Who fixes the computers of the tech-slow when they don't work right,
then?

This is not about arbitrary debugging information. It's about
debugging information at bootup. 

I would also argue that even tech-slow people learn the rhythms of
their computers, and have enough pattern-matching ability to detect
when something is different. 

But yeah, you're mostly right. This is an old argument, and given that
I have been doing nothing but rehashing old arguments maybe I will
give it a rest.
