"Oh, you mean the speedometers that have both measurements on them already? All US cars do. Why the ignorance?"
We wish that was true. Even cars made today have the MPH on them with maybe hash marks for KPH. My wife's 2009 Malibu doesn't even label the KPH scale at all.
"It drives me crazy that I need both a metric and a standard set of socket wrenches and hex keys"
Me too, I want a set that is a mix of metric and SAE. At least the SAE sizes should be in metric first with the SAE size added as an afterthought.
I hear your song, but I heard it before by the HDD cover band before the SSD members were even born. All hardware is prone to not coming back up after the power was cut (or turned off in the case of a laptop I have), SSD is not special in this. It appears you have heard it, but if not, tune in to the greatest hits channel and you will hear the number 1 song for the past 30 years: "Always have working up to date backups". I'm glad your backups work.
I probably is a typo though given the proximity of "," and "." on the keyboard. It is rare for that notation to appear. Normally if the number is going to be abbreviated though it is 61.6k acres.
