So I sent my MacBook in for repairs. The fn key seems to have come right off, which is unfortunately not only a useful key, but perhaps the most heavily-trafficked key on the entire board (being a pre-requisite of such auspicious keys such as Page-Up, and Home). Luckily, the guy at the store thinks it may be ready tomorrow -- assuming they can diagnose the missing key and quickly order a replacement keyboard. I forgot to mention the wonky trackpad issue -- perhaps a service ticket for another day.

To compound issues, however, my brother's monitor has gone fuzzy. It is under warranty for several more days (read: four more days), and we took it in last week. Futureshop, of course, sent the monitor (a near three-year-old 19-inch) away for repair. Me being the kind, considerate and modest person I am offered my brother my own monitor in exchange. "After all, I mainly use the laptop!"

So hopefully I am only computerless for only a single day...

...Although technically I am not computerless, as I still have my desktop, my server, and the old PII dell I am setting up as an arcade/myth box...

So hopefully I am only displayless for only a single day...
