Re: [at-l] The purpose



The irony is that it is an engineering maxim that you cannot have cheap,

that it has been captured by professional business managers. Business
managers believe that you can convince people that they can have
'faster, better, cheaper', and indeed you CAN convince people of that.
But you cannot convince physics.
