Poof! Continued

Sorry, ran out of room. Anyway... But it didn't. It did nothing else. After ensuring it wasn't smouldering or leaking, i stowed it safely in a bag and ordered a new one. This will be the 4th charger this laptop has had. I always seem to have bad luck with these. And until the new charger arrives, i'm computerless. Has anyone else heard of something like this happening?


Ok. The much anticipated explanation to why i am posting from my phone is this- my laptop's battery is dead, and its charger died in a rather strange manner. When the computer warned me of its low battery, i naturally plugged it in. But when i did, nothing happened. It kept beeping, unaware of the plug. I unplugged and replugged it in on both ends to no avail. I then noticed that the green light on the charger box was off. This was showing all the symptoms of being broken. Little did i know, that charger had more in store for me. I shut down the computer and picked up the charger box; why i can't say. And when i picked it up it poofed. That's the only word to describe it. It got a little bit warm and the light blinked twice, and then with a loud poof this grey smokeish stuff came out of it. It made a cloud roughly the size of a soccer ball that had dissipated in 2 minutes. It had no odor and left no residue behind. I unplugged it fast and threw it down, afraid it would explode or burst into flames. Cont...


I'm sorry i haven't been around. It's a bit ironic how my last post moaned about abandoned blogs when right after that i abandoned my own blog for a while. It's just that i've been really busy. I also apologize for the horrible capitalization in this post, which is due to the fact that i am typing this from my phone. I'll explain why later...

Record Store Cats & Abandoned Websites

You have to see this. Even if you don't really like cats it is funny!

I don't have much else to say today. I'm being lazy with posts.

Oh, and you know what else? I checked today- the person who took the domain name doesn't even post there anymore. It's a closed blog. I think Blogger should clean up blogs that haven't been used in years, like that one. If they did I wouldn't have had to tack that dumb bycc to the end of my name.
