Apple is recalling 1.8 million batteries given out between 2003 and 2006 in iBook G4s and Powerbook G4s that may overheat and catch fire. It turns out I'm the lucky owner of such a battery (my battery's serial number is in the ranges given). So I ordered a new one. Great. If you own an iBook or Powerbook you better have a look at this. It seems to be that battery recall time of year, not so long ago I think Dell also recalled batteries didn't they?
Anyway, there's good news too. My thesis is done! I just brought it to the printer/binder this morning. Just little over one week more to go and I'll be going back to Holland. Hooray!
