* Repairs back in style

Personal Stuff/Random News
The NY Times says that repairing stuff rather than throwing it out is coming back into style:

Gadget-fixing is adapting to the modern era. Neighborhood repair shops are all but gone, and along with them the repairmen who could offer casual advice, even when that advice was whether it was worth repairing the device. But Web sites can help users find and share solutions that can save a device from the landfill. If the job is too tricky, a number of Internet-based firms offer highly specialized repairs via overnight mail.
If you have the mind for it, a lot of things can be repaired.
