He understands the business of money so much better. And with him taking over the invoicing, reconciliation and all the tax associated business, I no longer have to battle and focus on what I do best, which is the writing end of the business.
Fixed the laptop issues
|The small widgets allow the universal |
adaptor to fit into any laptop.
Firstly, I established that there was nothing majorly wrong with the laptop itself. The problem was with the adaptor, which seemed to have burned out, for some reason. Got a quote for an adaptor from Incredible Connection for R799, and from Matrix in a similar price range. My laptop is old, so i wasn't keen on spending too much money on parts.So, for a while, I was stuck. Until I saw a computer shop this morning in Braamfontein, at the corner of Stiemens and De Beer. The guy had a universal adaptor for R250.00.
Granted, universal adaptors are cheaper [weird considering they are more convenient], but you'd think the two retail stores would also have given me the option, instead of trying to sell me a more expensive adaptor. It's so annoying how salespeople sometimes withold information that would allow you to get a product that works for you just fine at a lower price, and keep punting the more expensive option as the only option!
