AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH.

This is really really getting tiresome. Like, a lot. I woke up today, picked my laptop up off of the table, lifted it over to me on the couch, and... my screen broke. Again. The hinge holding the left side of the screen to the laptop itself siezed, much in the way that the hinge holding the right side of the screen to the laptop siezed a couple of months ago. Before that incident, the screen had developed a 1"-wide band of interlacing in the middle of the screen. And then there's the fact that this is just a terribly flaky laptop to begin with.

With all of the cutbacks at work, I know there's no way I'm going to get them to get me a new laptop, and convincing Dell to replace this laptop is going to be next to impossible. This wouldn't bother me so much except that I use my laptop for everything. I have another computer set up at home, but it exists only to play games on. My laptop is where I spend all of my real time on my computer, and having it fall apart every time I turn around is really getting quite tedious.
