Mouses can be louses when you're trying to get used to them! They play all kinds of tricks on you while they think they can get away with it!

I'm late, but still in good company. I must be getting better with my brother's mouse.

...along with a couple of rubber bands, a cork, a flat round magnet, and a couple of split lock washers....

PhG meant well, but the "or" should read "and." Many cases require both.
The cable ties are in that compartment with the paper clips, pencil stub and screws left over from the last three jobs....

potatomum66

Ah, PhG - give me some credit. Of course I know that!! Often a cable tie comes in handy as well. :)

Remember spuds if it can't be fixed with a hammer or duct tape then you have an electrical problem. Known fact.

potatomum66

That's cheating, PH! That's like using a program to solve a jigsaw puzzle!

'Av yew called tech support? :)

Ah, Mr. O. I knew you'd come through! Did the computer innards in the photograph send you a secret message? The ancients used to read the entrails of certain animals - but you can do it using cryptic product marks and computer innards. A man for our times!!
I think I'll make a cup of tea and read the tea leaves. Maybe that will tell me something!! :)

oddio

Oh, I see what your problem is...

Hi you guys!! I've been starved for weather news, what with my puter (not to be confused with my putter, which I don't have, though I often putter!) on the fritz - or at least being very temperalemtal. I'm beginning to think that computers are like cats - go away and leave them for awhile and then they'll show you just how well they can get along without you, thank you very much!
I think you've been cooling down because it's been so unusually cold here. 29F at my house this morning! We all know that cold air flows downward, so that's where your cooler air is coming from - up here!
You know it's cold in San Diego when you go to take out the trash and the birds fly into the house and wiggle under the blankets on the bed!! (kidding, of course)
S'mores, a Mac-I is just what I'd get if I tried taking mine apart. !! And we both know it!!
Foxy, I think Step #2 is to wonder why you thought Step #1 could possibly have been a good idea!!

At least I can email again - woo hoo!! ...um, or E can iMail again! My brain is overheating. Probably needs a good dusting. Flying through the air to Australia might cure things!!

Mac-eye? Oh dear, what a groaner!

Step #2? There is one after Step #1? Possibly dispose of it thoughtfully :-)

Please observe the leader board and whom has beaten whom.... (Before it changes)... Three whole seconds... That'll teach him to sneeze... And you there, with the camera, tripod and ND Grad filters.... No fair doing it again..... Tee Hee Hee .... :) :)

I see youve been playing around with iMac innards again, spuddie dear.... Could be dangerous... If you get things backwards you might get a Mac-i... Then you and pumpkin could commiserate... Today we have 76-78°, some wind and a little sprinkling, probably the outer limits of the storm, way up North... Sounds like you have the heat on and the roses covered.... What a difference half a world makes.... Take care, please... Pretty please... :) :)

Actually, my friend, I have to confess that is not my machine. Mine is still under warranty, so I'm just working with tech support trying out different ways to provoke the problem into reproducing itself. Mine does have a DVD/CD drive. I suspect mine may just need to have the dust blown/vacuumed out, but while it's under warranty I'm not about to pop the back off myself and have at it. I'll lug it in to the big boys and have them play with it on their dime, not mine!

By the way, I'm loving your photos of the Black Hills et al.

There are times when our best efforts fall a little short of a full deck. I was talking about your hard drive being solid state. I can see your Ram hanging out of the system so lets zip up in company. I guess this model does not have a DVD/CD drive.

potatomum66

It's been so abnormally cold here for this part of the country that everything we have is now solid state! If I have a full set of memory cards, why does it seem that I'm often one card short of a deck? :)

photogent

Spuds you have a full set of memory cards and is that a solid state memory?
