Things I love about fixing computers

  • When you put down a screwdriver it disappears
  • When you drop a screw it disappears
  • Holding tiny thumb screws between two fingers that are basically too short and fat for the purpose
  • Leads that only work when plugged in one way but can be plugged in in two ways
  • Cases that don’t fit back together properly
  • “Found New Hardware”
  • Leads that are too short
  • Leads that are too short because you bound them all up neatly with cable ties
  • Leads that are too long
  • The feeling of satisfaction you get as you ~~finish the job~~ ~~finally find the screwdriver~~ give up on the whole damned thing and have a cigarette instead
I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
