I had a client fry three HDD that way. Then I had another client that killed her computer by being a chain smoker and putting it in a cabinet. She was pissed when I told her warranty was void. Then I had a client that thought I was an idiot. I went out five times to replace a faulty HDD. Thing is they kept on giving me refurbished HDD. Oh the equally fun part about replacing a customers HDD is when they ask about their data. All those missing photos and emails.

Weirdest problem I've ever heard was with a printer switch. A college of men was dispatch. to fix a printer that would not turn on. This was an old ball printer made by some french company. He called me for help as a fresh set of eyes. The logic board was replaced, power supply and switch replace. I finally deiced to take the entire printer apart to trace wires. What did I find? The switch was wired to a relay that was powered by a 9volt battery. The battery had died. That's some deep BOFH at work there. Kind of like the arcade machines that held the game code in ram and when the on board battery died the machine was bricked.

CDL is required for transporting haz mat.

" I doubt consumer quantities will require any special endorsements or training."

And you would be wrong. I know a trucker that got $1000 for having four open paint cans on the back of his flat bed. a gallon on motor oil into a river can do a lot of damage

The CDL is need to transport hazmat material . In the US if you are being paid to transport haz mat you need a CDL and haz mat endorsement no matter what you drive it in.

The hazardous materials regulations are applicable to the transportation of hazardous materials in commerce and their offering to:

Interstate, intrastate, and foreign carriers by rail car, aircraft, motor vehicle and vessel.

The representation that a hazardous material is present in a package, container, rail car, aircraft, motor vehicle or vessel.

The manufacture, fabrication, marking, maintenance, reconditioning, repairing or testing of a package or container which is represented, marked, certified or sold for use in the transportation of hazardous materials (49 CFR 171.1(a))

GENERAL DOT HAZARDOUS MATERIALS REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS

"No person may offer or accept a hazardous material for transportation in commerce unless that person is registered in conformance with subpart G of Part 107 of this chapter, if applicable, and the hazardous material is properly classed, described, packaged, marked, labeled, and in condition for shipment as required or authorized..."(49 CFR 171.2(a))

Underlined in the preceding extract from the Hazardous Materials Regulations are three important terms; "person," "offeror" and "commerce" (See Appendix A Definitions). The word shipper is frequently used by industry in place of the word "offeror." For the purpose of this document only, the term shipper and "offeror" are used interchangeably. These three words are important in that they define when you are subject to the jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation. Additionally, you may be subject to the requirements of other Federal and/or State Laws.

Here is some thing to think about. In the US when you get auto insurance they ask is for personal use or business. Obviously business rates are much higher. now if you get into an accident and they find out kiss you insurance good bye.

Oh and here is another sweet gem. Lets say you as an invidious buy 4 bottles of bleach and take it home no problem. If you transport it for money you needs a CDL with a hazmat endorsement. Then requires finger printing and a back ground check. lord have mercy if have some thing like li ion batteries.

Re: Marry a laptop?

No he is say the same sex marriage is wrong and absurd , that we must abide be his definition of marriage. In his mind letting gays get married is destruction of marriage (like he has the rights to that word). So in his mind if two guys can get hitched why can't marry my dog, my gun my computer. Wait on second though I would not mind if he married a shot gun and tried to consummate that marriage .

Re: "That is a far too juicy target to not get hacked"

In the US that would be felony murder/capital murder/ murder in the 1st. Which means if you are in the wring state the death penitential. Or the charge under federal law.

In all states there is a rule that says if some dies while you commit a crime that's 1st degree murder.

Re: The law

Jason Bloomberg

IF you are talking about a storage place the law is they auction your stuff off or dispose of what they can not sell. Some times they sell it piece meal some times they sell the whole storage locker and the buyer is buying a pig in the poke as the can only see the stuff at the front of the locker. Either way they are not getting their stuff back if it was physical goods. Physical goods would of been disposed of much sooner than 8 months.

Re: Once you send your data to the cloud

Nope depending on the state it could be as little as 30 days or 90 days and the stuff is considered abandon . Once that thresh hold is met the land lord can do what ever he or she wants. Toss it, sell it, burn it in an open pit. California is one of the few states that you have to hold stuff after an eviction(14 days) but we are talking about some he walked away for over 8 months. There is no requirement to store abandon property.

Re: Once you send your data to the cloud

In the US if a renter abandons the place. Typically after 30 days with written letters or 90 days you can chuck it. Some places once you a court eviction you can toss the stuff the same day with out a judges. Some places make you wait up to 30 days. If you abandon the property and stop paying for 8 months no court is required to dispose the stuff in the US. it will be looked at as abandon property. in fact you could sue for the clean up cost. So to answer your question yes by US law MS should be allowed to delete the data. Since this is in the US.
