Female Dogging

To the left you can see my taped up Macbook power supply which still sort of worked. The bend in the cable is not a very clever design, mine was not the only one to start having problems there. Damage can be worse though. Some time after this initial repair, it only worked if I got it to bend the right way.

Until today. Very inconveniently it completely failed on my first day back at school (=work). Luckily a colleague was willing to help and we split it open. I shortened the cable a bit and duck taped the thing back together. It works. The bit of cable I removed did smell kind of funny, like plastic melted on a barbecue...

It does fit in rather nicely with the state university equipment now, as you can see on the right
