      Not a computer, no. I took apart an old clock once to fix it… I had to get a new one. đŸ¤·

      Sure! I’ve even put computers back together after taking them apart. That bit is much harder.

      My main work machine (which I am using right now) is one I built myself when I was 22. It was really fun, but kinda scary. It took a day and I wasn’t sure if any of it would work until I finally got to plug it in and turn it on.

      Oh yes đŸ™‚ many computers many times. I think the first one was actually one of the computers in the PC classrooms at school. Thankfully I put it back together and it worked :). (My teacher was not happy with me at all).

      But you know, always there are some screws that remain at the end … but as long is it works, I think they are unnecessary.

      I have broken couple of them trying to fix them.
      Also I have opened a digital camera, a TV, speakers, and other electronics.
