Minor annoyances

February 2, 2012

I’m just about to enjoy a good book about Sharepoint development, so I start looking for my ebook reader, Elonex 500EB, that I bought about a year ago, find it in one of my drawers, it boots and then immediately shutdowns.

So figuring the battery is depleted, I grab a USB charger and connect it to the ebook reader, the thing automatically boots, then shutdowns, then boots, then shutdowns. I leave it sitting there running in circles a few hours and the thing just seems broken, probably the battery that’s dead.

The reason why I’m telling you this is because I got a Canon X-07 from 1983 for free today, and guess what, the thing still works, like clockwork.
