knew a man called earl, from Utah; he had many kids; signed off his emails as the duke of hazzard; drove an old beaten hatchback, twisted more half way on his lower back, every time he merged into a highway, to beat his blindspots. So this earl makes me curious..
hw heroics apart, i look for for sw that's certifiable in spirit, provably unbreakable. most operating systems in that category, have an addon very expensive package, to pass a certification lab, mostly coverage tests&results I think
hw wise, in this category of devices, i look for a no fail SOS. recent case, a Harvard physicist was trapped overnight when the polar vortex slipped, almost lost his toes to frostbite that night when he could see the light glow of Logan airport in Boston, but no terrestrial radio coverage. he was Laki, nature let him live for a reason me thinks. then there's that real mv, 127hrs.. poor sod without a buddy. i rest my case
