Spilt a large glass of milk over my Macbook Pro then managed to strip a Torx screw. Harddrive is dead, but the system booted once before that happened so all is not lost. Full post when new HD arrives and (fingers crossed) I get it to boot again. Goodbye Applecare :(
Thank God for The Internet, the iPhone, ifixit.com, and the tiny Phillips-head I found in the tool box.
