I left hosting to help grow our Marketing and Design team. Now I manage all our marketing campaigns and deploy an army of creative magicians to bring the brand and fixer lifestyle to the world.

"You might belong in Hufflepuff. Where they are just and loyal. Those patient Hufflepuffs are true, And unafraid of toil." —The Sorting Hat
Hufflepuffs also fair well in Herbology! My garden has produced over 25 types of veggies and herbs. I have over 100 indoor plants and one talkative cat named Walker. When I get a break between meetings, I take a walk with my cat through my garden and water my plants.
My mother was an amazing vocal coach and got me involved with theater, music, and dance starting when I was two. If you're eavesdropping on my convos in the office you'll probably hear me talking about what concert I'm going to next.
My favorite band: Glass Animals
I was never one for team sports, but during the pandemic I picked up golf and skiing!

"Is the process of repairing the circle pad the same as the old 3ds XL?"に関する回答Hey Archie! Comparing these two guides I found that the some of the screws are the same size and head type Phillips #00.

"My camera won't turn on"に関する回答Hey Lizzie, It looks like you're not the only one having problems with this camera turning on. How did you clean the battery contacts after your battery melted? Are the contacts damaged at all? Are you getting any red lights or blinking lights along the base of the lens? Things to try: 1.) Make sure you're using two of the same using alkaline batteries (not heavy buty) and they're inserted into the camera correctly. Even if you think you have 'em in there correctly, check again. 2.) Everything I've read says to use Energizer batteries, but it looks like these people had luck with Panasonic. Not that it should really matter. 3.) Make sure the batteries are fitting tight between the contacts. Many people are having the same problem you are, so let us know what you try next! Good luck!

"How to replace cracked glass on a Canon 50d"に関する回答Hi Bruce ! If you complete this repair yourself, you should upload a guide and share your fix! I did some digging and found a few resources for your repair... It looks like the replacement glass is fairly inexpensive. Check out the ones I found here. You can also follow this guide or the technique this person used to replace the glass. Looks like all you'll need is a suction cup, prying tool, and possibly some heat from something like an iOpener or heat gun to help soften the adhesive on the cracked glass. But don't use too much heat! You wouldn't want to damage the LCD beneath the glass. Hope this helps! -Kelsea
