Quebec is a ridiculous backwater corrupt banana republic with a monstrous, bloated bureaucracy that not even Google can deal with.
from Canada? Are they all evil?
"his robotic wheel can change its radius to create larger wheels to climb over things"
...I don't think the "smooth plastic tyres" (lol) were the point here, Anorak-Prime.
So things never improve?
(yay! I can use hilarious foreign phrases too!)
Well neither were PCs of the era. Try to get EMS memory programs to run with EMM? No luck. Maybe install a driver in your config.sys? But then it would break other programs. Want to get a CD-ROM? Which type would it be, the kind that hung off your special sound card's bus, a stand-alone CD controller or IDE?
What about your mouse? Think you can bring your mouse over to your friend's house? Hmm, was that a serial mouse or a bus mouse? Which bus?
Got a new sound card? Think that program that only supported the old Soundblaster would work with your new Turtle Beach card? Wait, how many hours of trial and error config.sysing is that going to be?

A "clean sheet" from what? All the stuff that happened before.

Still joining me in the eye roll?
You mean besides the technological base from WWII and the 1950s Cold War ICBMs, sure, "from scratch"...
Commence eye roll sequence, eye roll sequence initiated.
Hold for half an hour.
"From scratch"... They weren't baking a cake.
Do you also think we never went to the bottom of the Challenger Deep because there's no base there?
Wow, talk about giving someone the rope to hang themselves with...
"alot" isnot aword.
Well at least it wasn't his brother, Gassy Noel.
I no longer have any patience, I'm old. When people tell me how important the environment is I ask them how many kids they have. It's amazing how few people see the connection between themselves and the world.
