Wasn't sure if I should hijack a thread or start a new one... but since this one seems to have a fair amount of battery health coverage, I thought I'd just hijack.

It's a Logitech VX450. The receiver is plugged directly into a MBP USB port (i.e. not through a USB hub).

Which is I what I realized.

There's no need for me to run SMC (there was on my old notebook).

Right. The thing is, SMC doesn't do anything different from the EFI (thanks for the term) -- I kept SMC sitting at 2000 RPM, which is what the EFI is keeping the fans at now (without SMC). My...

Gotcha.

I used SMC more to monitor than to control the fans -- after all, if my fans were set to 2,000 RPM and the temps went up to 80, the Mac OS would still kick up the control mode to higher...

Converting logs from Pidgin to Adium

The basic question is simple: how do I get Pidgin logs (Windows) into Adium?

Background information is more complex.

1) My Pidgin logs are mostly .txt files (some .html, but the important ones...

I think that makes sense... if I keep the two-prong adapter plugged into a grounded power strip, does that cover me well enough?

Or should I use the grounded cord at all times?

Generally, my MBP stays at home on my desk -- every so often, one a week, say, I'll take it with me. When...

I think Paintbrush will suffice for what I was getting at. Thanks!
