Well, I'll stick it back in the bag of rice and hope it's just an errant water droplet, and not some catastrophic failure. Insurance will cover a new one for $40, but that's $40 I don't have at the moment. As a friend of mine put it, I got phwned.

It's been a pain, but it's like a big series of puzzles, and I always feel very happy when I figure something out and get it
I'm starting to consider cross-posting my blog entries from my personal site/deviantart/facebook just so there's at least some activity on the blogs... maybe it'll get others to post too. I just feel sorta like an attention whore doing it since it's so silent, so that's why I haven't, I guess.
