Heated towel rack went cold. New one ordered.
Kate's iPhone went black and refused to start up. Fixed by Genius Bar.
iPod nano nonresponsive. Brought back (for now) by fiddling with lock switch.
Mac mini refused to read or eject CD or even to acknowledge existence of drive. CD extracted by brute force, tape placed over slot to prevent problem from recurring (I very rarely use the optical drive on that machine).
That's all in the last WEEK. Can we hold off for a while now, please?
