[If you don’t want to read my hillbilly prose, long story short: I used duct tape to fix a 2003-era Apple Cinema HD 23” display back leg. It doesn’t really work; there’s too much pressure on a small point. I suspect this design was never meant to last more than 5 years. Yes, another quality Apple design. A fix is to order a new leg; they’re still around… I found the part number, and shops that carry it, via Bing. -Wade]
Our big ol’ computer (one of those Apple Cinema Hi-Definition things) busted. Looks like Steve-o put screws in plastic which was never meant to take screws… and only one side no less… over 6 years the plastic turns into some kind of cheese, or some dang thing.
We tried super-gluin’ it. Didn’t take. We tried puttin’ the fancy Christmas placemats under the legs, to stop the slip ‘n’ slide action that broke the thing in the first dang place, plus extra glue. Didn’t take. Well, worked for a while, but down at Wal-Mart they’ve got the wreaths out already, so we’ll be needin’ them placemats soon, plus it fell (and can’t get up!) again.
Time to try something else.
Now I can give the missus back her holiday finery.
