One example of too-much-integration I have. My edge router (Deutsche Telekom, Germany, some Fritzbox variant) has integrated modem, WAP and switch. Despite the fact that my entire house is wired with CAT6 and I have a patch panel and rack in the cellar my WAP/Router/Switch box is physically constrained by the point the phone line comes into the house, and by the room's geometry. The problem is that, from there, the WiFi reception is very spotty in some places, most notably my favourite bench in the kitchen where I like to browse the days news on my iPad early in the morning with coffee before the kids wake up.

Since I can't split the devices I had to buy another WAP to get reasonable reception in the kitchen cause that is a major use-case for me.

A biocontainment ward in a hospital DOES have a special toilet, and they DO disinfect basically everything the whole time, up to incinerating things.

One of the prime reasons medical care is so expensive is that you can't re-use lots of things, you have to destroy them.

You have a tendency to feel you are superior to most computers.
