ex machina

the ibook saga continues. i get it back today with the word that is ready to go with a brand new logic board. only it took me 30 seconds to figure out that it wasn't ready to go, since the power supply doesn't work and the wireless range had dropped down to 10 feet. all problems that i didn't have before it was "fixed".

more calls to apple and they have to send me a new power adapter before they can determine they can troubleshoot any further. maybe it'll get here in three days. this is really trying my patience. i'm sure there's a tech sheet that says after you replace the logic board you should perform a basic set of quality assurance checks before sending it back to the customer. i'm being advised that i should probably drive all the way back to the apple store in chicago and yell and scream until they give me a new one. normally, i'm not really moved to perform those kinds of acts in public, but i'm getting close.

and so, it's back to the trusty linux and wintel boxen.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
