So my computer finally cracked.

I'm in the library right now.  The LIBRARY.  On one of the Look-Up-Books-Here computers, with the huge, grimy keyboards that stick funny and catch your fingers if you try to type at anything remotely resembling a reasonable speed.  OH, THE INDIGNITY...!

Yeah, the backlight on my laptop seems to have given up the ghost once and for all.  Well, it was trying, but all efforts failed.  I'm going to try to take it in to one or many of the computer stores within walking distance after class.

I really shouldn't bother going to class, seeing as how this whole disaster thing efficiently prevented me from printing out the essay for said class, which I was up until three working on.  Lovely little sequence of events, that.  Positively charming.

Anyway, the Computer Gods alone know when I'll be able to get on.  Sometimes the screen works when it feels like it, and it might be inclined this afternoon, but I'm just going to lug it in today.  I just can't have a computer that works unpredictably.  That would result in a great deal of failure of classes.

Yeah, so... Peace out, kids.  I'll be back ASAP.  Hopefully sooner rather than later, before I lose my little mind.

Stationed: the LIBRARY...!

Oh noes! I'm sorry. Computers can be sooooo annoying!

Yeah... Guess that's what I get for buying the damn thing refurbished on eBay instead of forking over enough cash to get a REAL machine. XD

:( Poor backlight! I will miss you in your absence of indeterminable length!

Do all library keyboards get soda spilled on them or something?

Perhaps we should have an LJ candlelit vigil for the backlight. Though I'm not entirely sure how that would work...

I dunno exactly why they are as they are. I think mostly just 'cause so many people's grimy fingers get all over them, like mine are doing now. XD
