Nothing like the need for a rant to motivate one to blog. -And a few hours to kill without an Internet connection. (Thank you WordPress app for offline composition!)
I barely use my MacBook these days except on weekends when the local gang gets together to play on Saturdays. I pulled it out last night to charge the battery and update a few things and found that it didn’t think that there was a battery. WTF? (LOL at the iPhone automagically making those uppercase.) Restarting, cold boot, zap pram, resetting the power management… Nothing helped. As is often the case for computer trouble, a quick google search confirmed that I am not alone. This is apparently not an uncommon occurance. These ‘smart’ batteries apparently aren’t so smart. They go into a low power mode once they run too low on juice and sometimes they won’t come back out. Awesome. Seriously, who designs a laptop battery that can brick itself when it runs out of juice. It’s a (:$&;)-$:;!! battery for ;@)”)&$/&;@@ sales! Running out of power is part of the operational parameters, don’t ya think? Jerks. Hopefully Anthony and I can find an Apple store nearby so I can get it exchanged.
Blizzcon opens on Friday. We’ll pick up our badges and goodie bags tomorrow early to beat the crowds and see what else presents itself. I’m unsure how many people from my Dalaran guild might be there, though I know several people from my new guild on Draka will. Hopefully we can meet up to put faces to the toon/voice. -Always a fun surpise.
Hopefully this flight to Sacramento is continuing on to LAX or I screwed up… ;)
-Whew, it is.
2:50p: Hello LA!
