My apologies lxixe,
I work in a big corporate heavy aircraft repair shop and lately been under the gun to keep up with deliveries. I've been just a bit grouchy...I deal with a LOT of folks there that just seem so... Retirement @55 (9 more years)
You are so right.
That's why I go Dumpster diving. About 80% of my computer technical skills have been self learned this way.
I'm constantly learning and keeping up with newer technology and mostly for free (Less the cost of gas and my time). I just recently repaired a Jornada HP548 and this was my first repair on a PDA and very successful one! About 2 hours invested and $250 bucks richer, Sold it today!
That's why I post my Divin' finds, offering a very cheap alternative to learn for those interested! (One has to set aside there pride though)
