I'm no a stranger to technology, I got into PC hardware from when I was about 15-16 years old, my father wanted a cd-rom and sound card fitted into a Olivetti 486 DX2 PC.
Unfortunately what I thought I could do, I could not, I put the sound card in and the cd-rom drive in but the PC would not boot. I then proceeded to take everything out and put it back to the way it was before....or so I thought, once again the PC would not boot. My father was charged £99 because I had put the IDE cable in the wrong way around. From that day on I learned as much as I could about PC's, how they worked, what the hardware was and how it all went together.
Since then I have picked up knowledge on other electronics such as Mobile (Cell) Phones, Original Xbox, Xbox 360, PS1, PS2 and PS3. Sometimes they are very tedious but can also be fun.
