Is it just me that feels this a lot? I build a lot of tools for my own use at work, and then suddenly everyone wants it after seeing what they can do...

    The difficulty is, we have to pre-show them using paperwork but they will not read or understand a proposal even when you spell it out.

    @dfox interestingly, that quote wasn't what he actually said. Search that up on skeptics.stackexchange.com

    Discovered it via the recommended section.

    You're welcome

    @DeveloperACE The quote that really gets me is "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result" which while it isn't typically ascribed to any notable figure it still gets used authoritatively but is both scientifically nonsensical and created by a crime novelist in the '80's
