Hell no! I cut out that crap years ago.

First I was open to doing computer service (free or pay) for pretty much anyone.
Then I limited it to just acquaintances, friends, and family.
Then it was friends and family.
Then it was close friends and family.
Then it was just extended family.
Then it was just immediate family, and that's not looking so good these days.

Lack of time, lack of interest, desire to avoid frustration...

Yeah, me too. But I felt like documenting the extended repair kit because often enough I'm buying some nifty tool... that it turns out I don't need, because I won't likely need it or already have one. The typical guy thing. I figure, if I have written down somewhere what I have, then I can figure out what I really do need, and avoid temptation when I don't.
