iMac Blues

My iMac died this week. Bummer. It needs a new power supply, so I guess a trip to Marianas Electronics is in order.

This is the second time I’ve had to bring that machine in for servicing. There was a factory recall back in 2005 on that model, and now this.

Actually on second thought, maybe I will just buy the power supply and replace it myself. Not exactly rocket science, and I have built and repaired a number of other computers, Macs included. I am still particularly proud of how I brought my G3 back to life in 2002. Bought new motherboard and ROM chips off eBay, a new power supply, housing and more RAM and my venerable machine was chugging along like new.
