Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I assumed that you were not sure about the situation in the Netherlands, so I wanted to give some backup.
Well, I do not know about the Netherlands, but in Germany the losing party always pays the winners fees.. Both in civil and in criminal cases.
And when the cats are gone and the coyotes have learned that trashcans are easier prey than mice and rats, the latter will finally be free.
I, for my part, welcome my new open source overlord.
An anonymous reader writes "Peter Jansen, a PhD student and member of the RepRap community, has constructed a working prototype of an inexpensive table-top laser cutter built out of old CD/DVD drives as an offshoot of his efforts to design an under $200 open-source Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printer. Where traditional laser cutters use powerful, fixed-focus beams, this new technique dynamically adjusts the focal point of the laser using a reciprocating motion similar to a reciprocating saw, allowing a far less powerful and inexpensive laser diode to be used. The technique is currently limited to cutting black materials to a depth of only a few millimeters, but should still be useful and enabling for Makers and other crafters. The end-goal is to create a hybrid inexpensive 3D printer that can be easily reconfigured for 2D laser cutting, providing powerful making tools to the desktop."
The landfill issue can be ended if the following question can be answered with "yes":
Can it be hacked?
Can it be hacked?
So, if I ever do so, I better pull the plug and sink my own boat and let the insurance pay?
Where is the free enterprise on which the country is always said to be built, now?
When people drive by your home do you chase them away like a barking dog?
Of course not, that darn dog has to do something to earn his keep.
WE do what? The availability of sleepers is declining fast, most are old and will not be replaced when their time is up.
On the other hand we had no choice in putting up that legal system, it was dictated by our genetics, too.
