Hemmings Motor News Blog Blog

Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Fear Strikes Out: Learning To Fix It Even When You Thought You Couldn’t

Posted January 08, 2015 8:30 AM by dstrohl

Despite the title, this blog is not about a baseball movie starring Anthony Perkins. It's about something that scares me-computers. I'll admit it, I'm a computer-phobe. I always have been. I use them to write stories and to find stuff on the web. That's about it. When they fail at those two tasks, which I naively consider to be simple ones, I have zero patience and assume that no matter what the issue is, it will cost at least a few hundred dollars to fix it.

Some of you may have had similar thoughts regarding cars you own or once owned. When something went wrong, you didn't know how to fix it, but you were convinced that it was going to cost some serious coin.

A technophobe learns the value of the internet on Hemmings.

Ignore this. I entered a comment in the wrong location. Can't delete it, but I can edit it.
