sigh

While down at dinner I ran into Chris, a coworker who speaks Spanish and lives here.  He loaned me a mic, and I have found that it's the mic input that seems to be either blown or turned off somehow.  He tells me that I can do laundry here, which I need to go start, and that the stores are closed on post on the weekends.  So, tomorrow I'll get a cab to the mall and try to get a cell phone for local calls and a headset with a usb input rather than audio jack.  I did feel better after talking to him, although he is one who constantly talks about how dangerous it is.  Now, off to do laundry.

  1. How stable is the 110 power over there? Do you have a real battery powered UPS on them? If not it sounds like it might well be worth the investment huh?

  2. I don't think it was power, as I think the conversion to 12VDC transformer would take the hit then. I have sound again now, though, on my other laptop, so the pressure is off on this one. A UPS wouldn't be a bad idea, though...
