Long story short, it's been at the repair shop 3 times! First time to check my earphone socket in which the plastic support broke. It's part of a small daughterboard with the mic port and 2 USB ports. They took it out but I needed the USB ports. So second time round they put the ports back in, but then some keyboard keys were not working! So third time (which was the quicker) took it back to have the keys sorted. So all is good now.
Over the next few days I shall be doing the art requests that I NEED, repeat, NEEEEED to do!
I'll also be doing MadWorld style commissions for $5 each, plus $1 for any extra character. Here's some samples:
