lookin' good

Reward...

This post is my most recent reward for another 45 minutes of: pick up item, identify item, place item in correct pile, (File--separate piles of all items that go together in one of my files; Act--one pile for all those things which despite lying in a pile of crap in my basement for weeks or months, I still actually have to do something with them; Destroy--this decision is generally rewarded by a satisfying shredder motor noise).

Thanks for the tunes, valiskeogh.

That fast shutdown you just saw (if you have me on your IM lists)...

was me doing an emergency power down, unplug, battery removal--to deal with the bubble soap Quinn just dumped on my laptop.

Luckily he just hit the back corner where the fans, heatsink, and vents are--and it looks like he missed the fans. Oh dear...update..he missed one of the fans...anyone know if the fans on an Inspiron 8200 ever operate independently?

Didn't think so.

Sigh.
