A great thought for our times.

From iFixit, "the free repair manual that you can edit" (click to image to go there or to see the full-size image).

Like the man says, repairing what you have is better than the alternatvies, especially better than buying newly manufactured crap. I'm pleased to say that just I fixed a frakked-up toilet, among other household repairs - owning a home is a constant parade of repairs - and do something every week to keep my vehicle collection alive (Saab electronics and cooling system work this week). What have you done lately to live up to the Self-Repair Manifesto?

Thanks to jeanineers for the tip!

I fixed my laptop (yay, the refurb drive appeared yesterday), Jbird is replacing a leaky trap in a downstairs sink, I'm eying a flash part for my camera, and we gave away two "to be trashed" fridges last week.
