Especially with apple products. Buying parts and getting it fixed by Apple is way too expensive. I replaced my iPod battery for 0.80$, bought the battery on eBay. Same with a friend's iPhone, ordered a battery + tools on eBay for 8$ and fixed it. It's pretty easy and you save a LOT of money. Who else repairs their own stuff?

Two summers ago, I spilled a massive glass of water right onto my MacBook. Apple quoted me $700, which obviously wasn't going to happen, so I went to ebay and bought a new top case (trackpad, keyboard) for $30, and did the repair myself. It's worked fine since then :)

This one time the speakers in my friend's car died, so I hit the dashboard really hard.

Born & raised in Russia without a father, so I kinda had to learn to fix everything myself. From plumbing, to door locks, to alarm clocks :D

I've blown a few tubes and speakers, and then successfully re-tubed, re-biased, and re-coned the amps/speakers.
Mmmm, tubes...

I also do a lot of guitar setups because I'm not paying some schmuck 60 bucks to fuck up my neck.

Wait, are we talking about computers?

I fix my own stuff whenever I can. :3
I also always assemble my own PCs, which I will have to do again soon, I believe. ;-)

I allwase build/fix stuff myself.
I got education for electrician and IT.

Build all my pc's and servers myself, installed X10 in my house (yes i'm lazy).
I used to fix my car as well, with my old mazda.
But now i got one of those newer cars... so i just let the people deal with it that realy know what they are doing.

Only thing i hate fixing, are my dirty-dishes.

Apart from assembling computers, nothing much. Don't know if that counts really... It's just screwing screws and applying thermal paste (which is as hard as putting butter on a bread)

I dropped my phone in the water once. I let it sit in a bowl of dry rice for two weeks and it started working like a charm. Same thing with my iPod too.

I ported one installation of Windows 7 to a different hard drive over the course of like a day and a half, using a Linux liveboot?

A certain laboratory supplies seller constantly tries to rip me off so I make my own deadly strains of e. coli instead. Does that count?

You can have them. They are pretty useless these days. Apparently they need feeding? I dunno.

I fix everything...
My past job involved general contracting. That job requires you to do drywalling, mudding, electrical work, plumbing and everything else under the sun and moon.

I dont understand much about how computers work. I must of missed the episode of The Magic School Bus when they were talking about computers.

I do know my way around an internal combustion engine. From crankshafts to camshafts, to cylinder bore to taper. Its in my blood to fix and ogle at.
