I was working with my laptop at work today, and I heard a weird crackling sound. I looked around, and heard it again. It was coming from the power cord for my computer, from the black box that transforms the 110 volts from the outlet into 15 volts for my computer. Quickly I unplugged the laptop for fear of starting a fire.
So, my power cord has failed. I’ve ordered a new one, but thanks to MLK day, I won’t be getting it until Thursday, more than likely. I had checked Circuit City, hoping to find a local solution, but they were asking $70 dollars for it! I found my replacement for $20.
At least I get to work from home again this week!
