You would have to change the code in the PROM for every system to make it unique.
Then you're also assuming that no one will be able to figure out how to solder out the prom for another device.
Then you're also figuring out that no one will produce a patch to return back a different imei even if i was hardcoded.

And manufacturing the exact same thing over and over is way more cost effective than anything that has a one off process.

There is a technical solution for this.
Have the system report back a heartbeat with status.
It's done today to report back when an antenna is disconnected. GPS receivers can do this. It's probably due to the change in impedance. In a system that has multiple antennas, checking the change and reporting it back o a certain location is fairly quick and simple.

Any car out in the field that fails a heartbeat should mandate that it come back in for servicing immediately.

Manual random checks or filing out paperwork is just plain outdated.

Actually demanding someone's password for any reason is the big picture here. It doesn't matter if she did it at home or at school.
The school should focus on what it's supposed to do, teach students. It shouldn't be policing the facebook pages of it's students.

Or you know
people will get their hands on robot and 3d printing, transform scrap yards into nice looking buildings and create industry themselves and have all their needs met while being opposed to corporate control.
It'll be a race at that point, who can defend themselves. I'm hoping a community collective can meet their own needs and offer resistance.

His first sentence states that
"Bow hunting is for unethical assholes."
That is applying his own morals and ethics determining that a group of hunters are unethical and assholes. He doesn't say this is an opinion, he/she states this as fact.

Since he set this statement in place. I stated that he was imposing his own beliefs and making a judgement on a whole swath of people because of what they do. Important to note: Not why they do it.

Recurve and composite bows are a natural evolution of a traditional. I don't really get what you're trying to say.

Because it's practice.
Because even sport killers usually sell the carcases to someone who can skin it/make food out of it.
Drones won't shoot, they're used to scout.
What exactly is a low powered file?

What exactly is wrong about practicing survival skills? I think you're assuming that people do this for pleasure, but maybe it's just practice. There are a lot of scenarios that having some time practicing survival skills can be a matter of life and death. But you went ahead and assumed that it's just for fun. Good for you.

Bow hunting is for people who want to practice archery in a practical way.
Boo fucking hoo it hurts the animals. It gives out basic survival skills that even in this day and age are important to know.
For whatever reason if humanity gets knocked back into the stone age who is going to survive? The hunter who knows how to craft their own bows/arrows and use them or the one who only ethically kills with a gun?
Stop imposing your own set of morals and ethics on everyone else. There's reasons why people practice this form of hunting for a hundred thousand years. The human race would of gone extinct if they sat around thinking of a way to survive while also making sure it was painless.
