Being an engineer is enough punishment. oh wait...I mean, being an engineer demands instant respect.

Just to stick my nose (and noise) in. Zero is a softy, wishywashy and not firm in his convictions. It only took 40 pages of verbal abuse for me to get him to admit that I may have a point but he didn't agree with it. He even quit calling me names and questioning my grasp on reality! Zero believe it or not; IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT YOU!

Russ- is a working engineer? Isn't that and oxymoron? As a technician who has worked under, with and for engineers I think they should have stuck to driving trains. Rus didn't you say that you had graduated from Anapolis Naval Acadamy or was it West Point? Either way my condolences. First you have to do something before we can criticize you. Keep up the good.... Uh....work(?).
As I learned in the Navy a long time age; "Indecision
is the keynote to flexablity."

I have been called to task (sometimes rightfully so) far more by members who are not mentors than by mentors. For the most part I think that they (all of you) do a fine job even if and when we disagree. Of course they do a much better job when they do agree or at least defend me or my positions. Thanks to all of you.

Greg,

Why when I click quote on your last post does the phrase "should != must" appear just before the closing "[/B][/QUOTE]" tags?

What would you like to happen? Sounds normal to me.

Perhaps if the technicians could get the trains to run properly...

Getting the trains to run properly is the hard part. After all they are not only driven by enguineers but designed and buil by engineers.
The only reason engineers are allowed o drive trains is that they are on rails and the engineer/driver can't steer them the wrong way and get lost.
