Youth v the 'Unka Barts'
I've gathered my thoughts wrt youth, enthusiasm and it's reckless disregard
for established fences and authority.... We all agree that a better IC in
audi turbo cars is a screaming need. I've certainly come to realize
Sachelle's project is going to yield him more knowledge than any book or
paper or reference. A great thing, reminds me of the way I started and
executed projects, but now rarely do. As we age, time becomes our worst
enemy, and our best advocate for finding out what and why others do/did what
was done. I metaphorically envision smaller steps with age, with smaller
gains of forward momentum, but minimal losses of time, dollars and traction.
Copper IC's? I'm smiling at the intellectual drool when enthusiasm and youth
are awed by a potential 40%increase in heat exchange efficiency of materials,
just by using copper instead of aluminum (several old farts heard to whisper:
All else being equal).
So this cremudgeony old lister gathers his trusty 'trigger', and tries to
rope the young stallion, to point out the well learned established rule of
fences, you are guilded thru them, it's not necessary to jump them. Jealousy
of youth, or the experienced scars of misjudged fence height?
A public apology to Sachelle, from an old list cremudgeon. Sachelle, best of
luck to you in your quest.
