Too bad he turned into a snob along the way. Maybe it is that he was not getting the major offers he had already spent in his mind (or promised to the Admiral?). Still, one heck of a thread, and deserves a place in the annals of CF stickies... I am of mixed mind on this one, but a heckuva read.
I'm with you a good read. I am not sure it was entirely honest? Never the less I'd like to hear the outcome.

Re: Breaking All the Rules ...

Interesting read. I see most of the valuable info came from the OP. I fully agree on the limited value of hiring "experts" when dealing with complex issues. Hell, I check the work done when having the oil changed in my truck. Too many YouTube techs out there.

True apprenticeship programs are almost a thing of the past as is pride in a craft.
