Screw-up

Well, I just poured coffee by accident into my laptop (duh, like anyone does that on purpose). The keyboard works, but not the trackpad that serves as a mouse. It turns out to be damnably difficult to operate this laptop sans trackpad. I guess I’m going over to the Apple Store in Cambridge to see if they can do anything for me. Here’s hoping.

    Andrew,

    I have done that very thing…I am sure it all worked out when it dried up. If not…no idea what to do. Of course, being that the ASB account buys all my toys, I would just buy another one. Of course, my officers would have to agree to the stipulation that I would never ruin another laptop….but I would beg, then threaten, and all would be fine. I have yet to ruin anything yet…so….they have decided to buy me the new Treo 650 smartphone for Christmas. I will certainly keep the coffee away from that! What exactly will you have to do to be credentialed to teach in the public schools in Connecticut? I really enjoy the honesty found in your comments…was a bit surprised in the blow-job in the shower comments…would you get a stern lecture from the headmaster if he or she read your comments?! Just curious…hope you will keep in touch!
