    Its gonna be the same as BMW turning an ignition from headquarters or i heard a cracker the other day , the huge green n white machines the farmers drive made by CLAAS, any way i was doing work for this farmer and one of his workers were telling me that the farmer owed claas 24g and one day the machine went dead while driving through the field so james (farmer) called up claas to say he had a problem with machine and they told him it wont come on till the 24g was paid, he paid it right there over the phone and the machine started straight away, sorry for long speel but it seems to be the era of WIRELESS MICRO GIGA BYTES, eh

    But if they were going to install that kind of tec in a boiler then surely they could just extend it to tell the manufacturer whats wrong or if a service is due...

    Then kerching - the manufacturer gets all the work and they pre empt faults or poor performance.

    Using that argument ray we would have to move cars up in line with drugs and fire arms as they kill many times more people than the last two put together

    Thats partly true Steve.

    Its also in the normal distribution of skills and inclination to do hard work. Both skill and work-ethic are "probably" distributed on a standard bell-curve. That means that there are a few tradesmen that are absolutely crap, a moderate number that are ok-ish, quite a large number that are broadly competent, a moderate number who are very skilled, and a tiny number of utter geniuses.

    Similarly, there will be a few bone-idle, a few more who will do a bit of work when pushed, the majority who will do a decent days work, a smaller number who will go beyond whats reasonable, and a tiny number who are absolute obsessive workaholics.

    Not many will be work-a-holics and completely talentless, although you do get the occasional lazy genius.

    But given the number of tradesmen, even a relatively small percentage of incompetent ones means a lot of duff installations every day of the year. Some will be duff because a good tradesman was put under intolerable pressure to do a days work in 2 hours by a bad employer or a penny pinching client. But lots will be duff because in reality, the percentage of bad trademen is just the same as the percentage of bad nurses, teachers, policemen and, (whisper it quietly) plumbers merchants.
