"Fewer moving parts means fewer broken pieces."
(Which reminds me, there's another starship-repair post coming up, possibly even with illustrations).
BUILDING A 1:1 BALUN

The further and continuing adventures of the girl who sat in the back of your homeroom, reading and daydreaming.
A bowling ball has one moving part. If you break that part you are 2 things.
First, you are out of the bowling bidness.
And second, you are very impressive, and I want to shake the hand of one so skilled.
I have a LOT fewer moving parts these days. Wonder what that means.
Designers appear to be forgetting the KISS principal more and more frequently. It a real challenge in software development where scope creep must be constrained.
Goodie, goodie, goodie. More Starship stories! That's one of my Xmas wishes.
It has been that I was given an anvil to play with when I was young, but I kept breaking it...
Crucis touches on what I was going to say: That's true even in software. Simple parts. Do one thing and do it well (the Unix way).
Why they don't let me babysit anymore.
No matter what happens I try to fit into the evening:
"You happy now? You BROKE it!"
It ends in tears and nothing has to actually be broken...
