ZDNet UK members are an experienced lot. When you add up all the time they've been in the business, it comes to thousands of years of learning all the tricks and shortcuts to getting the job done.
So I've started a discussion for us to share our best tips. It could be something practical, like how to fix computer fans with a drop of oil. Or it could be more general, like stressing how important it is to network, as member 228922 did. Or perhaps you have an answer for ZDNet UK's Charles McLellan, who bemoaned the curse of the AC adapter.
Everybody has a trick that they've learned over the years. Tell us about it here.
