    I purchased a A1618 battery for my 2015 15 MBP and it was a nightmare from day one. Once installed, the computer would shut down at random percentages even after multiple battery calibrations and SMC/PRAM resets it still acts up. Even when installed in a MPB with an iGPU only it still shuts down...

    Replacement screws for Power Mac G4 power supplies?

    Today I learnt the hard way that if you use the wrong type and quality of Phillips head screwdriver, you run the risk of stripping the head of the screw. While it ain’t too bad, it just kinda looks off to me. I have to get my (diagnosed) OCD under control... Wondering if there are any wholesale...
