Yeah, sorry about the delay and the mass upload. I have a talent for knackering laptop cables, and the little blue Acer gave up the ghost. I thought I'd trashed the charging pin again, but it turns out it was actually the wire itself that gave out inside the casing of the plug.
This was a good thing though, as it's MUCH cheaper to repair than trying to fuse the pin. So yeah, the nice bloke at All Spares picked it up from Maplins (thanks lads!) and fixed it all for me.
Whilst waiting for it to come home, I redesigned Sandy's tank. Baffled by the re-do, she had a nibble on a plastic leaf. It wasn't so great it seems, so she was delighted when I served up some tasty real greens. We're going for a jungle theme, if you hadn't guessed. Suggestions welcome.
