Meep. Slight problem.

My power adapter’s just about ready to give up the ghost. The cord
connecting the adapter to the laptop has frayed near the plug, and
it’s the part that’s integrated with the adapter, not the replaceable
cord that connects it to the power outlet. Fujitsu Canada sells the
part for CAD 55, but requires a Canadian-based credit card, and PC
Financial just declined my application. (Boo! I guess I’ll have to go
for the secured TD credit card, then.)

Mmkay. Problem-solving mode. Here’s what I can do:

  • Buy external 2.5″ hard disk enclosure, grab my data off my hard
    disk and pull it into the Vaio. Possibly get a new hard disk for
    the Vaio too, as I remember being almost out of space on that one.
  • Shift to the Vaio as my main computer.
  • Set up TD secured credit card.
  • If Vaio sucks after one month of typing (check for RSI!), order
    power adapter and new main battery.

Sounds like a plan.

Random Japanese sentence: 私はこの猫の世話をしなければならない。 I have to look after this cat.
