So, since unemployment ran out, I’ve been fixing computers to try to make ends meet. It’s funny how much fixing computer is simultaneously easier and harder than it was eight years ago.
Easier, because current operating systems tell you much more about the system configuration and installed applications, and the built-in tools actually work. Harder, because some errors and issues show NO SIGNS in logs or diagnostics.
And I’ve worked on three different computers over the past week. Each has had a strange combination of issues.
