well, FUCK!

The CD/DVD tray on my laptop just came off its track -- well, one of its tracks, the other one's just fine -- and I can't close it. Which means I can't play DVDs on the laptop or do screengrabs (which is something I provide in some of my Farscape scripts).

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.
