Quick blurb with more to come later:
I spend most of my days working at iFixit. I have worked here about 3 1/2 years now, my oh my how time flies. I have been married to my wonderful wife Kayla for over 3 years. She graduated from USF with a bachelors in some sort of mathematics, but I am still in school. Currently, I attend Cuesta College and I am majoring in Business Administration. Also, I am going to Bible College to get a bachelors in Biblical Studies. My wife and I lead the Jr. High Youth Group at our church Calvary Chapel Shoreline.
Skeet shooting, paintballing, hiking/backpacking, fishing, hunting, cars, 4x4ing, and of course video games. In addition, I love tinkering, fixing, and customizing, but I have little time for such endeavors.
Here, I am shooting my friends Remington 700 in .308 bolt action, but I prefer my a Marlin XL7 in .270.
You can see my Jeep in the back ground. It's an '89 Cherokee with the 4.0 liter straight six engine. I added Borla headers and exhaust along with a K&N intake. I put on a 3.5" Rubicon Express lift kit and removed the front sway bars. The lift kit and a little fender trimming allowed my to run 32" mud tires. The Jeep was a capable little vehicle in sand, mud, and on rocks, but the suspension was a little stiff to have a lot of fun in the sand. One of my favorite mods I performed on my Jeep was to remove the rear wiper blade. This allowed windshield wiper fluid to be sprayed out the back of my Jeep with an effective distance of about 15 feet. This was a great surprise for those pesky tailgaters and to an unsuspecting friend. However, through an unfortunate series of events I had to get rid of my Jeep. Funny how priorities change when you get married, but someday I will get another.
On July 18th, 2012 my wife and I had a new addition to our family:

Can I replace an engine starter cord?The starter cord on my lawn mower broke. Is there a way to fix the cord myself, or do I have to get a new lawn mower, or...
Answer to "Screen Display is Shaky and Duplicated"Hi Kalina, That looks like a bad display assembly. I recommend requesting a warranty replacement form whoever you bought it from.
Answer to "PC2-5300 2GB RAM Chips Compatible W My iMac 24?"Yes, the PC2-5300 RAM will work great in your iMac.
Answer to "cloning new hard drive"We here at iFixit usually use SuperDuper.
Answer to "How many harddrives can you fit in a MacBook Pro 13''?"To my knowledge you can only have one hard drive in your laptop.
Answer to "A1237 Logic Board Compatibility to A1304"Hi David, Unfortunately, the logic boards are not cross-compatible as far as I know.
Answer to "Switching Ports with other iPod"The parts will swap over just fine. I recommend taking a look at our repair guides to see the difficulty of swapping the parts.
Answer to "Skype prevent from sleeping with open lid (automatic sleep settings)"Will the computer sleep if you quit Skype?
Answer to "CDMA vs GSM Dock connector"Unfortunately, the dock connectors are different between the GSM and CDMA versions of the iPhone 4. If you ordered from iFixit, then you can email me your order number and I can change it for you as long as it has not been shipped out. Email address: Matt(at)iFixit(dot)com
Answer to "Headphone Jack/Hold relacement gone wrong: Hold will not unstick."Sounds like the problem is with the headphone jack cable and not the logic board. In my experience the cable usually goes bad or gets a pinch or a short before the logic board goes bad.
Answer to "small piece broke off while cleaning from water damage..."I believe those are capacitors, but I am not sure on the functionality of each. Someone who knows more about EE could probably give a better than I, but I would try and turn it on and hope it works.
