Help with real-time remote repair via Discord: we’re holding an in-person Fixit Clinic this upcoming Saturday (Jan 14) at the San Mateo Public Library 11AM-2PM PST; we have lots of items signed up already (see

To create a blended in-person / virtual experience I plan to have Discord: Global Fixers running from the Library with live video so that you can interact with the in-person participants and repairers.
