    Man, I’m jealous of London right now.  I really need this in Atlanta.

    Oh noes…  Does this mean no more dumpster diving for TVs/monitors that just need a couple new capacitors?

      I used to work with a woman whose husband could fix anything.  We’d all just bring our broken stuff to work for her to take home to her husband.  He’d fix it and sell it, give it away or donate it to a charity store.  Everyone was happy, except perhaps Big Microwave.

        I’ll be moving to America next month, I think one of the things I’ll miss most about living in China will be the few people scattered around who can do that. One guy near my home fixed my oven, microwave, electric bike and anything else electrical that I brought him. He charges less than a dollar each time, and usually explains what went wrong so I know what to do next time.
