The laptop that I dedicated to my music pursuits, a macbook pro, seems to have taken an arrow in the knee. The backlight tends not to switch on, and it's definitely booted up, as I can hear the volume control still working.
Annoying. Apart from a major annoyance of having to do homework on linux - which I have very little patience for its foibles - I also use that machine for my digital painting pursuits. Which again, the damned wacom tablet does not work on linux even after my ministrations.
Bwa, I say. Bwa.
