I vowed never ever to take my computers to a computer repair store again and so I learned computer hardware inside and out. It wasn't funny then but it's sure funny now; I actually just found that receipt the other day while moving. It still makes me cringe! I chipped the core on my Duron processor and fried the motherboard on my Athlon system with static. I am now a PC master, can build and repair anything under the sun, and own a Mac. Go figure :p

Yeah, that is how I started also and turned into a computer tech for a living but run Macs as my main machines also!
