Hardware!

My laptop died the final death this morning. The display wouldn't come up (even showing boot display) and when I tried it with a second monitor the result was the same. It was an older machine, but it was serviced by Dell just a couple of months ago. Of course, they damaged the bezel in the process, and did not make good on their promise to repair/replace the damaged bezel.

I've had my fill of DELL "repair" as of now - they've lost me as a customer henceforth. I'll write off the ~$800 I spent having the laptop "repaired" (for all the six weeks or so that it gave me of service). I'll go back to HP products. Maybe I can get a LITTLE bit better service from HP.

In the meantime, if I need a laptop, I'll switch back to my ancient Canon 386 system (which runs Windows 95, and which I bought some 17 years ago - and which still runs, thank you).
