My assistant, Sarah, has an iBook with a dead logic board, so I convinced her to hack it open and save the hard drive… which she did! It was fucking impressive…
Awesome! A few months ago I replaced the hard drive in my G4 iBook. I’d never done anything close to that level of disassembly. I had seven or eight pieces of paper with maps for the screws drawn on them.
I used this: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Mac/iBook-G4-14-Inch/Hard-Drive-Replacement/84/15/
That’s the site we used!
Dude, you should learn to program. It’s less typing than writing, and people actually care about the result (unlike poetry. Let’s face it, nobody likes internet poetry except the author, and almost all of it sucks. I’ve written internet poetry, and I stand by my assertion.)
I’m personally due for a skill-upgrade myself, so if you’re interested to learn Erlang programming language or Google App Engine, let me know. Given that you probably don’t have any programming experience, you probably don’t have any habits, so you can learn new ideas from scratch.
Unfortunately, I use emacs as a program editor which requires “chords” of keys. VIM would probably be great for you, though I don’t know it well. I’d have to learn it to teach you (something I’ve been meaning to do anyways…)
I know internet poetry sucks, and I know that nobody cares about it. I don’t even think what I wrote constitutes a poem. I just don’t care that nobody cares. I had a silly idea and I wrote it. I write because I like it. I don’t know that I’m trying to create “results.”
I’m not talking about your poetry, but poetry in general.
Sylvia Plath is pretty well-remembered… Kurt Cobain turned random lines of poetry into some amazing songs…
Nobody sees it but me )
