Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
For the last few weeks my laptop's power jack has been acting weird. I have to sometimes rotate around my charging plug to get the laptop to stop charging. Then, while charging, it'll just stop charging for apparently no reason.
I did a little reading and it looks like these are symptoms of a laptop's DC / power jack being loose or breaking from the laptop motherboard and it's pretty common.
Does anyone have any experience with this and getting it repaired? Many guides say you can do it yourself with a soldering gun but, well I've ever soldered anything in my life.
If anyone has any advice on where to take it near Allston (Boston), MA that would also be great.
