Update on my restarting MacBook. It’s gotten much worse, to the point where the computer reboots every ten minutes. A few weeks ago I got some pointers from people saying that Apple is requesting people to bring their MacBooks into an Apple Store, so I called the store in Emeryville and was told they’ve never heard of the problem, and I should bring it in so a technician could look at it. So apparently Apple isn’t aware of the random restart problem. I don’t know if I should waste a trip down to the store, I know I can’t be without use of the laptop for any extended period of time. Not a happy situation.
Eric Soroos had the same problem, after three weeks in service, his MacBook was fixed. He says at some level Apple is aware of the problem, if not at the retail level.
Mike Kaltschnee has had two replacement Macs, still getting random restarts. He provides the range of defective serial numbers, my serial number is in the defective range. Guess it’s time to take it in. Surprising that the people at the store don’t know about this problem. Surprising that they’re still selling defective computers?

Good luck to my buddy Robert Scoble on the launch of his new show, aptly named The Scoble Show. Go get em dude!!
Why it’s been so quiet here the last couple of days — I’m furniture shopping with another good buddy, the world-famous Ponzi, of Gnomedex fame. She flew down from Seattle just for the occasion. She’s a really great person to do this with. We’re having a lot of fun! That’s why there’s a picture of a chair below, we call it The Million Dollar Chair. It’s really nice.
A monkey is living in my old bedroom at my parents house. He’s typing random letters into a typewriter. In 1986 he typed the letters I, P, O, and D next to each other. He says I can sue Apple for trademark infringement. I say no way.
