assuming the issue is really the tools are lost and not "lost" (i.e. taken home), a simple scale that weights the whole box would be way easier to implement and more robust -> one button to "take measurement" before starting work, one to "check" when on the way out, will tell you "something is missing", "everything cool" or actually "you packed half of your customers tools as well".

"In a Self-Driving Future, We May Not Even Want To Own Cars" ... uhm, I neither own nor want to own a car now. Jeah, I'm a socialist european hippie who lives in a big city with useful public transportation. Deal with it. The two times a year I actually transport something other than myself I can rent whatever car I like and still get away with 95% winnings over owning a car (and esp. paying for all the crap like insurance and gas).

For heating, a stove is great, both when it comes to any supposed outages (also of electricity) as well as making for really cosy living. Also wood is pretty cheap and a renewable energy source.

Depends on if you are more afraid of a power outage or gas crysis ;) You can also use bottled gas for most gas stoves (though you need to configure them for it) which makes you more independent from short-term outages.

this is actually also wrong for mechanical watches, as they take a constant amount of energy. So no matter how many times you look at the watch and do other things, you can be sure you don't have to rewind outside of your usual schedule (which is normally once in the morning, and takes no 30 seconds, and you don't even have to take off the device). So Apple's Watch is even a step back from mechanical watches.

and you totally didn't ever have to read any man-pages to get what the bash script does ... jeah right ... on the premise of having to learn what both scripts do starting from zero, I am pretty sure the systemd version would win by a huge margin. Its just people being lazy and pissed off that they have to actually educate themselves about new stuff.

How many Unix hacks does it take to change a light bulb? Let's see, can you use a shell script for that or does it need a C program?
