I'm a guy who enjoys working with technology in general, and with electronics in particular. I started doing that when I was a kid, and that was *several* decades ago. Doing it that long, I've gotten good at it. :-)
A lot of changes have come about in terms of consumer and other electronics in the past couple of decades. Much of what's changed has made it pretty much more of a hassle than it's worth to work on this stuff, it often being more economical to buy new than to fix existing. So these days I'm more inclined to spend my time getting into the technology for fun, and not bothering with the business so much.
I still have books for sale, lots of excess documentation, and some equipment
Who knows, if you come to me with something interesting enough I might just take it on. Maybe.
I fix things, mostly. Or configure things, connect things, improve things, restore things, and so forth. And web pages, image processing, and other stuff.
This currently includes:
Repairs, upgrades, virus removal, etc.
Wired (premise cabling) and wireless, switches, routers, etc.
Phone wiring and troubleshooting. Do you have phone jacks where you want or need them? Do they all work as they should?
Besides radios and home stereo gear, I have experience with installed sound systems, pro audio gear, and much in the way of musical electronics — organs, synthesizers, guitar amps, effects, etc.
This includes TVs and monitors (flatscreen only unless it's a retro tech restoration) and closed-circuit video.
Let's keep this stuff out of the landfill!
Who needs windows? Linux is a free operating system. Care to explore whether it'll do what you need?
Up until early 1978, I did work at a number of different locations in and around the NYC metro area. Since then, my service area has included much of central PA, mostly south central PA, and nearby portions of MD, DE and WV. Much more detail about locations is here.
If you're reading this then we can do business directly, no need to get an online platform in the middle of things.
Interested in having an antique radio or tv restored properly? This is the sort of "tech" that was around when I started messing with electronics way back when. I've done a few of these recently, too. (A link to some pictures coming soon.)
Note: Please do not take some old radio that's been up in the attic and just plug it in to see if it works, without having at least some of those ancient parts replaced. Doing so can do a lot of damage.

A few thoughts on the subject of online ads.
I've been a Certified Electronics Technician (CET) since 1981. I also hold an FCC General Radiotelephone Operator's License (GROL) and have since 1977.
