Alas poor shiny-book

It looks like the backlight on the screen of my netbook has failed. Poo.

It was working over the weekend, but now won't illuminate. Poo.

It's a much loved Eee 901, and I have never seen anything really better: it was light, very portable size, with a very good battery life, yet powerful enough and with a good enough keyboard to do real stuff on. I had it at a meeting some years ago, not long after the iPhone came out, and the iPhone owner at it was jealous. Poo.

I do have a backup - an Eee 900 that was very cheap on Boffer, but it is slower, the keyboard is nowhere near as good, and the battery life is much worse. Poo.
