"The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at and repair."

Douglas Adams

@neauoire it reminds me of fixing the new macbook...


Adding this to my notes under "Design for Maintenance"

@float13 are you familiar with Design For Disassembly?

Designing for Disassembly ensures that all elements of a product can be disassembled for repair and for end of life.

This allows for and encourages repairs, with the result that a product's life cycle is prolonged; and it allows for a product to be taken apart at the end of its life so that each component can be reclaimed.

@neauoire @float13 was very excited by the updates from Framework Laptops today around this topic. It's new technology, but the idea of a laptop that doesn't require you to purchase a new model and instead just find new parts for is a lovely step in the right direction for the (almost) main stream. Hoping it can be a transitional tool towards permacomputation.

@yet @neauoire @float13 I love the idea of upgrading the main board and then putting the old one into a server chassis.


it's funny to see this after binging tvtropes' Chernobyl pages this morning.
