accomplishment: ressurect laptop
Originally we were planning on getting me a newer better smaller laptop; the old laptop had heat problems. But, with the whole new concept of "living within our means", did some digging around on the heat problems with my laptop, and found this:

Woot! I did the surgery last night, and even found a loose screw bouncing around on the motherboard .. put it all back together again, played a DVD (which would normally kill the laptop in about 2 minutes), and its running good!

So, no silly laptop expenditure needed.. I have a portable 8 lb laptop again! Yay is me.

Granted I'm almost out of disk space.. i need to trim down my 20G music collection. I really don't listen to all of it.
