Indeed! I was able to buy a new power cord at MicroCenter today--it's labeled for a laptop but fits and works just fine...

>>I think there was recently an article somewhere -- maybe Rob Pegoraro in the Post ?-- about how those power plugs/bricks/adapters should be standardized

Yes...it was Rob and I read the article and I agreed!

>>I can still remember when Mr. E used the wrong power cord (from a Zip drive, I discovered later) to plug in a dial-up modem. Fried that modem.

Why am I not surprised...'-}}
