There is no solution, nothing has any real value anymore.
In the "old" days you could design and build something on your own that when
finished was worth more then the time and material taken to build it, those
days are gone. I used to toy around making home stereo speakers, these days
buying the drivers, quality crossovers, and building the cabinet will set me
back more then just buying a good brand of speakers. Same with computers,
building your own will probably end up costing more then the same quality
DELL on sale. So there is no incentive to do it on your own. There are many
people coding software available for free, so most people do not even try
coding on their own anymore unless it is for some old unsupported system.
Most people don't bother hacking hardware anymore either, any function they
could want is available on a single chip, there is no reason for the masses
to even bother.
