Ah, yes, the smell of MOSFETS slowly dying in the afternoon shade. Smells like sweet... failure.

Had a dream where I got on a train with my most important stuff, and when I went back to get more luggage, the train left with all my stuff on it. In the dream, my cell phone was among the things, so when I woke up and had it with me, the panic subsided.

I guess the message here is not to leave your stuff on transit and then get off the vehicle, even for a moment, especially in my brain.

New economic idea: I'll hire someone to do my job, and while this frees me up to do more important work, it will still be my job to make sure they do their job, which I guess is still technically my job, but I just don't have to do it because someone else is doing it. They can outsource their job to someone else for a cut in the stakes, as long as the job gets done. This can go on for as many people as it takes to make sure with absolute certainty that the job gets done.
