The blog of Rahoul Baruah from 3hv Ltd

What's going on?

My name is Rahoul Baruah (aka Baz) and I'm a software developer in Leeds (England).

This is a log of things I've discovered while writing software in Ruby on Rails. In other words, geek stuff.

However, I've decided to put this blog on ice - I would ask you to check out my business blog here (or subscribe here).

Deceased

It's finally happened. My 12" Powerbook G4 refuses to boot. The drive is making a grinding noise. This is after the CD drive gave up the ghost, about nine months ago, and the battery refused to charge beyond twenty minutes, about a year ago.

So we've ordered a Core Duo Mac Mini (the Powerbook had been operating as a desktop machine for the last few months) - I played with one in the shop and the UI is noticeably more responsive. And I've ordered a replacement drive for the Powerbook (I'm not giving up on it that easily). However, every report I've seen on the web suggests that fitting a drive into a 12" Powerbook is a right bugger. I guess I'll find out soon enough ...
