It's no longer a non-functioning Mac, it is now officially a door stop. After an anxious two week wait the repair technician called me at lunchtime and said that my iBook needs a new motherboard. Which the cynic in me translates to "it's dead as a Dodo and we're hoping that replacing the motherboard will fix it. What have we got to lose?".
Regardless, the price they quoted to fix it was about a hundred dollars less than buying an entirely new machine. I declined and they are shipping it back to me where it will make an attractive addition to the bottom of my study door. With a bit of luck that kilo or so of white plastic will stop it swinging when the wind gets up.
Je suis tres, tres, desole.
