Yes I'd rather be physically maimed than live in a nanny state, becasue a nanny state is what you are advocating.

Individual choice and responsibility play a very important role in healthy human society, sadly it appears the people making the laws have forgotton that.

I know this was written in jest but somewhere along the way society has taken a wrong turn with so much legislation being enacted taking the place of ration thinking and common sense.

You see it at some street corners where local councils have errected a dozen street signs on a single corner in an attempt to keep up with the growing number of ways a motorist can screw up. What they fail to realise is that when they errect a dozen signs on a single corner it becomes a dangerous distraction.

Unfortunately this all leads us further down the road to Stupidity. The more the government legislates to protect us from ourselves the dumber we become, a spiraling cycle. We need greater, wiser minds to get involved, minds that are not so quick to write laws for circumstances that really just required a little common sense and thought.

Re: iPad and Woodworking?

I'll be getting this when it becomes available primarily for for my home automation. I would also use it for FWW articles and videos if available as it will make it very easy for me to take them out to the workshop as a terrific resource.
I've been thinking about taking out a PC but it would take up a lot of space and would be a lot of work to dust proof it, I just haven't gotten around to it yet.
This seems to be a perfect size for your articles, and a great opportunity.

Regards.

I've had my eye on one of those DriftMaster fences for a while now. The fence that came with my saw was never accurate and the DriftMaster appears to embody everything that I would want in a fence. It appears very well made too.
