Greetings from Lain!
Holy bright and shiny, I did it! Lain is alive! It's been down for three weeks; it looks like there's weakness in the battery, but otherwise it's gorgeous. The screen is so bright and so shiny now, it's completely resurrected from the dead. I can't believe how good it looks. Wireless is back up, and even the transfer rates are decent.

Considering that Omaha and I actually diassembled the monitor and unglued part of the LCD screen to get at the broken backlight, the fact that it worked astounds me. Is it bad that I have a couple of screws left? (I do, and I'm not sure where they go, but everything seems to be kosher.) Even though the "suspend on lid closure" button seems to be slightly more recessed than when I started, it works fine. The keyboard is familiar as always.

Now to get some actual work done. Although with a monitor so bright, watching anime is really tempting...

Current Mood: ecstatic ecstatic

thats what all things are like for me at my desktop...very bright/shiny and crisp as hell. I have a plasma screen that kicks major booty,although its a little small for my tastes the liqui-screen takes the cake on those old fashioned computer monitors.(although when I read most writing with a bright white background I tend to get bleary eye'd after awhile)

I recently bought a laptop offa' someone for $80. So far I've somehow gotten everything working except the LCD backlight. If you think ending up with a few extra screws is bad, try ending up with three extra system boards. :D
