Laptop has been ordered

The Apple rep did call back, and placed the order for me. Supposedly the new amount will get charged and then a refund of the difference will be processed. And the laptop should ship in 1-3 days, which is good, because the current one has a dark band across part of the screen tonight.

Forgot the mention the wireless fun. Wireless is verboten--don't know if this is government wide, or just the Dept. of the Interior, but it's regarded as a security risk and therefore we aren't supposed to have it. But these days, most laptops come with wireless, and the PowerBook is no exception. So, it seems it's OK to get it, we're just not supposed to use it. But if you have a wireless network at home, it's sort of "don't ask, don't tell". Using a wireless connection in a hotel is probably out.

I'm impressed it got ordered that fast; you must really rate!

"There's a dark band across the screen tonight..." Sounds like a country song. Who would sing it?

Oh, computer companies are fast enough to take your money.

Getting it through the office approval process is the joy of having a supervisor who supports the purchase, and who also supervises the Computer Section folks. Pity he's going to be retiring soon!
