Re: It never ceases to amaze me ...
But for the first 100 years of that, steam engines were condensing and worked at (or below) atmospheric pressure. A vacuum gauge would have been more useful.

Yes, it's a legal thing but if it is in any way effective it will limit what companies can produce, or at least sell. The trick is to get the balance right so that measures intended to limit reparability (like, say, welding the case shut) are banned but design features that are intended to improve the product (like welding the case shut) aren't. You see the problem. I'm no lawyer, and obviously I haven't read the New York law, so I can say how well (or even if) it addresses this but it something that right to repair laws need to do.
Not the Government, the state or indeed just the people. Fiat currency doesn't disappear with a change of government or even of regime. Any not completely barking revolutionaries will honour the currency of the old regime because they don't want to inherit a non-functioning economy. They may however make modifications.
Or maybe not.
