It Is So Green Here / Laptop Bummerville

Fecund morning in Roanoke

It’s noon here, which means it’s nine ante meridiem back in California. It’s odd to think about that difference.

Meanwhile, I’m a little bummed because my laptop is going wonky. It’s an iBook G4:

My laptop is going wonky.  My laptop is going wonky. Part 2.

Anyone seen this kind of “melting screen” effect. Happens at random. I suspect it’s the hard drive crashing and grinding. Luckily there’s lots of other machines I can do work on. I’m letting it take a rest for a while.

i had a similar thing happen to my computer. it turned out to be the wiring to the screen. this may or may not help. apple care = hateful and mean but well worth it.

Thanks Kyle. I suspect it’s the hard drive. It’s probably at the end of its’ life and I’ll probably let it go.
