It was a good Saturday night. Our frosh took the 500-point purity test (getting scores from 85 to 98; we need to work on that). My suite had a fun Halloween party, which was good. I dressed up as Princess Vespa's stunt double from Spaceballs. Now I'm trying to figure out who that actor was. IMDB doesn't mention him and I can't find it on Google.
I got exactly one hit on Google today for the string 00k3234, the part number to the controler to for the backlighting in a ThinkPad 600E. This because my screen has been being flakey. It'll flash when you open it up, then go out, then you have to push the button that makes it think the lid is closed, then it'll do the same thing again. If you push in the right place it worked eventually. It seems happier now that I put a shim in it to push on the offending circuit board. I don't want to pay $40 to make a $350 laptop work properly.
