That's about all I have to say about last night, except that I didn't do anything I shouldn't.
Today I've been playing with the laptop - mostly trying to recover the data from the hard drive, which seems to be OK. The problem is that I'm having to move around older backups on my desktop to make room for the new image. There just ain't enough disk space. So I'm waiting for a move of an older image from one drive to another to complete. Sloowwly.
Otherwise, I've been trying to disassemble the laptop, to see if there's a connector or two loose, which is what this is acting like. The problem being that I can't seem to manage it. Even with all the screws taken out, it still seems to be holding together pretty strongly, so I'm missing a screw or latch somewhere...
I'm taking a break from that part, and about to start paying bills, because I'm not going to allow myself to buy anything new until all outstanding bills have been taken care of.
