Safari 1.1 and PowerBook Woe

Apparently Safari 1.1 is out for/in Panther, but isn't available for download yet if you're using 10.2 (Jaguar).

It might come out for download after the weekend, I suppose.

In other news, I got home from work yesterday, checked my mail and noticed that something about the way my right wrist was sitting on the laptop wasn't quite right.

I'm just assuming--because of its placement--that the crack is due to me using the trackpad. The thing is (paint flecks withstanding), I take very good care of my laptop. I love this laptop. I would be mortified if anything were to happen to it. I do not, for example, lean on it or, say, hit it with a hammer where the CDRW/DVD drive is.

Apple, unsurprisingly, isn't sure whether this is a warranty problem covered by AppleCare or not. That's not even taking into account the fact that if you press the case near the power button at the top right, it's just as if you've pressed it - the "Are you sure you want to shut down your computer now?" dialog pops up.

Because Apple aren't sure whether this is covered by warranty or not, I have to lug this to an Apple Authorised Service Provider, ask them nicely to see if they think it's covered and then get it fixed. Or pay for it.

Meanwhile, my home contents insurance is calling me back on Monday just in case this isn't covered.

I occasionally contemplate getting a Mac laptop, but then these tales of unending woe put me off...
