This is my report on the differences of Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman.
I'm sorry its not a work of art I have been a little busy of the past few weeks. But I will improve as time goes on.

First I'll do the similarities of the two then differences.

The first i noticed (this is also most obvious) there both programmers of free software.
But here are some more: They both have masters in computing and science. Both are software engineers.They both had there first interactions with computers without mothers or fathers involved.

Some differences are Richard was born in New York and went to Harvard where as Linus was born in Finland and went to the university of Helsinki. Linus is married with kids Richard Doesnt have ether.

More updates tomorrow.

Consumer guarentees act

This post is about the consumer guarantees act.

The act was put in place to stop faulty and unfair selling and buying of goods.

The act covers:
  • Goods of a type normally buy for ordinary household or personal use.
  • New and used goods bought on or after 1st April 1994
It does not cover:
  • Goods bought but action of tender
  • Goods bought from a private seller
There are a number of remedies dependent on the situation. Whether the object is broken or not how serious the problem is.

Most of this is from the ministry of consumer affairs.
