MacBook Pro Deconstruction
Image by neatlysliced
Without the battery and after the removal of the keyboard. Hard drive has been removed on the left hand side.
(I spilled a half liter of water on my laptop. This was the effort to dry it out and fix it. Apple ended up repairing it for a hefty fee, but still cheaper than a new computer. They replaced so many components that they might as well have given me a new computer. Definitely got my money’s worth.)
Il est possible de fabriquer des batteries rechargeables en trempant dans une solution de vinaigre un fil de cuivre et une vis ou une agrafe de zinc. Tout est clairement expliqué dans la vidéo.

Is it really 5 years since I bought this UPS? The batteries are rated for three years so for this one to last five is good.
I have a new one on order, in the meantime I have to put up with this red light blinking and an annoying beep! With all the power cuts we get, it would be foolish to risk running my computer without a battery back up power supply.

I bought the Harbor Frieght solar panels because I do not plan on using them to run my entire house. I will use them when I don’t have any grid power so I can charge batteries, run my laptop, ceiling fan, window airconditioner, power tools, etc. The Harbor Freight solar panels are inexpensive, easy to setup and if one breaks you only lose 15 watts.

It’s dark, I’ve been kicked out of the common area (glowng blobl in the bottom left) because it shuts at minight. It’s only twenty-five to in eastern standard time, damn it.
Yeah, I’m out here until the battery in my laptop dies, at which point I’m going to probably go to bed.
I’m up at 7 tomorrow (6 AM AEST) to pick up a rental (possible haggle over the no-show fee since I clearly did show up but they’d left early), and drive to Bermagui.

My new N95 straight from Vodafone, initially I thought it just had a long boot time, but the Nokia logo never came off the screen apart from switching to the Vodafone symbol for a brief period when you don’t touch it.
It won’t even switch off without removing the battery and my laptop doesn’t recognise anything has been plugged in when I connect the USB cable.
My first non Orange phone, not a great experience.
Having experienced the problems of a Sony Ericcson P990 I know there can be significant problems with high end phones. But it just feels as if there isn’t enough quality assurance going on.
The new MacBook Pro 17 inch is announced at Apple’s final MacWorld conference.
