I am not a 'techie' and I am scared of working with hardware. It is one of my many weak points. I had a bad experience 25 years ago when I took apart my external modem and then had trouble getting it back together again.
I can readily poke fun at myself. Even though I have been a computer professional for almost 40 years, there is so much I do not know.
I am glad you do not agree with everything I post. It shows you have an independent mind.
I admire your hardware work and thank you for the great advice.
