Yet another reminder that I need a new laptop. This thing has busted hinges (so it's wholly nonportable, a problem that the nonclosing DVD drive just exacerbates) and runs obscenely slowly.
The problem, of course, is that it's going to be a looooooooooooooooong time before I have the spare cash to get a new laptop.
It's not critical just yet -- I can still write and check e-mail and surf the web and listen to music on this thing, and that's all I critically need it for. But it still sucks.
