How maintaining a computer is a lot like gardening

Keeping your home computer in working order is a lot like tending a garden. Now, this sounds like a strange idea, but hear me out. What happens when your indoor garden encounters some kind of trouble? Maybe a particular cultivar is blighted, or maybe your orchids are wilting and you’re not quite sure why. In the worst case scenario, you have to deal with aphids and other pests who chew through your roses and destroy your rhododendrons. In many respects, maintaining your garden is a lot like maintaining your computer. You have to regularly check for bugs and correct problems, adjust your methodology, and carefully keep everything at the perfect temperature.

I have a lot of respect for people with computer knowledge. It’s like magic to me! I got some more information from someone who do Computer Repairs in Pakenham, Melbourne, “You’re right! Repairing computers is a lot like gardening,” Sam laughed as he forgave me for my somewhat strange idea, “I think there are a lot of similarities, and just like you know a lot about gardening, I wouldn’t know the first thing about keeping an indoor garden healthy. When it comes to computers, however, I provide repairs for just about every piece of hardware and software you’ve heard of—or haven’t heard of.”

“There’s a little bit of magic in repairing computers. I worked on a machine recently for a client that kept continually dying at boot. Eventually, I figured out it was a problem with the CMOS battery! I had an inkling that it might have been, but it was the last thing I checked, as I suspected something worse.”

It’s Greek to me, but apparently, my idea didn’t fall entirely upon deaf ears! What are your thoughts on comparing indoor gardening to computer repairs?
