kshandra: figurine of a teddybear seated at an office desk, looking at a computer (ComputerBear)
On the one hand, my brother was able to take apart my laptop, blow about 5lbs. of playa dust out of it (seriously, we used 2/3 of a can of compressed air), put it back together again, and get it to run.

On the other hand, I went to get in my car afterward, and discovered I'd gotten a parking ticket (street parking tends to be challenging in [personal profile] murphymom's neighborhood, so I pulled into the driveway behind her and got tagged for obstructing the sidewalk).

On the gripping hand, a $55 ticket is almost certainly less than it would have cost me to take the computer to a shop for diagnosis and repair.

On the octopus half (tm [livejournal.com profile] janetmiles), the list of other places I could use that $55 is not short.

Ugh -- I am sorry that parking IN the driveway got you a ticket! :/

However, massive points for the Niven/Pournelle and cephalopod references!! <3
