Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I generally check my laptop before running to work. I have it on or next to my couch usually and just hit a few sites, check my work email etc in the morning. Unfortunately, as I got up to actually leave for work, it happened.
The laptop had fallen off the arm of the couch and it was immediately obvious the LCD screen was damaged. I tried the futile quick reboot (but haven't yet tried plugging it into a separate display to verify that the video card is fine) and there's a significant amount of bleeding in the lower right and corruption on the right side. Of course, its about six months out of warranty unless I remembered to get the accident coverage, which I don't think I did.
A replacement screen from HP looks like it runs around $450 before shipping but presumably that comes with installation. I can find an identical screen for $125 but I'd have to install it myself unless I found someplace local that would do it for me.
