Tech Talk / Re: Right to Repair
« Last post by daniel1948 on Today at 08:14:21 pm »
I wonder how the silicon valley execs who take such lengths to ensure all repairs are carried out by qualified and accredited vendors feel about services such as airbnb and uber?
I thought cutting through 'needless red tape' with a can do attitude and a disruptive platform was the way forward?
If you arent breaking things you arent moving fast enough?

Or maybe they and their entire purported philosophy is vapid, self serving and full of shit?
When will Musk create the technology to fire billionaires into the sun?!

I don't think that you can generalize "silicon valley execs" as a homogenous group. But I'm pretty sure that the BFE would be capable of sending billionaires into the sun. I just wouldn't count on a billionaire to turn against other billionaires. Actually, I'd rather just tax them at 90% of their total wealth annually than shoot them into the sun. I can think of a certain chief executive of a certain large country that I think should be shot into the sun.

I think that the contract can be breached even if no specific time was established if the delay was unreasonable in the circumstances. The court will consider the standards in the industry, the specific circumstances of the case, and the expectation of the parties.  I'm going with D.

I have not had a tortilla in years.

PM me your address. I'll send you a big stack of them.

There are worse things than week-old tortillas, but I cannot think of very many of them.  :P  But thanks for the offer. :)  They do sell tortillas in the stores here. I'd just rather eat my own home-made bread than store-bought tortillas. I do wish that somebody on the island made lefse. (I think I misspelled it in an earlier post. Yes. I did.)

The more I read about the Dark Ages the Lighter it gets.  ;)

Even the Fall of the Roman Empire is complicated. The Western Empire, then Holy Roman Empire got shaky, but the Eastern Roman Empire lasted up until the Renaissance.

Right, the term "Dark Ages" generally excludes the Byzantine Empire. The abundance and quality of record keeping was quite varied throughout Western Europe from the Migration Period to the High Middle Ages. But even the records that do survive are mostly very self-serving of the clergy and nobility.

If you don't need the money, give it to a charity or someone you know who needs it.

Giving it to a politician, at this time, is a ridiculous  :-\
