*sigh* Bloody hell...

A day lost to a broken iBook.

The battery problem turned out to be just the battery. The Genius Bar folks at the UTC Apple Store swapped it out, it ran fine. I had to run down to Fashion Valley to buy a replacement, UTC was out. They tested the ethernet too, and it worked fine in the store. I got home, no dice. Turns out the jack worked loose from the logic board. Same problem that spiked my sister's iBook a couple of years ago. Took me an hour to disassemble this thing. Soldered the connector back down, put it back together, I only had three screws left over!
