Celty is Still in the Shop

I called the shop today and they said that my battery to my second laptop isn’t in yet. They said that the battery will be coming in in a few days. Meanwhile, I’m getting Pinky’s battery to charge properly. I decided to try and run it without the battery. It might the charge chord that is the problem. I won’t worry about it now though because of Pinky’s age. (Getting an older laptop fixed does not seem to be worth the lack of money on me at the moment.) The down side is that I can’t really play Sims on Pinky. The game will start up and play for a few minutes, but then will close down without warning. I don’t know what is causing it. I’m not sure if it’s a mod I updated or if I didn’t copy all of the files from OneDrive. I won’t be certain until I get Celty back and update the mods on that file. God, I really wish I had laptop #2 back. But, I know it will be worth it. I won’t have to worry about the charging stopping and starting on me repeatedly, or Celty going to sleep on me because the battery got too low, or Celty shutting down on me because the battery got too low. Can’t have that. I have work to do.

Speaking work, on Thursday we will going back to Berlin for the City Lounge. I kind of forgot where I was, but I will jump right back into it. I guess I will just keep on writing and waiting. While I do that, you can…

Celty Went to the Shop

I finally sucked it up. Today, I took Celty (Laptop #2) into the shop. Turns out, it’s not the charging port. But, I need a new battery. They are ordering for me. I don’t know how long it will be in the shop. For the time being, I using Pinky to do work. I had to update my browsers, Chrome and Firefox, and get some of my files onto Pinky. After that, I got right to work. I got my chapters done for the day.

On another note, I first Camp a day early. I think I will write to add one more page just before I validate it. Tomorrow, I get to start on my seventh Durarara fic, Caged Wonderland, in the Wonderland series. I am really excited!

Despite it not charging when plugged up, Pinky runs just like it did for the clock battery died. I can’t wait to get Celty back. Until then…

Going Nowhere, but Planning

Still no editor yet. I’m still giving some advice on what to do. Meanwhile, I am planning like always. I have a new Durarara fic coming up next week. It’s all part of the Wasteland Project like it always is. It will be titled Caged Wonderland. I can’t wait to get started. Camp Nano Part Two is winding down. (I won’t finish the book this year, but I will add more when camp rolls around again.) I have been ahead a day lately. Most of Book I will be finished by the thirty-first. I might go back and add more details to it next year. I will have to see.

I think Celty (laptop #2) needs to have the battery port replaced. It will charge normally at first, but then it will stop and start charging repeatedly. I have tried updating Celty. I tried defragging it. I even reset the internal battery and cleaned the port. Still doing the same thing. At first, I thought it was either battery or the charge chord. I called the Acer tech support and they said it’s the fixed. I watch a video on how to fix and battery port and realized I’m not skilled enough to do that. The most I have done for a laptop is to change Pinky’s (laptop #1) keyboard. So, I might have to take it to the shop and get it fixed. That is going to cost money and I am broke. I will at least give the computer shop a call and talk to them. That should be free, right?

Speaking of Pinky, that laptop is having problems too. When I plug it up, it is plugged, but it doesn’t charge. When I boot it up, it says that something is wrong with AC adapter. I think I might need a new charge chord for that one. My mom suggests it’s the internal battery. I don’t know if I will have that fixed or not. It is an old laptop, but it still works. I will have to see what I feel like doing. While I do that, you can…

Pinky Lives!

Technology is weird sometimes. Pinky, my Dell laptop, died last on February 15th due to the clock battery coming off and the clock battery being dead. A couple of months later, I took out the hard drive to some files to Celty, my Acer.

Fast forward a year later to this past Saturday.

I had planned to try and recycle Pinky for some cash in my local recycling place. Instinct told me to turn it on to see it still was broken. When I pressed the button, it booted up and asked for a diagnostics test. I accepted and it didn’t find anything wrong. Then suddenly, Pinky started working again. At first, it was around midnight with the date that it stopped working. But then, the time and date automatically caught up. After some updates to the computer and some of the apps up there, I was all caught up again. I get rid of some apps that I shouldn’t have on that laptop. I even changed the wallpaper and lock screen. I got the mouse working too. I think Pinky started working again before I took out the hard drive, put it back in, and didn’t mess with it for about a year. I don’t know. Technology can be weird like that sometimes.

The only problem is that the files on there are out of date. I did get my Sims game up to date on Pinky. (I will have to update Origin and Sims 4 on it too, but that’s for another time.) I can just upload my files to Google Drive and download them to Pinky. I did it for the Sims 4 game files and that worked beautifully. I will have to see if OneDrive will sync up with Pinky too. I will also need to figure out why Pinky’s battery wasn’t charging yesterday when I had it plugged up. It charged fine on Saturday. I need to figure out if it’s where I had it plugged up or if I need a new charge chord. I will have to run the tests while I get everything up to date.

Now, I have to figure out what to do now that I have to functioning laptops again. I will figure something out. Meanwhile, you can…

R.I.P. Pinky

Christmas 2008- February 15th, 2017

That’s right. Pinky has died. My first laptop has decided to stop working. What exactly happened? Was it the hard drive? A virus? Nope. The cmos battery holder came off. I kind of messed with it a year before just to get o the CMOS battery out to change it. I tried to super glue the holder back on and change the CMOS battery, but when I booted it back up the laptop, it said “Time of Clock has stopped”. Yep, it’s dead. I took out the hard drive to get the data off, but I don’t have the chords to connect to the new laptop. Speaking of which, I am using my new laptop (Which I have named Celty) and it is sweet! It has more space and the downloads on iTunes are much faster. Plus, the battery lasts longer than Pinky’s second battery.

It’s funny, Pinky lasted through the whole Obama administration. Oh well. I guess I figure out to fix Pinky one day and the other external hard drive. But for now…

Happy 4th Everyone and Presenting… Love Addict!

Happy Independence Day! How was your Fourth? Mine was okay. I ate food, but I didn’t really get to see fireworks. Oh well, maybe next year. Still, I got work done. Oh and saw the first new episode of D.Gray-Man Hallow. I love it! The animation and the voice actors are different. Someone complained about them, but I told them that artists often change style because they need to grow in their craft and they probably couldn’t get the same cast to do the voice roles. I thought the voices fit the characters. Overall, I can’t wait to see the next episode next week. Now, I have more thing to do.

Time for some book pimping.

Title: Love Addict

Description: A thirty-something sex addict is on the prowl tonight, but what she finds is a stranger that rips open the old wounds and sends her into mental anguish as she tries to survive the night with him.

I also cleaned out the vent of my laptop. I had no idea that I let dust build up that badly for close to seven years now. It was so gross too. Eww! Now, Pinky can breathe much better and not overheat on me when I play Sims 4. Yay!
I only have five more books left to re-format and re-publish. Soon, I will go back to publishing new books. The next book up is Weekender. Expect to see that some time this month or the next. For now…

Pinky Needs New Parts

Pinky, my darling laptop that I’ve had since ’08 needs some new parts. She works beautifully still, but she’s starting to show her age a bit. I will need to replace the following:

  • Keyboard: The “d” gets stuck on a daily basis and types out “dddddddddddddddddddd” at random. (So annoying and it interferes with my work).
  • Battery: I abused it to the point that it goes to low battery when I unplug Pinky. (Dumb on my part, I know. :()
  • Charge chord: It’s starting to fall apart near the part near the laptop. It doesn’t start up properly because of it.
  • And technically not part of Pinky, but a new USB adapter would be nice. See problem above.

I just need to figure out price and where to get everything. Oh yeah, Pinky is a Dell laptop. I know the type, but I choose not to disclose.
