clickity clickity clickity when the keyboard as I was typing some code on my laptop. As I shifted my ass to get more comfortable on my lumpy futon, the laptop closed and went into "hibernation" mode; which, on my laptop, means a reboot is in order. Damn, I lost the code I was working on.

After going through the above mentioned scenario for the 15th or 16th time, I decided to fix the problem.

Tilting the screen back farther when I'm coding won't help because the hinge is so weak that the screen will flop back like a wet noodle. Life is a balancing act and my laptop needs some equilibrium. If only there were some magical mythical material that would solve my problem.

It has a light side, it has a dark side, and it binds the universe together: DUCT-TAPE.
A couple strips placed just so.....and BOOYAH!, the damn hinge stays at the perfect angle.

A Jedi may trust the force, but I prefer duct-tape. See you next time.

Prove you are human by solving a math problem! I'm sorry, but due to an increase of blog spam, I've had to implement a CAPTCHA.
