Quick repair question. #Dell Show more
When I bought my Dell XPS 13 I got the one year on-site warranty. I dropped it a couple of months ago and a screw came loose. I can't put it back in as it's threaded.

Glad I saw this about Ubuntu 17.10 not being awesome for Lenovo laptops, given my backup machine has been promoting to upgrade from 17.04 recently! https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/12/21/ubuntu_lenovo_bios/
Most tooters I see here are 'puter tutors who tutor 'puters to 'pute. If you tutor 'puters to 'pute, that's great, but is tutoring 'puters to 'pute going to be all that you toot?
White men really can't comment on shared docs, can they?
