So, this morning, I finally got off my fat ass, looked up a few computer repair shops, and started calling around for estimates to get my fan fixed. When I was done, I fired up the laptop to check my email and poke around a few blogs. I can usually run the machine for ten or fifteen minutes before it's in danger of completely overheating.
After about three minutes, the fan kicked on. The little bastard had been listening to my phone calls.
I still think I'm gonna take it in for a checkup, though.
