I knew it had to be too good to last. Computer-related tragedy has hit the Candlestring household. The MacBook, *my* new MacBook, the one that I contemplated buying for more than a year (more like three) and then spent extra money on for the faster hard drive and more memory and all that... yes, THAT MacBook - is dead. BOOO HOOO :(((
What happened? Well, long story short: Frodo spilled a glass of water on it. While it was open. While it was running (which it promptly ceased to do). He froze. I freaked. Turned it over right away. Yelled for a towel, and a spoon or something to open the battery compartment. Removed the battery and drained the case as best I could. Dashed for my other computer which, thankfully, is still connected to the internet via dial-up, and Googled the problem. Found out I did the right thing and to put it somewhere open and upside down for a week and then... sigh. Then I can try it and see if it works at all or if I have to send it in or what. But even if it does work I should send it in and have it cleaned.
There is more I would like to say about it, but the pain is too fresh. I don't even want to start on the potentially lost photos and the little videos of the baby and all.
I could really use some happy thoughts, so if you have any to share please do leave a comment. Thanks.
