Sadly, I mean that literally. I came home yesterday and the wires on my power adapter seem to have magically popped out. One might assume this was one of my cats up to no good. I know my girls though they are not chewers. In all reality, it simply appears they were just bent in the same position for too long and popped out of their rubber casing. Now, I have no working power adapter. I am about to run out of battery life literally in less than 9 minutes. I contacted Gateway since the computer is less than a year old. It may take 2-3 weeks before I have an new adapter. In the meantime, I most likely will be unable to make any new posts to my blog.
