I recentlly brought a #FrogPad from an eBay'er who didn't have the time/need to learn it. I mentioned it was to replace my broken one, and he turned out to be a solderer, tinkering since his guitar pickup days, and immediately offered, humbly, to try and fix my keyboard for fun. I'd dropped my old one to the floor with a Mini-USB cable plugged in, and the USB connector snapped it's solder to the mainboard. Well, I mailed my ailing, precious one handed keypad to him using a trusty USPS Flat Rate Box & Bubble wrap combo for Priority Mail and he fixes it to new within 40 minutes of recieving it. What an Amazingly cool tech friend!
Old techies never die, and practically re-incarnate when they meet their next generation.
So pay it forward, people.
