The Road Chose Me Volume 2 OUT NOW!!
The Road Chose Me Volume 2: Three years and 54,000 miles around Africa
Going without my little Dell Mini 9 for a month now has been really frustrating, so I’m pretty eager to get it fixed. Every time I’ve seen a sign for free Wi-Fi I can’t help but feel I’m missing out.
I bought a screen off eBay for all of $20 USD and had my Dad send it down here to me just after I broke it. Customs wanted to hold the package until I came down and paid some taxes, so off to the big city we venture. A lot of government paperwork and back-and-forth and a $4 USD tax later, I have the new screen in my hot little hands.
I don’t exactly know how to pull the laptop apart, so I just un-screw everything I can see, and slowly progress until I’ve got the thing in quite a few pieces. The new screen was an identical copy of the original, and about an hour later I have everything back together and working perfectly.
Can you believe not a a single screw left over?
A huge thanks to my Dad for sending the screen, and Kate and Nick for trying hard to get one here a few weeks back, that missed the plane by one day.
We just dumped over 1000 photos from our three cameras and over the next couple of weeks I’m going to go back through the last month worth of articles and fix them up with complete stories and photos.
I’m also going to throw some links to the updated articles on the front page so it will be easier for you to find them.
Things are about to get a lot better around here.
