Computer Bug

I was examining the Li-Ion Battery for the Compaq Presario 1610 laptop I write on. The battery is really ancient, and only holds about a minute's worth of charge. On one hand, I could probably save a story draft if the power went out; but on the other hand, it limits where I can work on stories. I'm going to see if I can dig up a replacement somehow.

Anyway, when I slid the battery out, there was a parchment thin web and an old dried up brown spider in the battery bay! Who knows how long I've been carting around a dead spider in my laptop?

I only wonder if it was a momma spider and if there's an egg sack underneath the keyboard.
