On today’s Tech, No Babel: Troubleshooting Techniques: Avoiding Problems before they happen

A relative of mine (distant, but I’m still claiming him) said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When it comes to troubleshooting, that’s so true.

Have you ever had something break, but it wasn’t severe enough to warrant you fixing it right away, so you put it off?

The car I’m driving now had a problem where it would overheat in traffic. I don’t get in traffic all that often, so I didn’t worry about it. One day, I got stuck and couldn’t get going fast enough to move air through the radiator fast enough, so the broken radiator fan issue became a broken radiator. If only I’d fixed the radiator fans, it would have solved that problem, but I waited and had to fix both.

Tech can be like that. Sometimes, you see a piece starting to go south. Fix it early, so that it doesn’t break more stuff.
