So, while I was packing, a funny thing happened:

I picked up a roll of tape that had been lying on top of a ceramic coaster, the tape took the coaster with it, the coaster detached itself midflight, and a corner of the coaster hit my laptop's screen, cracking it badly and rendering somewhere between a half to two-thirds of the screen inoperable.

As you know, I am quite penniless at present, with no prospect of securing a new source of income. Consequently, it is far from clear when my laptop can be repaired (or, more likely, replaced: the casing had been dented, the battery was dead, the power cord was fraying, having been halfheartedly repaired using floral tape...). My posting to this forum is therefore likely to be hampered for some time, although I will try to continue playing.

On second thought, it probably won't be that bad. I will probably manage to post from other computers on a fairly regular basis. Just thought I should let you know.

Ouch. I'm sorry to hear that; hope you can get a replacement machine soon. :-/

Yes, I hope so too, although I don't know when that will happen.

OTOH, I'm probably much closer to you now.

I have an external monitor now, so the laptop is rendered at least somewhat usable... posting will resume accordingly.

Ouch I'm in a similar situation myself. I'm using my niece's computer for everything computer related. My laptop works fine except that I can't get power into it to charge the battery or run it. I also have no money. Fun, fun, fun. Relying on other computers is annoying.
