Anyone heard of/have thoughts on WeakKnees? My Tivo keeps restarting (maybe has something to do with the whole throw it in a reusuable shopping bag in the storage space rather than gently carry it from one apartment to the other), so after troubleshooting and deciding I don't want to replace the hard drive, I want to buy a new one. There are refurbished ones on WeakKnees, but are they reliable?

If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

WeakKnees has been around for decades, and back when I had a Tivo they were great for repairs.

Yeah, I remember them from back when I had a Tivo, but that's been...well...a long time at this point.

Why isn't everyone pelting me with JOY, dammit? - Zenkitty

I've had a weird thing the last several weeks where I've been unable to access YouTube from my work laptop. I suppose it could be a case of them deciding we aren't allowed access, but it seems unlikely since they occasionally use it for corporate stuff. And the message keeps saying that I'm offline and should check my connection. I'm demonstrably NOT offline (posting here, f'rinstance). The computer has been shut completely down a few times since this started, but it hasn't sorted itself yet. Not the kind of thing I can call corporate IT about, unfortunately (at least not until the next corporate thingy that happens to post there), anybody have any ideas?

Does anyone have a strong opinion on MacBook Air v MacBook Pro?

I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

I decided to buy an Air rather than a Pro but I don't actually have a strong opinion. I also haven't turned it on in over a month, so.

The new Air models are very powerful. A few of my employees are using them and have been very happy. As long as you don't need the additional ports then it's a very good option.
