Cost of maintaining stuff

Besides the left foot pain, things are going well with running.

Finally got the computer back. 11 days after I turned it in–not bad. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The laptop (Macbook Pro) had a problem with the screen, which randomly went blank. The motherboard was replaced. It was the second time I have had this problem. The first time was last year, less than a year after buying it. Guess I don’t have much luck with it.

The repair would have costed me 39,000 Baht this time (about 1,175 USD). Very expensive. Good thing I have purchased extended AppleCare last year. The support is ending in six months though (the computer is 2.5 years old). Not sure what I will do if something goes wrong after that time.

Oh well. Things always go wrong. That’s life. Gotta deal with it.

Tomorrow is a holiday. Only 3 work days this week. 🙂
