went to kmart. bought expensive little round batteries. all is well. kmart is my friend.
speaking of batteries, I'm not happy with the battery life of my powerbook. it only has like 3:15, max. but it charges really fast, so... hrm. I'm also not happy with the text editor situation. I seriously can't find one. I'm still using emacs, because it does syntax highlighting, but I can't cut and paste into it from other OSX applications.
I am happy about how everyone says, "Damn, that is a sexy laptop." yes it is. I'm also happy with the quick easy cd burning capabilities. so it's not all bad. actually it's mostly good and I'm still glad I bought it, it just takes some adjustment.
