The replacement power supply has arrived from Hong Kong, and it appears to more or less work! So I have turned on the EEE once more and am using it.
Not that I have anything in particular to say, but it’s still nice.
I also got a little microphone for my Ipod (which also works), so I can more easily make bootlegs of electroacoustic music concerts record, um, completely uncopyrighted personal things. Speaking of which – on Tuesday I’m making a Proper Studio Recording of the arias from I Puritani, and will post the results when I get them.
