Just Try It! It Will Have Been Simple Afterwards.

Again and again I encounter technical problems (software bugs, hardware defects) that seem to be nearly impossible to fix without having had a proper education in the respective field. The simple, and correct, way to getting rid of these types of problems surely is to declare them not a problem. Buy a new device, convince yourself that you don't want the feature anyway, make somebody else solve your problem and blame them if it isn't perfect or breaks again.

But in those cases where I do find the motivation to try and repair something myself, it is often easier than expected and always so in hindsight. If you have repaired something yourself before that you initially considered to be a problem that is above your capabilities, I congratulate you on this eminently gratifying feeling that more often than not seems to come with this experience. If you haven't, this sentence doesn't address you.
