Child is disassembling my old laptop. I have no idea how to express my glee at the sight of an eleven year old with a screwdriver patiently unscrewing and removing screws from the bottom of the case.

My glee is a healthy glee of gleefulness. Also, the battery seems to be not working, if the yellow-green flickering is anything to go by, so I figured an opportunity to stare in ravenous awe at the motherboard (and make sure all looks copasetic) would not be amiss, since there are two batteries and one of them isn't that old.

Ah. Time to check his work before removal. So. Exciting.

Ahhh... eleven. A friend of mine had an eleventh birfday party for her son and called it a destructo party -- she went around for a month collecting defunct electronics then the day of the party, spread a big tarp over the family room floor, gave them tools and told 'em to have at it. I know they had at least one laptop and maybe a desktop too, and a vacuum, a couple of old toaster ovens, etc. Sounded like the perfect birfday party to me.
