It seems I can get a replacement screen for $46 from Amazon and everything else appears to check out OK, so it looks like I dodged that bullet. :carrot:

I hope it ships soon though. To make this work I'm sitting on the floor in the middle of a snakepit of patchcords and power cords, typing blind then craning my neck to see what Ive written on the TV screen 2 feet over my head.

Glad to hear it shouldn't be too expensive. Smile

I remember about five or six years ago when one of my old computers got fried, I had to send it back to the warehouse or wherever to get worked on, but then it overlapped with a major snowstorm and took like three weeks total to get back.  Those were a painful three weeks for the teenaged me. Laughing Spent a lot of time in the computer lab at college.

The new LCD screen was $50 with shipping and changed out with just 4 screws and a bus plug!

I'm good to go again! cheers :carrot: :carrot: :carrot:

Well, lessee. You're writing at a quarter to 5 in the morning, keep this up and sometime you'll fall asleep and it will slip off onto the floor.

What's wrong with your MBP?

Hi Petty.


Dear, dear Leelee; you were never the type to use encryption brackets, were you? Wink

Not trying to be sarcastic at all. Encryption brackets are used to hide information from someone. Who it's being hidden from unfortunately must be figured out by context. For example:

{{{ Leelee would never use encryption brackets because she would never talk behind someone's back. }}}

But of course, you've noticed nothing but the smell of peppermint, did you - and are probably scratching your head about where it came from. Well, it's your only hint that someone has been using an encryption bracket against you.

Of course this can be muddled by context, and if you didn't know the encryption bracket was intended to hide things from you, you may actually see what's in it! Shocked

This is a serious bug, and we have engineers working on it, but for now people like Figgs (who is perfectly capable of figuring out she's not supposed to be able to read something) will exploit it by temporarily not understanding a message is not meant for her, if you follow. That woman has never caught a whiff of peppermint in her life. Mad This is supposed to be a power only shared by an admin and of course our lovely (and omniscient) Queen Tin.

Why do you think I'm mocking you? That was actually a very direct explanation of encryption brackets. I think Eldo put step-by-step directions somewhere, but that might come across as patronizing, as it never addressed the complications of context.

I don't remember who first came up with them, but that is indeed the supposed function of encryption brackets. Though as halfy says their effectiveness sometimes leaves something to be desired.
