Another Cursed Day!
I got to school this morning and lo and behold, the mouse on my Mac had totally died!
That’s three Macs afflicted in the space of 12 hours! A Cube, a G4 Powerbook and now my Mac Mini!
It was the start of a second bizarre day!
A complete reinstall of the driver software for said mouse brought it back to working order.
Then, I got back home to the apartment and the lift broke down! It stopped on the fifth floor for no apparent reason. The other lift was similarly stuck on the fifth floor and refused several attempts to move. Against better judgment, I persisted pressing the door close and ninth floor buttons and the lift capitulated after couple of minutes (by which time I could have walked).
Further strangeness ensued with the washing machine: A regular load of washing refused to wash, instead showing “E51”, which translates to “Call the blokes in the blue overalls!”
Unplugging it and plugging it back in reset it and it now seems to be none the worse for wear.
Let’s hope this is the end of it!
