Regarding the Dell Computer (Incident: 30726783)


Funny that you should ask about the 180W adapter, because I was able to dodge storms and flat tires this weekend long enough to link up with a friend from West Texas who ordered one of those 180W adapters from that troublesome company up in Minnesota and added a cigarette lighter plug. The adapter is in place on the chair and working. In fact, I just ran the laptop’s diagnostics to see how many watts it thought the adapter was generating, and was surprised to see 240. That should be more than enough, but we do still have an anomaly (and that’s why I added Carlos and Erick to the distribution list).

If I put enough of a load on the system, it will start cycling back and forth between the battery and external power roughly every three seconds. This isn’t a big problem because I can configure the power plan so both modes appear to be the same on-screen, but I suppose it would eventually drain the battery if I somehow ran Lilly hard enough long enough. Then again, that would also tend to drain my wheelchair batteries so I’m unlikely to go to those extremes. It is, however, something for Alienware to dig into and investigate.

Great news on Lilly! Any issues with the 180 power requirements?

I’ll take care of Farat.

Would you please muzzle Farat? The poor guy has not a clue, and I seriously doubt Dedet’s “teeth” are sharp enough to make the slightest impression upon his hide.

In other news, “Lilly” is measuring up quite nicely to the reputation of its namesake and preceding M15. Not even bright sunlight or nasty weather have deterred it from its assigned tasks.
