Not Always Practical
My father always said that one’s craft is a reflection of them as a person. It can tell you everything you need to know about them, about how their mind words, and whether or not they’re going to be reliable. Granted this was before such the corpos got it into their systems that it’s better to restrict access and only let certified techs do any maintenance. But let me ask you where’s a tech out here on the frontier. No one wants to come to the fringe. Not least anyone with anything good on their mind. Those that come here are compelled as it were. They come here by the skin of their teeth and they hold on to life like a bear on something or other. So the only techs you get are the outlaw kind and they want to be charging folks a pretty penny for servicing what’s really an extension of ourselves. Not like it takes a doc to fix these things. Crafts come in all shapes and sizes but the fundamentals the same. Just like people. And like people crafts are clean or not, working or not. Some even have a fundamental flaw so deep that we ain’t gonna be working that one out with no wrench.
Least that’s what my father always said. Course he was one of them outlaw techs charging a pretty penny so he knew a thing or two. Just didn’t know when to help others and when to call it business.
