I dropped my laptop down the stairs today. Stupid, I know but believe me, it was in no way intentional.
It just slipped out of my hand as I turned towards the top step ready to go down. It was one of those awful slow-motion moments as I watched every bounce and turn until it hit the bottom, crashed into the shelves and ended up on the doormat.
As you can see from the photo (click it to see a bigger one), the screen didn't survive its first foray into extreme sports. The omission of a parachute might have something to do with that.
Thankfully, the screen is the only thing that died (oh, and a tiny piece of insignificant black plastic) so I've connected it up to old monitorsaurus who was waiting in the wings. Laptop screen shop here we come. (Bye bye bank balance!)
