    If your desktop or laptop computer went on the fritz, would you know how to diagnose and fix it yourself? Do you know how to change cards/memory and other peripherals? Do you need help installing software? Can you update your own hard drive and install a fresh operating system? Where do you stand?

    I have never taken a computer in for maintenance, I learned how to maintain this shit myself for over 15 year now or since I started with these confounded things.

    I've built three or four in a row. I still get frustrated when shit goes wrong sometimes, but I'm pretty capable.

    I pay for my lawn work and to have my truck cleaned.

    Not my PC.
