I'm not a 'farm boy' as such, not literally, but was brought up in rural areas or small villages, and well, did spend a lot of time on farms I suppose. So not a 'town or city-boy' by upbringing. I do think that makes a difference to the expectations you grow up with. You are by nature more self-sufficient, more of a born improviser, because you have to be!x9200 wrote:I don't know if this is the farm boy thing. I have the same. If I had time I would buy an old motorbike or a car and restore it just for a pleasure of doing it and the end result. Also, I kind of feel, doing this kind of job is a great value in personal development even at my age. This is like getting to the root of the problems, learning the very basic, Lego blocks, what enables people to do many different things.
I constantly struggle with the computers to chose between the easy way to do some tasks or to do them on the rudimentary level. Should I just click a check box and have it done for me or edit the config file by myself. If I do the click I will save some time but lose the knowledge how the things are really handled. Am I the only one having this sort of dilemmas?
