This is why I haven't posted lately.
So, I tripped over my laptop cord and it fell on the ground and you can see what happened to the screen--it cracked.
I'm a bit upset about it.
I've gotten over my grieving period and I'm starting to figure out what to do to solve the problem. Fortunately, it looks like replacing the LCD screen itself is fairly easy, although getting the screen shipped to Egypt may be a bit tricky. For right now I'm going to hook my laptop up to a keyboard and monitor. There's just one problem:
One the right, you see the video output. It's called Mini-VGA, and nobody but Apple supports it. Sure, it's cute and tiny and takes up a lot less space than a normal VGA plug. But it means that until I get the adaptor from an Apple Store, I still can't use my computer.
So, uh, stay tuned on that one. Not sure if I can find one of those in Cairo.
Other than that, I'm doing fine. I quit my diet. Basically, my rule is this: when my computer gets destroyed, I get to eat whatever the heck I want if it makes me feel better. I got chocolate, hotdogs, bread, pickles, and potato chips and they did help me calm down a bit. Strange comfort food, I know.
But don't worry, I won't break my computer ever time I want to quit my diet; I'll just quit my diet. Really. I have nothing to prove.
From now on I'm going to be a lot more protective of my computers. Promise.
UPDATE: So I called a local Apple Store, and they said that a Mini-VGA cable will cost me 600LE, or around $120. Another place said they will only charge 390LE, or around $75. Either way, this is a lot of money to pay for a tiny retarded cable that costs
