Slept at 5 am today…

….and woke up at 10. The reason for night out was my laptop (IBM Thinkpad) that suffered a broken hinge owing to its age (almost 3 yrs now). Since its out of warranty and I did not want to get exploited by the computer repairmen , I decided to take matter in my own hands…Opened almost every part of the laptop LCD and found the exact part that needed to be replaced. Of course, there was collateral damage (the power cable to the night light snapped while playing around).  I was pleasantly surprised at knowing that every sub part of IBM thinkpad can be ordered online. Eventually placed an order from for as little as $34 ($10 for shipping) and they should be here end of this week.
