Shoertly after returning from this POS convention, I dumped about a quart of diet coke all over my desk while talking on the phone, and destroyed my laptop, for which I just bought a new battery. It's had time to dry out and it won't power up. The docking station does not even recognize that it's there.
If I can't get it working by Thursday, I'll sell the leftover pieces on Ebay - along with all of the leftover supplies for my Canon BJC-3000 that failed three days ago while trying to print covers for Huzzah #49.
I'm looking forward to going back to work. It's a lot better than my days off seem to be.
