In the immortal words of the Byrds, “There is a season / turn, turn, turn ” — hang on, wrong part of the song.

As I was saying, in the immortal words of the Byrds, “[there is] a time to be born, a time to die.” For our friend Angi’s iPod Nano, the former was February, 2006, and the latter was now.

The battery in the Nano just wouldn’t hold a charge anymore, which made it less of a portable music player, and more a small, shiny rectangle. Instead of tossing it, she asked if could change the battery for her.

I said sure, why not? I was positive that a stiff shot of liquor would calm my nerves and steady my hands. Besides, it wasn’t like it was my Nano, or anything. gulp.

All the details and an lurid electronic pictures can be found in the gallery.

    Thank you very much! I never had a doubt you could do it.
    My trusty little Nano will be getting a bit of a work out. And I’m glad I could have the appropriate song title for you to show.
