Dug Cr48 out after retiring it.

With my tablet dead I dug my CR48 out and realizing why, even with a lightish distro (Peppermint 6) I shelved it.

Anyone know where I could get a replacement for the internal wifi thing? This thing keeps losing wifi for... random reasons. I'd opened it up once and everything seems well connected.

Pity the whole 'ram timing' thing wouldn't help Ditto for the inability to drop a dual core processor in to make day to day browsing less of a chore.

Also does anyone know how to find someone that could repack the battery with fresh cells?

Casheer literally taking the shirt off guy's back? Fine. you're making a point at how high the prices are.

Swatting the guy's drink out of his hand? No. I am not giving you my business because you're trying to play into my anger. 

These ads are getting too aggressive and actually are making me not want to give you my money.

Battery Troubles

My nook HD tablet's battery isn't wanting to charge this is a disgrace since it's only been a year and change. the laptop Google sent me? Ye Olde Underpowered CR48? After five years and nearly /destroying/ the keyboard to the point the letters and f/j guide bumps are gone... still gives 3ish hours of battery.

Technically the nook HD is not user serviceable, but if newpower99 still sells replacements, intend on ordering one end of the week.

Newpower99's product page for the NookHD replacement Battery.

Well this is potentially disturbing. Tablet's plugged in but it's saying it's not charging. Power light is on and shows charging. So I dunno. Using the brick it came with.

Using a nook HD I got for Christmas 2013.

So far did a device wipe.
Tried diferent outlets.
Tried a couple different power bricks (none of which were barns and noble bricks so that they didn't work is debatable at best on meaning anything.)
Trying to get hold of one of mom's friends that does refurbishing as a hobby to see if he has a brick/chord in case it's that instead of battery.

Well got under the doghouse bricked up so puppies hopefully can't get under there. They seemed less than pleased at this addition to their home.

Well tablet just died, after only being used for a year and a half.. Laptop's gotten tons of use in five years and the battery is still good to go.

This is annoying since by designs tablets seem to be disposable. I don't want to dispose of mine.

Terminator Franchise Theory
Skynet never intended on exterminating humanity. Either it viewed the whole judgement day thing as bringing all of humanity together under a single global event to wipe out all prejudices, ideological, social, and national grudges to face a collective threat that will become Legend, or it was trying to make humanity super-badass because aliens and we need to prep for war with them. So while it did R&D on weapons that just so happen. To be human usable in spite of it and its troops all being machines it made sure there would be no national bickering or racial potshots or the like. Plus it makes the planet looks suddenly less appealing, which might deter ET even more.

After all if it wanted to kill us just spit out Ebola and anthrax by the tanker plane load. It doesn't have to care how lethal the bio agents stay. Ditto with nerve gas or VX or the like. We have millions of ways to murder each other and it picks a standing army that uses weapons and vehicles we can adapt for our own use? Almost seems like it doesn't really want to win.

Also why work prisoners that are frail, hard to control, unpredictable, and liable to sabotage anything when you can just stamp out more machines? I can sorta get having a honeypot to draw humans in to kill, but again why bother when you can just unleash ebolasupercanceraids 2.0 on the word's population?

Windows 10 insider preview is updating to 10158. I've seen a few leaked builds on youtube, so not a total surprise.

I just wish the update process would go faster!
