I do not need to take apart Absinthe, my mini 10v, to install a touchscreen. I know very well I'm not permitted to play with things that solder, can be set on fire, or require me to melt things.

Even if I am really tempted.

You know, I want to say it's good sense, but it's not. It's aesthetics. Having to strip the bezel off the screen would bother me. There has got to be a more efficient way to pull this off.

Not that I'm thinking about it.

Today got my 2G RAM update for Absinthe and during installation, I totally did not try to figure out how I could create room in the case for this or anything. I don't need a netbook touchscreen. I am not an engineer. I just lack common sense and like shiny things.

This won't end well. I am going to go stare hard at overpriced shoes now.

The second one doesn't require soldering. :D

Anyone can be an engineer.

(And you don't need to be an engineer to solder.)

Soldering expensive electronics can be intimidating--but it shouldn't be. It does need a good eye, a steady hand, and the right tool for the job. If you've got those, it's pretty hard to break anything. Maybe practice with a kit first if you haven't soldered much before.

I'd suggest you getting another hobby, but after the stock market thing I'm frankly worried about where you can go from here.

To distract you momentarily from your lust for the sexy, sexy touchscreen, I heard on the radio yesterday that Adam's concert here in Seattle is sold out. I was very gleeful for him!

And then What Do You Want From Me was playing at my osteopath's office. It was epic.

Ugh, of course he's coming to Seattle when I'm not in the Pacific NW... I swear this always happens, and is the reason I've been to two concerts in my life.

Touchscreens do sound excellent... the question is, which is more attainable, the touchscreen or the shoes?
