Equipment placement

11:03 am:
It takes a lot of my thinking about where to locate stuff before I make a decision. I Blogged to you about some equipment last Sunday. Here is where I've decided that equipment will be mounted:

➜ Renogy solar battery charge controller.
On the living quarters wall above my bed where it may easily be seen.
➜ West Marine illuminated switch panel/circuit breaker.
On the same wall as above but on the workshop side.
➜ Jupiter 2000 watt inverter.
On the floor of the over-cab cabinet.


3:27 pm:
I'm at the Apple store in La Jolla California. The internal speakers are not working and I am here for that.

As I approached the store's entrance and observed the Apple with a bite out of it logo, it occurred to me that only 43-years ago, two guys with hardly any money started this company.




4:35 pm:
My Mac has been checked out. Apple has determined that the same board that was replaced during the prior repair appears to be bad now.

Apple has ordered that board and I will return when the board installation is ready to be done.

That installation will take several days. How I will do blogging and other computer-related tasks while Apple has my computer is not certain!

    1. Bill,

      I have used my iPhone to Blog before. What a pain in the ass!

      The screen is far to small to be able to select letters for changing [ie: Bold, color, etc].

      To get around using iPhone requires me to remember the URL that I want to go to.

      Like I said, pain!

      I am thinking about solutions. Not for your survival, John. But for my happiness!

  4. I think Apple should provide a loaner while yours is in their shop.

    1. Lou,

      In a way, Apple did provide a new computer during the first time my Mac was in the shop.

      I returned that new Mac when I picked up my repaired Mac.

      In retrospect, I should have kept that new Mac for another week. But I did not know that my Mac would go bad so quickly!

  5. Maybe instead of typing out a blog you could simply post pics of whats going on if that isnt a hassle through the phone. I cant imagine typing up an entire post... I get angry trying to type up a simple email with my work phone.

      I may just stop Blogging while my Mac is in Apple's repair shop.
