OK, I think I'm back!

I'm sure both of my readers (myself included, though not my fiance [grumble]) have been missing me terribly during this brief outage, but the power issues on the ole laptop have been addressed. It seems the old Magsafe adapter for the macbook got ripped out a few too many times by by dogs with the zoomies, people in the dark, and all the various things that would previously have sent the computer crashing to the floor.

I guess a new power cord is a smaller price to pay than a new motherboard, case and hard drive.

Anyway, I should be back with some semblance of a schedule, and the promised Galileoscope review soon. The only problem with the review is that the summer skies in Florida are very rarely good for sky watching. I've had a grand total of an hour spread over several nights to see some small part of the skies. I will say that even through some haze, I did see 3 of Jupiter's moons. Saturn is still too low on the horizon to see.

I'm so happy that I don't have to squish and hold the power cord to get computer use! Typing with one hand (the wrong one at that) was really annoying.

Welcome back from computer near death.

It is so cool that your could see some of Jupiter's moons with such an inexpensive scope.
