Recht op reparatie



Hey there! My name's Jessica, and welcome to my Virtual Mess Lab!

I love to perform/read teardowns, and taught myself my own approach to fixing devices. I would love to help repair cars, but I don't think my methods are street-legal/safe...Then again, I've seen duct-taped bumpers…

I’m a Windows/Android person through and through, but I also support Mac OS/iOS, since it offers some features the former doesn’t have. For example, pairing USB drives as RAID? Only Macs can pretty much do it, and Windows? Well, that’s out of the question. I would use something other than an iPod for music, but unfortunately Apple seems to have dominated that category well, with reliable devices that can still run despite being at least 14 years old, with a spindle drive instead of flash memory.

My first laptop I ever owned was an Acer Aspire AO722P netbook, running Windows 7 Home Premium. I loved that little thing, even though the CPU was garbage (1.0 on Windows Experience Index, for those who remember that), since it could do things that seemed impossible. It never gave me a BSOD, never froze up or crashed, and ran pretty damn hot. The fan was designed to take in air from underneath the keyboard, which was, of course blocked by the backplate of the keyboard. And thanks to the laws of thermodynamics, hot air rises, which meant that it was literally cooling itself using hot air. (It used an AMD C-60 with integrated Radeon HD 6290 GPU. The graphics were better than the entire machine itself.)

I’m also developing a little OS using batch scripting on Windows. I know, it’s not really a programming language, but hey, it’s the only one I know personally. When I started learning Arduino, I started forgetting it, and soon I realized I needed to re-memorize it before I forgot what ‘echo’ does. You can download v1 here. (See below if you would like to help develop v2)

Feel free to edit the code, I don’t care what you do. Just make sure to note that it was originally mine.

Feel free to ask me anything, although I can’t guarantee it’ll be answered, since I’m still learning myself! But before you ask, try restarting! Seriously, it could potentially solve your problem on your own! I can be contacted through here, or through my email: Feel free to email me about any tech problems, no matter how stupid they are!

Happy fixing,

Jessica P. Fawkes
