Power Equals Work Over Time

Notice anything missing?

Our friends at Antec have had my PSU for over a week now. It started making a very high-pitched squeal when running, which confirms that the switching circuits (I think) started to go. So I sent it back for an RMA on Friday, and it arrived at Antec's door on Monday morning.

A replacement unit has finally shipped from California last night... but that means it won't be at my doorstep until Wednesday at best. And since my computer lacks any means to provide power to its wonderous self, I'm left with this suck-ass laptop with an ATI card that displays whatever resolution it damn well feels like, forget it if it's an awful 1024x768 on an LCD monitor that has a native resolution of 1280x1024.

Soo... all work that I need to do on my latest "projects" have slowed to a crawl. Crap.
