I've seen the needle and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie's like a settin' sun.

Good song...

yes it could have been.

I called Dell Tech support just to see if, by any chance, my warranty covered the damage. Nope :(

I thought someone got Neil Young twisted up...

The Needle and the Damage Done...

Cheers!

p.s. That's why I *hate* candles. Flashlights are much safer and brighter.
