I was giving another old crappy notebook, this time with a suspect hard-drive; and sure enough it was crappy.
But then in a moment of crazed enthusiasm I ripped out the screen from
the new old crappy machine and put it in my not so crappy machine. I
wish I took photos now, but at the time I did not think it would work -
but it did!
So now I am a hardware guru!
Now more single-click interfaces for me; from now on I will be operating computers with a screwdriver
Hmmmm, maybe that is how the screen got cracked in the first place.
