Right to repair.

This is a partly political broadcast on behalf of Doz...

If you're in Europe (as I am until the end of March). This is important.

Stand up for your right to repair.

If you're in that odd bit of the planet, where earth is ground, and the mains wobbles up and down a bit faster, but not as far as here, valves are tubes, and tubes are CRT's (I'm talking about the USA).

We can't keep chucking this stuff away! And, repairing brings an amazing feeling of satisfaction (I know, I've been fixing things for 40 years)

Don't let this stall.

Sign the petition, and make the world a better place.

***STOP PRESS***

This turned up on IFL science this morning too...
