Sto-o-o-ock Spa-a-a-am

Here is the actual text of one of those stock spams that managed to slip past my spam filter. Marvel at the utter ridiculousness that comes from this spammer trying, I can only assume, to avoid spam filters. Note that I’m not trying to actually promote the stock mentioned here; in fact, if anyone actually buys stock based on a message that looks like this, I seriously pity that person.



My brain and I just do not get along.

OK, so the Jeopardy! contestant test was being held on Jeopardy’s web site at 8:00 tonight.

So I logged in 30 minutes ahead of time, just like they suggested, and left the window for it in the background so that I could come back to it when it was actually time to start.

Yep, you guessed it… by the time 8:00 actually struck, I totally forgot I even had the window open. By the time I remembered I was supposed to be taking the test, it was already over.

I am such a scatterbrain… -_-;;


The Mac came back

My PowerBook has returned to me, now with working power.

I am happy.


Not a good way to start the new year

I just got the new power adapter in.

The problem was not the power adapter.

It’s the laptop. >_<;;

Edited 7:57pm to add: This bodes well. The power inlet is on a separate board from the motherboard on PowerBooks, so it will probably only be necessary for Apple to replace that particular board.
