Hello everyone; welcome to my website – Mark Lawton.Com titled “The Generalist’s Repository”
Please explore the links on the right if you haven’t already landed directly on one from Google!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many thousands of visitors already for having a look at my site, and keeping a look out for new articles.
I don’t aim to be an “expert” or a “specialist” on any one subject, but a “generalist“, where the potential problem(s) can be clearly defined; although I will attempt some answers and possible solutions to the problem(s) as well. They are based upon many main general topics; Hence “The Generalist’s Repository” is an apt title.
This website is a collection of ideas, suggestions, help with some projects on popular and not so popular subjects that I am gradually putting together; hence they are called collectively “The Generalist’s Repository”.
I had been thinking of a title for this website, and apart for my domain name, which is my own name Mark Lawton; I thought “The Generalist’s Repository” would be an appropriate secondary title, as this website is aiming to be fairly general in nature and also about diverse subjects; however the subjects are not always related to each other.
Like anything else in life, what this starts out to be, and what it will become may well be two different things as it “evolves” as they say. Very often as an idea matures, it heads off in a totally new direction, but nonetheless it’s total is the sum of it’s individual parts.
An idea may come to me, or a problem and I may think “aha!“, I wonder if anyone else has had this problem, and did they sort it out; or if they would like to know what a certain item is, or what it does, and how to repair or maintain it.
Another area may be not only what an item does, but how can I fix it, maybe for free, or very cheaply.
Also any modifications, add-ons, or extras may be covered; how to fit them, and where to get them from.
In “The Generalist’s Repository” another key aim is to make things work that didn’t, and also to bypass being ripped off, paying over the odds, or being victimised by cowboys.
Enjoy it, and I hope it helps; and as they say “every little helps”
Check back for new topics and links. The pictures are a combination of my own, and appropriate material sourced elsewhere on the web.
The Illustrations below sourced from the web illustrate the Generalist’s vs Specialist’s approach.
Each type of person has its own place, and neither one is better than the other.
