Quick warning to anyone who tries looking at inappropriate pictures on your computer:
My computer has more viruses than Ron Woodruff and there isn’t a buyer’s club that can fix this problem. It’s the same old story. You go looking for a half-naked picture of Tom Selleck and the next thing you know, you have a gazillion pop-ups with no end insight. And for the record, that’s a gazillion with a capital G.
I did what any sane person would do after having the computer in which you’ve written every single one of your blogs plus your first novel, Hibernate, on would do when your hard drive has a syphilis level of disease. I went and fixed my laptop. I bought a laptop for podcasting three years ago and the darn thing just stopped working. Turns out the battery had run out of juice. Apple really thinks of everything. To warn users that the battery has gone bad, the battery swells or blisters. It’s a quick way to let the neophyte that the battery is dead.
The battery is dead, long live the battery.
[Sorry. I just wanted to write that.]
Bought a new battery for $140 and now I have the ability to podcast again. See how that goes.
Ben Raskin bartends at Keys On Main Wednesday through Saturday. Follow him on Twitter @BennyRaskin. Podcast this. In truth, it wasn’t Tom Selleck he was looking for. It was something with a lot more fur.
