This is not what my laptop screen is supposed to look like:
Expensive laptop + 11-month-old child = really glad we sprung for the accidental damage warranty add-on. Otherwise, I’d be finding out just how expensive an LCD screen is.
Right now I’m getting by with my laptop hooked up to my husband’s computer screen, but that’s only a temporary work-around (eventually, Steve’s going to want it back). Soon, hopefully, I’ll be receiving the box from Dell that I can pack the computer in to ship off to their depot for repairs. But that’s going to be a very long couple of weeks… And it will probably be a quiet couple of weeks for The Sarah Winchester of Fiber Arts, so let me apologize in advance. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make it up to you. Heck, without access to my laptop, I might actually get some knitting and sewing done!
Edit: I’ll give this to Dell–they’re quick. I called 2 days ago to report that I needed the repair; the shipping box was on my front step yesterday. I might’ve been able to get the laptop out yesterday, but I started experiencing separation anxiety. But, as one of my Ravelry friends pointed out, the sooner I ship it out, the sooner I’ll get it back…and the depot is in nearby Houston. The DHL pick-up is scheduled for no later than 5 pm today…
