Tech - Can't say no...

I think I need help. I have repaired (or attempted to) 6 computers for friends in the last month. Here's the score:

- Dell PC: Very dirty, cleaned. Windows corrupted, reinstalled, fixed.
- Dell Laptop: Screen backlighting died, cannot fix.
- Kapok Laptop: Did not have proper power supply, crappy German laptop, gave up.
- Dell Laptop: BIOS munged, reflashed, screen going bad. Loaded Slackware so it may die with dignity.
- Dell PC: Very dirty, cleaned. Windows corrupted, reinstalled, fixed. Memory upgraded.
- Dell PC: Very dirty, cleaned. Boot sector virus. Windows corrupted, reinstalled, fixed. Memory upgraded.

And then there's a monitor I am trying to get to geckoman down in VA Beach.

The sick thing is, I like fiddling with and repairing computers. I am sure if I had to do it daily, or under a time constraint, I'd hate it, but it's actually soothing to work on something and get it running again, or at least to the point I can go, "No way man, hosed."
