Fuck Fuckity (Screen Falls Off Computer) 2

Well, shit.

I’ve had some ongoing problems with the hinge on my computer, and my screen has been flopping backward more and more violently for a couple of months now.

Now it’s gotten to the point where it flopped backward so violently earlier this week that it actually damaged the case, and is becoming dangerously close to damaging the screen.

I called Apple to see if it would be covered and the answer was a resounding “maybe.” If they decide it’s not covered when I take it in tomorrow morning, then I’m out minimum $250, possibly a lot more.

In any case, the comp’s going into the shop for at least a week (I had a RAM slot die about six months ago, though fortunately at least getting the logic board replaced is definitely covered by the extended warranty).

So, no blogging, limited email (I will at least be working so I can get my email that way), and way more free time than it’s likely a good idea for me to have for the next week or two.

Happy new year to me!

    That happened to my old laptop. I had to prop the screen against a wall for it to stay up. It was the last straw that convinced me to buy a new one.

    God bless being able to beg and plead until they agree to cover it under the extended warranty :).
