A fixer inspired by a gearhead father and a love of old things. Clocks and bicycles were early interests. I reached the next level in my tinkering after asking my father if he knew of a way to determine in advance whether clockwise or counterclockwise turns would loosen a given screw. I became more efficient upon learning that there is a way.

Married to Mac®, for better, for worse or for world-wide safety-related recall. Not a buyer of extended warranties, I'm averse to betting when the other party knows the odds and I don't. The amount of money I don't spend on extended warranties will, in the long run, be greater than what I spend on repairs, as long as Apple® and other manufacturers have good underwriters on staff.
