Re: AoS

Perhaps do a print of the three words daily thread and post to his Mrs along with MP3 of Elbow, Grounds For Divorce. Then perhaps she knows what a perve he is?

Re: How much !

Re: Right to repair.

Technology moves so fast there is no benefit to keeping things. I now wash my clothes in 1/4 of the time to a higher standard of cleanliness. Technology may move on but reliability goes downhill. Things should be repairable from an environmental perspective. The performance differences are often ma...

My main gripe (due to the US fear of litigation) is them deleting thread...
