Hang on another year, little iBook!

Wow, you know your laptop is old and cranky when it literally spits its battery out at you in a fit of pique. I've never actually seen a battery become animated like that before. So either my iBook is pissed off at me, or I have a poltergeist living inside my computer.

(I expect I'll see a query letter about that soon enough.)

Oh, dear. Your computer hasn't taken to reading queries, has it? It might have been offering a critique on the lovelorn vampire-wizard-thief love triangle one. ;)

Sounds harmless, poor little iBook, but make sure the battery isn't one of the Sony recalls, if you haven't already. Although it would have been spitting sparks and caught fire in that case, I think.

Heh - now that's what they call 'spontaneous rejection'.

No, this battery is the one that replaced the recalled one. It's some off brand and it only holds a charge for about 45 minutes now. I would buy a new battery if I could afford one but they run about $100 now which is a little steep for me.
