which comp do you have? imac? i'd say you just buck up and buy the cable if it doesn't work, well, see if you can guilt your mom into paying for it or something.
Yeah, it's an iMac. Deceptively heavy little bugger. My mother's actually already offered to pay for the cable, since she knows I'm so stingy that I don't feel like forking out for it, but I want to waste her money even less than I want to waste my own.

I just wish I could find somebody with an adaptor I could borrow. I only need a single usage to determine if it's what I need or not!

At my show, right smack in the middle, Radiohead played Paranoid Android, followed by Just.

The crowd was elated, to say the least. It's an incredible thing to hear; the crowd knew every word of both.

Paranoid Android followed by Just and you survived? I would have spontaneously combusted.

Well, it's all so fucking good that it doesn't matter anyway.

I'm kind of tempted to post to the Melbourne LJ community to see if anybody has one they'd let me borrow. Though maybe I should just buy one and figure it'll come in useful at some later date even if I don't need it now.

Though it'd be a Mac cable and who knows if I'll keep using Mac. If I get a laptop, quite frankly I'd most want it to be a Windows XP laptop.
