My laptop gets angry if I plug it in to an external monitor and unplug it or close the lid or something. The good news is that every once in a while it makes this neato pattern on the screen.


Catching up with things in the quiet hours of night.

telecommutin’ Friday

I close out each week working from home. This is my desk.


Laptop flickered and made alarming beep noise again. Dead. Call to support, this time with proper screwdriver on hand. Back in business but lost a tiny screw in the process. Support fella said, “Just pop into the Apple Store for a little screw. You should be in and out in 5 minutes.”

an appointment that ended well

Laptop was too grumpy to start up. Folks at the Apple store fixed it with a smile. (Actually, they used a tiny screwdriver and some know-how.)

Happy anniversary, Macintosh
