Being that I have never really done anything Spring Break-like, and this is my last Spring Break, Jon and I are trying to come up with something. We have no idea what, and it has to be decently cheap. Will let you all know if it’s anything fun.
I called Apple and requested repair on my MacBook, since I can live without it for the next week. The damn palmrest cracked again just after Christmas break, so need that repaired, again. If I need to send it in a third time (very likely, probably about May) I am going to bitch that I want it FIXED, not just repaired, and if that means I get a new aluminum unibody MacBook, then so be it. Apple has opened repair to all MacBooks, including those out of warranty, and though it is not publicly stated, they obviously recognize this as a know issue. If they know it’s an issue, why should I have to send in my computer every 6 months for repairs?
Speaking of my computer, I added a new program/service last week. It’s called DropBox, and it’s like a virtual thumb drive. You sign up (name and email, thats it) and download the software. It makes a folder on your computer and anything up put in it gets upladed to their servers. You get 2GB for free (2.25 if you follow my referral link), and an additional 250MB for every person you refer, up to a total of 3GB. You can also pay them money for more space but I’m cheap, and 2-3Gb is pretty good. Note: you wont see your 250MB bonus until you actually download and install the software, it won’t appear when you first sign up. It’s worth a try, right?
I cleaned the aquarium, holy crap was it dirty. I mean, I do a water change and vacuum every week or 2, but I actually pulled and rinsed all the gravel and wow, there was a lot of crud in there.
Started watching more movies again. Get Smart, Dead Like Me – Life After Death, Stranded with Les Stroudt (the prelude to Survivorman) in the last week, with a few more to go. Trying to get them watched and free up space on the HD so it will be easier to do a Backup before sending computer off.
I also started reading The Watchmen. I am through the first chapter and addicted already. Have heard mixed reviews of movie, but hoping having read the book will help me enjoy the movie more.
Unfortunately no job yet. Still looking though. Market is not good, but all I can do is keep trying. I graduate 2 months from Monday, is almost time to start freaking out, but not yet.
And that would be it for this post. See you next time.
