    Over the years, the problem I've run into for repairing something is not being able to find a replacement part that is needed. Some plumbing repairs can be fixed with "universal" parts, which is a great benefit. Your service of providing the "how-to" fix something is definitely helpful toward reducing consumer waste.

    The challenge to fix rather than replace anything is worthwhile. My brother described the street activity in India to be full of life and movement everyday. People sweeping, delivering food and fixing things. Simple things, like flip flops. I always remembered that. It might be easier to start with flip-flops, then advance to computers.

    Especially when it comes to computers, it can often be cheaper to fix an old one than buy a new one unless the old one is 7+ years old.
