Last year the battery died. I never bothered replacing it, so it sits chained to its power adapter. Today it lost a power cord. As in, shooting sparks out a hole in the insulation where the wire broke. The annoying thing is, I can't find any way to buy just the AC cord for an old iBook adapter. It's a nonstandard connector. So, I get to buy an entire adapter just to get the cord. <sigh> Let's hear it for Apple!
At some point you start to wonder if it's worth spending money to keep the old stuff hobbling along... okay, it's more of a nagging itch in the back of my mind... a mere echo, really. I mean, I'm still actively using the 25MHz 486, so a 466MHz G3 has lots of life left in 'er.
