The rig around solution

Duct tape and WD-40 are really all you need to make something work properly. Enough duct tape and you can keep a part in place. Enough WD-40 and you can make a part move.

It would seem solutions are solutions. Who needs a mechanic?

For short-term problems, this is great. But for something long-term, investing in the appropriate repairs is well worth it.

Because of my ignorance in coding, every time I post something, I have to go in and manually create a redirect for the article’s archive link. That seems easy now, but if I’m still doing this in five years, I will have spent more money on WD-40 than it would have cost me to fix the problem in the right way.

Very rarely do short-term fixes fix long-term problems.
