off to fix my least favourite computer tomorrow.
It was obviously designed with the expectation that it would never last long enough to need dismantling and the case design is cheap and awful.
Annoyingly, the Windows Vista - installed half a decade ago - is running uncharacteristically well instead of just slowing down and giving up the ghost and yielding an excuse to get a replacement computer.
The CD drive is playing up. This means 2 minutes dismantling, 5 minutes fixing the problem, then half-an-hour to put the ruddy thing back together again.
