Mass Diagnosis, Mass repair

Occasionally Tri-Edge will be handed large workloads in one go, dozens of computers requiring diagnosis and repair. This weeks load consisted of many hard drive replacements and a few motherboard replacements. The motherboard replacements were courtesy of burn damage caused by dust blockage on the heat sinks.

The units that cannot be efficiently repaired are recycled.


Computer repair/networking. Been at it since I was a 7 year old helpin dad at Ohio Bell/Ameritec/SBC/Ameritec. All I can remember is his rhino skin hands, a gel knife, and miles of underground, stupid thick black cable that opened up into a bajillion tiny wires, shoved into small to large junction boxes. Like a box of fireworks just exploded. Started on the old white desktop IBMs with the 5 inch floppy and the 1/4th drive, playing hugo who dunnit, hugo and the haunted house of horrors, olympics, and where in the world is carmen sandiago. oh! and a dinosaur game of some sort.
