    Power cord for iBook fell in pitcher of water
    This may sound like a crazy story, but last night, I detached the power cord from my iBook but left the cord plugged into the wall. What I didn't know (it was dark) was that I had left a pitcher of water on the floor from watering the plants - and the power cord had fallen into the pitcher! When I woke up and found it sitting in the water, the metal tip was totally corroded; I cleaned it the best I could, but the metal is still a copper color. I tried plugging it into the laptop and it actually works fine! But I'm wondering if there's anything I should be worried about? Could the cord somehow harm the laptop?

    As long as it was dry when you inserted it you should be fine.
    How were the flowers?

    The first copper-plated power cord! I wonder if it works better than the normal ones....
