Theyre a pain to work on, with innumerable screws, breakable plastic bits and fragility.
Taking them apart, you have to be careful and organized, making sure nothing is lost, broken or done out of order.. Putting them back together, its the same, but double checking that youre not missing anything. And dont sneeze.
Mac laptops are worse, much worse, with non-standard fasteners, proprietary parts and no public service manuals. Apple doesnt want The Unwashed Masses messing with their products.
Oh yeah, and I have a Mac laptop I need to work on. O_0

I think that outlook started as a kid, we didnt have birthday parties. Eventually, what with my travels, it got to the point where holidays passed unnoticed, eventually becoming more of an annoyance than a celebration.
I think many folk are puzzled at my disregard for holiday conventions.
Apart from being aware that most places will be closed, theyre just another day to me really.
Maybe if I have a family, I might do traditions, but eh.
The New York Fox 5 weather woman took the morning weather job @ the SF CBS station here. It's her first Christmas away from the East Coast.
She looked so homesick when her co-workers brought up that fact, saying she had called her mom who replied "You'll be aight".
Christmas here out West is different, especially when you dont have anyone close around. I think the wide open spaces add to it.
Of course, we arent dealing with bad weather, although frankly - I like snow in winter.
Yeah, one could go into the mountains, but it taint the same.
Making your lifestyle secure for the future and setting up ways to be productive in the coming year have taken most of your attention the past few months. Most Virgos will be pleased with the progress and wait for the new year with the anticipation of an even better year to follow. A renewed sense of independence has increased your level of self-confidence.
That's how Im feelin'.
