Thanks for the support for me and, more importantly, for Gino.
We are all just custodians of the information we have gathered. Our
task is not to hoard it but to share it with others who are
interested. Hopefully, when put together, it all makes some sense
and recreates not only the events that happened 'way back when' but
also why they happened. The more information you have to evaluate,
I was fortunate that years ago Bob Bedford let me copy part of his
clippings file on the Electric Division. I was lucky enough not to
lose it in all the moves I have made. The information in it is of no
use if it sits in my file cabinet, never to see the light of day.
This message board is a way of sharing information and opinions, of
asking questions and receiving answers. We're fortunate that Gino
has moderated it for us. Myself, I've learned so much from it.
The same applies to Gino's website, too. Did anyone else's heart
sink when access to it appeared gone? Again, there is a lot of
useful information there, information which Gino has willingly shared
with us, information which we have shared with each other.
One fellow I supervised some time ago took a too-proprietory attitude
to the loss data he processed. I had to remind him, "Zeke, they're
not your losses. They're the company's. We're just letting you play
with them for a while."
