Okay, okay, ONE more feeling-sorry-for-myself thing.
My computer died. Officially. It’s gone. The machine turns on, but it just sticks at the Apple logo. I probably need to reinstall the system software, but no one in this city uses Macintosh. And, obvio, I left my discs at home.
(Amusing note: searching for a place that worked on Macs, we passed several stores with the Apple logo on their signs. Upon entering and asking if they could repair my computer, they looked at me like I was completely loca. No, of course they don’t work on Macs.)
I’m waiting on some less-than-legal discs from a place called “Discolandia” that may or may not be a temporary fix. Otherwise, I now have a 4 lb. paperweight in my bag.
I think I’m going to buy a PC when I get home. Apple has disappointed me. Someone talk me out of that.
Now I’m over it. For realz.
