My laptop has a line. No, not from a play or a poem. :P Just suddenly last week, out of no where, a one pixel-width, yellow, vertical line appeared on the left side of my laptop’s screen. I was baffled at first, but I knew it couldn’t be a dead pixel or anything related to my graphics card. So I googled it and immediately (no joke) found this:
We found that a small number of 17″ LCD displays shipped with Dell Inspiron 9200, 9300 and Dell XPS Gen 2 notebooks may develop a one-pixel wide vertical line may develop across the LCD screen over time…All of these shipped between December 2004 and December 2006.
It was kind of shocking to find an answer so quickly and even more so about how exact the answer was. My laptop is, specifically, an Inspiron 9300 that was shipped in June 2005. Maybe I’m just not used to getting an answer right away when it comes to computers (or maybe Dell in particular, heh). But the blog also says that you can ship it back and they’ll fix it for free, so I’ll have to do that. :P
Also I heart ASO for their ever quick updates to WordPress. All I have to do is browse to Fantastico from my control panel and with two clicks my WP installation is updated to the latest version! So woot. :)
I have a new job!
I worked hard today at my new job at Kohls setting out a ton of holiday items in the housewares department. I almost wanted to buy several dish sets, they were so pretty! There are great big mugs for cocoa or coffee, large decorated bowls for candies and cookies, and so much more! All matching too!
Everything at Kohl’s seems to be on sale right now as well. Lots of things for up to 50% off, at least in the housewares. That includes appliances and cook/bakeware too! Makes me want to redo my kitchen. :P So I highly suggest you find the nearest store and shop all those good deals! Kohl’s is awesome. :)
