    i live in new jersey, and they look like pretty standard black ants that you see all the time on the side walk.

    Run F@H(folding at home) on the thing for a few days. I don't think ants like a laptop that is cooking at 50-60c for several days straight.

    Ah, I see Vor has unleashed his army of Perl-bots

    Erm...

    Yes, that is rather disturbing. You don't leave your laptop in odd places, do you? (ie: the floor, outside in the garden).

    I would remove the keyboard and see if there is something inside attracting them... high pressure air should clean whatever it is out.

    I actually think if I picked them up anywhere, it would be work. I bring it to work all the time, and I'm always encountering weird bugs there.
