. And it doesn't light up as green either.... Not a big deal, but still a hassle, 'cause that means I have to plug and unplug and plug and unplug (thrusting in and out... ::mutters::) the adaptor end until it does light up. And I don't know why... However, leaving it plugged in (without it lighting up as orange OR green) still sends power into the machine... but doesn't charge the battery. WTF? I'm calling Apple after lunch, once I bring my computer elsewhere and see if it's the charger that's messed up, or the iBook. ::sigh:: In a way, I'm hoping it's the iBook. 'cause that would mean I might be able to get a refund and get a PowerBook?

Oooh, now that's weird. I just saw the power indicator flash RED? and then blink out. As I was pushing the battery in (upwards, really) and then letting it go... might be a battery problem? >.>

Hmm. I recall there was sometimes a problem with the Wallstreet, where some conductive foil inside the 'book could make contact with the DC plug, and somehow confuzzle the power manager into believing there was only enough power to run the system, and not charge the battery as well.

Gods, you've really not been having an easy time of it with the poor thing..

(So, looks like the Lombard joins the Wallstreet in being unsupported by Tiger. Still, some nosing around the XPostFacto forum suggests it probably won't be too huge a matter for the utility to be updated to permit Tiger to run on any feasible system. Seems Tiger'll offer some modest speed improvements, too, so I'll be interested to see how it fares on Bunny. Not sure how I'll be able to get it onto Dormouse, though, as the box will apparently only contain a DVD - anyone needing a CD version will have to send in $9.95 extra to Apple. Still, I dare say that'll turn up in the usual alleyways)
