Patrick - re "I know I've been way too long in this field when I find it sometimes easier to explain complex life or work issues using a circuit diagram!"

you, at least once in your life, tried to calculate the optimum speed for running under rain, in order to keep yourself as dry as possible. user's manuals are often unnecessary.
