Even more powerless than I feared

Uh-oh. It’s worse than I thought. Though I’m sure my laptop’s power cord was beginning to short out, that’s not the sole problem; even with a new adapter, the computer’s still not wanting to charge.

Guess I’m taking it into the service center tomorrow…

The good news, at least, is that the motherboard still seems OK— booting off of what little battery power there is produces the familiar Mac startup sound before the system quickly powers off.

Well, my PowerBook’s power adapter has died. It’d been acting up for several months, but was still working… yesterday, it finally bit the dust.

I’m getting a replacement this afternoon, though, so everything’s all right. Set me back a hundred dollars buying the adapter from the local Apple reseller, but it was either that or waiting several days for it to ship…
