Well my power supply for my home puter is decidedly ill. I can't find one for under $100 and my patch job went kablooey on me. So to everyone with whom I am way behind on correspondence, my apologies;). And to the rest of ya folks-I guess I'll do a little snoopy dance when I get this situation all straightened out. In the meantime, be nice, and don't play in the chemtrails! See ya!!!!

Sorry about your power supply, Doreen. I recently bought a UPS, and it's reputedly a good one, for about $69. I bought it to avoid all the freezing up my computer was doing, after hearing about how poor the quality of the power is out here in the sticks!

Doreen, a power supply for a regular type PC should not cost $100! I recently bought a cabinet complete with power supply for about US$42.

Well, this is one of those times that I wish I had the IBM format. I have an ibook. You can't buy the part I need, you have to buy the whole package. I found that I could buy half of the entire thing (which contains the plug that I need) for $75. Radio Shack doesn't stock the plug. It's like a $1 thing that is wrong, but you can't find the thing!!! grrrr again. I got a good deal on ibook, and we use Mac for work, so it was more logical for me.

I have been holding the plug by hand for a month, then when I found out how much they wanted to replace it after holding wouldn't work, I decided to chop it apart and see if I could splice it...that worked for a day! I'm watching ebay as my business partner swears by it....we shall see.

OK Doreen, I am not familiar with the iBook so can't offer anything useful, perhaps it would be easier and good therapy to fix the trailer instead! :)

Doreen, Try eBay. This is a link to the one listed that ends on the 4th: http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1327434044 It's at $42 dollars right now, shipping is $10. I've got a bunch of wholesale links, so I'll see what else I can find on the net and post anything that looks good. HOpe it helps, Kristin

Doreen, Do you need the full power supply, the adaptor, or the charge card, or what? I've got a bunch more possibles, but I'm not sure exactly which part you need. Let me know, Kristin

-- Kristin, in La. (sevenstonestile@earthlink.net), February 02, 2002.
