Computer Trouble

As I suspected, the problem with the laptop is the AC adapter. It runs fine off the batteries, but when plugged into an outlet – no juice.

A colleague of Joy’s tried three different shops to see if they had an adapter for sale, but no luck. (It’s an old computer.) The next step is to see if we can find someone to repair the adapter. I’d never heard of that before, as people will typically replace them when they go bad, but as Gerlinda said, “This is Phnom Penh, baby.”

I’m still reading from the photocopied materials I brought with me from London, so the dissertation isn’t too affected at this point. I will, however, need a working computer eventually. I have some materials (especially on land issues) that are electronic only.
