RIP a good and faithful servant 

Sometime between 8 and 8.30am BST today my computer screen died. A postmortem has yet to establish a definitive cause of death, but old age is suspected (3.5 in lcd-flatscreen-years being approximately equal to 82 in human ones). Resusitation was attempted by all the usual means (turning off and turning back on again, changing fuses, trying different outlet sockets, attempting to try diferent power leads, etc), but to no avail. Now I know that all things must die at somepoint, but did it really have to be less than two months before I leave the country, and on a day when I really, really needed to get things done? Still, as the man in PC World said, at least monitors aren't as expensive as they used to be.
