    I broke my computer screen tonight. But it made a really pretty flower shape.

    How in the world did you do that?
    Make a little quilt commemorating the flower, LOL!
    Losing one's computing abilities is like losing a best friend!! I'm so sorry for you.

    I accidently closed the lid, with my ear phones inside. You have the same idea I had. I can do an applique of the flower, and call it busted screen!!!

    It could be worse.

    DGD busted her laptop screen. Her dad plugged the laptop to a stand alone monitor and it works great. Not so portable anymore but saved her a bundle getting it fixed or a new laptop. The next one she has to buy herself so she is happy with the set up. I have one I'm giving her when school starts again.

    Did you throw something at it? I've often felt like doing that, but never have.

    Ouch!! My son replaced the glass screen of his wife's laptop for about $100 -- he found it online. Said it was real easy.
