The times they are a-changin’.

One of the things that they don’t teach you in engineering school is that things very frequently don’t turn out like you planned, and sometimes you have to improvise: this is what sets apart good engineers (those who merely get good grades in school) from great ones (those who understand adversity, appreciate elegant simplicity and know how to react when things go wrong. And they barely made it out of school).

It’s all true. Validation at last.
