Apple Time Capsule catches plague

Been there

Exact same thing happened to mine, purchased long enough ago to be about 3 or 4 months out of warranty.

Opened it up and removed the internal power supply (discharging capacitors with a worrying crash and flash) and sure enough the suspect capacitors were dead and bulging.

Luckily I was able to follow the instructions elsewhere and cobble together a working fix with the Cisco ADP-30RB external psu. My TC seems quite happy now

Failry poor piece of design really (the fan inside does in effect nothing since there is nowhere for it to exhaust to), especially when presumably the only reason for internal psu was to avoid the ungraceful need for an external psu.

Beer set to hit four quid a pint

Try living in Oslo!

Once again the universe takes it upon itself to dump on me from a great height.

I've been working in Oslo for the past nine months and finally come to terms with the £5 pint (plus or minus 50p say for local Ringnes chemical pish, gets up to around £7 or more for owt decent, especially down Aker Brygge).

I'm finally leaving this Friday to return to the UK, and was looking forward to getting change from a fiver for 2 pints. And then this!
