I am all about the DIY. In fact, between hours spent watching home improvement TV and looking up home renovation how to's online, it almost fells like I could build a house from scratch....well almost. What I haven't done, because frankly I have been to scared to, is ripped open my iPod to replace a now faulty battery. Maybe if I wasn't flying blind and had step by step instructions with high quality photography to hold my hand through the process I would give it a shot. It looks like that time has come.
