So today I got a new multi-plug extension cord so I could have both my internet connection and laptop plugged in at the same time (I pretty much have one socket per room so I needed some adapters).

I was so excited that the adapter could take my US style plug that I tried it without my Uganda style plug adapter, that just happened to have a fuse to protect against power surges.

You can guess what happened next....a huge power surge came through, blowing up my lightbulbs as well as the AC adapter for my laptop. I write this on the last 20% of my 1st battery (I have two more laptop batteries). Once those are gone, no more computer for me!

so until I can figure out how to get a new adapter I will probably just log in once a day to check my email.

Looks like I may be Kampala bound to try to find a universal adapter. I have found that almost no one will ship computer supplies to Uganda from the US or the UK.

Hopefully I'll be back sooner rather than later.


Carl: Sounds like this is quite the adventure! Glad I found out about the link! Andy is very jealous.

Hi Margaret...glad you found the site. Heard the baby should be here any day, that is very exciting!
