[Roy](http://www.tamtamcinema.it/foto/2002/3/r_scheider4.jpg) our [iMac G5](http://www.apple.com/imac/), is dead.
Apparently this has [been happening to others](http://www.engadget.com/entry/1234000193034430/), as the part I need is back ordered until June 16.
The power supply used to be [user servicable](http://220.127.116.11/search?q=cache:0tjRF4HTRmQJ:manuals.info.apple.com/en/imacg5_20inch_Power_Supply.pdf imac g5 power supply&hl=en&client=firefox-a) but that is no longer true, so I have to wait for the part, and wait for a tech to make the repair.
Thankfully [Roy](http://www.tamtamcinema.it/foto/2002/3/r_scheider4.jpg) is less than a year old, so we’re getting the at-home repair service, which is sweet. But I’d rather not need any repairs — at home or otherwise.
Since you can no longer see anything on poor [Macsimus](http://www.apple.com/ibook/), our very old G3 iBook, due to either the inverter or the backlight, [Erica](http://www.ericaendicott.com) and I are Mac-less.
I’ve tried working in [Cygwin](http://www.cygwin.com/) on my PC, but it’s not
the same as productive and fun.
I’ve tried working on my [Debian](http://www.debian.org/) server, but since its headless I have to do it through my PC anyway.
I’m taking this way too hard…
