power adaptor burning Just half an hour before I need to head out to the airport and what do I see? My MacBook Pro power adaptor is at it again -- what the heck is wrong with these things? Last time it burned through at the magsafe connector, this time its happening at the base.

First stop in Chicago will be by the Apple store getting another piece of expensive hardware that will probably last me just a few months.

Just have to hope it doesn't burn down the house next time round.
