Doing computer repairs, by digging into folks’ affairs … deep in the heart of Texas!

computer-repairs.jpgTexas has a wonderfully stupid new law which requires all computer repair technicians to also have a state-issued private investigator license. Seems that under other Texas laws, it is illegal to conduct investigation into folks without such a license and the Texas legislature has decided that computer repairmen, in fixing computers, necessarily engage in some investigation. So they should be licensed.

An advocacy group has already filed a lawsuit over the silly law, hoping to prevent thousands of repair technicians from being convicted of a felony (!) and thrown in the clink just because they didn’t know they needed to be Magnum fucking P.I. to repair a P.C.
