The "If only I knew then what I know now... LOL" comment always makes me thing about a line from a Bob Seger song.

"Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then..."

As I get older and more wisened, that line seems to apply more and more. Oh to be young and dumb again.

@BobGroh: ...sometimes we manage to skate by them and sometimes .... well, we don't.

But we certainly learn a lot along the way LOL

If only I knew then what I know now... LOL

Yep, we all have our share of 'not-so-good' ideas.  Sometimes we manage to skate by them and sometimes .... well, we don't.

@BobGroh: ...at least once, because my idea was really, really bad and the design just didn't pan out...

LOL  Back in 2000 I formed a company with two friends -- we had 10 good years, then in 2010 we had a really good idea and committed all of our company's money to it...

...it turned out to be not-so-good idea and we had to close the doors -- the others got real jobs and I roamed wild and free as a freelance consultant. We live and learn...

I like design contests.  I done a variety of them over the years, don't always finish them (sometimes due to time pressure and, at least once, because my idea was really, really bad and the design just didn't pan out) but always enjoy the process.
