"Ambition is the side effect of a finite (limited) mind"

... another 'hard truth' from Sandeep's deceptively understated blog.  I haven't even watched the video yet, as I am still simmering from the impact of this statement.  Stoical acceptance is an exercise that we so often forget, and as developers it really should be one of our core tenants.

"There is a point at which a solution is just enough to solve a problem. Anything less and it won't solve the problem and anything more will only add marginally utility."

"... Deadstarts could be initiated by using a hardware button between the two console "eyes" or under the single console screen in later systems. Another way was using the deadstart switch adjacent to the deadstart panel. After some time, system programmers and operators were very experienced in "toggling in" the deadstart program in the 16 or 20 rows with switches. It was always amazing that one could (warm)start from a deadstart tape (later a disk) using only seven to 12 PP words located in the deadstart panel."
