Wednesday's Joan McCarter Day!

This particular Wednesday marks the 24 hour countdown until my brackets are due. Should I fill them out based on the gun laws of the states in which each school is located? By endowment per student? Just let Armando do it? Any other suggestions? Is there rehab for this?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    j/k!  A desktop should last about 4-5 years, and a good laptop should be viable for 5-6 years.  I've got a laptop that's reached the 8 year point, although it's been relegated to secondary duty, mostly because it can't really run a lot of the latest stuff.

    What is quite common is that one of the solder joints in the soldered-on USB port develops a crack, and the entire port then works intermittently. USB ports are hard-soldered onto the mainboard, so there's no real choice other than to replace the mainboard.

    A new mainboard is about $250 - double that figure for Apple - then add in around 2 hours for installation and testing at $60 per hour.  There's a small possibility that a good tech can re-solder that defective joint - it's worth a try and it will save you a lot of simoleons if it works.

    BTW, I think Greg meant "flash the BIOS" lol.  Takes about 20 minutes, and it's worth a try - probability of this procedure being your ultimate solution is pretty low, though.

    If General Motors is really a person, it's a person that needs to go to jail.

  •  Just a few comments on your cross border insurance (3+ / 0-)

    idea.  First, I'm sure there are many people in the northern tier of states who would be quite happy with Canadian healthcare if it were available.  I know several people in Michigan who make regular trips to Windsor to do some shopping.  Why not for medical treatment as well.

    Also, you guys didn't mention the many citizens of Texas who would undoubtedly benefit from the ability to obtain healthcare in Mexico,which I understand is quite good and relatively reasonably priced.  This option could be especially important to women who live in areas of Texas that no longer have access to family planning and pregnancy termination services as a result of the recently passed TRAP laws.  If the Gulf of Mexico could be construed as a "border", similar options could be extended to citizens of Louisiana and Mississippi which failed to allow the Medicaid expansion.  Thus, this cross border insurance plan could become the NAFTA of Healthcare.  I'm sure the Republicans would go for it because we all know how much they love "free trade."  I'd be interested to know what you, Joan, and Greg think of this idea.  Maybe we could get some Republican to introduce this on the House floor the next time Obamacare comes up for a vote?

    Regarding your tech question.  I have a mid-2010 standard Macbook that I purchased as refurbished in March 2011.  I actually bought the $250/3 yr.  Applecare coverage as well and it was well worth it.  It's my sole computer right now and it has worked very well.  I've found the Applecare techs to be very helpful when I've had issues.  They are all pleasant and easy to understand and work with.  I recently sent my laptop in for a mail in repair to get the battery replaced because I was getting a "Replace Soon" message.  I was told that batteries aren't usually covered but I sent it in anyway.  I was amazed at the service I got.  They provided a pre-paid Fedex box which I sent to the service center in Texas on a Tuesday evening.  To my surprise I got my laptop back less than three days later with a new battery, a new logic board, and a new camera that i didn't even know was broken all at no charge.  Based on my experience I expect to get at least another two years out of this Macbook, albeit without the Applecare which expired recently.  I don't have an Apple Store nearby, but I'm sure you do have at least one in the D.C. area.  I'd make a trip to the Genius Desk if I were you before buying a new one.  They might be able to fix your issues with little or no cost.
