I prefer 2000 myself, but 97 (or 98 ony iBook) is my go-to because I can get it on WinWorld.

Although, for my 68k, I like AppleWorks 5. This and Acta make a fine writing machine. Would be great portable if a working battery for the PowerBook 500 series existed.

I've seen people on r/VintageApple talk about repacking old PowerBook batteries (They carefully crack them open, and replace the worn out cells with fresh ones), so that much is at least possible :3

So I have the day off, and was honestly thinking about going for a hike...and of course it starts raining when I wake up xD

Performa Classic

I have a NiMH battery. Could I replace with Li-ion components?

Penti-chan

That I'm not sure of :O

Performa Classic

I mean, if I want to fix the battery, I want to make the battery stronger, better, than before.

And less likely to explode in a computer-ruining way.

If I recall correctly, one isn't supposed to replace battery cells with ones of a different type, as the technology involved in each type of battery is different.

Performa Classic

Yeah, that makes sense. Especially since this is one of those Intelligent Batteries.

>TFW drinking entirely too much coffee

Hālian

I don't drink coffee, as I can't stand the taste. Same with liquor, plus the added wrinkle of ASD + booze → angry drunk, usually.

Penti-chan

I like coffee, but granted, I come from a family of coffee drinkers xD
(Just, if I drink too much of it, it messes with my stomach)

I enjoy a cup of joe once in a while. But I cream it up to make it sweeter.

I'm a cheap drunk but none of my friends have explained me as having a noticable personality change when I am.

Penti-chan

I've grown to like creamer in my coffee; like, it does seem to lessen the impact on my stomach of drinking it. Plus, if I want some alcohol in the morning, my dad has introduced me to putting a little Irish cream in it :3

As for alcohol...I've never been too drunk, but I have been buzzed before from having a bit too much to drink, with me most commonly feeling sleepy as a result. TBH, I sometimes use whiskey and other liquors as a sleep aid, because of this.

Goujer

Straight or as a mix?

Penti-chan

Depends on what I have. Sometimes I mix a whiskey and Coke, other times I drink it straight (Honey whiskey is fantastic for just sipping on)

Performa Classic

I'm not much of a coffee drinker personally, but if it's offered to me or if it's coffee-flavored, I'm all over it.

Once the allure of drinking wore off after I turned 21, it doesn't interest me. Though one time I was buzzed after drinking a particularly foul wine cooler and had heartburn (likely not related to the alcohol) and intense sleepiness.

I'm more of a fan of spirits in my experience. Before I turned 21 (ono), I had a nice spirit and more proper wine which I felt tasted good.
