I woke up early (10 AM, for a saturday), and was up wandering around the apartment poking at the fridge when some part of my brain woke up and came to the conclusion that, hey, it might be nice to curl up in my blankets for a bit longer, because my feet were cold. So I did that, and somehow fell back asleep until 2 PM ^^;;;.
And... I've just realized that it's going to be a really inconvenient week to not have a laptop, if I do decide to send in the iBook. Because PuzzleCrack is this week! And as I do rely on perl and such to hack up little scripts... and being able to search on campus for clues while using wireless/meet with others to discuss things... garh.
And I still don't know where the problem is. There's no consistency in the blanking-out/failure to boot problem. I'm hazarding a loose wire somewhere, but shaking/lightly tapping the iBook hasn't caused the problem to surface. I don't think it's bad RAM? I've been running it without my 1GB stick, and thus far it hasn't died yet, which worries me. I _think_ I have a warrentee on that RAM, but... I don't remember anymore. But RAM shouldn't cause the screen to blink a half-second bar of white, then shutdown, should it? And then cause the system not to boot up properly for a while?
Bleh, this sucks. I want a MacBook Pro. Or just any Pro machine, something that doesn't keep dying on me. How much of a hassle is it to sell things on eBay?
