Re: Disaster

I have been quoted £719 to repair my MacBook.

£432 for a new logic board
£90 for 2 new 256MB sticks of RAM
£75 for a new top
£62 for a new Airport Card
£60 for delivery.
I didn't even catch whether or not this price includes VAT or not, eek.

The lesson to be learnt here is do not drink anything near your laptop. But that was pretty obvious anyway.

I have almost got tab-scrolling back to where it was and tab-dragging is nearly back to where it should be too. I'm just having a bit of a mental block when it comes to dealing with resizing the window programmatically.

Nearly all of the tab-dragging code has been re-done and it now makes much more sense. I've taken Stuart Morgan's comments onboard and implemented them. However, as a result, I've touched many more files than I had before.

I promised #camino that I'd submit tab-dragging tomorrow evening so I had better get back to XCode.

Oh, jesus - according to Google that's about $1342US.

Which is about $8US more than the mid-model MacBook with an 80GB hard drive and a gig of ram costs, here, with a student discount.

Condolences!
