I was suffering from a bent / warped display lid. I seeked relief on the internet, but all I could find were suggestions to RMA the device, or just "let go".
I wouldn't want to "let go" - and this bent display was annoying me so much, that I started experimenting a bit until I have come up with a solution that just works.
Put the display lid in the oven, around 2-3 minutes at 180 degrees celsius. After I took it out, it had already straightened itself in the oven. Please note, that if you do so, you do it at your own risk and maybe try it with 1 minute (or less first) ... these things are very fragile! A second too long might ruin the lid.
Before, it looked like this:
So, it was time for the oven:
After just 2-3 minutes, the result was quite impressive:
The forum's rules did mention something about this:
IF needed, you may add one or more photographs to your post. In that case you must also place a warning in the Subject: line!
PLEASE note that you may have multiple thumbnails (ideally linking to full-sized images) as long as their sum does NOT exceed the 50KB limit.
It would also be greatly appreciated if you can keep the pixel dimensions to something around 800x600.
Any picture(s) exceeding this 50KB limit may be changed to link(s) by an Administrator/Moderator (without warning).

This has got to be the silliest life hack I ever heard (and I don't need it right now, thankfully) -- but I'm reasonably amused and glad to see it worked!
Good for you!
I'm one of the cell phone users with limited data plan - I recently started making enough money to increase from 3GB to 5GB* per months, but I still prefer that images do not auto-load in this forum. Thanks.
