Mercury Is In Retrograde

And that's why my computer is acting up according to the unemployed boy next door. That or it's a known bug which, according to the Dell user forums, may very well be the case. I need to "reseat" my flex cable and/or replace the backlight and/or inverter. But that's the beauty of the unemployed boy next door - lots and lots of time for him to read manuals and troubleshooting guides and then fiddle with the hardware at no charge. Oh, sure, I'll take him out to dinner some night to thank him, but it sure beats paying the price at CompUSA or whichever other computer retailer I'd ultimately have to visit if he can't fix it for me.
