My power cord to the laptop is kaput. It has to be held up at a very particular odd angle to charge the battery and get any power. So I can hold it with one hand and browse and click with the other, which works great for random internet wanderings and short FB updates and messages, but doesn't work very great for typing actual coherent thoughts in a longer blog post. So. Kind of a pain.
(I did order a new one from some internet laptop supply place that was supposed to be compatible with my laptop, but when it arrived it didn't work. So I had to make some "refund request" and troubleshoot it and send photos (yes, photos) and all this stuff before they'd refund me. The "universal" one at Best Buy is nearly $100, which just seems ridiculous for a laptop that we paid $300 for. So for now I'm just trying to get by with it as it is. Yep.)
