Well, the good news is that I spoke to a Fry's supervisor, and convinced him that the job needs to be done right.  He even understands that I'm not necessarily looking for an easy solution: I told him "I know a part is going bad - I gave it to you so you could tell me which part I need to replace!"

The bad news is that in order to make sure it's going to be done right, the supervisor is going to assign it to either his best tech or himself -- which means I have to wait for one of those guys to be available.  His words: "If I have to do it myself, I'm off on Thursday, and I'll do it then."

So it's back to the waiting game.  He begged me to give him until Saturday.  I'll call again then.

I'm sorry that it's going to take that long... Does that mean that you will have the time to wipe my Laptop clean and reinstall XP? I'd really like to have a puter too...

at this point i would try to parlay your advantage and just get a brand-spanking new laptop on the cheap, after all the trouble they've given you.

oh, one other thing - the shades are touring from jan 7-14, i think, in LA. late notice, i know, but if you want to get a full list of their appearances you should contact Melay Araya, one of the tour managers, at <melay.araya@yale.edu>.

As much as I like the idea, my budget won't allow for the laptop thing for another year or so, at which point it'll be a business expense and therefore probably not on the cheap side. I like your thinking, though! =)
