So, I’ve been taking some computer science classes. My teacher is just great, and she is very funny. In class she’ll say things like “NEVER!!! Pass a class or struct by value! NEVER!” Also, she’ll talk about how her stuff on the bottom of her stairs compares to a sorting algorithm and stuff. Anyway, it is total nerd joke stuff, and I love it! hahaha. So one day I got the idea to make a drawing of her with something she says. Then I turned the drawing into some bookmarks and magnets. I did give some to her, and she laughed. LOL. Plus the TAs seem to like them too. This photo is of one of the magnets. ;)
Hi All! Just wanted to share the Trump stickers I made. They’ll be available in my etsy shop as soon as I put the listings up. LOL. I’ve got the whole gang one up in the shop now. Trying to cultivate some hope and happiness in these trying times.
Hi! I don’t know if anyone will find this useful, but if you happen to have a Mac laptop that has the anti-reflective coating coming off, Apple will replace your display for free! That will save you about $800!!! The not-very-publicized recall put into place by Apple is in response to what has been termed “Staingate.”
I didn’t know what was wrong with my screen. I thought I just couldn’t get it clean, so I looked it up online, and determined that it was the anti-reflective coating that had come off around where the keyboard hits the middle of the screen. Usually you can still use your display with the problem, but it can get REALLY annoying. The first time I looked up the issue I didn’t see any way to resolve it. Then about a week ago I was looking online and stumbled across this MacRumors article: https://www.macrumors.com/2017/11/17/apple-extends-free-staingate-repairs/ (Thank You MacRumors!). The article says that they will replace it up to three years from purchase date, but I believe it is up to four years from purchase date.
I was actually past the timeframe, and I was really bummed out (I had missed it by three months). Fortunately, a great service tech at CityMac told me I should contact Apple and see if they could make an exception. I contacted Apple, and they did! I’m pleased to say that I also had a good customer service experience with Apple this time. In the past I had had terrible customer service.
I’m now typing behind a shiny new AND CLEAR computer screen. Yay!
So, if you have this problem, you can take it into an Apple store, or go to an Authorized Retailer like CityMac. You can also contact Apple and mail your computer in if you prefer. Good luck and good computing!
