It's alive.....it's aliiiiiive!!!
So, turns out my drowned Macbook has survived it's ordeal....sweet!
After pouring almost an entire mug of coffee over it (accidentally of course), I was pretty convinced that I'd need to buy a new (second hand) one pretty soon.
But just in case, I unscrewed the back cover, dismantled as much of the innards as I felt I could without breaking anything, then stuffed it with a bunch of those Silica gel packets that come in new luggage and stuff. I started saving those a couple of months ago in case I or my kids ever dunked my iphone in the toilet, turns out they work just as well on laptops.
I left them inside the Macbook for 3 whole days without turning it on, which I think was a good idea because when I put it all back together again it started up fine the first time!
So since my beloved Lucy didn't die...that's right, my Macbook is called Lucy, shut up...I decided to upgrade a few things, like installing an SSD and updating the OS to El Capitan...stupid name, but DAMN it's better than Snow Leopard!! Also, before the upgrade the laptop would take about 8 minutes to be usable when I started it from cold - now it takes 12 seconds!
Guess that means I have less excuses for not blogging more often now, huh?
