As if the current economic news, plus the 4-hour daily commute to work for both of us, wasn’t enough to explain why neither of us has been blogging lately, now there’s this.
Quilly’s computer has died. Again.
This time it looks like the DC power jack. A $5 part that will probably take $500 to replace. ‘Cause the repairers will insist on replacing the motherboard along with the jack. If they don’t insist on replacing the whole computer.
Or maybe they won’t. Maybe they’ll be relearning the lost Depression-era art of cheap repairs, so they can take whatever customers they can get. They sure as hell will be, if they’re watching the news, and the markets, like the rest of us.
