The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

4 June 2003

Marked for death by Information Services (4)

Offense: Checking out a corporate notebook and bringing it back in Standby mode. I don't much care what you were doing at the time; I do care that the battery was down to 8 percent. Fortunately, I checked it over the day before it was scheduled to go out again, so it will have the benefit of an overnight charge, but dayum, people.

You mean it didn't have that "turn-off-automatically-if-left-alone-for-30-minutes" feature like my wife's laptop -- and her mom's that we've borrowed since my wife's MoBo fried?

This is a comparatively old box (vintage 1998); it lacks some of the niftier features of more up-to-date machinery.
