Once again, a swingin' time was had by all at this afternoon's Holiday Fixit Clinic at the Albany California Community Center. I didn't get photos of everything we saw but we were busy the whole time. And how often do you get to see Dean Martin with his pants down?

Every Fixit Clinic is kind of like an Improv performance: you never know what the participants are going to show up with. Yesterday Fixit Clinic XCIII (#93) at Hercules Public Library was the day of the vacuum cleaners: we saw three or four of them.

At Fixit Clinic we believe that people's stories -- what the item meant to them when it was working, how it broke, and how they fixed it -- are the best part of holding these events. We've just discovered this page on iFixit.com's site where they've chronicled lots of people's stories about their repairs; read 'em here: https://www.ifixit.com/story
We've got a couple of our own so far (see the Hello Kitty toaster and Vacuum Cleaner posts). Over time, we hope to amass our own collection of stories about what we've seen.
