Re: Petty annoyances

My experience was that everything non-trivial (like all the laptops and serious electronics) was okay with the higher voltage, and I just needed a plug adapter. But the cheap stuff I'd have needed an actual voltage stepper. Not my TV. Isn't that more than a voltage problem though. NTSC vs PAL. Or d...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

Yes, I know how it will play out in practice. The courts will hold that you're allowed to practice those forms of discrimination that they like, but not those that they don't like.

Re: Petty annoyances

Yeah, welded wire reinforcing steel is going to be a lot less of a problem than any sort of rebar. It's like a crappy net for your car. I'd say it's the other way around. Rebar is guaranteed to sink in water and that's about it. It's thick soft iron. Those thin metal wires are stiff and can poke ho...
