So, my laptop has a short in it that is preventing it from being charged.  Not quite sure whether it's in the actual laptop, or in the cord. :/

Right now I'm on my dinosaur, which I hate because of how damn slow it runs. The ONLY plus about this is that it came with a copy of photoshop for 'trying out' and I've been able to do some stuff with CuriousB, Aelia, and Pooklet's color actions. Seriously, I think this thing is as old as my little brother. [And I don't want any comments suggesting I use Derric's, because that's scary like his mind in there. Just ask him what he's got on there, and you'll regret asking 30 seconds in.]

Anywho, I'm kind of out of commission, seeing as everything I was working on is on my laptop. I'm trying to get it fixed, but depending on how expensive this is going to be, it may be put on hold, considering I've got a baby on the way, and baby > laptop. Which, kind of depresses me, seeing as I may not be able to finish my sim contest this month, or participate in Christmas In July over at GoS. :/ Or the monthly theme, and it might take a LOT of time to finish up some of the requests I was working on.

Well, this is sort of like a mini-vacation, I guess. Not sure if I'll even be active in the community much, since I'll just feel guilty.

Good luck with your laptop. I had the same issue with my Toshiba, and ended up tearing apart the cord to try to find a shortage. Turns out it was the inner power part. I'm not sure how expensive these things are, because I just decided to get my files pulled off and scrap the entire thing. :(

The short's probably in the battery (especially if it's a Dell). That tends to happen with my laptop. What I have to because it is a cheap battery is let it die completely and revive it with a brand new cord. Expensive! Sometimes, it's just easier and less expensive to get a new laptop.

If you need help with anything, let me know. You always offer to help me, this is the least I can do. I'll be happy to do any edits you need. Just spoil yourself (you deserve it, you're carrying a baby :) ) And don't feel guilty. I'm sure everyone understands ^^

Sounds like your battery needs replacing, if you go to a retailer, that can be pretty expensive, but I've replaced mine for basically pittance online after it was doing the same thing on things like ebay and amazon, if you can get things from there where ever you are. Watch out for those actions on the one you're using though... addictive!

Take all the time you need, like you said, you and baby have to come first, don't feel guilty at all! Got to do what keeps you happy and I'm sure whenever you feel like you want to get back into things there will be people who've wondered where you went. ;)
