Computer Woe

Now I’m doing a volunteer teacher training stint in Indonesia and wouldn’t you know my power cord breaks. I can borrow from a student, but that doesn’t help me on weekends and I don’t want to be stuck.

Right now I’m quickly writing with 12% of my batter power remaining. It’s tough to prepare a class and have this limitation.

I checked the price of a new cord from Apple and gulped at the $75 price. Even the generic $25 cost is more than I’d like. Fifteen dollars or just producing cords that don’t break the way phone cords, lamp cords, TV cords, etc. usually don’t.

What’s something you’ve learned to fix yourself? Did it give you

I am rather hopeful that here we can find someone who can fix the cord using a technique like the one above or the other below. I don’t care what my charger looks like and this hack is so appealing. It gives me that joy of fixing something and saving money.

Admittedly, I won’t fix this since I don’t have the tools, but I get satisfaction out of having something repaired rather than just always buying a replacement. Do you?

What’s something you fixed and saved money as a result>
