I have an appointment at the Apple store in the morning. My six-year-old MacBook has decided that I don't need a monitor. (It flashes once on startup and shows that it is sending the right signal, but then goes black. Zapping the PRAM, taking the battery out and resetting it that way - neither worked; booting with the Shift key down to put it in Safe Mode seemed to work for about thirty seconds, but then it shorted out again.)

Might very well buy a new computer tomorrow.

(On the plus side, I'm able to do target disk mode and pull files off, so if I do need a new computer, it'll be an easy setup; on the other hand, buying a new computer right now wasn't really something I had budgeted, so that's the opposite of awesome.

But I had a feeling I might need to buy a new one soon, because my computer is six years old, and that's a pretty good life for a laptop. And having a new one will be pretty sweet.)

ETA: Apparently the monitor is dying. So I bought a new computer! Makes sense. ;)
