Sink P-trap

Medicine cabinet fail. I had a shelf collapse and drop part of my shaving razor down the drain. Here's taking off the P-trap to retrieve the sunken item.

1. The contents of a P-trap is a lot more gross than pictured. I cleaned it up for the photo. 
2. I have strainer on the bathroom sink now.

BMW e36 cabin air filter

The e36 has the most ridiculous location for an air cabin filter. It's deep underneath the dashboard. Changing it requires removing the entire glove compartment. I had a feeling it was rarely changed, but what I pulled out ended up being the car's original filter from 1998!

Logitech G700 mouse switch replacement

A pretty common malfunction for this mouse, after years of use, is to have the primary click button not keep the circuit closed when you hold it down. Click + hold sometimes registers as double click. Logitech has a lifetime warranty, but since this model is discontinued, and the newer model they would send (S700s) as a replacement is ugly looking, I decided to replace the problematic switch myself.

There's plenty of replacement Omron switches on ebay. Most mice use the same one, so you can even salvage one from an old unused mouse.
