Well then, what a difference a week makes..... Last Sunday my SuperDrive in my 1GHz PowerBook decided to start misbehaving..... http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?threadid=22813 Well I rang Apple on Monday morning, to arrange for it to be picked up, although I had my doubts as I'm sure we were speaking different languages!! Apparantly my name is Garby Karby according to Apple and DHL..... Anyway the DHL man turned up at 2pm Wednesday to pick it up..... with stickers telling me it was been sent to the land of sausages for repair (it's an Apple thing) anyways, because it was quite late in the day, Midweek, I wasn't expecting it back until atleast the following Wednesday... (my experiences with Applecare vary, best been a week service, worst taking from November 2001, to the following bleeding year)... however 11am this morning (Friday) the DHL man turns up again, and I was so sure that it was a mistake and that they were bringing me another empty box to take the pi$$ but no... it was heavy.... it was from the land of David Hasselhoff fans... it was back!!!! Any how all seems well now, a new SuperDrive installed that doesn't keep spitting out like some kind of cheap whore... just as god intended!... But which ever way you look at it..... from 2pm Wednesday, to 11am Friday via Frankfurt for repair... is pretty impressive!! I can tell you though, it's been a long, long week without my Mac...... I don't ever want to go there again... ever... it's a cold, evil place to be!! Wicked!!
