Oopsie

As I was in the process of installing a new 100 GB hard drive into my old PowerBook G4, I had a little boo boo. At one point you’re supposed to go in like the old board game Operation and disconnect two wires plugged in to the motherboard by these flimsy little sockets. Well it turns out the one that goes to the power button was fused closed and not going to come apart, so in jiggling with the damn thing I pulled it’s soldering off the motherboard. Crap! I am going to be down a few days it seems.

At least there’s plenty of backup technology lying around this house to tide me over. I installed PHP on an old 266 MHz Tangerine iMac, which seems to work just fine. No Dreamweaver running on that bad boy though… I think that’d bring that poor machine to it’s knees…
