case in point: my ibook's trackpad has started to stutter in the last few days, which is bad, and not in the sense of michael jackson, because i cannot afford to replace the battery of said computer, much less finance the fix of a trackpad. it was getting steadily and noticably worse.
but you know what fixes it? unplugging the power cord. let me repeat that, in case it was too stupid to even comprehend:
i fix my trackpad problems by unplugging the power cord.
*throws hands in air* why can't anything i own be normal? why?
