RE: The doors of perception (was Re: Repeater latency)


Just remember, engineers are idiots! LOL

But seriously, engineers often don't take all the needs of the end user
into consideration when they design a product. When it comes to the
service technician, forget about any serious consideration at all!

It is my sincere belief that every engineer should be required to repair
a few pieces of gear every so often so they can remember what it's like!

As far as operation goes, every three months, they should have to slam a
bottle of <insert you favorite alcohol here> and attempt to operate a
complex piece of gear for the first time.

I say all of this from experience and lessons I've learned. The above
comments are not intended to hurt any feelings and are not directed to
any person in particular.

I know Kim has engineering chops, and I was surprised at his response,
was offensive to mine. I don't expect anyone to chime in on my behalf,
do I have an engineering-oriented website vouching for my honor. I
a discussion of reason, instead got one of overriding opinion. This
all too frequently and is extremely frustrating, as I'm sure Kim might 

Kim, my apologies - that last comment was out of line, uttered in 
frustration. My problem.
