Yeah, I stopped when they became computerized nonsense. Give me a nice straight six like in my Ford Falcon I used to have. Heaps of space to work on them and you knew where everything went and what it did.
I learned by watching my father. He was a Jack-of-all-Trades, I learnt how to weld. He used to build boat and box trailers during the weekends and sell to make extra cash. Also learnt how to drive a bulldozer. He could drive anything. Got his "C" class license simply by backing a high semi out of a narrow lane beside the police station into the main street! Pretty simple test back then!
I'm pretty savvy when it comes to stuff. Use to manage the IT for the advertising company that I worked for. Worked on Macs and PC's, software installations, that sort of stuff. Won't touch Microsoft Windows anymore though. Only work with Mac's or Linux machines.
Most of my time these days is spent graphic designing and coding websites.
